How can you tell which is needing to be replaced lug nuts or wheel bearings
Automotive Expert
you would need to check play in the bearing and rotate and scope it for noise, usually lug nuts if needing replacement will show wear on the threads

My tire sounds like it's screaming
Automotive Expert
that sounds like you have some more damage that has not been fixed yet, you would need to take this to a garage and have them assess the entire front end for damage.
