LOUD METAL SQUEAKING/SCRATCHING NOISE FROM FRONT PASSENGER SIDE.

2003 Infiniti G35 • 6 cylinder 2WD Automatic • 95,000 miles

Yesterday I had the dealership put on winter tires. On my home I noticed a loud metalic squeaking noise coming from the front right (passenger) side of car. The sound is made when I go over bumps or dips in the road and when I make a left turn it seems more predominant, almost like metal scratching. Is this possibly the result of the new tires and an error in the installation?

If it didn't do it before, they changed something. I would recommend removing the wheel, checking the brakes, and making sure there is nothing that is wedged (like a stone).
