I once was told by a car mechanic that it is not right to "kick the tire" but to put your foot on the upper half and push-release-push-release.
This way you can check if the wheel bearings are ok or worn out.
Maybe kicking the tire has the same effect, but I started to use the technique the mechanic told me.
