Default V50 Rear Wheel Bearings

So my V50 has developed quite a loud 'humming' noise which I'm presuming is caused by failing wheel bearings. I'm comfortable that i can change them with the help of a mechanic friend and a ramp. My question is does anyone have any recommendations for a preferred manufacturer of replacement bearings and are there such things as 'performance' bearings that are better than the standard ones you get from Eurocarparts & the like? Thanks

Like Simmy says, SKF or FAG bearings.

Your Autodoc link didn't work for me so here's another one

FAG Bearing - https://www.autodoc.co.uk/fag/7009408

SKF Bearing - https://www.autodoc.co.uk/skf/1362999

Granted those parts are for the D2 V50 I have so you may need to change the car details to make sure they bring up the correct parts.
