Need thoughts on rear end noise

Wob, wob, wob.....speed related. Slightly louder with clutch out.

Worst at 25-30. New bearings all around. About 10k on Sumitomos. Just had alignment. Inside edge wear bad.

Very annoying but not felt. Can I pay to have the rear tires swapped rims and see if the noise migrates? Anyone with inner CV failure experience?

I can turn the hub by hand with no tire and super smooth. Running out of ideas!!

Wheel bent or tire out of round?

Bought a new volvo wagon last year, one of tires that came with it was out of round, seemed worse at certain speed. Although we did not experience strange wear...

Best of luck..
