brakes

I have a 1981 280zx and has been sitting for a few years. I had the driver side rear brake was sticking but finally found the problem and fixed. Just wonder how hot do the wheels normally get after highway driving. I can put my hand on all the wheels and count to three but seems hot is this normal ?

Define "hot" with a number. Preferably in "degrees Fahrenheit. Anything over ~120*F is going to feel "really hot" to the touch... and on a 100*F day outside after a drive, yes, your wheels and brakes are going to radiate enough heat that it feels "hot".
