Weird noise

After getting a tire changed my 2007 focus makes a strange thumping noise when slowing down.

Just went out to check it to begin with 40 psi of air so I let some out sound is not as bad, but I noticed a small bubble on the side wall of the other front tire.

Bubbles on tires can be fairly dangerous

Tire got overinflated and then heated in use popped a bubble in it. Cheaper crap tires even new don't like anything over 40 psi, BTDT. Unless a spacesaver spare which air to 60 psi.

The bubble WILL pop to blow out pretty quick, change it.
