Need more info.

Did you change the suspension in any way? New shocks often need to be re-tightened after they are put on and driven some miles.

A bad LCA bushing can make this noise.

Are you lowered at all?

Does the clunk seem speed up and slow down with speed? Or reciprocal is how they'd term it. Because if so it has to be something that rolls i.e wheel, tire, bearing, axle, etc.

How are your end links? If they are real bad it can cause major "clunking" noise especially low speeds. I replaced mine recently, was worried about ball joints, etc. but this completely solved my issue and silenced that noise. Good luck with it all.

+1 Seen this happen before, warped rotors when over torqued, clunking when it's not to spec.

Could be the lower control arm bolt has loosened, bushing in the LCA (lower control arm), other options of course...nothing to freak out over whatsoever...but you have to get it looked at soon...nothing with loose suspension parts ever gets better or fixes itself.

Just get a free inspection and ask around for a good mechanic...should always have a good mechanic in your contacts as used cars will always develop an issue beyond your capabilities at some point or another.

So you took it to the shop, spent $800 got the car back, the noise still there. Then you are asking......
what could it be?
Did your parents dropped you on your head when you were a baby?

Wheel falling off might be of some concern since he left the tire shop with the noise and doesn't know what "lug end" of the problem means. Should have taken it right back to the tire place immediately instead of asking a forum and waiting for an answer... and crying about it.
