Question about Cars & Trucks
Tires are in good condition but car makes loud humming noise coming from the rear loudest while hwy driving
Rub your hand over the tread and try and feel for cupping or uneven tread patterns. This will create alot of road noise. If not, have your wheel bearings checked.

This rear end needs to be replace or re-built
This rear end needs to be replaced or re-built. The gears and or bearings are worn/shot. May be able to get a complete rear end from a Junk yard for much less, one in good condition. Good Luck

It's the wheel bearing. Guaranteed. Just replaced mine. Go to Audiworld tech articles for step by step instructions on how to test the wheel bearings. They must have been put in wrong last time or they just went out again.

It's possible that the you have "cupped" tread on a tire or two. After rotation you may hear it. Look at the outer edges of all of the tires for an uneven tread wear. Sometimes it takes a little driving to **** this down. If no luck here, I would stop back at the garage to have them verify there isn't a safety issue.

you either have a pulled belt in the tire or theres a separation in the tread belt and you need to have this checked soon as this tire could blow out at highway speed,if the noise is as bad as you say it is,jack up the van block the wheels and hand spin the tire and check and watch if it wobbles,has any flat spots,bulges wiggly tread in the tread face,just anything out of the ordinary
