Default Extremely Hot Wheel Lug Nuts

My driver side wheel lugs get extremely hot after a short amount of
driving. THe passenger side is not nearly as hot. Had the caliper
checked and all was good. Could it be the caliper pins needing
cleaning and relube. These are aftermarket pads and rotors, but if
that was the problem, woulldn't both sides get extremely hot? Had new
rotors put on cuz the excess heat warped the rotors.

How was that determined?

The pads AND the pins ALL need to be floating freely. If the pads are
incorrectly-sized and are tight on their bracket, you can get symptoms
similar to a sticking caliper.

If all is indeed free, then the piston has rust spots and is sticking in
its bore.

Have you considered fitting JDM nut coolers?

Will check the pad and pin mobility. Thanks! If the pads are tight,
can the end be ground down slightly for a better fit...of course how
much is too much?

something was wrong with that diagnosis. brakes turn speed into heat.
if one is hot and the other not, either one brake is stuck on, or the
other is stuck off. either way, you need to get this sorted out with
proper caliper maintenance. you can buy genuine honda seal rubbers for
~$30 for a set and rebuild the calipers yourself if you know what you're
doing. for this age vehicle, it's a great safety investment and should
be considered anyway. dig about on tegger.com for how-to's.

dude, you really need to find a competent mechanic that knows what
they're doing. there's no way they should have wasted your money on new
rotors if they didn't fix the cause in the first place.

have you considered doing a basic mechanics course at your local
community college? if you run a clunker, it's a great investment in not
getting ripped off by incompetent "economy" mechanics. you don't have
to do the whole car - just basic maintenance or brake technician should
do it.

do not even think about doing this. if the pads don't fit, they're
either cheapo aftermarket crap, or you have rust that needs to be
cleaned off properly when you service the calipers.

the best pads for an accord [for all but extreme use] are genuine honda
pads. and at only $43 online, the same price as most aftermarket crap,
you're not saving any money by not using them. they even come with the
correct shims and correct grease too!
