    Here are some possibilities : If equiped, make sure 4x4 is not engaged even if there is no indicator lights showing it is! Sounds like 4x4 buck or binding up on dry pavement.
    Shift it in and then out of four wheel drive, IF equiped, some are not! IF not 4x4 then check to see if rear differential may need limited slip additive. Also front hub bearings may be roughed up.
