I've only experienced 2 instances of bad wheel bearings on a FWD vehicle, but for those there was a very noticeable noise on lower speed, fairly sharp turns. Generally, if you hear it when making a right turn, it's the left front bearing hub. On a left turn, the right hub. It's based on the high axial loading to the bearing on turns. Have you rotated the tires to see if the problem follows the tire? (bad tread problem, shifted cord, etc)

Sometimes, if bearing bad enough, you can grab tire (with car in air) and wobble the bearing..

You find this less and less common today. Today's sealed bearing hub assemblies rarely exhibit a wobble you can feel by lifting the vehicle and trying to shake the wheel. I know I couldn't feel it that way at all on the 2 minivan failures I had. I suppose if you let it get REALLY bad you might get some wobble.
