Do you still have the original wheels? You should be able to see some mechanism through which the axle was "keyed" to the wheels so when the axle turns, the wheels turn with it. The new wheels don't appear to have such a mechanism. Take one new wheel off and compare it carefully to one of the old wheels. You should be able to spot the difference.
it looks to me the only special tool needed would be
spring ring pliers.
just removing nuts or blots on the left side and spring clips on both slide axle out pull wheel over bearing then reverse put together
The most common cause of this is the drive belt is worn or broken. Sometimes the drive cable stretches (from the handle to the trans) To check the belts and tension you remove the cover (usually plastic) in the middle of the snow thrower to look at the belts. Your operator's manual will show you how to remove the cover and check/change the belts. If you don't have a copy you can get the manual through managemyhome.com You will need the model number off the snowblower. It is usually located on the bottom right hand corner of the frame (from the handle side) The model number looks like 247.123456. The belt closest to the engine drives the transmission. With the engine not running, have someone depress the drive lever and check the belt. You should only be able to depress the long side 1/2 inch or less. More than that the belt has stretched and needs to be replaced. On some older blowers you can adjust the tension pulley, but most made in the last 15 years, you can't. The belt may be frayed on the edges or glazed causing it to slip (it is shiny on the sides of the belt) It may be torn and broke completely. You can get parts for your Craftsman and most MTD made models through searspartsdirect.com or jackssmallengines.com. If you are unfamiliar with repairing machines you can get your MTD snow blower repaired by taking it to your local Sears. They will have a technician troubleshoot and repair the unit. Feel free to ask any other questions. I know Snow Blowers. Please remember to rate this answer!
The wheels usually have a rubber cover in the center, remove that and there is an e-clip that can be removed with a flat blade screw driver, or pliers. The axle beam, spindles and wheels can all be serviced separately.
there should be a cotter pin or pin holding a large washer once you have removed these then you have to get the wheel to slide off the axle it has a keyway on it.i have taken a hammer and hit one side of the tire on the backside then turn the tire half way round and hit the tire from the backside and walk the wheel off the axle.if the axle is rusty shoot wd-40 around the axle and wheel .the wheel should slide back on as you line up the keyway when putting them back on.if your going after the chain the tines will have to come off too and the chain box split
You need to remove the black rubber cap from the center of the wheel. Remove the "C" clip from the axle and the wheel should come off. The rear tires will have a square key in it. Do not loose the key.
A lot of the larger band saws, and I don't know about your particular model, has an ajustment on the bottom wheel that tilts the wheel in order to track the blade. It is right at the axle and tilts it from there.
If the back guide is a roller bearing I woud think you would want to roll all of the time. If a solid bearing block natually a small space where it
will not hit is enough.
