You still didn't answer my question about which wheels but you might want to look for a pinched metal line or internally damaged rubber line.

It started with the front left tyre, but now it seems like all the tyres are binding.

That could be contaminated brake fluid. That is a BIG problem. You would have to replace every brake component that has rubber in it which is basically everything.
