    Chuff chuff chuff chuff

    I'm getting a noise proportional to wheel speed, most obvious when going slow next to a wall - I can hear it echoing. Its present at all speeds less obvious when other road noise starts to mask it. I've changed the pads, don't know how to diagnose properly if the discs are OK. There's no shake on the steering wheel under braking. Bearings possibly?

    I get the same noise, but I am fairly certain that is it my brakes binding a bit. It could be that some dirt has got stuck somewhere around the calliper & is catching the disc

    Wheel bearings would make a droning noise, and may be more noticeable going around either a left or righthand corner.
