Tire squeal

I drive a twisty two-lane every day, and just recently I've started getting a lot of squeal from the front right tire. There isn't a peep on straightaways, but it really kicks in on both left and right hard sweepers where it never seemed to happen much before.

I'm thinking it may be something suspension-related since the air pressure is good and it happens the same even when I swapped it out with the spare. I think the only factor that changed recently was removing the 250 lbs of sand I had in the bed to help with winter traction.

Any thoughts?

Is the tire wearing correctly? check the tread depth in the middle and sides of the contact patch.

I have performance street tires, and if I turn sharp enough while going fast enough, they will squeel loudly.

How old are the tires that are on you truck, some tires get harder with age.
