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.
