OT: 5 mph tire screeching...

Hi all,

Happy Father's Day!

My daily driver is a 2001 Chevy S10 4x4 pickup truck.

I've noticed in the last few days when I am making turns (close to 90 degrees) my tires screech as if I was speeding on turns or ripping out.


This happens as slow as 3-5 mph. Anyone have any clue as to why it would do this?

is that either that the rear differential isn't working correctly (partially locked?), or somehow 4wd is engaged or partially engaged.

1) your tires are getting older and less grippy.

2) Chevy engineers may have sacrificed correct steering geometry at extreme angles in order to get a shorter turning radius. I know my xterra does the same.

3) both the above

4) worn joints or other parts may be causing misalignment when you're hard a-port or a-sta'board. 'Specially if it's getting worse.
