It is true that driving with different size tires can damage the transfer case, depending on how long it was driven like that. But--- even if the tires are the same size it can cause this. if the tires are worn and two tires are new the circumference of the tires must not be more than 1/2 inch difference from each other, take a tape measure and put it around the tire in the center and measure the difference of each tire

SOURCE: rear tire wear
This truck has a live rear axle, meaning there is nothing to adjust back there. Have you hit somthing? The wear being on the outside of the tire would indicate that the tire is pointing in to the center of the vehicle. Sight down each of the rear tires to the front tires and see if it appears tif the rear axle is skewed to one side. Possibley bad locating arm busings or somthing bent.

yes it could cause the noise also having 80% tread is not good on the transfer case as it will constantly be putting stress on it. replace your fronts with matching tires and the noise should go away

oil drain bolt should be facing pass front tire. it's a 13mm wrench to remove it unless aftermarket bolt. it is angled like if it runs out it would land on inner portion of rim,right front tire.

Hello, I see you may a lot of changes and replaced a lot of parts. We leased an Explorer the same Year as yours. In our case there was a slight noise as well as vibration. The problem was the Front Hub bearings, They were bad at 18000 miles.
There are a few things I want to suggest. The spinning of the wheels on the lift will not load the bearings. A Dyno table can get everything turning with a load on it. As your vehicle is a 4x4, most Dyno's were 2 wheelers. You would have to call to find one for a 4x4.
Next, if the new Hubs do not help, have a look at the rotors. They are also balanced. You can spin balance the Wheel and rotor as a unit with a floor motor. It's not the best way to Balance because tire rotation or even shifting the Wheel on the lugs will UNbalance it. But this method CAN pinpoint a problem if a Balanced tire does not spin true when bolted to the vehicle. You will know the Rotor is off-balance and which axle is causing the problem.
Would be interested to see a Post of what you found.
