Do you have stock tires and wheels? Sometimes, custom wheels and oversized tires look great but don't fit exactly. Don't spray any more lubricants, you risk contaminating the brake pads. You may have a wheel bearing failure in progress. Jack up the car one side at a time and inspect the wheel well for rubbing and spin the wheel while listening carefully. Also, give the wheel a firm tug at the top and bottom to see if the ball joints or bearings are loose.
