Your lug bolts are too long and hitting the parking brake. Replace with the correct size and remember to keep five of the originals in the trunk as your spare won`t fit with the replacements you buy.

You sure you have the right size wheel and wheel bolts.....incorrect size wheel will get to close to the brake caliper and incorrect bolt (too long)will damaged your parking brakes.

Lug nuts.

You may have used the over-sized. Do not attempt to force the car to move lest it creates more damage than ever imagined.
