Started having this continuous noise - sounds like a metal rubbing against metal coming from the rear wheels - only when driving at speeds > 30 mph or so. Could it be the brake pads sticking (time to bleed the system maybe), or wheel bearing gone bad, or something else? I checked wheel alignment just in case - is okay, tires are not rubbing the road. Thanks.

I would bet on the wheel bearings, particularly if the noise is worse during turns.
