You could be. But tires may only "sing" (politically correct terminology for today's sensitive society when going in a specific direction. Also, misalignment can cause tire noise.

Try putting the wheel in the air and see if you get noise when it spins. (you don't have to have it spinning at freeway speeds to check!) Any similar noise would indicate a different problem than tires.
