Whining or Harmonic Noise at Freeway Speeds

Relatively new owner here . . . 2016 Sorento SXL, 2.0T.

Love the car . . . but I am convinced that I have some type of whining or humming sound at freeway speeds, mostly likely at 70mph and 73mph+.

I've had Jeeps in the past so I can tell when there is a diff howl happening, but it is not that. Instead I keep thinking this is some type of harmonic sound caused by the tires. Or perhaps just tire noise from the brand of Michelins. I have noticed that my tire pressure seems to rise to about 40psi after seem freeway travel, which is higher than normal. I wouldnt think tire pressure would create this whining/osciliating sound, but who knows, it could.

Otherwise, the car is super quiet - which is something I like. Perhaps it is too quiet and what I am hearing is something that I wouldn't normally here (but is there) in other cars.

Any ideas before I bring it up to a dealer? Anyone else feel like they get an AWD hum at higher speeds from the front end? Thanks!

I thought you guys were crazy until today. Was cruising along the highway at 88 mph and suddenly I was transported to 1985. Pretty sure something is wrong with my flux capacitor.
