Extremely Hot Wheel Lug Nuts

My driver side wheel lugs get extremely hot after a short amount of driving. THe passenger side is not nearly as hot. Had the caliper checked and all was good. Could it be the caliper pins needing
cleaning and relube. These are aftermarket pads and rotors, but if that was the problem, woulldn't both sides get extremely hot? Had new rotors put on cuz the excess heat warped the rotors.

How was that determined?

The pads AND the pins ALL need to be floating freely. If the pads are incorrectly-sized and are tight on their bracket, you can get symptoms similar to a sticking caliper.
If all is indeed free, then the piston has rust spots and is sticking in its bore.

Will check the pad and pin mobility. Thanks! If the pads are tight, can the end be ground down slightly for a better fit...of course how much is too much?

do not even think about doing this. if the pads don't fit, they're either cheapo aftermarket crap, or you have rust that needs to be cleaned off properly when you service the calipers.
the best pads for an accord [for all but extreme use] are genuine honda pads. and at only $43 online, the same price as most aftermarket crap, you're not saving any money by not using them. they even come with the correct shims and correct grease too!

something was wrong with that diagnosis. brakes turn speed into heat. if one is hot and the other not, either one brake is stuck on, or the other is stuck off. either way, you need to get this sorted out with proper caliper maintenance. you can buy genuine honda seal rubbers for ~$30 for a set and rebuild the calipers yourself if you know what you're doing. for this age vehicle, it's a great safety investment and should be considered anyway. dig about on tegger.com for how-to's.

dude, you really need to find a competent mechanic that knows what they're doing. there's no way they should have wasted your money on new rotors if they didn't fix the cause in the first place.
have you considered doing a basic mechanics course at your local community college? if you run a clunker, it's a great investment in not getting ripped off by incompetent "economy" mechanics. you don't have to do the whole car - just basic maintenance or brake technician should do it.
