When driving above 40 MPH, the inside of my car gets really loud. It kind of sounds like a humming noise. The sounds softens as soon as I brake. I thought it was due to old tires, however I just got nice new ones and the noise remains. Has this happened to anyone else? What could the causes be?
Check to see if the noise goes away when you are making long sweeping curves.
Let's say you're making a right hand sweeping turn. The inside front wheel
(right) should not make any noise if the bearing is bad because there is less pressure on that wheel. The same goes for the left if making a sweeping left turn.
This should tell you if a wheel bearing is bad as well as which one.

I purchased my ryde @ 15K miles.. @ roughly 20-25K miles, I had my front RH wheel bearing replaced.. @ 30-45K miles, the front LH went bad but Nissan insisted that they replace both front LH and RH again.. Now, @ 50K miles.. My front RH neeeds to be replaced again.. I think Nissan has a problem with their wheel bearings..
