Normal tire wear, when tire tread depth is very low, can lead to the same noise. Combined with excessive speed, this can cause tire squealing and possibly a loss of traction. To prevent excessive noise, ensure that tires are properly inflated, slow down during turns, and have your suspension checked for damage and proper alignment The noise is loudest (95db)at around 57MPH and some other speeds like 47, 67 also. Other speeds in between these, it gets down to 80db. There's NO vibration at any speeds (so tires are balanced?) There's NO pull to either side when drivin The brake caliper hanging up can cause the noise you are hearing. If the caliper is causing the brake pads to drag, this will occur. It can also be caused by a bearing failing, which will cause the noise and the caliper to hang up. Most commonly though, it is caused by a tire that is wearing unevenly As with the load rating, tires capable of sustaining higher speeds are stiffer and therefore create more noise. In our example, a tire with a W speed rating can sustain speeds of 168mph / 270kmph. Very few of us are ever going to drive that fast so having a tire with a speed rating that high is unnecessarily noisy

Unfortunately, there are a number of other reasons why your tires could be making more noise. Tire noise is usually at its loudest at higher speeds (like cruising speeds on the freeway or while accelerating). If you think you're detecting noise the cause has likely been there for quite some time. No need to worry Excessive tire noise can be caused by a number of different factors: the sound of your car tire tread contacting the road surface air being compressed inside the grooves of the tread- the larger the tread, the more air volume, the noisier the tire the malfunction of the front wheel bearing

(Barely noticeable against road noise.) Occurs while vehicle speed is >= approx. 45 MPH. Unaffected by engine speed, gear selection, or braking. Pitch has a slight direct relation to vehicle speed. Given that the sound seems to be somewhat related to vehicle speed, but independent of engine speed, one of my first suspects was the wheels or tires I got a set of new Michelin PRIMACY MXM4 tires and notice a humming noise at certain speeds.

When I swerve to the right, nothing happens. At speeds from 30-45mph it is louder when I am coasting. At speeds above 60mph, it happens when I am coasting down hills and also.
