Default Wheel Vibration Noise (hum)

I have an '87 Integra 5 door automatic, and for the past few months
I've had a strange vibration/hum noise in my rear passenger side
wheel. It only happens when I'm going slow, as in under 5 mph and it
sounds like something is rubbing and making a hum. I recently
replaced the rotor and pads, so it's not that. It seems to happen on
a certain spot of the wheel, since it's not constant, it will make the
hum, stop, and then make the hum again if I keep going slowly, and it
seems to either be caused by or related to applying the brakes. I'm
wondering if it's the wheel bearings (that as far as I know have never
been replaced, since I haven't replaced them in the 6 years I've had
the car), or if it's more likely to be something else. Thanks in
advance.

Did you use anti-squeal compound or new shims with the new brakes?

I had a similar problem with my '87 3 door auto. That's what it turned out
to be, I described mine as a "metallic groan".

Did you have the rotors turned when you replaced the pads?

Both the rotors and pads are new, and I used the anti-squeal compound.
I didn't have shims because they weren't on there to begin with and
the new ones didn't come with any, and since this problem doesn't
occur on the rear driver's side wheel, I don't think it's a lack of
shims since there are none there. I also have noticed that at higher
speeds, there's a sound every time the wheel goes around. It's not a
hum like at the really slow speeds, but sort of a whoosh at every
rotation. I appreciate any more help.
