When I had that happen I found that the lug nuts were loose, once installed and torqued correctly it stopped.

I had a squeak on the front end that drove me crazy, come to find out it was the wheel covers.
What about taking it back to the tire shop and asking them to check loose lugs(Mr_D) and the wheel covers.

To see if it's the hub caps ( wheel covers ) just pry them off a bit.

Mine were rubbing the tire when it spread out on the bottom making it squeak.

Sometimes the BIG rubber hammer or workers boot, bends the flange in.

The hub cap rubs against the rim. You have to remove the hub cap and repaint the edge of the rim or lubricate it in some way.

My wheel covers were touching the sidewalls of the tires. I used soft jaw pliers and bent the flanges out, where they were noticably bent in.

No paint, no lube.

I suppose, I shouldn't have kicked them on, so hard.

Try the re-torque the lug nut route, then drive the coach with the wheel covers removed.
If the noise is still there, put a chalk mark on the tire sidewall, then walk beside the coach while it's being driven at low speed in a quiet parking lot; if the noise happens when one section of the tire is on the road, then there is a very good chance you have a tire separation in the sidewall.
Could you post the tire brand and the build date ?
Are the tires original to the coach?
What year is the coach ?

Squeaking tires

Michelin tires? Maybe it's the sidewall cracks rubbing together?😆

Had the same problem on my previous coach. For sure, re-torque the lug nuts. Secondly, if you have hub caps, try removing them and see if the squeak stops. As stated above, as the rim flexes, the hub cap will rub against the rim and cause the noise you are describing.
