    Default Anyone know what this sound is?

    My car makes this humming kind of noise when i am driving the faster i go the worse it becomes. I have loaded an audio file onto youtube, if you could take a listen and make a guess as to what it might be, i would be very greatfull.
    Thanks

    Without even listening its either the rear tyres droning or you need a wheel bearing replaced

    Try swapping the tyres front to rear and see if that helps. Failing that either a couple of new tyres £xxx or a new wheel bearing (Fronts £60-70 Rears 70-80) and about an hours labour per bearing

    I would say tyre noise or bearing.

    Bearing on the rear is a complete hub and bolt on.

    1st thing is to rule out engine / gearbox noise - does it continue if your coasting out of gear ? If so its tyres or wheels.

    I'd agree... although all i can here is you fidgeting in that clip

    Mine is also stupidly loud, mainly on good smooth roads and even when coasting...
