I took mine In and they could not fix it so I have puttering around with it.
Try turning the front hood adjusters down (yes down) about two full turns.
See if that makes it better. Raising them made it worse and lowering made it better. Not perfect bu better. When they are too high there is a rattle near the hinge which might sound like the wheel area. It is a loose rattle sound over sharp bumps only at slow speed.

I have been eliminating possibilities like suspension, plastic, hood support rod, calipers, dust shield, exhaust etc.

I will keep on going with it to see what develops.
