Just got back from a long weekend trip and noticed that in the corners I seem to have a humming noise coming from I believe the tires. It is the first time that I have ever really noticed it. Tire pressure is good... Am I just being paranoid ? Sure I am not the first to hear it but I could not find much info about it.

Like clutch says probably a little tire cupping. Inspect your tires for a little uneven wear. Shouldn't hurt anything but it might be about time for new treads.

The short answer is that it's normal.
