It might be worthwhile that anyone contributing to this discussion states their region, tyre size and tyre manufacturer.
You never know, a pattern may emerge...

19" continental summer,
nokian winter on 19" V90CC rims.

The problem is not tire or rim related i strongly expect. As I tested with different rims and tires and the wheels have been professionally balanced.

Volvo stated the resonating sound is due to the "dynamic" chassis. It is normal in their eyes and present in all XC40's we test-drove.
They will try to fix the vibration in the car, and state it is a separate problem.

Check the cables connected to a box under the passenger seat. One of these cables is too rigid and tends to vibrate at high speed. I fixed it to others and since then finish vibrating
