Tire squeak .... little help?

So I have had my 2011 F250 since about late october, and just recently the weather has gotten nice enough to put the windows down. I have noticed since then that my front drivers tire has a terrible squeak to it. I called the dealership, but they said I would have to drop it off for the day so they could check. I really dont mind, as its only 10 min from my house, but if its something as silly as a spritz of BP blaster, im gonna feel stupid.

I made a quick vid, may have to turn it up a bit to hear it, but its the strangest thing. Sounds like brakes, but at 5,00 miles??? I installed a 2.5 lift, and new tires and rims, but I cant see that being an issue. I already tried to bend my heat shield back a bit, thinking it was rubbing, and sprayed a few contact points, but still nothing..

Any ideas before I head to the dealership?

Have you tried jacking it up and spinning it by hand. At least then you might be able to see where the noise is coming from.
