It that wheel is getting really hot and smells, chances are the brake caliper is stuck and not releasing the brakes. Lift the wheel from the ground and secure the vehicle safely. See if you can spin the wheel. If you can't remove the brake caliper and see if it will turn. If it does, chances are the caliper is bad. If you still can not turn the wheel with the caliper removed, check bearing.
