Screeching tires is noticeable especially when the car is turning from a corner even at normal speed.

Troubleshooting car problems of screeching tires during cornering
Screeching tires during cornering can cause by two reasons, an alignment problem or improper tyre pressure, either your car tire pressure is under inflate or over inflate, with that said, check which of the two is causing screeching tires.

First check if your tire is under inflate or over inflate, as you may not aware of, tires that have an improper tyre inflation pressure have a tendency to slip specially during turning a corner.

To check your car tire pressure get a tire pressure gauge and measure the tire pressure on all of your car tires, compare it the car manufacturer standard value, usually the standard tire pressure of your car can be seen on the sticker adhere on the drivers side door or you may check it in your car owner’s manual, if your car is within the recommended tire pressure by the car manufacturer then the problem is not the improper tyre pressure.

If the problem is not the tire pressure then the problem is about the steering angle or misalignment. When turning to a corner your car must be of correct steering angle or alignment because if not, your tires will slightly drag across the pavement that resulted screeching tires.

Some repair shop may told you that they cannot do an alignment without replacing some of your car front-end part if this is the case consider an option of seeking second opinion before proceeding with the replacement to solve the screeching tires.
