    I'm almost positive that mine run pretty warm too. Is there any burning smell coming from the hub area? I believe a certain amount of heat is acceptable, as there is a lot of moving parts that heat up situated close to your hubs(like your brakes!!!!!).

    Scoobydoo is right,if it is too hot to touch check your wheel bearings. Maybe your front brakes dragging also.
