overheating brakes

Didn't drive the lude much over the winter (michigan). Put the summer shoes on her and went for a good ride a few weeks ago, and now i think i have hanging calipers. i just did a complete brake job with brembo blanks and hps pads late last summer. yes i cleaned and lubed the slide pins with sil-glide.
it's the driver's side, first the front, then the rear, now today, both. wheels hot to the touch.
fwiw i didn't notice any overheating until i put the summer wheels and tires on. yes they are heavier than stock, but this isn't the first season running them and no probs last year.
anything i should check before i order new calipers?

Re: overheating brakes

If take them off and slide them to make sure they are ok. Also you will notice uneven brake Wear if the calipers are binding. Look at the inside pad to be more worn.

Re: overheating brakes

Try re-lubing them before you replace them... make sure the piston walls are clean from any old grease. Get a second person to push your pedal and watch the motion.
Sometimes they just hang for some reason.

I had a ford that the same caliper kept hanging on. 4 calipers before it stopped. Front passenger side rotor kept warping from the heat. It was under warranty so ford kept replacing parts. #4 worked.

Re: overheating brakes

Is there a proportioning valve that could fail and cause one side brakes to work harder than the other?

Re: overheating brakes

Don't forget the brake hose can have a tear on the inside making a caliper stuck applied! Don't ever rule it out.
