Is it weird for new brakes to be smoking and the smell of something burning coming from them? These brakes are brand new I just drove the car home from the shop. It was a 10-15 mile trip with 75% highway and no major braking (other than the usual) Should I be concerned? I'm hoping its just something on the new brakes burning off from the heat. If something is wrong, is it safe to drive? ( a little) Edit: It was the front drivers side brake (could have been others) on a 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee. It was a very small amount of smoke. Also I didn't drive through any rain or water so it wouldn't be steam.
