stupid snow

well I am posting this just for the benifit of other ppl. I live in the snow belt in Erie Pa and we have gotten alot of the fluffy stuff this year. Anyway lately I have gotten a real bad vibration in the front end. It turns out that a 15x10 wheel can really get packed with a lot of snow. All I had to do was clean the wheels out to get them back in balance.

snow/mud/dirt/ice/ whatever can get caught in your wheels and cause vibrations. keep 'em clean!
