Smoke coming from left front wheel.

Asked by Jul 14, 2015 at 02:36 PM about the 1987 Ford F-250

Question type: General

After driving several miles, I pulled into my driveway and parked the truck. I was smelling something burning and when I got out of the truck, I had smoke coming from the left front wheen...no fire, just smoke. I poured a bucket of water on the wheel and the rest was all steam. The rim was hot to the touch. I haven't pulled the wheel off yet..waiting for it to cool a bit. Sounds like it might be calipher or something stuck.....any suggestions!
