Default Tire Rub

I've got a question: When i make a sharp turn to pull into a parking spot, I hear a rubbing sound from the frontleft wheel and i'm wondering if that is a bad thing? Because the truck pulls to the left, so i'm pretty sure I will need to get an alignment job, and I think that is the reason it does that. So if you guys have any ideas what it may be please tell me.
Thanx.

Look in your wheel well and see if you can see where its rubbing. It should be apparent to were it is rubbing. When you find out were your rubbing at let us know and we can help you take care of the rubbing issue also if you get an alignment and it takes care of the rubbing issue then still let us know all is well!!!

When youre getting that alignment, make sure they don't push the 4 wheel alignment on you..You only need front end alignment!

Before you spend money on an alignment, swap your front tires. Take the left tire on put it on the right side. If your pull goes away, or moves to the other side, its not your alignment. [8D]

If the pull is still on the left side, its not your tires.

While you have the ttire off, look for the rub spot.

Does it pull while braking or while driving?

Is this a rubbing noise, or a grinding noise?
