The only thing likely to generate heat in the front whell hub is the brake disk, if this is not a result of driving habit (accelerating and braking hard) then you probably have a caliper binding slightly.
A quick way to establish this is if the car drifts to one side if you let go of the steering wheeel on a straight road or it pulls to one side when braking. If it is a binding caliper it is quite easily remedied by taking off the calipers and cleaning and greasing the slides.

Got on highway last week car started shimming got home front wheel was burning hot replaced front caliber drove 120 miles fine now today have same promblem


You might want to have a mechanic take a look at your
master cylinder, especially if you replaced the brake caliper on the hot wheel. If you didn't replace the brake caliper on the hot wheel, you should do that first. They do go bad from time to time. They can get stuck in the on-braking position and drag and cause all that heat to build up. Shimmy was probably caused by a heat warped rotor.

Front tyre makes noise while braking


for the rim to get very hot the heat has to come from either a tyre that is almost flat or wheel bearings that are failing. If the first is not obvious then with a brake noise I would be looking at the wheel bearings.

1992 Taurus LX. I drive 1-2 miles and left front wheel gets extremely hot. I have replaced front calipers, discs, rotors, and front brake lines plus bled system repeatedly. Only things left are Master...


I would say neither. You need to raise that wheel and see if the caliper is retracting enough to let the wheel spin free. If it is locked up, I could be a collapsed brake hose on that wheel. The rubber hoses can do that.
Also check if it is a wheel bearing problem. Is the center of the wheel hot? A bad bearing can heat up.

How hot should both front wheels feel to touch after short trips? Mine are VERY Hot Rears are considerably cooler. What could casue this?


If you have very hot front wheels not stand to touch the rims not the discs - because the discs are very hot due to brakes impact friction- then it is one thing either you have semi blocked pressure hoses on calipers or sticky calipers,or master cylinder or ABS Accumulator. But I suggest to start from the pressure hoses,by jacking up the car on a stand pump the brakes several times and try to rotate the wheels,if are tight to spin then open the bleeder on the caliper to release pressure if kept in and retry to spin the wheel. If are free the you confirm that are your front brake pressure hoses. good luck

the wheel bearings are going out if thay are now starting to heat up you need to replace them. but you can first jack up the front end ( both sides off ground together) get a long( 8' or better) 2 x 4 and place under wheel on ground andput presure on tire up wad and the tie sould move in a good bearing but if tire moves aound like its lose then it needs replaced

Front left wheel periodicly causes front vibration


The brake pad/shoe on the left front wheel may be coming off gradually. When it touches the drum/disk it causes friction and thus heats up the left wheel rim. With this heat the tyre pressure goes up, naturally. Please have the brakes checked and adjusted.

2005 Hyundai Sonata. Rear wheels very HOT


Did you remember to release the e brake?

Sounds like brakes hanging, foot on brake, or something that causes brakes to be on all the time, at least a little.

Yes this will damage everything that you described..and more. Brakes will work poorly...

Vw passat 1.9 tdi 2001 squeaking noise from the front


Yes it could be the wheel bearing. After stopping, see if the wheel itself is hot to the touch (like burn your hand hot) if so, take it to the shop right away...unless you plan to change out the wheel bearings yourself.

Right front wheel gets hot.


It sounds like a classic "hot brake", your caliper is probably stuck depressed on the rotor. You will probably need to replace the caliper and both front rotors as the one that is getting hot is probably warped. They are replaced in pairs. Get the rotors/caliper and do it yourself. It really is a simple task with minimal tools/mechanical expertise. Get a Hanyes repair manual and it will be a breeze and save you $1K.

Front wheel discs red hot after driving


They're turning hot because you clamped off the rear lines. Now the fronts are being overworked - they're heating up because they're doing 100% of the stopping instead of the usual 70% or so. Replace the line and bleed the system before you destroy your entire braking system.
