Scraping noise from right front tire/brakes

Ok...heres my prob. each time when i drive the prelude on really, REALLY, bumpy wavy roads, and hard braking on a steep downhill my car's right front would make a scraping noise, I could only hear it when the windows are open. The noise isn't constant, the scraping noise would be heard after the tires make one revolution. The car would still make those werid noises after it gets onto smoother roads. The noise didn't go away until i pulled over for about a minute then start driving again.

In Short.....
1.) Car's front right would make scraping noises after downhill+rough roads.
2.) Noise sounds like a butcher knife being dragged across concrete.
3.) Noise stops after i pull it over for a minute.
4.) Noise still occurs after i release the brakes and start moving.

Go buy some Honda pads. But check your pads and see if they need to be changed.

Don't worn brake pads make noises only when you press on the brakes, but mines still make noises when i don't have the brakes pressed, and it only makes noises after driving on rough roads, and extended downhill braking.

Your brakes could be really hot at that point and slightly oversized(from heat)... Anyone, else?

when your brake pads get low there should be a noise all the time IIRC.

There's a piece of metal somewhere on the pad so when it get's too low it makes a squeel. I would say change em, can't hurt anything, it's not that expensive.

I had the same problem coming from my front right pad... I had brand new cermaic pads and new rotors and everything! I was so confused. As it turns out the pad was in the caliper just slightly off (not sitting perfectly square) and it was ever so slightly rubbing the rotor. It made a nasty metal scraping metal sound all the time, especially when I would depress the brake, but would not completely go away when I let off... If you do your brakes yourself, take the caliper off and make sure you lube your caliper bolts!! This is supposed to be extremely important on honda brakes! check your pads and make sure you still have enough pad and the early warning sensor is not rubbing, because that will cause squealing too! While there it would not be a bad idea to go ahead and have the rotors turned at your local part store! Since it is SO easy to take the rotors off just so long as those two anal screws are not rusted in!!! Good luck!
