Squealing noise from wheels

Just came back from the road testing my 02 Boxster. I keep hearing this mysteious squealing noise from wheels when I'm not even braking. I hear it when my wheels are slightly turing in and out of the curve of the road. This has been going on like that in the past few drives. I take my Boxster out of the garage on weekends. Any guess?

Well, I hate to break this to you but... It is an extremely common thing for our cars to do this... Especially after sitting awhile... Rust forms on the rotors and while in motion it is making the squeling noise... It will get better eventually... Some people try the quick stop method to free some rust or they try the gas and brake method to clean it up too... I hope I helped...

I started hearing the squeeling last week. I just had a break job last month. Everything was fine until it started raining. That's when the squeeling started. Any connections?
