SOURCE: My rear passenger tire started smoking what could

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.

SOURCE: Back Tire on 1997 Nissan Quest xe is smoking from

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!!

SOURCE: smoking from rear tire on passenger side,what could it be

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

SOURCE: my rear passenger brakes are smoking and producing a lot of brown dust. What would cause that?

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!!

Rear passenger tire smoking and very hot

smoking tyres ( unless you are doing burn outs) run very hot and smoke because they have been running flat or well underinflated . This over heats the tyre and the inside breaks down and then tyre is ruined and has to be replaced.. Have the tyre shop check for puncture material.

Rear tire noise

How many miles on your 328? My son's car was making a grinding noise and our independent mechanic told me it was the rear differential. I assumed he was correct and bought a replacement. However, before I installed it, I noticed the outer 3/4" of his passenger side rear rotor was discolored and no longer shiny. His brake caliper was grinding the rotor! It was because the hub bearing was so badly worn. I replaced the bearing and all is well.

I have a '98 dodge neon and the passenger rear

Back up... on asphault and it will usually release... Usually this is caused by either a sticking ebrake cable, overly worn drums w/New shoes, and sometimes a bent spindle.. Dont keep applying the ebrake this will hinder the problem if any of the above are the issue. Once it frees up take it apart, if the cables stuck many times you can back off the cable adjustment and pry it back to release it, then replace it accordingly. If it isnt the cable, once its loosened up, back off adjuster wheel, remove drum and take it to your local parts store and have it sized, they will tell you if its out of spec, also look for wheel cylinder leakage and contamination.. Lastly if neither are the problem, then it probably has a bent spindle and gets jammed at certain brake application.. I have run into all three on NEONS

How should I rotate my tires? I've had people say front to back, side to side? front to front, back to back?

It really depends on the tires. Some tires have a one-way tread pattern and are only supposed to rotate in one direction (i.e. ones that pull water away from the center of the tire). In this case, you must rotate driver-rear to driver-front and passenger-rear to passenger-front. If you have a symmetrical tread pattern, you should rotate driver-rear to passenger-front and passenger-rear to driver front.

If you post a picture of the tread pattern, I can tell you which you should do.

Im am rotating tires on a 94 jeep cherokee the

Move the passenger side rear tire to the front, and passenger side front to driver side rear. Switch the driver side rear tire to the front and driver side front to passenger side rear. Repeat this "X" pattern each time you rotate the tires. Rotate the tires from side to side if the tires are different sizes on the front and rear.

This is the better solution. Hope helped (remember rated this help)

For more details about Jeep Cherokee, review the Service Manual.

Good luck.
