Q: Rear right tire is seizing up

Hello. If the tire is seizing up it is typically from the brakes. The drum brakes on this car will cause this if they are worn out, or if one of the return springs are broken. It can also occur if the brake backing plate has grooves worn in it. I would typically remove the rear drums to inspect it for these issues. If none are found then it may be a bad bearing. If you would like this taken care of by a professional, consider YourMechanic, as a certified mechanic can come to your home or office to find the issue.
