Question: What could a shrieking sound coming from tire vacintiny be?

About a week ago when i would leave a parking spot and i would here a noise from the vacinity of the tire that sounded like something was dragging but there was nothing dragging on the ground. Recently the noise escalated to a lound screaching sound whenever i would drive, no matter where but it is not my engine because when i am at a complete stop it makes no noise. I just recentl got my brakes done 5 months ago.
