I got a bloody squeek coming from my front wheel. It happened after driving on a dirt road. Could it just be dust in somewhere it shouldnt be and a wash could fix it or could it be worse?

is there a slight clunk that goes with that sqeek??

it could be and sounds like bushes.. if its been on a dirt road the extra vibration that is caused may have been enough to cause it to deteriorate.

yeh bushes...could also be wheel bearings but may also be as simple as alot of dust n s**t on your brake calliper or hub....this will cause a squeak.

Is it only at certain times like cornering...just rolling or breaking ? or all the time? etc etc

maybe take the wheel off and give it a good hose or better pressure hoses job and try n scrub off as much brake dust n grime n s**t as ya can....put it all back together warm up the brakes n see how she goes...
