Tire making noise

When I take off from a full stop my back right tire area makes a thump thump thump noise like its skipping, any ideas what it could be? The tires and wheels are stock (well same tire I've had for a month)

Wheel could be loose. Remove and inspect for foreign objects or damage from curbs etc. Beyond that, it could be a bearing or CV joint going. Get in there and LOOK.

Flat spot. CV joint. Mother-in-law pounding on the inside of the trunk. It could be lots of things.

Your post says, "my car makes a noise, why?" My car is black, why? It does because it does, it is because it is.

The question is okay, but there is nowhere near enough information.

Rear trailing arm bushes need replacing?
