excessive heat coming from tire.. wtf?

i only noticed this today but who knows how long it's been going on. i was driving around for about 40 minutes today, not breaking hard or doing anything out of the ordinary, and i go to check the air in my tires and discover that my rear driver's side tire is blazing hot compared to my other 3. i couldn't even put my hand on the rim without burning my hand. there seems like oil around the middle where the honda sign pops in, and my tire is hot, as well. when i went to put the air gauge in, smoke came from the inside. searched google and pz and couldn't find anything.


anyone have any clue what's going on?

It's most likely that the brakes are rubbing (read: staying on), and the heat on the wheel and tyre is just heatsoak.

The caliper might have frozen up. Both of my rear calipers froze up, and were keeping the brakes slightly on. Another symptom, besides heat, would be the smell coming from the brakes. If you don't smell anything, then I'm not sure what else it could be.

yeah, there really was no smell. we just took my tire off and loosened the caliper a bit. i also took all the air out of my tire and refilled it, just in case. my calipers have frozen up before, but my tire wasn't dragging at all this time.

i thought this first as well. tahts the only thing it could be because if it was the brakes you would smell something, PLUS have you noticed a change in gas mileage becasue a crappy bearing will keep you on the gas a little more to compensate for the drop in speed its causeing you. idk just my $0.02
