Thumping noise from wheel. (Rotors??)

So I have been hearing a thumping noise that comes out from my front passenger-side side wheel. I have aftermarket wheels (pretty beat up since my bro drove it and you know how that goes). The tires seem to be wearing pretty normally. It could be the alignment but the car drives straight and never pulls. I will be getting an alignment tomorrow but I feel that won't completely solve the problem. I feel like it could be the rotors. They are worn and may car shakes when I'm in higher speeds and hit the brakes. Is it normal to hear a thumping noise off the tires with bad rotors?? Please let me know if you have any insights for me.

Never mind, found the issue. Ended up being a bad wheel bearing.
