Check and see if the backing plate is touching the rotor now.

A maybe: Are wheels OE sized for this? If depth of dishing isn't right caliper may be rubbing on wheel with new pads. You'd see evidence easily. Other if rotor not serviced or replaced is a rust ring on rotor where old pads didn't touch now is,
