Unhappy Odd low speed noise on 2004 Honda Civic SE

My wife's Civic has started making an odd knocking noise. It shows up best when travelling slowly almost walking pace, the rate is dependent on the road speed, slight brake application makes it louder. It feels like it's one knock for each wheel rotation, but it quite a dull rubbery knock noise, something rubber catching the wheel maybe ? I've jacked the car up, and rotated each wheel manually, but can't hear it then.

CV joints perhaps?
If you apply full lock and slowly drive forwards you should hear the offending joint complaining. Repeat with the opposite lock if you don't hear anything.

I tried driving in full lock, both directions, nothing at all.
It feels almost like something soft/rubbery is catching at a particular place on each wheel rotation. I tend to hear most, when driving slowly, and braking gently.
