Rubbing with stock tires?

Strange issue developed over the last year and I can not pinpoint the issue. It sounds like a tire rubbing- the sound you would hear when the tire contacts a mud flap or wheel well liner. Thing is, I cannot find a clean spot made by contact. It is also not easy to duplicate on demand. When it does happen, it is not in a place I can stop and get out to look.
When does it happen? Imagine making a left turn onto a divided highway where there is an elevation change between the two sets of lanes. You have the wheels turned left slightly and you hit the elevation change at an angle so your axles are articulating some. As the truck rocks a little, I hear a sshhht sshhhht like something rubbing but there is no rubbed spot that I can see. I does not happen every time either.
Going into my driveway (residential neighborhood with the concrete driveway aprons) it does not make the noise. Over speed bumps or speed humps with wheels straight it does not.
I am also thinking a bushing or rod end maybe? Though, I would expect that to happen over bumps or dips going straight. Has anyone experienced this?
Truck is a 2015 CCLB w/ plow package, stock suspension, steering damper, wheels and tires. 40000 miles on the clock.

Wheel bearing????

Do tight slow circles in a parking lot. Both directions windows down.

Did the plastic rivets come out of your fender and causing random rubbing?

I did. The police came. Some soccer mom called them because I was in an elementary school parking lot.
Just kidding. Bearing was my first thought but it only happens on uneven surfaces when the axle is articulated and the cab is being rocked side to side. Flat ground she is quiet as a church mouse.

Hmmm.... That is a thought! Nothing looked off, but I did not pay a ton of attention to how the liner sits in the well. I did not see any clean spots in the well as I would expect from rubbing, but the weather has been so wet lately it may have had slop on it before I got a chance to look.
Other than that, my next course of action is to find a spot where it does it consistently and take everything out of the glove box, center console and under the back seat. Then hit it again. I pack gear pretty snug so nothing should be moving around but You never know. Thing is, I feel it in the steering wheel. Or I convince myself I do anyway.

I would look at the wheel bearing and the dust shield for the rotor.

Wouldn't the bearing make noise with the wheels straight though? A friend with a 2013 CCSB had his going and it always made noise. Almost like a mudder tire. I had one go in a Jeep and it was almost unnoticeable until you hit the brakes. Then it got loud once the weight transferred to the front.
The shield is a possibility too but again, it only happens with the wheels slightly turned and with the truck rocking left- right over uneven terrain. Speed bumps and speed humps are quiet. Its weird.

Probably in the beginning phase of failure...

Without being able to replicate the fault your gonna end up throwing parts or waiting for total failure.

You need to jack it up and see what's loose if anything..

I don't know if this helps. But check your brake lines. My tires were rubbing on mine (the flexible rubber part of brake line) and it would make a sound like it was rubbing on the fender skirting. I suspect this was a problem before I bought the truck, as it happened just within the first week of owning it.

I didn't know where it was coming from. I thought it was just the over size tires rubbing the fender. Until one day I parked at a convenience store. When I left, before even getting out of the parking lot, I had no brakes. Got out to inspect, saw brake fluid all over the ground on the driver's front.

ROFL. Luckily I had my cell phone and called the local auto store. They had the brake line in stock. So I called my mom and she brought me my bag of tools and the brake line.

I was very very very lucky, because I had just finished towing my nephews RAM 2500 on the highway. And this was on I-205 going across the Columbia River. My truck sits high up, If I had to swerve to avoid traffic, there was a good chance I would have gone over the barrier and down a couple hundred feet to the water.

So don't rule out your brake lines. Check them for tire clearance.

I'll look at the lines for signs of abrasion. The truck is all stock so it would surprise me but ya never know. Hopefully there is a dry day this weekend I can jack up one side of the front axle to maybe simulate the situation it happens.
Id be pretty disappointed if a bearing was going. 40k miles.
