Would be hard to imagine, under normal circumstances, that rear drum shoes would be worn out at 50K miles. Rears don't do very much actual braking. Certainly is possible however, that some other defect caused them to wear out prematurely (ie. binding parking brake cable, bound up rear wheel cylinder). However it's also premature to have to replace a rear bearing. I personally would suspect a problem in the brakes, but we're not able to hear any of the sounds. So who knows what they'll find until they start the job.

I agree with both of you that, indeed, the rear brakes should be checked first before looking at the wheel bearings.
#103 of 283 2005 Camry "bearing noise"
Jan 11, 2007 (12:05 pm)
One of our fleet vehicles (a V6 model w/64,000 miles) developed a noise in the r/front that, after tire rotation, was deemed to be a hub bearing. (By 3 mechanics) After pressing in a new bearing, it still makes the same noise. The axle has no slack at all. And the noise is more like what you would expect from a tire,(they're new Goodyears) or bearing, like rngrngrngrng. Rises and falls with wheel rpm.
#104 of 283 S-Rated Tires Dilemma
Jan 25, 2007 (7:40 am)
My 2002 Toyota Camry XLE came with S-rated tires. They are now worn out and it's time for new ones. S-rated tires are very expensive. Can't I install lower rated tires - such as H-rated??

S is actually the lowest rated typical speed rating for all-season passenger car tires. For tires that you'll be considering, the order (from lowest to highest) is S, T, U, H, and V. See tirerack.com for more info.
BTW, this topic will be moved by the hosts in short order.
#106 of 283 V-rated Tires on Camry XLE
Jan 25, 2007 (12:16 pm)
I recently posted a message wherein I said my 2002 Camry XLE came with S-rated tires. I was in error - the original tires were V-rated. The original tires wore out and I replaced them some time ago with V-rated tires but it was very expensive. I now need new tires again. Can I safely downgrade to an H or S tire? How about the handling and stability? Thanks for your help.

Despite what the owner's manual says, you can drop down to H- or even T-rated tires. After all, the base Camry LE came with T-rated tires, and the suspension is identical to the XLE.
Just make sure you stay with the same size tires. Unless you drive like a bat out of hell, you'll likely notice absolutely no difference in handling.

I am on my second set of Bridgestone Turanza LS-H tires for my 98 Camry XLE V-6. I love them. They are quiet, responsive, and I got 80K from the first set. Tire Rack and Firestone carry them, Discount Tire could order them for me.
