Lots of Cabin Noise + Pulsating during turns = 3 new wheel bearings

Brought my car into service today due to lots of cabin noise and pulsating/thumping sound while turning/braking/accelerating. Few hours later I find out I'm getting 3 wheel bearings replaced. Is this a common issue? I have 78k miles on my e92 335xi.

I'm still under warranty. $50 deductible.

1 wheel bearing, yes that is reasonable at your mileage.

3 at once is not common at all.

They ended up replacing 3 bearings and the right rear hub. Car feels silent now. In cant believe I was driving all that time with significant cabin noise and thought it was normal.

Same happened to me, not with three but only one wheel bearing. After I replaced it, it felt a bit odd not having the noise. haha Its great though, it now sounds/feels as it should be.

I do have a lot of cabin noise when I accelerate / decelerate, mostly coming from front passenger side. I went to the garage because I though I had to change the wheel bearing(s). They told me the noise was coming from the tires, because they are not asymmetric tires. FYI, I have a 2008 E90 335xi and I'm running aftermarket wheels with staggered all season tires. I've not changed the tires yet...
