Default New front tire now stiff brakes.....

Hello Vic riders. I have a 2011 8 ball and just had a new front tire put on over the weekend. After picking it back up I realized the front brakes seem very stiff. Also I think I heard the front brakes rubing when the brake is not in use and rolling. Is this normal?

Pull caliper and stick a fat screwdriver between the pads turn side ways. That will push the pistons back in. If they go back in easy that would mean there working.
Now put caliper back on bike pump lever several times so pads will touch rotors.
Now see what you come up with
When you have caliper off take a straight and check to see if rotor is flat
