Normal. Now that you know what to look for, look at a few other vehicles with aluminum rims, and you'll see brown or black if they haven't been cleaned recently.

Soot / smoke accumulates on front rims


Nothing to do with fuel economy my friend,but that black soot is brake dust from your front pads.THAT's whats doing MOST of your braking.The front.YOUR problem,believe meit is YOU,is the fact that you do not use the emergency brake ever.Each time you put that emergency brake on,it adjusts the rear brake up a bit more,until eventually you have even braking force all around.Use the emergency brake EVERY time you park the car and get out.Eventually you'll notice that the black soot is minimal,but it will always be there a bit.Just keep the rear brakes adjusted up by using the e-brake a lot when stopped.That's also why the front pads ALWAYS wear out and back are still fine.NO emergency brake use.Rigger

Altima loss of clutch on turns


Well, I know nothing specific about your car in particular but ill try to work up an idea. Some systems incorporate the clutch and the brakes using the same fluid. Do you notice anything similar with your brakes?

My 2001 Nissan Altima has a squeeking sound coming from the drivers side wheel. It only squeeks when the car is moving. And I don't think it squeeks when I use the brakes. What could be causing it to...


You will need to pull the wheel off and inspect the brakes. Spray some brake fluid cleaner on the rotor and disc area to clean the brake dust off. Next, have the wheel bearing checked and replaced, a bad wheel bearing would cause your wheel to squeak.

Front rims get dirty and back ones stay clean


Hi Joanna, What you are seeing is perfectly normal and occurs on any automobile because the front brakes wear faster than the rear.  Notice that when you step on the brake, the weight of the car shifts forward, putting extra stress on the front breaks.  Next time in a parking lot, notice the same dirty front wheels of other cars.
