Could u possibly have a broken belt in one of your tires or unbalenced wheel? Or is it more of a bearing noise?

Humming noise could be from anywhere. Bearings, intake, alternator, tires... Try switching wheels(tires) if you have extra or a buddy's set.

Rotate tires, if the sound follows a specific tire, then replace the tires (all 4 of them), or get it warrantied if they're brand new tires.

Otherwise, you need to describe it better.

Sounds like it could be a wheel bearing issue to me, but like others have said, can't really speculate too much without more details / info...

Hmmm I have the same thing, but mine is a boost leak so it could also be that. Do you need to tighten something? put on any mods lately ?

I was not certain about where to place my floor jack at first and ended up bending a rear diff support bracket to the body which made a humming noise at around that speed....if you bent something under your car it could result in strange noises. I got it tweeked back and the noise went away.

id check the tires out. if its 50mph+.. thats what it most likely is. could be the exhaust too. make sure everythings tight, no broken hangers, etc.. and make sure the cat is good. if all these are fine, check wheel bearings, etc.. all you need is a jack to check that. (MAKE SURE YOU JACK IT UP PROPERLY)

You could be a bit more descriptive instead of being cryptive like you have been in all your threads so far.

Are you getting any vibrations through the steering wheel, or is it just the humming? That could narrow things down a bit

You aren't worth helping then, because you won't help yourself.

You won't describe it, and get upset when asked if there are other issues that could identify a problem with a tire. I suggest taking it to a tire place and asking them about it. If they laugh at you and tell you it is your turbo, then how will you feel? Educate yourself, or nobody will be willing to help you. Ever. Unless it costs you a lot of money.

be nice son, he knows whats best for you. if you are that incompetent then record a video of what you are describing, post it on youtube and post it on here or a link to it on here.

if not, then go see a mechanic and kindly bend over

When you ask people "help me fix my problem", then refuse to answer the questions that are required to be answered to fix the problem, then you are wasting time. If we cannot identify through you what is going on, then we cannot help you.

I am giving you a dose of reality here. If you don't like it, I probably won't know because you're going on my ignore list.
