more than likely it's old greasy gunk gumming up the brake shoes.I actually did tighten them up, just enough that they didn't stop the wheel from spinning, but kept it from wobbling. Besides, this is a used wheel off a freebie department store parts bike that looked like it had sat outside for a while. Only reason the front wheel spins as well as it does is because I put fresh grease and bearings in. Had to, since the original axle was too large to fit inside the fork.
