Jack the car up and check for any free play (Wobble) in the wheels. Have you had new tyres fit that have not been balanced correctly

yes . it doesnt seem to be a wheel bearing. and i shifted the tyres around. yet the noise is still there..its totally weird, if im driving on a concrete road ' the noise is halved. but on a smooth tarmac rd, the noise is terrible. ty for your answr.
