2001 Volvo S60 Question: Humming Noise
Are you sure the tires are OK? Tire noise can be very loud and there are a couple ways to determine if they are the source of the noise. First, check that the tread wear is OK and not scalloped or uneven. Then try driving the vehicle on different road surfaces, this can change the pitch of the noise quite a bit if the tires are bad. Then you can try rotating the tires or replacing them. Hope that helps. - Bret Bodas

New tires an alignment/balance done. Tie Rods will soon need to be replaced. What else would cause a low humming whoop-whoop at low speeds... an a vibrations at 60 to 70 mph?
