'03 Rubicon awful squeal noise

I just got this jeep so I don't know much about it. My front brakes were replaced about 3 months ago, rotors and drums. I had one bad shock and serpentine belt also replaced at that time. About 2 months ago I started hearing a horrible squeal when I pressed on the brakes. I then noticed this squeal while the vehicle was in motion at a slow speed. I took it back to the brake shop and they told me brakes were fine...the squeal was due to "pressure on the axle due to after market wheels". The wheels I have are the original Rubicon wheels - nothing after market. Any ideas?

Take to a different mechanic because he don't even know what a stock vehicle looks like. and apparently has never worked on a jeep. Im a mechanic and know the wheel regardless if its aftermarket or stock wont make a noise. lol I wish i could help you but I would have to see it in person. Is there any places that deal with aftermarket parts around you? Places like that understand vehicles better
only when we are not afraid do we begain to live.
