Brakes stuck on, help

I've just fitted a set of wheels to my van and now the brakes are stuck on with no idea why.
I didn't lift the full vehicle of the ground hand brake is loose even un clipped the compensator at the rear see if that helped, still nothing thou.

Any one give any advice about this.

I had the lining come off the shoes inside the rear discs once. That caused one of the rears to seize.

Ad.

Cheers Ad but it's all four wheels it seems.

I thought hand brake or compensator at first so I checked front drivers side but it was locked up also.

It's left me stuck.

Did you get the right offset? I've heard the wrong offset can cause certain models/ wheels to not clear calipers, so maybe the wheels are impeding the movement of the calipers.

There seems to be enough clearance all round, I shall double check this in the morning now thou as it was tight when I got round to torquing them up.

Are your studs too long and have gone all the way through the hub to the other side and stopping the wheel turning that way?

After about 15 years of changing wheels it was a silly mistake but once I sat back and thought about it, this was exactly what it was.

Felt rather daft if am honest, now need to figure out which length I need.
