...after having new tires put on--suddenly there are major symptoms.Terrible squeaking noise when braking--squeaking with a "crunch" sound--and now similar sound when turning corners. It does this all the time now since new tires. Estimate is $900 for brakes alone. But are there times that cars do this after new tires when they don't need them? Last trip to mechanic for something else--was told "sometime you'll need new brakes..." Did the new tires create the "sometime"? Is this a stupid question?!

    No such thing as a stupid question if you need to know something you don't already know! Take your car to another repair shop and get a second opinion/price. In other words it really needs to be looked at to answer your question.
