I have a 2013 Hyundai Sonota with 38,000 miles on it. I bought it used and I've noticed that when I accelerate past 30mph I hear the rear wheel rotating, and as I get up to speed 50-60mph the speed of the...

Sounds (pun intended) like a problem with the differential (that globe that connects to the drive-shaft and to the two rear tires. Maybe, one wheel has bad bearings, adding resistance into the differential.

After a your hand on the center of the rim...Is it hot? If it probably have a bearing going out.
Also check your tire balance and tire for tread seperation...Your local Les Shwab will do this for free.

Why does my right front tire hum between 40mph and 60mph?

you could have a bad bearing, usually if you turn the steering wheel to the left the noise should get louder and if you turn to the right the noise should be alittle lighter

1999 Harmonic Tone Between 40 and 60MPH

Interesting problem, it always worries me to see new axles and nuts as few mechanics realize how critical bearing preload torque is, and just gun the axle nuts on until they hit the nearest hole on the castle nut. You would not see or hear a single thing with the wheel off the ground either, the bearing needs to be loaded and at speed. Typically though, a bearing noise will be apparent all the time and grow with speed and swerving should have an effect.
From what you say, it does sound like drive line, a bad u-joint to be specific. I'm not that familiar with the Soob's layout, but it must have a driveshaft running from the transaxle to the rear axle. I think if it were me, I would be pulling that shaft out and carefully inspecting it for binding or looseness at any of the joints. 175,000 mi. is a lot and since the other half shafts have likely been replaced, it wouldn't be unreasonable to expect some wear here as well. In fact I think I would probably look around to see if I could just get another center driveshaft with less miles and just put it in to try it. From what you say, this is very likely the cause.
The harmonic balancer is not an issue as you say the noise is independent of engine speed.

BTW. Very good thorough description! I could solve a lot more problems if people were as descriptive as you.

Loud noise comming from engine

it sounds like you have got a wheel bearing out mate
you need to jack each wheel up one at a time and spin the wheels. the one with the loud humming noise is the one that needs replacing

Humming sound from the rear when I go over 60mph

from your symptoms of noise from rear ? i would say your suspision is correct it is probably one of hub bearings in the early stage of wear/burning out front wheels chocked raise each rear wheel in turn and with park brake off check for undue movement /rock in wheel/s and any noise when you spin ? if oone shows to be suspect ? advise you replace both sides ? this is not too expensive a repair and can be diy if you have tools and confidence? bearings come as a kit for each wheel/hub if you have time you will save $$$$$ in garage cost? hope this helps/inspires you best wishes from uk

Humming noise in front end of truck

I'm having the same problem with my 2006 Chevy 2500 duramax...The humming starts at 25mph and then gets less prominent and then at 50mph it gets more prominent and louder, then at 60mph you can hardly hear it.....I did notice a little bit of leakage where the front axel meets the from diff on the drivers side.
Any suggestions?
