ZII "rubbing" noise

Was curious if anyone else has encountered any slight "rubbing" noise from the DUnlop ZII's. I just recently put these on and every now and then I hear a light rubbing sound from the front. Now, I also had the the alignment and camber done at the same time. The tire is 245/40 and they were ablet o get -2.3 camber.

I've looked and I can see anything that might be rubbing against it...Not loose plastic, it's not hitting the strut or fender, tire pressure is 34 first thing in the mornings. Today on teh drive home I thought maybe it might be I'm hearing the road hitting the grooves on the sides of the tread? Due to the little bit of camber, and maybe it's not something I've heard before these tires.

Random question, but just thought I'd ask.

I have the ZII and no strange noises.
Running -3.0 camber and zero toe.

Is the noise at random times; suspension under compression; cornering etc??????

a 245 40 section tyre is prob the issue. 35 section would deem no rub most likely. i tried a 245/40 and even static i could turn the wheel to lock and it would visibly contact the fender liner. luckily i tried them static and hadn't driven the car a that point, i moved to a 235/40 and fitment is non rub.
