what is the wire called that runs from the tire to the engine
tire was rubbing and when i pulled in the yard it started smoking and fluid drained out then
the tire went flat. i took the tire off and i saw a burnt wire
That's probably not a wire if it has fluid draining out. It sounds like your brake line. If it is a wire then it will be the ABS wire.
