New tire? Correct size? Properly seated on the bead? Missing spacer when wheel was reassembled?

Tyre not new. Why is wheel hard to turn back and easier to turn forward. May have to take to mechanic.

If the tire is not a new install, has it always been rubbing on the outside?

If it feels like something internal is not right, then yes it should probably be looked at by a competent mechanic before the problem escalates.

I had to adjust my parking brake for the same issue, it was catching the rim but only in certain positions - I assumed the rim was warped.
