The rumbling you are hearing is more than likely going to be a bad wheel bearing/hub assembly. If not that, it may be your brakes. If you are mechanically inclined, jack up that side of the car and see if the wheel moves up and down, if the bearing is bad, the wheel will rock up and down due to the wheel bearing eating itself up...

About a year ago i had the clutch redone by friend/mechanic and when that was done that entire assembly needed to be removed, could the noise have resulted from something not being tightened enough?? this is a fairly recent thing probably in the last 4-6 months
