Question noise from front left tire

I have 225/40/18 on

the weird noise only happen when braking to a complete stop or to a very slow roll... the harder I braked the louder the sound was and it faded away as the car slowed down

it sounded like the tire was rubbing the fender...

it sounded from the front tires more like from the front left.

anyone has any idea that it is? I supposed 225 clears the fenders nicely



thanks in advance for the feedbacks

If the sound comes back I'd consider rotating that tire to the back. If the sound moves then its the tire. If it stays in the front left then its suspension/brakes, or like you suggested - tire rub. Also, did you check the fender for signs of tire rub? If its a prolonged noise like it seems to be from the way you described it then there should be some marks on the fender from the rubbing.
