Look on the inside of the tires on the back if this is where the noise is coming from. If there is something rubbing on the tire, you will see some marks on the inside of the tire. Could be a wheel bearing. The kind of sound, is it a hissing sound? That would be a plugged catalytic converter, and you would have problems getting over 40 mph.
