What brand wheels? Could the wheel bolts be hitting the rotors? Jack each corner and see if the wheels spin freely.

Beat me to it!

stephen, tires I took off were stock porsche wheels, set I put on are Victor Zen wheels. Bought them from the original owner. I'll jack up the rear and see if the wheel turns freely. Since thats all that changed maybe that it. Ill let you know in a couple minutes.

Yep, longer bolts w/o the spacers will cause the problem. Be glad [hope] you didn't damage the parking brake in rear.

If you need std size wheel bolts, PM me as I have 2 sets avail w/ or w/o wheel locks and can priority ship them from PA to you tomorrow AM.
