If there is a squeaky noise coming from any of your wheels and from pressing on the brakes, then I am supposing that there is something wrong with your brakes. From my past experiences with squeaky noises coming from my wheels, I got it checked out by a mechanic and he said that my brakes were worn out to the point where I was going to lose brake control in the wheels that were squeaking. I would suggest you get your squeaky wheel and brakes checked out by a mechanic. You might have to only change the brakes if its not too serious. I wish you the best of luck!
