Default Right rear whurring noise

I'm trying to diagnose a loud whirring noise coming from the passengers rear tire. When I'm taking sharp right hand turns (so that there is no pressure on said tire) the noise stops. I thought it could have been a warped tire, but I have since replaced all the tires and the noise is still there. The faster you go, the louder it gets.

Spindle?
Hub?
Thoughts?

It gets quieter when I turn so pressure is released from the tire(turning right), possibly louder but no significant difference between turning left.

When I jack the wheel up and push on either side of it, there isn't much wobble. I'm used to a CJ5 with 35" tires as far as wheel bearings go, where there is a lot of wobble when the wheel bearing is shot.

possible bent hub or maybe take a look at your caliper if one of the pistons are stuck and dragging

Wheel bearing. When mine went there was no play. . .but the noise went away once I replaced it. Try getting a stethoscope and listening to the knuckle as you turn the wheel. Chances are you'll hear something grating.

It's a wheel bearing. Time to slap a new one in.
