Persistent Rim Rub (19x700c)

I have a spot on my front wheel that is giving me a persistent rub when applying my brakes. I have had problems like on other wheel sets before but was able to alleviate them by tuning the wheel for spoke tension, rim positioning, rim width, and truing, but not this wheel. It measures 19.7mm before and after the seam. The weld looks flawless and even. The spokes do not have abnormal tension from the other spokes. I have checked every thing I can think of and this wheel still gives me that slight rub in seam area when applying the brakes. Is it possible that the rim is changing its shape when I have my weight on it? Maybe the seam has nothing to do with the problem...

No matter where your at... There you are... Δf:=f(1/2)-f(-1/2)
