    I have replaced both rear wheel bearings. The noise sounds like on LR while driving. Still there. Replaced the front wheel bearings now, still there. While driving if you swerve back and forth, there is spot noise gets better. Could it be, that new bearing be bad?
    Tires has 5,000 miles on them.

    Depends on where you got them. Our right rear bearing went bad at 71k, and my (now former) mechanic installed a crummy counterfeit on there that blew out in less than 10k miles.

    Is your car a Prius c, or one of the liftback models? I noticed you posted in the c section, yet you list having a 2011.
