i hear a whinning noise when i am off the throttle and coasting along, sounds like my drive belt....i just had a new tire put on so could this be from over tigthening the belt?

two things come to mind-belt tension and/or wheel alignment...

Sure sounds like a belt that's too tight,Lynx...

go back to were you had the tire installed and ask them to cheak it out for you like they said above belt tenshion or out of alinment

I agree, your belt is likely too tight. Take it back to the shop that installed the tire. FYI, there is no need to mess with the belt adjustment/alignment when changing a tire. You just have to knock the axle out and take the wheel off. My '00 RKC has 48k on it. I have never adjusted the belt.
