Diesels do not idle smoothly like gas engines. They can flunctuate a couple hundred RPMs while ideling.

As for your problems, I would take it to an alignment shop. Have it checked and as mentioned check the dust covers for the brakes.

I hit a deer a couple weeks ago with mine too, pushed up the bottom corner of the front bumper enough to make the tire rub when turning... wasn't really noticable by looking at it. I just hooked up a come along to a tree and pulled it back to where it should be. I dunno if that may be why your tires are rubbing sometimes, but worth a check.
