Whining/Humming Noise when Driving??

I have a 2006 G6 V6 sedan with 59k miles....and there is a strange whining almost humming noise when I drive definitely coming from around the wheels. Would it be a bad wheel bearing or tie rod possibly? rotors or brake issue? HELP!!

The owners manual says the brakes will make a high pitch noise when they need service.

I am sure I am just wasting my breath but tires, can make alot of noises, when they are low, out of align, bald...etc.
drive your car on a flat three lane road and sway from left to right, and see if the pitch changes that is the easiest way to tell bad wheel bearings.

Also it could be a wheel hub bearing... I have a 08 gt and have a whinning/ vibrating sound coming from the front right tire area.. I took it to the Dealer today and he said it's the wheel hub bearing is shot. They had to order the part but once I get it fixed on Friday I will let you know if thats what it was or not. Other ideas might be that the tire came out of balance, breaks might be low, or tires are bald.

My dad took the car to a mechanic this week and he said my passenger side front wheel bearing was BEYOND shot. It was seized onto my axle!

We got a bearing hub from a wrecked 2007 Malibu with 3k miles on it. Replaced the bearing, brake pads and rotors and the noise was gone. I do love my car but I don't think I'll buy another one after the loan is paid off.

was wondering if anyone knew the mechanic is saying that the hub and bearing are married and that the bearing has to be replaced by getting a whole new hub and bearing.sounds weird cause on the diagram on gmpartdirect they have the bearing for sale 30+dollars. why would they sell just a bearing by itself???

sometimes the bearing can be done by itself. most of the time when the two have been seized "married," then they need to be replaced together.
