Default Replaced FP wheel bearing, noise still exactly the same

As the title says, replaced wheel bearing, it corrected my ABS issue but the noise is still the same. I'm just about positive it's the FP because on hard left turns it gets louder. I have the GY Wranglers on them and they aren't the greatest in the world, in fact, taking them off they are kind of u-shaped all the way around it's really weird... the pressure is where it's supposed to be though.

could the issue be with the tires and not the wheel bearing? It certainly sounds mechanical and not just like a loud tire. I cleaned up the mating surface the best I could before reinstallation with a wire brush.

if it's not the tire or the WB could a CV shaft make a noise like a bad bearing? There is no change with 4wd on or off.

I believe the CV sounds like clicking, could be wrong... but check balljoints, and play in your control arm bushings... my lca bushing arm causing my front end to sound like a blown shock...

Rotate tires front to back and see if sound changes

Depending on the tires and wear they can cause noise. Maybe post a pic of the tire and wear pattern.
