really hot rims

My front rims are very hot to the touch after a drive and my rear rims are not. once and a while I will hear a grinding.
the car still moves on idle so I don't think the breaks are locked up. any ideas?

also noticed the rotor looks like something is gouging into it maybe?
the holes are fine that stuff is just road grime. and don't mind the black stuff that's just some plastic from the arm of my work safety glasses lol I poked the rotor

Sounds like you need new brake pafs

I was thinking to take the tire off and check to see what is causing the grinding and to sand down and rough parts on the rotor. is this rotor garbage now or can I save it.

please help

Judging by the wear line on the rotors and the grinding I would say they are done. Only way to know is to look

But both being stuck at once would be odd

Looks like your pads are metal on metal and causing the grinding noise. The material in the drilled holes are where the pads got hot and deposited some pad material in there. Unfortunately most shops can't machine drilled rotors so you're basically stuck buying new pads and rotors unless you can find a shop that has the correct machine to resurface drilled rotors. As far as the heat, that means your calipers are sticking. It could be anything from a seized caliper, bad slide pins that are either rusted in or not luricated properly, or even a bad master cylinder or proportioning valve.

yup pads are metal on metal only on the drivers side front! all other corners appear fine.
starting to make a pretty rough grinding noise on breaking and turning.
obviously the caliper is seized or sticking like mentioned.
I work every day until Saturday and don't get paid until Friday.
I guess ill need a caliper, rotor and pads for that corner. hope my wheel baring doesn't fry and I loose a wheel or something crazy money money money ..

You know how your headers/exhaust manifold/Engine are like a foot away from your front wheels? That could also be adding to the heat situation. However, your sunglasses melted when you touched them to your rotor... You need to do a brake job and make sure your lines are not kinked anywhere. You got too much friction going on there and a kinked brake line can cause the piston to stay compressed too long
