a belt could have shifted in one of the tires,

is the sound coming from all your tires?

i had a sound very similar and it turned out to be a front wheel bearing that was on its way out.

So they are used then? They could be worn slightly uneven, but you are more then likely not used to the noise. All tires make different sounds. My tires are brand new on my Si and they sound totally different then the old ones.
