weird tire thumping noise

alright so couple weeks ago i found a nail in my front driver side tire. wasnít leaking air, so i put it off for a bit. iím going tomorrow to get it patched. anyways, the past couple weeks, i can feel a thumping feeling from the front tire(s) (not sure if itís the right front as well, as i can only feel it on the driver side). it thumps faster as i pick up speed, i can feel it in my pedals, and my steering wheel aswell, i can also hear it. it doesnít shake the wheel though. i donít think a nail in the tire would make this noise, so that is why iím asking if anyone has any idea what it could be. i also jacked it up, shook the tire , and thereís no movement at all. iím kind of confused and not sure what to do, anything helps THANKS!

Last time I had the sensation you describe it turned out the tire had a lump caused by broken steel belts. Have the tire shop spin the tire, should be easy to find!

What kind of lazy POS tire shop doesn't repair a nail in a tire because "it's not leaking"... find another REPUTABLE shop.
