Grinding noise when I turn left

(2002 Mercury Cougar)
in San Antonio, TX on December 02, 2011
My car has started to make an ugly grinding noise when I turn left. I thought that I smelled an ugly burning noise last night but haven't noticed it since then. It appears to be isolated to my front drivers side tire.

Best to get it checked out could be brake or wheel bearing related but more likely to be tire related. The tire may be rubbing the inner fender liner, perhaps it's become detached.

POSSIBLY AN AXLE BOOT THAT IS BAD AND THE GREASE IS STARTING TO SMELL WHEN IT HITS THE HOT ROTOR
