Default TECH TIPS OF THE DAY

First I noticed my tires had severe wobbles to them !!!!
Thought they were off balance?????
Wrong they were soaked with water!!!
I popped them in the dryer with a load of allready dried laundry for 8 to 10 minutes at a time!!
Squeezing all the water out each time I dried them till they dried!!!
Why didnt I think of that before

Or you can just put a hole on the tread of your tire.

I hope when you wash your tires you aren't submerging them in a bucket. Even using a soaked brush will do that to you if your glue job blows. TECH TIP: Don't wash your tires with water. Just use a wire brush and then a damp cloth for the remaining dust.
