    2017 here, but I feel like the issue is somewhat car independent. It started making a loudish wubbub wub wub wub sound from the rear of the car at about 20 mph, and then it gets really loud and faster at around 60. The tires look fine, so I'm not sure what's causing it. Balance? Axel? It seems to be pretty independent of whether the engine is running or I'm accelerating or decelerating. Which is what makes me think it has to do with the wheels.

    You really should get a good inspection of the tires. The sound you are describing sounds like you may have an object lodged in your tires
