After you check to see if the wheels are co-planar, I’d check the pulley on the motor to see if it has moved on the shaft. There is a small set screw holding it in place. It probably can’t move much, but it doesn’t take a lot of movement to create a contact point with the wheel. I’m guessing that the cast wheel isn’t exactly symetrical and that the moved pulley has found the largest spoke. If it hasn’t moved, and can’t be moved back, I’d try putting a extra washer between each mounting bolt on the motor, bringing it back away from the wheel.
