I checked my front rotors and brake pads and they seem completely fine.

When I am braking while my wheels are turned to the right or left they sound as if they are grinding at any speed.
This never occurs while I am braking as my wheels are straight ahead or at a very slight angle at any speed as well.

I was wondering if anyone has ever had an issue with this or could point in the right direction of what it might be?

I tried to see if I could find a thread with anyone who may have had this issue and I couldn't find anything. Mind you I am very new to 'forums' so I may not have been doing it correctly and I apologize is this issue is talked about regularly and I'm not aware.

could be a few things. try this:

Jack the front up and spin your wheels listening for either an intermittent metallic scraping noise or a more pronounced and continuous metallic scraping/grinding noise. If you have the first noise you may have warped one or both of your rotors and when applying the brakes, when the high side comes around you will hear an intermittent metallic scraping noise. That's an easy fix. Have your rotors turned and you should also inspect your pads. If its the continuous noise it may well me either one or both rotors are terribly warped and/or your brake pads are worn down or your wheel bearings (unit) are fixing to fail. good luck. This thread should be in the Stock section or the General discussion section. Good luck.
