It resonates throughout the cabin, it's a constant hum, but it does have the cyclical "pulse" that is relative to wheel revolutions/speed. Gets really loud at 50-60 mph, I did not push it past that.
The first thing I thought was "it's a tire", and checked for a flat. Remember, the noise was not there a week ago. When I drove it yesterday (and immediately heard it), I took it to people who do tires all day (the only people open), Sears. They did drive/check the car and told me it's not the tires (or wheel bearing
), it's the differential.
And about the alignment: I agree. The tire was not looking this bad before the rotation, but it must have cupped the edge and now it has worn off. I was hoping to get alignment + tires in a few months when my wife was out of school before next winter.
