Default tire noise?

so the last 3 weeks or so I have been getting a noise from my front right tire area. At first I thought it was a wheel bearing because it sounded the same as my driver side did when it went out. I replaced the wheel bearing, seals, and put a new ball joint on while I was down there. The tires look fine and rims don't look bent. The sound is still happening though, everything was tight and torqued to specs when I put it back together. The sound is more noticeable around 45 and if I turn slightly to the left it gets louder, if I turn to the right a little the sound almost goes away completely its kind of a vum vum vum sound that speeds up with the speed of the car. Im kinda at a loss here any advice?

Update: did a tired rotation and still sounds the same while I was doing this I checked over my brakes and noticed the bottom slide pin is sticking so I greased it but it still doesnt slide like the top pin does is this normal? Also I said before, the noise stopped if I turned to the right but you can actually still hear it its just not as loud..

Even though you just changed the bearing, was the hub changed to?
If the hub is bad it will kill a brand new bearing in VERY short order.

What you describe is TEXTBOOK wheel bearing.

hub wasn't changed there was no visible damage, it had no slack when bearing and hub were pressed together, and it was smooth without any imperfections on the shaft. I have had the hub go out on the driver side and it was way loose even when pressed together with bearing and it never made a noise like how the passenger side is making. I was thinking something with the brakes is going on like I said about the slide pins the bottom is sticking and I have been noticing allot more brake dust than normal.
