Re: hot tyre / brake - causing pulling / judder...

A sticking caliper could certainly cause your problem once the heat builds up enough.

The heat might also increase the tyre pressure so check it again.

Sounds like a full caliper strip down is needed in the first instance. The disc might be warped or cracked now so new pads/discs might be needed.

If the brake fluid also supplies the clutch, I wouldn't have thought that the fluid already in the clutch line would be affected by the heat.
At that mileage it could just be wear and tear on the clutch.
Currently in lancs dave's garage:
Scenic 1.4ish 2002. Clio 1.2 2002. Thunderbird 885 1995, Suzuki Gsx600f 1989. Fazer 600 2002. Specialist cement mixer for proffessionals only, not yer average forum numpty. Your car is probably worth more than all that lot put together.
