There was a noise in the right rear tire. It sounded like the tire was wobbling but it was not. My mechanic replaced the bearing and rotated the tires.  It's still making the noise.  He is still working on he car but cannot find anything else that is wrong.  Help.

its probably the brakes

could be the brakes, the drive spindle for that hub, or an issue with the differential, those would be my best guesses.
