Thanks for writing in about your Hyundai Santa Fe. From what you’ve described, it sounds like it may be from the rear wheel bearings. When the rear brakes are applied, the brakes will quiet the noise down. Have a mechanic, like one from YourMechanic, road test the car to verify the noise and ensure it’s coming from the wheel bearings. You’ll be able to make an accurate repair from there.
