If it didn't do it before the starter was replaced, remove the starter and see if you can turn the engine with a socket and break over bar on the large bolt that holds the vibration damper on, if it turns ok then something is wrong with the starter alignment and bound up the flywheel. That's about the only thing that can cause the wheels to slide.
