Wheel Noise.....I Think

My Impreza has started making a kinda squeeking noise, it goes -- squeek.......squeek....squeek...ect.
Can hear it with the windows closed easily when in traffic jams especially, and the squeeking gets faster and faster the quicker any knows what i mean by that. Most of the time now though u can hear it while driving around at 30-40mph, what i weird is that it is gone if going in a straight line, as soon as I turn the wheel even to go round the slightest turn in the road at low speeds the squeeking comes back straight away, turning either way, it dont matter, it also mostly stops not not always when I take the foot for the gas and let it roll, then the noise goes nealry not always though when I brake. The brake pads dont need replacing coz there is none left, and I dont think its a brake pad / disc noise, this is my fiirst Impreza though and could be wrong, but dont sound like brake noises from all the other cars I have had.
Thanx for any help out there.

You say "The brake pads dont need replacing coz there is none left" ??????
It could be the wear indicators on the pads they are designed to squeel when getting low.......
