Rear Wheel Shakes!?

Alright gents, here's what's going on. The wife picks me up at work in the 01 530i and starts driving towards the gas station. I thought I heard something so I turned down the radio and heard this horrible sound coming from rear driver side wheel. We parked at the station and I got out to check out the noise. Apparently I can grab hold the wheel and shake it. There is just a bit of play in the wheel. I tried to tighten the bolts just to see if they were loose but they weren't. There was a previous noise that was more of a hum coming from the wheel. Any ideas?
