Engine/drivetrain/tire rumble over 60 MPH

My 2012 JK Rubicon Unlimited has 10,000 miles and has developed a "rumble" whenever it gets over 60 MPH. I can't tell where it's coming from...engine, drivetrain or tires.

Anyone else has heard this? Any thoughts?

Stock tires? If so this is your problem, as soon as I hit 10-12k they started getting noisier and noisier, rotating every 3k helped some but not much.

Yes, they are stock. I have rotated them twice, at 5k and 10k miles.

It is a low-pitch rumble that starts at 60MPH. I lost the balance weights on several wheels last time a went offroading. I wonder if this would contribute, although the steering wheel doesn't vibrate is it would if it were the case when wheels are off balance.

It wouldn't vibrate if the out of balance wheels were on the back, but I doubt that is the problem anyway. Most probably just tire wear, MT's do rumble a little and it tends to get louder as they wear. Check your drive shafts for any play, but most likely is just the tires.
