did you change it yourself? If not maybe the person who did it didn’t get the old oil filter gasket off and it leaked out?

Would there be any way we could have you, ... sort of ... imitate ... that grunting sound you mentioned.
We'd like to hear all rattles, squeaks and odd noises people make for us; just like their car's make for them.

My thought is it’s unrelated to the oc. Maybe a wheel speed sensor is triggering your stabilitrac?
I did recently get new tires put on ?

You first,:LOL:... I doubt I can make the sound myself on command but it kinda sound like..humm. you ever had to move a huge piece of furniture that you could not lift so it resulted of you kinda scooting it across a hard floor .. it better yet have you ever lived in a downstairs apartment and your loud ass annoying neighbors upstairs decide they wanna start building shit at 2am

Make sure they didn't put-in dead light bulbs for all your good ones while they were changing oil and mounting new tires.
Make sure you'd be back for some troubleshooting time where they'd put-back in your good bulbs; charging you for each one.

If it happens when you turn the wheel especially it could your wheel bearing on either side. If it gets louder on a particular side that you turn to that's probably it and probably that side. Fairly inexpensive fix. Under $300 repair at Belle Tire.

Check for inner fender panel for rubbing the tire. When they change the oil filter they will pull the plastic inner fender to gain access to oil filter sometimes and forget to reposition it back. HTH

Check power steering pump/fluid.
