It's possible you have a warped caliper, when it heats up it goes out of round. This will cause the brake pads to wear uneven...

Sometimes when a caliper bolts missing, the brake pads sit funny. Either too tight or off check, Im guessing thats where it is. Orrrr. A bad wheel bearing? Food for thought...
