Wheel Noise?

(2001 Dodge Stratus)
in Denver, CO on May 14, 2009
Just noticed a couple weeks ago that there was a fairly high-pitched noise coming from the right front side of the car which increases. Now the noise is also on the left front side. It only happens in the mornings (after warming it up for about 5 minutes) but never makes the noise in the afternoon when I'm driving home from work. Also, the noise increases anywhere between 30-35 mph, but once I get up to 40 mph, the noise stops. I'm at a loss as to what it could be.

It hard to guess at the source of the problem with out being able to drive the car first hand and get an impression of what is actually going on. Check the obvious for sure, the brake pads. Secondly I would check the wheel bearings. I have had wheel bearings make noise a little intermittently before they started making noise all the time.
