Brake rubbing noise occasional

I have an odd rubbing noise coming from the wheels/brakes occasionally when I slightly turn and depress the brakes. Usually it happens when turning into my driveway which has a slight drop gutter between asphalt and concrete driveway.

I can't reproduce it when I try. It kinda feels like when your brakes get soaked in water and then apply the brakes.

It only happens when slow, slight turn, and brakes.

I've checked the lines and other things in the area and see nothing that is rubbed or damaged.

Any idea what it is?

Many others reported the same, you can search the forum and see if its the same issue, its normal (I think for a new jeep it should not be there but...).. You need to live with this.

Anything involving your brakes should get a second or possibly a third opinion for. Any noise you hear should be thoroughly checked out.

I searched the forum prior, but only came up with issues with lines. I'll try some other word combinations.

I have a 2.5 lift with 33’s with lots of clearance, so I'm certain it,s not tires.

Will keep looking. Thanks
