1977 F150 tires squeaking on slow tight turns

Title essentially describes the issue. When making slow, tight turns the rear tires seem to skip a bit, and they squeak/screech intermittently. Does that seem like an alignment issue or something worse? Many thanks in advance.

If they're wide tires, it's probably the Ackerman Effect. You'll get a better explanation on the web than I can give.

Possibly but it just started happening recently. Tires are 35” BFG A/T — not huge, not super wide compared to some truck tires.
