First things first, check your wheel nuts are tight.

Failing that check the alloys thoroughly for any scoring marks where they might be catching/fouling the brake caliper or other components.

sounds like theyre catching something mate. Take it off and,as scooby says,check the wheel for scratches,it may have hit the caliper ot even worse,the damper body

What i'd do mate is, jack the front of the car up and spin the front wheels round with your hands to see if they feel free, if not there probly rubbin and you will need spaces, if they feel free it maybe your front wheel bearings, or dust on a rubing brake pad.

Is the pad correctly located in the caliper?

Any scoring on the disk?

I can agree with Stuy, last night I dismantled my rear driver's side caliper due to it screaming. The pad was not in correctly, when I put it back together, it stopped completely.
