Question F-150 4x4 HUBS TOO HOT?

Just re-packed front wheel bearings & installed new brake pads on my 1991 F-150 4X4. After driving about 3 miles at 50MPH the hubs are too hot to comfortably hold a hand on. I am wondering if maybe I tightened the wheel bearing too much. After tightening I back off 1/4 turn.

Any thoughts?
