Your ford escape makes a VA VA sound at 30 to 50 miles per hour It very annoying. Tires were already replaced and balanced What else could it be?

Best bet is one of the wheel bearings. Try lightly swerving the vehicle as you travel and see if the sound changes. Pressure as you swerve will increase on the side(you will feel it) opposite of the turn direction. If the noise goes up on the pressure side when you do this, its probably the bearing. Alsao when you swerve the other way, the noise will reduce
