Tires throwing something into undercarriage?

I've had a 2LT and 2SS 2011 camaros, and on one occasion now in both cars, it felt and sounded like a tire weight being flung into the frame when I was driving around 30 mph, or like a heavy stone into thick steel (not like when you drive over loose tar). I thought it was just a fluke when it happended with the V6, but just tonight the V8 did the same thing. Happened on a clean road with no rocks. All the wheel weights seem to be there, so I don't know what it was. Ever happen to anyone else?

Check your driveshaft for missing bolts. That is what they sound like when they get thrown.
