Q: Tires not rolling

asked by on

The back tires won't roll.

It is very possible the rear drum brakes are locked up. The rear wheels would need to be removed and the drums loosened up to restore rotation. You may want enlist the help of a mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, who will be able to safely lift the vehicle and diagnose the locked rear wheels issue.
