Could the bearings cause a weird grinding sound like rubber on rubber when you brake although the tires seem OK?

im not an expert but it might be the wheel bearing seals not the bearings, if thos pop out then the wheel bearing grease will leek on the roter and start smoking and may catch on fire.

I would say either your brakes, or there's some part of your wheel well or mud flap hitting your tire, maybe something is loose or your suspension is worn and is allowing your tires to make contact with the wheel well.

The bearings on the alternator could be going bad. Remove the belt from the alternator then spin the alternator by hand to listen for grinding.

It could be brakes, bearings or something else altogether.
