The tire is probably hitting something under the car. Use your eyes. Turn the wheels right, and then look underneath to see what is happening. Look at BOTH wheels and the steering links.

It also could be in the suspension (faulty steering bearing), or a brake line dragging on something.

Also look for a bit of gravel or a tree limb that might be jammed in the works. One time, I found a plastic sack in there.

If that doesn’t work, have someone turn the wheels while you get underneath and listen (with the car in park). If you have good stereo hearing, you should be able to find where the noise is coming form.
