You need to read the owner's manual, which you can find for free online, and follow the instructions for installing the front wheel. There's a procedure for it to preclude fork binding.

The manual gives a procedure on how to install the front wheel to prevent binding. Did you install it exactly how the manual said? Before you torqued the pinch bolts, did you compress the fork to center the fork legs?

your photo makes me think you're missing a spacer or haven't torqued the axle enough

 

what wheels?

Check to make sure there's a sleeve inside the hub between the two inner bearing races.  If that's missing, it'll apply a side load to the bearings which could stop the wheel from rotating.
