Tires and Wheels problem
1988 Ford Bronco V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic

My 88 Bronco has a lot of smoke coming from the rear tires/rims after I drive it. It also is sizziling hot. For some reason I smell a gassy smell too. I would like to leave a donation, but I will wait to see if I am satisfied with this site and how it operates, I am skeptikal about putting money on the web even though I am told I will be refunded, I would like to be sure I am doing the right thing.
Do you

Does the smoke have an odor or color? Like hot brakes?

What is hot? The drums? Rims? Axle?

You ever jacked up the vehicle and tryed turning the wheels, if they require a decent amount of force to get them to move then I would suspect the brakes are locking up. But just because they are free to turn when vehicle is jacked up dont mean they arnt locking up later.

Get back to me.
