Rear wheel bearings

For me it is a constant rumbling sound that gets slightly worse in corners
where the bearing is on the outside.

Also the ABS trips off when "really giving it some" in deep snow.
When the arse end steps out the ABS trips off which I assume is the castle
ring to sensor gap going out of spec

What are the most common sounds/indications of an impending rear wheel  
bearing failure?  I have just over 105K on my '91 20 valve 200 so  
hopefully there will be plenty of trouble-free miles, at least as far  
as the bearing issue.  I have had so many other problems over the  
years, even with a relatively low mileage car.  Latest issue was  
transmission braces.  However, my Audi is a keeper for me, since I  
bought it new.  Appreciate the help.
