Are you sure it's the tire? It could be the brakes (not releasing) which could result in 'smoke'. The only way it could be the tire would be if it was rubbing on something, or you were spinning or locking up the tires. Feel the center of the wheel when you see the smoke, if it's very hot, it's probably the brakes not releasing.

yes that is the expansion valve! there is a hissing sound from the restriction in it for a pressure drop thats what makes the a/c cold the hissing is normal

Sounds like you have a brake or wheel bearing seized on that vehicle, best to let it completely cool off before attempting anything.
jack rear tire and support with jack stand, try turning the tire by hand once its off the ground, if it turns or doesn't turn either way you must pull the wheel and determine what the cause is or was for all that smoke and smell.
Pull the brake drum and check the wheel cylinder for leaks and if it is frozen holding the rear brake locked on that side if it is replace the brakes both rears and wheel cylinders both rears and the appropriate brake drums if they are worn out and heat cracked.
If the brakes appear to be hanging due to the emergency brake hanging up, spray the emergency cables, try to adjust the cables after you replace the brakes, bleed and adjust the system and walla you are safe and sound.
If you have a frozen wheel bearing you must remove the frozen bearing off the rear spindle stub shaft, either bty heat or impact chisel, check spindle for signs of wear if ok just lightly sand with 180 wet/dry paper, pull out the bearing and punch out the inner outer races along with the inner grease seal and replace all five items, repack the bearings and hub with a high temp resistant wheel bearing grease, re install the brake drum re install the hub nut and cotter pin to a proper torque and walla... Happy Motoring!!

Is your parking brake fully dis-engaged? It could be a wheel braring, too. Raise that tire off the ground and spin it and shake it. If you have any noticeable play or wobble, check the wheel bearings

Sounds like that brake is stuck on, or at the very least BINDING badly. It will need the wheel and brake drum removing so that the operation of the brake cylinder can be checked. IF the brake cylinder piston isn't fully retracting, then it will need to be either: stripped and overhauled, or replaced. The challenge then is that when ONE cylinder has begun to be problematic then it's very likely that others will also be close to this point as well. To be truthful, if you're in this position, it'll be best to have a complete (four wheel) brake overhaul. Safest and most economical in the long run. Best of luck!!
