Spyder Replaced Belt, Now Wheel Spins?

It's the spyder 4g64 engine FWD, manual. I replaced the alternator belt, but when I start it up, the driver side wheel spins. It is not in gear when it does this. I still have the driver side wheel off incase I need to adjust it. Is it spinning because the belt is too tight/loose? It has about a half inch give. Or is it because I just because I don't have the wheel on?
