Jack it up and try to shake the tire/wheel placing your hands on top and bottom of the tire pushing and pulling to make it move if there is any looseness. Placing your hands front and rear of the tire, you may hear/see movement due to worn steering components.
If you see no movement, before you assume the bearing is fine place a LONG screw driver of something of the sort (think stethoscope) against the center of the hub and the other end firmly to your ear. Roll the wheel and listen closely through the screw driver for the bearing rollers. You will hear the rollers nice and smooth if the bearing is good and you will hear the grinding of the bearing rollers if the bearing is bad.
