323 Excessive Road Noise

My 1998 323is is making a lot of road noise. I did have an alignment done and checked over the basics. The back tires are getting low, but it still seems awful loud at 60MPH. (it is not the engine as I can eliminate that when driving by putting the car in neutral)

Any suggestions on what to check, what to look for? Maybe common problems?

Make sure the tires are not chopped on the edges. check all suspension components if they are. shocks and struts can cause this wear in the tires.
