    You mean like a tire shop? The two I've been to say the same thing, tires or bearings. I think I'll just bring it to honda and have their service department inspect it.

    Changed rear passenger wheel bearing hub assembly
    Rotated tires (At this point i thought it'd fix it but still didn't)
    changed the other 3 wheel bearings (all skf bearings) still no...
    got new tires bf Goodrich gforce comp 2 a/s and still no!

    This is very frustrating.. I've spent over 1100 dollars trying to track down this issue. Of course what ive done has its benefits but it still does the same low pitched humming noise.

    I'm going to add that instead of when i go above 35+ mph it is whenever the car is rolling. It's a low howl sound.. almost like an owl and its faint but it is noticeable and sometimes you can hear it very well. More so that other drivers can hear it. I was coasting around 15 mph and still heard it. You can hear it better on a bumpy road. I'm out of ideas, I inspected the exhaust and it is solid as a rock and I doubt that has anything to do with it since it doesn't increase in vibration as rpm increases.

    As far as I know, this is what I can think of whats wrong..:
    suspension..?
    brake caliper rubbing rotor?

    Thanks for your input. Instead of trying to figure things out myself I'm about to take it to honda and have them look at it. All the mechanics i've taken it to say the same thing and i'm honestly surprised that its neither the wheel bearing or tires.
    Its never been in a side *quarter panel* collision?

    Any distortion on the rear trailer arm?

    Previous owner was rear ended in the car, but apparently it wasn't bad. They used the same rear bumper, I know cause there is a part of the paint that is a little cloudy but hardly noticeable. When I first got the car, it wasn't there. It appeared one day and is more noticeable at this point.

    Hey OP, I think I'm just starting to hear this on my 2012 civic si with relatively the same miles (55k). Though I've only heard it going reverse (same place rear passenger side). It does sound like a odd low hum noise. I suspected it to be exhaust vibration or something, like something finally moved and the perfect RPM/vibration causes it. If it were a wheel bearing issues, when lifted the wheel will have play (wheel bearing diagnostic search). I've had this problem on a different car and I don't think this one has it yet.

    *Edit*
    OP, can you back up for me and see if you can hear that noise. Hopefully you can hear it over the spool.

    Check your brake pads. I started to have this last weeekend, about 60,000 miles on the odometer. I hadn't replaced the brake pads yet (ever). Anyway I just got done taking the pads off. Kind of a PITA job because of the Michigan corrosion. The driver-side rear outer pad was worn down to bare metal. The other 3 rear pads were extremely low, but no metal showing yet, and the indicators wouldn't have engaged yet.
    Yesterday when I spoke to the dealership to get a quote, the guy mentioned that they try to service brakes around 30k, and I was well-beyond that.

    I forgot to ask: did you ever jack up the car and rotate each wheel by hand before doing anything? That's a potentially good way to isolate a noise coming from a corner.

    I'm bringing it on monday for honda to look at it for me. Now that you mention it, I remember a mechanic saying that my brake pads were rubbing and that this is normal. I don't think the has has ever had brakes serviced, we shall see.

    I did that when I was diagnosing what I thought was the wheel bearing but at the time i couldn't hear anything then. Since then it's gotten worse.
