Tin Can Rub

I use to think that whenever it rained the brakes or joints in my driver side wheel well would just take a little longer to dry out. but the sound of grinding tin on every rotation of the wheel is escalating. To give a quick background, this problem has been persisting since the spring. I'd notice it when the sound would reflect from the passing buildings. The left axle joint was replaced two years ago. these are the symptoms :

-i find that the sound stops when i ride the brakes

-the sound: sounds like a tin can being grinded up against a metal surface, the speed of the grinding follows the tires rotation.

-the sound is on and off, for the most part, i thought that i would only hear it when the sound reflects off of passing objects like houses. but its more of an off an on occurance. it'll sound fine for a second or two and then the sound would come back then off again and so forth.

I first thought that it was just rust from the rotor that was passing through the brake pads, but I sanded the rust down and the problem still pursists. I also sprayed everything around that wheel with brake cleaner and threw the air hose on it.
