Hi there. Check all of the wheels with the vehicle jacked up and placed on jack stands. Turn the wheels by hand and see if there is any binding or sound from the brakes rubbing. If the brakes are rubbing, then either the combination valve or the brake controller on the brake system are sticking and not releasing. If there is no brake sound and the wheels spins harsh but not seized, then the wheel bearing may be out of grease and seizing up. If you need further assistance with your wheels not turning properly, then seek out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you.
