Front wheel lock up

2001 ML270, changed a tyre today (used the toy tyre for the first time EVER).
Driving away the front wheel seems to lock, I parked and started again and it was OK for 5 klms. Stopped to wash my hands and it happened again !. Stopped for 5 minutes and then drove for 85 klms (at 80kph) with no problems !!!

What happened ?

I believe the spare wheel on this model should come with shorter wheel bolts, if you put the standard bolts in they catch but you will know for sure when you take the bolts out again.
