When you removed the tire, did you loose the key that holds it to the axle to prevent the axle shaft from rotating inside the wheel hub?

No, I just went back out and looked at it again.
The driveshaft looks fine, the axle is turning, but the mower is not moving.
I guess I will go back out and take the tire completely off again and reset it.
Maybe I am misaligning something, somewhere ?
Thank You for your reply, I appreciate your help.

Check your owner's manual. I suspect a transmission lockout lever, which allows you to push the mower with the engine off.
On the LT160, it's on the back of the mower, between the seat and the hole where you would attach a trailer. Just look for a rod sticking out, and push it in.

If it moved fine before, and all you did was pull the wheel off and put it back on and now it won't move, then you lost the axle key. I see it happen all the time. The axle is keyed to the wheel. There is a slot in the axle, and a slot in the wheel, and a key that goes in it. If it falls out when you remove the wheel, the axle just turns in the wheel and the mower goes nowhere. I don't think quality is the issue here.

It was the key guys, I did not pay attention when I pulled the tire off.
I will most likely sell the mower even though it is brand new, I need a little bigger model,
