Avalon - Grinding sound while turning left


I have a Toyota Avalon 1998 vintage with about 140000 miles on it.

Of late, i hear a grinding sound when i turn left. The tires are new and i have been hearing this sound both before and after the tires were replaced. The brake fluid levels are OK as well.

Has anybody faced this problem before? Is this a problem with bearings or brake pads?

I would suspect the wheel bearing.

Some times the break wear indicator will hit the rotors when turning harder. I guess you would have noticed the pads being worn out when the tires were replaced.
