Default wierd noises coming from the back wheels

It sounds sorta like when your on the freeway and your tires make a loud howl on differrent types of pavement only its a little different and it is constant when the car is rolling whether in gear or not. My car is lowered so I supected rubbing but none anywhere, I have Kumho tires but the noise came long after I had these tires, I am rolling on the Forrestor wheels which don't rub the brakes or anything. So I have no idea maybe rear differential or axles making noise, any ideas would be greatly appreciated. 2000 Impreza L 4-door is my car
Thank You
Brian

I have the same problem....sounds like a howling noise on the highway. My first thought was a bad wheel bearing, or two? I took it to the Subaru Dealer and the tech who drove my car (with me riding with him) said he coudlnt hear it but it is problably abearing. he said if it is a bearing it will get worse and eventually fail, but since we didnt get up to very high speeds he said I would have to leave my car for a day so that he coul take it out on the highway. He said mine will be the first 02 impreza with a wheel bearing problem if thats what it is. He said one ofhter 02 came in for a similar sound and it turned out to be a "dislocated rear axle"



Let me know if you figure this out.
