Default Golf Cart steering makes noise

Wonder what could be causing this? It happens when we turn the steering
wheel to the extreme right or left, usually coming out of our villa garage.
Doesn't happen during normal driving. Does it need lubrication? If so,
please let us know what to use and where to direct it. Don't want to cause
a problem. Thanks.

Default Noise when turning

What make of cart? What size tires? How long ago did you change tires?
What does the noise sound like? If you answer these questions I'll give it a try.

It is a Yamaha electric cart. the tires are good, they aren't making the noise.
The noise is like a squeaking noise, low pitch

Sounds like a Tie rod, squeeking from lack of lubracation or worn out. Not dangerous but should be corrected.

Ended up to be a wheel bearing. Took it to the dealer which we can drive to. They knew what it was right away. Was hoping it was just something needing lubrication.

Well I am glad it's getting corrected, a squeaking wheel bearing if not corrected could be dangerous.
