   Try driving the car 1/2 mile or so, then stop and feel the wheels & brakes.  
A dragging brake will warm the wheel.
   A friend had a Mercedes that acted similarly.  Problem was a brake hose gone 
bad internally.  A bit of the inner lining peeled, would allow the brake to 
operate but then would act as a check valve and not release the fluid pressure. 
 The drag would warm the brake drums & cylinders, expand the fluid, and the 
wheel would really stick.
