Not sure exactly what you mean. The van was in park, parked where my wife left it. I left it in park while I jacked it up and removed the flat tire. I ran to Walmart in a different vehicle to buy a tire and have it mounted on the original rim. After I got back and put the new tire on, I tried to drive off and the wheel was locked. The driver side wheel has been and still is operating and trying to drag the van.
I just took the tire off and there is a fresh groove worn on the inside of the rim and a matching worn spot on the caliper. The rim turned until the caliper caught on an open spot on the rim and locked up. Could it be that walmart mixed up the rim? Or is it more likely that something broke and it's misaligned somehow?
By the way, First time on here. Thanks a million! I'm mechanically inclined but an extremely novice auto mechanic.
