I know I'm slow sometimes, but why slicks in winter? Doesn't make sense to me.

Very good question. I am not driving around on them, just checking if some of my stock rims are causing a problem with a wa wa wa wa im getting between 20-45mph.

Ok story...

I was driving like an idiot on my all seasons...spun out...and hit a curb pretty hard on the front right. Rim was rashed bad and turns out is bent. After the curbing I have this wa wa wa wa that is pretty noticable at medium speeds. First thing I think is that the tires are flat spotted and the bent rim is not helping. So I put on my slicks I use for autox only to see if the problem would go away. Well...it didnt. Turns out my wheel bearings on the curbed rim are flat spotted and need to be replaced.

Gunmetal Rota Torques...only 700 shipped! I use these at the track only, any curb jobs or harsh potholes have been known to bend/crack these rims. They are not forged, but are cheap and lightweight. Ive probably put 50 autox runs on them.
