check your brakes they may be dragging and check your wheel bearings. Wheels get warm but they should not get real hot.

I would ask, what do you consider 'hot'?

And also, how and when are you checking them?

If you're checking them right after a stop, then you're going to read some residual braking heat from the stop. You have to remember that those brake shoes are big ole friction pads and even braking for a few seconds is going to heat the hub up and therefore heat the wheel up to a certain extent.
