Exclamation Rububububub in left front wheel help.

Well I had to trun into the Post Office parking lot last week and the driveway curb wa sa little high my speed was a little too fast and the angle the wheel hit the curb was not good.

End result I put a good scuff in the sidewall of the P-Zero's but nothing compromising the tire's structure. A slight ding in the edge of a rim, a lil touch up and all better but I now here a rubbing sound coming from that tire that increases in pitch the faster i go. Not sure what it is.

It's not the tire eating a way at the platic shrouds , nothing i can see from looking through the rim. The alignment is fine and there is no "wobble"like a wheel bearing is going. I have yet to get the tire off but hoped someone could get me insiht on where to start.
Thanks in advance

Is it rubbing, or could you have taken a chuck out of the rubber that meets the ground. That can make a TON of noise.

Good call I'll take a look Would it not make a sound only when that spot hits the dround though? This is a conatant whirrrrr that increases in pitch with speed.
