Default Wheel bearing issue?

Have an 06 Cruiser with 84,000 miles. Just bought it so I don't know if anything has been replaced, but, it makes a humm and slight vibration "only" when slowing down from highway speeds. Any ideas?

Could be lots of things, certainly a Wheel Bearing is one of them.
A little rust on a rotor, or slight warpage could also do it.

*Usually* a wheel bearing comes into play when turning slightly.

Engine torque arms (aka motor mounts) are very common to fail, tons of posts on this

If it's only 'Slight', I'd let it be and see if it gets worse instead of chasing parts.

Thanks for the info.....It really reminds me of a slightly warped rotor so I'm just going to do what you suggest and let it be for now.
