new left tires are squeaking...

... it is relative to the speed I am going.... it will continue till a complete stop is attained... meaning as I stop it gets slower until it is almost like a croak as the tire comes to a stop.... it is only one spot on the tire that makes it squeak... as that part of the tire comes in contact with the road.... it squeaks these are new tires on new rims... they did not do this when they were put on 5/21 ... any ideas??? anyone....

First thing that comes to mind is a loose lugnut....

Next maybe the wheel weights causing the squeek..

Or does it have hub caps? maybe the problem is with them.. If it does I would take them off and see if the noise goes away...

Also with new rims they may be rubbing if not the same backspacing..

Just a few items to check out..

Put one on the other side then you'll have stereo tires instead of the old radio tires. LOL

found out that there are two lips on my wheels and if the tech did not mount them right the tire will flex at this point and cause a squeak... company (kmc) said that it happens in 1% of the tires mounted... causes no harm... have to unmount tire and re-mount... find out this afternoon if he is right....

That would be an easy fix...my tire guy thought it was probably the loose nut behind the wheel!!!
