Default squeaky sound coming from car

Hi all!!! I was driving around car lots this weekend slowlyyyyyyy looking perrtttyyyyy Bonnevilles.....and I kept hearing this squeaking noise. It is not the brakes...it happens as soon as the car starts to roll and keeps doing it until the car stops.....Does anyone have any idea what it could be? Thanks

the brakes.

does the sound change at all when the brakes are applied.. Does the tone change, does it get louder or quieter?

no the sound doesnt change at all with the brakes...It is a constant noise...not affected at all by whether the brakes are applied or not

can you describe where the noise is coming from? Front or Rear, and which side of the car

it sounds like you have a wheel hub starting to go bad... have you noticed if the sound changes while turning?

i would have it checked out for sure, it doesnt sound like a safety issue to me, based on my experience im leaning toward a wheel hub, but they USUALLY change pitch when cornering
