I experienced the same symptoms after installing new pads. Jacking up the car there also was a bit of resistance when spinning the wheels.

My brother smacked me on the head and made me remove the new pads again - and instilled a small quantity of oil under the caliper piston rubber seals during a maneuver where I pressed the pistons back in the caliper and the pushed them out again with the brake pedal a few times.

After that the wheels spun uninhibited and the driving symptoms where gone.

Just a hunch...
