Probably not the case, otherwise besides the scraping noise your car would be handling(steering) very oddly......but our '12SL had an unfortunate encounter with a curb, just the tire and from the outside nothing really looked damaged but what happened was the "A" looking thing that supports the lower part of the front wheel got bent, it was basically very thick sheet metal which shocked me! I could have sworn on past cars they were forged steel or much heavier metal. Anyway when I looked closer I noticed the drivers side(the one that hit the curb) the tire was not half way between the front and rear of the wheel well, it was several inches closer to the rear and several inches further from the front. When you'd steer a particular way the tire would rub inside the wheel well. Now in this case the car had some really weird steering but if I were you I'd either look at that lower "A" thing looking for it to be bent or measure the distance from the front and read of the tire to the front and rear of the wheel well and compare sides, on ours the passenger side was dead centered, not so on the drivers.
I ended up taking the car to a local Meineke repair shop where for about $700 they replaced the lower "A" and aligned the car, no more rubbing and runs and steers like a champ now. I can only imagine what the repair work would have cost at my local Nissan dealer
