I apologize if this has already been covered, but after 2 weeks of research I can’t seem to find anything similar. I’m experiencing an intermittent vibration/humming sensation when I come to a rolling stop or apply little pressure to the brakes. The best way I can describe it is as the sound when you drive over rumble strips/ sleeper lines(although not nearly as loud). It only happens at very low speeds right before coming to a stop. After already having issues with the IWE check valve, I can say this sound is completely different. I also feel a slight vibration in the wheel and brake pedal when this happens. The truck has 58k miles with stock tires.The tires probably have 20k miles on them. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

I had the wheels rotated last week. My IPhone didn’t pick up the noise very well, but if you listen to the video through a quality speaker you should hear it.

it is the tires. put a straight edge on the outer tread blocks near the top. these tires tread blocks wear crazy where the alternate on the shoulder. creates a low rumble as very low speeds.

as the truck speeds up, the tires "balloon" slightly and that goes away.
