Odd this normal and I just never noticed?

So...the last couple days...I've been hearing, and kinda even feeling, a noise/vibration, that I can only describe as being similar to hitting those speed ruts they put in roads when they want you to slow down...only much softer.
Up until this morning, I'd been thinking I just hit a rough patch of it wasn't a constant noise/vibration...and it sounded rubbery, like it was coming from my front left tire.
When I heard/felt it on smooth road this morning, I started trying to isolate it.

What I found was...if I'm in "D5" and I let my foot off the gas...coast...I hear it. If my foot is on the gas...nothing.
I kicked it over to "S5"...revved up the rpm a bit...let my foot off the noise/vibration.
Back into "D5"...repeat...this time no noise. Unfortunately, I was really close to my destination and only had time for 2 tests.

Now what I'm not sure is if I've always had the radio up...and just never noticed...or if for some reason...the last couple days I've gotten over sensitive to the normal sounds of the car.
Was curious if anybody might know what it is?

Thanks in advance.

I experienced the same exact issue on decel and the dealer said it was my tires. My tires in the rear could use replacing but I'm not convinced it's the cause of the vibration. I haven't replaced my tires yet b/c I'm waiting for the pilot super sports to be available mid April.
