Squeeky Wheel

I have a wire mesh wheel (http://www.petco.com/Shop/Product.as...amilyID=14900&) in one of my mouse cages. The only problem I'm having with it is that it squeeks horribly. I don't mind it so much, but it seems to scare one of the little girls and she's been avoiding it for a few days now since it started. What can I do to get it to squeek less, if not stop it completely?

I got a valentine!

I have a wheel similar to that and I use sunflower oil. Every night I take the wheel off the pegs and oil them (I rub them with a tissue that has oil on it). Solves the problem pretty well
