Exclamation 2012 Ford Fiesta 1.6 Sport - feels like a flat tire but its not

Hi all, first time here

Last night I drove over a speed bump at normal residential speed and it sounded like something under the car hit the ground hard.

After that - now when I drive at 40kms/h it feels like I have a flat tire and I hear a thumping sound. BUT I checked all the tires and even under the car and I can't see anything that seems out of place.

Any ideas? I can only take my car in to a Ford dealer on Thursday as they are fully booked until then, but I would love to know what this issue is. Car is now standing in my garage - not going to drive it while its in this condition.

Welcome to the forum.

When you let go of the steering does the car veer to one side?

Did you verify if you bent one of the wheels?
