They are the engine, tires, suspension, or differentials. Each of these will have different sounds. Without more information, this answer will be broad. The most common faults that cause noise are out-of-balance wheels and tires, low differential fluid, idler pulley, alternator, drive belt, wheel bearings, or the brake rotors.
