Strange rubbing noise

STarting at about 10mph I'm getting a rubbing sound , like a baseball card on a bicycle tire. Seems to be coming from the driver front. Took a look around didn't see much of anything, ideas would be greatly appreciated

Do you have stock wheels? If you have wheels with hubcaps maybe you got something that slipped inside the hubcap rattling around. Maybe a prankster got you with the zip tie trick on the drive shaft.

Lol no zip tie, checked the wheel well everything looks to par. It's defiantly not anything engine related, it only happens when I'm moving. Would brake pad indicators do that ?? It's a high pitch humming driver front help

Maybe. Pull wheels off and check.

I has a similar problem with my wifes 2006 Commander (XK). Turned out the front passenger disc brake dust shield had corroded to the point of rubbing against the rotor once in awhile. I removed the corroded portions of the dust shield to solve the problem. Just something to consider before you go buying new front end parts.

A 2006? Wow! The shield didn't last very long.
