Finally I looked at the tires closely and you could see pretty significant feathering. (Test it by running your hands in the opposite direction of the tire rotation and see if there are "cliffs".)

I notified tire rack and they gave me a full refund towards a set of PSS and I have not had a sound since. I know the dsws were said to be very quiet but I guess I just had a bad set. The car also felt a little squirmish at certain speeds while on its final legs.
I will have to check that out. I called Tire Rack today and they said that I will have to bring it to a Rep. so they can look at them. I will do that and see what happens. I have to go on a trip tomorrow on them so I hope it works out. I don't get the feeling that they are squirmish yet. Thanks for the advise that helped a lot. Did your humming go away after you slowed down?
