help with wheels

Last night I noticed a kind of thump sound from my right side. I checked the wheels and they look fine. Any ideas what it could be?

Does it happen all the time? How loud is it and does it increase with speed?

Re: help with wheels

An unusual wear pattern should show up eventually, but I would pay the couple of bucks and just get it Road Force balanced. The shop will have your answer. I can't imagine any other thing you can do to identify and correct the thumping. Good Luck-
