2005 Oddy with about 70K miles. Recently put on new tires (AVID TRZs) and the sound is still there although different. I chalk this up to it previously being a combination of tire noise and ??? Noise comes from the rear end, sounds like the right rear. It is a constant humming with a slight vibration. Sound get louder with speed, is unaffected by braking (except decreases as the van slows) and really noticeable from 25 MPH and up. Seems to decrease when turning left and gets louder when turning right. (i.e. louder with more pressure on the right side) Climbed around the back while the wife was driving using a ratchet extension and screwdriver as a stethoscope, pretty sure it is the right side. I think it might be the bearings and have tried the search function. Any help diagnosing is appreciated.

Well, I went ahead and changed the rear right hub (and brake pads all around while I was at it.) Now the only problem is the wind noise from the front is noticeable again ;) The drive line is as smooth as can be for a Oddy with 70K miles. Ordered the parts from Majestic Honda (online) and the whole deal from collecting the tools to test drive took about 2-hours.

I suspected a right side wheel bearing too. Glad you got it fixed. :)

From the thread description of "Help diagnose rear end noise" I thought there might be a completely different line of replies.
:p
