Default wheel rub or something?

I've noticed within the last week or so that at real low speeds(1-5mph) That there is some sort of rubbing noise on the drivers side rear tire. I've looked around in this area but there is nothing visible that could be rubbing and it is only this tire that is making any noise. Im not sure what it could be. Any ideas? Thanx

I could be wrong but what I'm talking about is not apart of the actual wheel/rim.....its the part in the middle of the rotor. When they go bad (AFAIK) they make a weird whurling noise thats hard to describe

Yup, jack up the car and rotate the wheel and listen carefully.
Also grab the wheel at the top and bottom (6 and 12) and try rocking it. Worn bearings will let the wheel move. Check the other rear wheel as well to compare.

A bad bearing sounds like a bit of a rumble that changes pitch with speed.

I was told that spinning one wheel (manually) was bad for either AWD cars or maybe just ones with LSD? Im not too positve on the validity of either, but a mechanic who speciallized in VR4's said it.
