Default Tire Squeel

Ok, My focus has been parked for 3 months while I was at work, now whenever I do a sharp turn (pulling into the driveway off to the side of mine and reversing down my driveway, or turning out of a parking lot) the tires squeal badly. it never did it until now, my moms Mazda CX-7 has always done it. Bad tires, or what?

Also, What would cause a belt to squeal for like the first 2 seconds of a car moving after starting it and then go away, its on the drivers side of the engine, it could be the trans and its pretty loud (I can hear it over my music and the sound of the engine. )

I'd spray some belt shampoo on the belt...if that fixes the problem (temporarily) then you know the belt is what's squeaking.

As for the tires, is there any way flat spots could've developed? I'm not sure about that one, but it's the best idea I can come up with.
