No get a rubber mallet and un bolt the bolts and give the wheel (not the tyre) a whack with the rubber mallet and the wheel should come off then bolt it all back up and try it then


p.s. dont use a metal or wooden mallot or hammer as the wheel will shatter

Definately an alignment issue. May even be something damaged. Need to find out as you may have a pre-existing condition that you can take back to where you purchsed this vehicle.

Locked rear wheels


you will have to try to move it. or you need to remove the wheels, brakes. if it has drums you can adjust them away from the shoes and it will spin free. if it has disc you may need to remove the calipers and then the pads. then remove the discs and clean them or replace them and the pads. go with an organic set of pads and they will not rust stuck again
