Rattling sound coming from front passenger side wheel Sign In

2012 Honda Fit Sport 4 Cyl 1.5L

Hi there. I recently noticed a metalic rattling sound coming from the front passenger side wheel on my Fit. The rattling sounds like a coin stuck in a clothes dryer. I suspect it is a rock in the rim somewhere? I only experience the sound at slow speeds, up to about 30km/h and then seems to completely go away as I pick up soeed. The sound occasionally clanks, sounding like a pebble is falling from the top of the rim to the bottom.
The sound is not rhythmic and consistent, so I dont think it has anything to do with the brake pads. I am traveling long distance right now but will try to take the wheel off when I get home to take a closer look. Any ideas what this might be and how to fix it? Thank you

When you take the wheel off look for any shiny spots either on the caliper or inside the wheel for any points that could be contacting.
