    Default Wheel bearing?

    I had a slight accident last year where a car turning into lane 1 from a side street and swinging out a bit too much made me swerve into the central reservation, buckling my old front OS wheel.
    Even today there is a droaning noise and vibrations after 50mph or so. Could it be the bearing? As tie rod ends, stearing mechanisms appear fine.
