Thumping noise Escape front end--Help!

Just bought a 2006 Escape AWD with the six.
43K miles. New OEM Tires.

After a couple of weeks with no problems a constant thumping sound developed and has gradually gotten worse. Appears to lessen even disappear at high speeds (over 55). Also appears to be coming from front driver side wheel area.

Thump, thump, thump etc. Dull sound like going over a series of speed bumps.

Some vibration (not really much) in steering wheel and braking and steering are working fine.

Any clues?
thanks!

Jack it up and check for any wear at wheel ,bearing movement .Spin wheel and check tyres for any twists / buckles .Possibly shed a balance weight , could try swapping wheels with back ones and see if it helps .

Have a close check of your tyres. One could have a bulge or be out of round in shape or some other problem like delamination. Could be dangerous.
