burning smell

Noticed a slight smell of burning rubber coming from drivers side rear today (not been driving hard). The tyre was not hot but the wheel felt hotter than the passenger side rear. I Know the exhaust back box is on the drivers side but I havent noticed this much heat before. Anyone else experienced this before or any ideas what it could be? Im running standard 7 hole alloys, brake pads and discs (pads and discs fine, tyre also wearing evenly)

Hmmm thats weird! I was going to say check the rear pads to uneven wear as its really common to get a stuck caliper.
