Default thumping sound

My wifes 2001 pt cruiser has a thumping sound near the left front wheel. The only time i hear it is when the car is decelerating and your foot is off the gas. The thumping is the same speed as the wheel so its obvious that it is something with the wheel. Any ideas.

Sounds like you need to get the wheel off and have it inspected. One of the inner plys/cords could have separated or something stuck to the tread.

Run through any deep snow lately? Might have some packed inside the wheel and touching as the wheel turns... that or someone is in your trunk and trying to get out....
