Car road noise take two. (Updated)

So Instead of retelling the whole story I will link to these posts.

Anyway my point is that I can hear the noise all the time now, no matter the road I am on.
At least now I have some audio clips, hopefully they work for all of you. Just select open with.

This one is with cruise set to 65 on a rough road and shows the extra bit of thud i get on them.

This one is driving at about 47-50 mph on a smooth road, its the best evidence I have. You hear the regular road noise but there is also that constant hum or whatever.

At one point someone mentioned wheel bearings going out, I dont know. Just please take a listen and give me some ideas. Thank you everybody.

Well your links don't work for me on either my phone or laptop, but looking at some of your other post and comments made to you I would start with the tires. How many miles do you have on them?

I know from experience improperly worn tires will cause all kinds of noise. I just had a new set of tires put on one on my cars because the second set had cupped again. That made the car sound like there was a wheel bearing noise, almost grinding sound when turning. Not to mention a thump, thump, thump when driving straight. I took it in to my local shop the first time and they told me it was a bad set of Goodyear Eagles. So had another set installed, 35,000 miles later the same noise. THis time I complained and they dug into it further. Turns out my struts were bad causing the tires to wear improperly.

Car rides like it was brand new now. Check the wear pattern on the tires and make sure you don't find any abnormal wear patterns. If you do, have the struts and alignment checked.

Had the noise with the pirelli's and put brand new tires on and the noise was still there. I don't believe the tires are my issue. Thank you for being the first person of one hundred views to let me know my clips didn't play though. I have the files saved on my computer as wav files. How do i get them on here? I don't really want to sign up for anything.

We all drive pretty much the same car here, and no one thinks this noise is odd. I'm seriously thinking of getting rid of my car. I can crank the radio up and still hear it, it has really impacted my enjoyment. How do I make the dealership take me seriously here?

Noise is ugly man. sounds driveline related to me. u-joint or axle bearing or CV joint on a half shaft perhaps? Or pinion bearing or side bearing in the differential.

Have you already contacted your dealership regarding the issue you are experiencing? If you would like, I can contact them and do some research. If you could please send me more details on the issue, your first and last name, address, phone number, VIN, mileage and your involved dealership, I will be more than happy to set up a case. I look forward to your PM.

Well dealership says it is the tires, says that they are badly cupped. I am going to take it to a tire specialty shop and have them look at it. Also have them check the suspension for issues.
So if I want to get rid of the noise I will need to get new tires. These are less than a year old, and maybe 7000-9000 miles on them. I cannot afford to get new tires already.

that doesn't sound too feasible around here. Should make the dealership throw some on there, from one on their lot.
It just makes me mad that after such a short time these tires are not good anymore, and there is nothing I can do with them cause cupping is not a covered warranty issue.
