Noisy rear wheel


Your wheels are probably rubbing against your brake caliper, or the dust shield.

Rubbing or grinding noise coming from Driver side rear tire/wheel


I had the same problem that based on interner research is common for Fords trcuks/suvs. The common problem fro rear humming "rubbing"sound might be the rear wheel bearings/seal. These will need to be replaced as it will progressivly get worse and the noise louder and eventually the bearings can sieze. I would hesitate to take to a ford dealer if I were you as it can run $500-900. Take to mechanic that knows how to replace wheel bearings and seals. My mechanic replaced them for about $150. and the bearing and seals are around $40. A good way to test this is to raise the wheel were you can freely spin by hand...if does not spin or there is a lot of friction then it might be the wheel bearings.
Good Luck

RUBBING NOISE


check to see if the rear tires are making contact with the rear struts or springs, sometimes if you tow a heavy load with these cars it bends the spring perchs down and they rub on the inside tread of the tire, also be sure you have the right tire size on the car please rate -jeff

jack up the rear wheel and spin the rear wheel to find out what the rub is. look to see if there is any rubbing marks on or in the fender well.( do not have on the emergency brake) Also if the noise could be metalic then it could be the brake drum rubbing on the backing plate.
