Default Loud Humming-noise/buzzing from right front wheel

Hi guys...
AS the topic says, I have a loud noise (increasing with mp/h)
coming from my right front wheel... I tend to think it's the wheel-baering, am I right?
Or could it be something else?
Opinions and advise thanks
Thanks a lot,
Daniel.

There isn't any obvious visual problem? I've seen people with mudflaps that were somehow touching the tire...

No, it't clearly connected with the tire... No mudflaps or the likes... Is there any way to test if it's a wheel-bearing, a cv-joint or so???
Daniel.

I am very sure it's the bearing. CV joints make noise when you turn the wheels sharply left or right; bearings make noise at all times.

What is the procedure for replacing your wheel bearings?

Thanks!
