Sounds normal too me, try putting the trans in park or in gear if a standard, then try to turn one of the tires,the other side should rotate in the opposite direction, or you can try a little more dangerous test, starting the engine and put it in gear, while idling in gear use a long bar and try to slow the turning tire by rubbing the tire on the tread, use care as it can grab it and throw it, just use slight pressure, when the tire starts to slow the other side should start turning.
