It's hard to tell what kind of rubbing noise it is making without hearing it. It could be that you need a new CV boot, or you might just need an alignment. Is the tire rubbing the plastic like guard? Your guard could be broken, and rubbing the tire as well. Does the car pull to one side when driving if you take your hands off the wheel? If yes, that is an alignment problem, and can mess up the turning of a vehicle, also kill your tires. You could need new bearings on the CV joint. It's hard to tell without hearing it. I'm female - not a mechanic, but those I've heard and helped my hubby fix before on other cars. (Except the alignment, that had to be done in a shop - computerized). Hope that helps.
