How free should the tires spin when off the ground?

I was checking the ball joints today and when I had the driver's side tire off the ground I gave the tire a shove and noticed it only turned about 1/4 of a turn and I could hear what I think is the brake pads dragging slightly on the rotor. Checked the pass. side and it spun the same distance with the same resistance and I also heard the same sound of the brake pads dragging. I have replaced the pads, rotors and calipers on both sides about 4 months ago. Do the wheels sound like they are dragging a little too much or have too much resistance in spinning?

Sounds like it isn't spinning far enough bud, you replace/repack your bearings when the hub was off to do your rotors

Yep, repacked them since they were only a year old...I wonder if I got the spindle nut too tight. Is that even possible? My torque wrench went missing when I was installing the new rotors.
