18” wheels

So I bought some 18” escape wheels. With nearly new vogue tires less than 3k miles. They clear and and look great! However I am getting some excessive road noise. I can’t tell if it’s from the new wheels or a potential wheel bearing problem. About a month ago I was concerned about a little noise I had but I forgot about it until now. Did anyone else notice a change of sound with bigger wheels or did my wheel bearing finally bite the dust?

I believe so. They were the stock escape size. They worked fine till I hit big bumps. But I wound up getting the stock ST size and they work and feel a lot better
