Tires squealing when going around a corner with a decent amount of speed

So when ever I go around a corner with a decent amount of speed and I'm not talking about flying around the corner, I'm just not going slow the tires squeal. I'm not sure if it's the front or back but what could be causing this? I have checked the wear on my tires as well and all 4 look to be wearing evenly.

Any suggestions to what may be causing this?

That's weird because in all of the cars I've owned I've never had the problem. I hope someone has a solution to this problem. I'm gonna check my wheel bearings though.

I don't need to slow down... I'm doing like 30 KM's going around large corner before a merge lane. If anything I should be going faster.

It's a truck, tires squeal. I can go 15 mph around a corner and one of my tires will break, doesn't do it all the time though.

It's not wheel bearings or it would be grinding. It's either how you drive or the tire compound wearing

Yes, this is very common with vehicles that have truck beds on them. You should take it to a mechanic and tell them about the tires squealing when you go around a turn too fast. They will probably tell you to buy a car so you don't have rear wheel drive. Problem solved.

I see in your sig you have 4.10 with LS.

I have the same thing. If I gas it just right the LS kicks in and I can hear the inside tire trying to keep up with the outside tire. The rear end doesn't kick out or anything.

Maybe you have this combined with tires that like to yell.

Only time my tires do this is when I'm either going to fast or when my tires are low on air.

I have alot more then half thread left. It will probably squeal if it gets knocked out of alignment but if it doesn't it should be fine.
