Agree. Same on my car. Checking the wheel bearings with the wheel/tire on the car there was no play whatsoever but I planned to replace them since I was doing the CV joints. After I had the bearings out, I could feel a slight ginding and some play which would have only got worse with time/miles. Definitely better to replace them as long you're in there.
