Driver Tire Rubbing

I have noticed on my '14 TDI Lux that my front drivers side tire rubs in hard right turns.

It physically rubs on the plastic vents on the front of the wheel well, right about the access cover for the fog light.

It appears that the wheel well liner on the driver's side does not provide as much clearance as the passenger side. The liner appears to be secure, there is no play in it. Not sure if something is pushing it out from the inside yet, will check when it is a little warmer.

It makes a noticeable sound when it does rub.

Tires are 265/50 R19s, on OEM VW 19 inch rims.

Has anyone else experienced this?

Thanks in advance.
