Drone at highway speeds

Hello all,
Running a '15 SRT and have an annoying drone sound coming from somewhere in front of the vehicle. It occurs right around the 40mph mark and gets slightly louder when on the freeway. I thought it was my tires which were do for a replacement anyway so I just had Yokohama Paradas put on...drone still present. I mentioned something about bad wheel bearings to the shop I took it to but they said the bearings were fine. It's not the MDS kicking in, but have no idea what could be causing it. Wondering if anyone else has had a similar issue and if so what was the fix/solution for it. Looking to gather some info before heading to the dealership to check out. Currently have 22k miles on the odometer.

Re: Drone at highway speeds

Do you have an aftermarket exhaust?

Stock exhaust. The only thing I've done to it at the moment is a BT catch can

I've excluded the MDS because it's still present under acceleration.

I don't believe so. If I remember correctly, my build date is October 2014

Re: Drone at highway speeds

Turns out it was in fact my left front wheel hub/bearing that was going out. Should be ready to go by tomorrow.
