Default Thump thump thump from front right wheel

Sounds like a flat but tire is good. Any ideas? Not much of a description but since I'm at work, can't investgate yet...

tire issue, go hunting for stuff stuck in it, flat, bubble, or the like.

PureDrifter, you are one smart cookie. Me on the other hand, not so much. It's a BOLT with a WASHER in the tire! Case closed.

Wonder how you just noticed the bolt? Something that large would likely make a loud
racket since the tire was first installed?

more likely something he picked up on the road, not something that was int he tire the whole time lol.....

not INSIDE the tire, but embedded in its surface.

Yes, stuck in the tire not inside the tire. Strange though...no sound whatsoever when I drove home last night but as soon as I pulled off the curb this morning, there the sound was. Thing is, I hit a huge pothole last night on the drive home about two min from my house. I was afraid something was damaged suspension wise.

ive had multiple nails in the tires, i think most of mine were self inflicted from my garage.
