The back left tire area makes a loud buzzing noise, and it causes slight vibration through the car. It gets louder as the car increases speed. I can still drive the car, it doesn't cause the steering wheel to shake at all at any speed, it is just loud in the cabin. When I turn hard left the weight of the car shifts to the right and the vibration and noise stop. When I turn right and the weight of the car shifts to the left and more weight is on that left back tire it seems to get a bit louder. I just had the tires rotated and I tried to wash out any rocks or other objects that might be caught and causing the problem. I can't seem to figure it out. I drove it on a 12 hour road trip( I probably shouldn't have) but it seems fine to drive. It doesn't seem to be the brake caliper either. Any advice you can give me please let me know! Thanks!
