How do you know if the wheel bearing is bad?

Failing wheel bearings can cause a rumbling or clicking noise while turning and while driving at speeds greater than 15 miles per hour. Wheel bearings, also known as hub bearings, need to be replaced if they are found to be worn, loose, or leaking during related repairs or inspections. If your steering is a little loose or the noise gets worse when you step on the brake, you may need to replace a wheel bearing. If there is play in the wheel (up and down) or the tire spins a bit faster than the wheel hub, it could be a sign of a bad wheel bearing.
