Some of the cars do noise when there's low tire pressure. Balance might be also an option. I had that situation in BMW 650 and did everything checked everything and couldn't find anything. The car had new tires but low profile and must have hit some pot hole causing flat spot on tire and that was it small vibrations caused by flat spot. BMW couldn't find the reason for that had to do on my own changed tires and again had the pleasure from driving

the Axle or CV joint would issue a flop flop and a crunch on acceleration...yes would put it out of balance depending on it's degree of decreptitude, the rubber would go to hell and would start leaking the poisonous grease everywhere...and would start sounding like a helicopter....then you'd know to get a set of rebuilt axles which include CV joints and new boots too~
