Car's both front wheels are hotter than the rear wheels?
Both of the front wheels have similar temperatures. Could this be due to bad caliper or are front wheels suppose to be hotter than the rear wheels?

To add to other answers, assuming you have front wheel drive that would run things a bit warmer.

Check tier pressure, if to low tiers will run hot. This is one of the reason you rotate your tiers. The front end does all the steering which is hard on the tiers and they do run a little hotter. Some trucking companies put a small mixture of water and antifreeze in their front tiers to reduce this..

If you have not been braking a lot you can have brake drag in the front or the front tire pressure is too low. Either one has to be fixed. If you have been braking a lot it is normal.

The front brakes do most of the braking and should be hotter than the rears.Source(s): Mitsubishi Master Tech

Probably caused by friction from steering and braking that the front wheels and tires are undergoing.. more than the rear wheels and tires..

If both front wheels are about the same temperature there's not a lot to worry about.

Not necessarily a problem if you've just stopped. The front brakes do most of the work when you brake, thus get hotter and the heat can be transferred to the wheels.

bad alignment will cause the tires to warm up. so will low tire pressure. so will someone that rides the brakes too much!

Usually it is so because the disc brakes on the front are lightly rubbing the rotor(they are that close) so it is heat generated from the rubbing action(like rubbing the palms of your hands together to make them warm) The friction produces heat. The front wheels are the first to activate when you apply the brakes while moving forward...and apply the brakes.
