    Hey there,
    I was just wondering if you ever solved the problem from the post below? I seem to be having a very similar problem and have ruled out everything except wheel bearing it seems.


    Noise at specific speeds, sounds like tire noise but isn't?A year or so ago, I noticed a faint noise while driving at certain speeds. It sounded like it was coming from one of the rear tires, but was hard to tell, and the noise could only be heard with the windows closed. It'* not a squeel or whistle or hum; it'* a faint low-pitched "m-m-m-m" that increases and decreases with speed, but can only be heard at a specific speed range from maybe 25-45 MPH or so. Because 2 of the 4 tires were close to needing replacement at that time, I took it to the tire shop, expecting to buy 2 new tires. They said the 2 older tires were making the noise. So I had the 2 older tires replaced. The noise was still present.
