Default Tires making noise...

It seems like tires make more road noise now than before. This is more significant since right rear strut has been making squeaky noise whenever going over a bump.

Could this be due to bad strut or wheel alignment issue? or even possibly bad wheel bearing?

pretty normal for road noise to change as the tread wears on tires - lots of them get louder with time.

The squeak could be a bunch of things - I have been fighting similar issues - the front right strut was making all sorts of noise, as well as the backs (they were not as pronounced, though) - the dealer couldn't hear the rear, and said the front strut was bad and needed to be replaced. I had removed/cleaned/greased everything I could get to easily (swaybar bushings in front and back (tried the teflon tape thing for those), endlinks front and back, etc.) with no change. Then we had a rainy day (almost never happens out here) and the front strut became silent - they still replaced it, but I think the problem may be crud either on the strut (on the bumpstop, maybe) or the tophat - the rears still squeak - I plan to take a hose to them and really clean everything out, but haven't had a chance yet.
