Doesn't matter what wheels you have(even steelies). If you go play in deep snow, there is a good chance snow will get in there.

I hate to post something that might actually be useful, but...

I have the same problem on my 05. I keep a bottle of cheap windshield washer fluid in the trunk along with a spray bottle head. Seems to break down the snow pretty quickly without hurting the wheels (which can happen if you try and scrape it out).

HTH,
Chris

I just scrape everything out with my jack handle. Then again my Blizzaks are on steelies so I'm exactly worried about scrapes.

The clear stuff you're breathing is air (oxygen for you science snobs). Which reminds me of something my baby brother asked... when people go blind, is it really a result of their vision improving to the point they can actually see air?

Don't yell at me for this ridiculous theory, its from the head of SixSigma.

... snow in the wheels.

I don't think the science snobs would sink so low to classify "air" as oxygen, as oxygen only makes up 21% of it. Nitrogen is in fact a much larger percentage than oxygen.

Air is slang for oxygen in most circles:

-When people are stuck in a confined space, they are worried about running out of air.
-When a guy passes out in the middle of a crowd, the doctor/nurse will yell at everyone, "Move away people, give him some air".

I can't beleive you threw nitrogen into the conversation. You must be one of those science dudes. Whats the secret crazy?

but the point is, you aren't breathing oxygen, you really are breathing air. The only reason I brought it up is because you said the science snobs would want to call it oxygen, but that's entirely not the case.

the process of inhaling and exhaling a gas into one's lungs. that seems a safe bet.

doesn't the transfer of oxygen from the lungs into the blood fall under the the umbrella of breathing?

I think you might have some frozen precipitation in the form of white or translucent hexagonal ice crystals stuck in your wheels.

You might want to check that out.

(ya know... cause we're all so scientific all of a sudden)

What you need is a rim job. That will keep everything clean and take care of those stubborn deposits. Only have the service performed by an expert. Otherwise you risk all kinds of harmful scraping.

^^^ Dictionary.com

I think what you want to define as the transfer of oxygen to the blood is respiration.

Also, I think the vibration may be a figment of your imagination brought on by a lack of oxygen. Check your lungs for snow packed in them, as that would reduce the ability to transfer oxygen into the blood stream.

Maybe wax the inside of your lungs with a couple coats to decrease the chance of snow sticking to them?

Don't throw out the snow, save it for blood flavored slushies.

Your blinker fluid is full of nitrogen causing the improper respiration efficiency required by the '06 WRX TR with 17" wheels. The best way to correct this is to pack snow into your muffler bearing and then let Raj pee on you.

That should do it.

Somehow I think that first post edit was a attempt to dodge becoming the next NESIC cliche'... personally I think it's too late
