ticking noise from rear

so now that i solved the cowbell noise there is a new one to solve...when driving at normal local speeds around town...i hear this ticking sound which seems to be originating from back...it a constant speed does not alter when the car goes faster except that engine and road noise drowned it out...also while moving does not change f i put car into neutral( it is still present and does not alter if i rev engine)...when i brought the rep came for a ride and heard it and agreed it would be annoying..it was a nice day and the top was down and as you rode past another parked car it got louder like reverb? after a day of having the car they told me that one of the rear tires (which i know are on its last legs) snapped a belt and is now wavy and causing this ticking noise...i asked how much they get for tires and they said 599 a piece for the rear.. i asked if they replace them and the noise is still there who is responsible for the cost of tires? do i have to tell you their answer...understand i have the car only until january and then it goes back...they told me that it has to have 50% tread on the tires and has to be what it originally came with...so now i left and started my search...i was lucky enough to find on e-bay the exact ones i needed brand new for 295 a piece shipped for free...tires are now changed and the while i was at it i had some curb rash addressed and the rim refinished and low and behold noise is still there....a little side note there was a screw in one of the rear tires of which they did not even notice at bmw....wonder if they do anything at all...with that being said any thoughts on what this noise is...it sounds like a fan in the back of the car or tappatta type sound...just putting it out there so i can some more ammo when i bring it back...
