Oddly, I had this happen because the plastic cover on the inside of the front wheel well got a bit lose (lost a plastic rivet or whatever). Anyway, it stuck forward just enough to touch the tire when turned; especially under braking when the car's weight shifts forward. Try to put something gooey on the plastic piece and drive around in circles and let it make noise. If the goo has been rubbed off and traces are on the tire, then you know it is rubbing.
Hope this helps,
