Angry Burning smell and hot rim Help!

Guys so today I swapped out my big 35's for a summer 33" hwy tire.. Prior to the swap there was no smell or heat on the rim.

Since the swap the front left rim is real hot and I can smell burning brakes or rubber basically a clutch burning smell for those who have smelt that before.

My question is.. No whining noise increasing with speed rules out the hub assembly.. Correct?

2nd question is the caliper? How can I isolate it to that sticking?
I don't have any metal wear bar noise that a low brake pad would give me, so in thinking caliper..

3rd replacement options.. Motor craft? Or what?

Thanks for help guys really need advice

To check the front hub/bearing, jack the wheel up and wiggle it top and bottom, there should be little to no play. I would think that if it is making a smell and not squealing, it is probably your caliper and not a seized bearing. You could try pulling the caliper off and seeing if it moves freely by compressing the pistons with a c-clamp and a piece of metal or the break pad.

Sorry if you've already figured this out,but I just had the same problem and when I pulled the wheel the inner brake pad was worn almost completely out and the outer was still like new. Anyway the "float" pins on the caliper mount were seized from rust and disassembly and cleaning/greasing them freed them up and my heat/smell went away.
