Take the wheel off the bike. take the outer two nuts & washers off. You will then have another set of nuts. You should only beable to get eathier a 1/2 or 9/16 wrench on the inner nuts. Then tighten those nuts. Not too tight, just snug. Replace the wheel on the bike, replace the washers & nuts and tighten those tight.
You should beable to pedal.
You did'nt say if this is a single speed, 3sp, 10sp or 15sp. If you have additional gears, then you may have to reallign the cam for shifting.

I have a hyper pro model bmx bike and My back rim tightens up when I start to pedal

Do you mean that the back wheel becomes hard to roll when you start to pedal? And is this tightening up coming from the center of the wheel (bearings, hub, axle), and not from the rim or tire rubbing on something like the brakes or the bike frame? I am guessing a lot here from your breif description of the problem, but if I have that right you will have to remove the rear wheel and partially disassemble the hub. The locknuts that should constrain the space taken up by the bearings and the mechanism that allows you to pedal or coast (assuming this is not a fixed-gear bike) are either loose or adjusted too tight. It is also possible that the coaster mechanism has another problem. Good luck!

The back tire rubs against the frame only when I pedal. The tire wobbles a little bit while coasting, but appears to pull over to the frame while pedaling. Huffy Stonemountain 2 - 18 speed bicycle.

Either the wheel is mounted wrong, moving at the axle or the wheel is not straight true and strong (spoke tension issues). Look at it. Try to wiggle the wheel with your hand.

Use search engines for "how to" questions.

Son's can pedal 12" bike

Yes, something isn't turning freely. It's either the front wheel, the back wheel, or the pedals and chain. Lift the bike off the ground and turn the front wheel by hand. If it doesn't turn very freely, it could be the hand-brake is dragging or the hub bearing is too tight. Try the back wheel in both directions. It should move freely in the forward direction. When rolling it backwards it is normal for the pedals to move too if this bike has a coaster brake (that is the kind of brake that is applied by pushing the pedals backwards.) It the back wheel moves forward freely, but backwards is a problem, then try the pedals by hand with the rear wheel off the ground. If this doesn't turn freely, the pedal crank bearing (a.k.a. bottom bracket) is too tight. Once you have identified the problem take it back to where you got it. It should be easy to fix, or they should replace it.

Does your bike have a derailuer? (gears) If so, check that the chain is running though it correctly. Also check that your wheel is aligned correctly, you can check this by simply lifting the rear wheel off the ground and spinning it. If the wheel rubs on your frame, then simply loosening the bolts and tightening them up when the wheel is straight should fix the problem.

The pedal hits the tire whilst turning. We just got the bikes and put them together but when you ride and try to turn, the pedal hits the front tire and causes the bike to stop abruptly.

The pedal should not be able to reach the front tire. Sometimes one gets their toes to overlap the front wheel on a racing bike but that's because they have intentionally short wheel base and a steep for angle. Which way is the fork on your bike pointing? It should be angled or curved forward.

Look at the bike icon on this posting for an example.

16" Girls Mongoose Pizazz Problem!!!

some bikes are like that. The rear wheel only spins with the pedals. Try pedaling backwards and see if the wheel goes back. If it does then that is normal.
