2013 Ford Explorer humming noise at 45+MPH

Asked by Aug 03, 2017 at 10:29 AM about the 2013 Ford Explorer XLT 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My vehicle has 62k miles on it.  I am getting a humming sound at 45+ MPH.  I realize it could be the transmission, wheel bearings, rear end, or even tire noise.  I don't think it is the bearings as they would squeak.  I recently replaced the tires with the exact same Nankook tires I had on it when I bought it new.  Can anyone help me...has anyone experienced this with their Explorer?  Thank you in advance!!

Wheel bearing will make the humming noise and would be easy for u to check, just jack it up and spin and try to shake the wheel side to side. Transmission or rear end noises will have to be diagnosed by mechanic
