Exclamation Strange Noise

I have started to notice a strange sound from my car which occurs intermittently usually when accelerating but also when I release the throttle, it sounds like a wierd kind of rattle/vibration and seems to come from either the drivers side front, or the drivers side on the rear. I have a feeling it has something to do with the muffler. I do not notice any issues when this noise occurs, no power loss, just the wierd noise.

Out of balance wheel, or brake pads have reached the end of life and are hitting the wear indicator. Does the noise stop when you touch the brakes? Maybe even wheel bearings, but thats more of a cyclic - rhythmic wah-wah kinda sound.

Its not going to be the brakes as they were replaced this year, the wheel balancing on the other hand could be an issue as we had 2 tires replaced but they are on the rear. I hope its not wheel bearings. I think I will get the balancing checked tonight.
