This is the reason I went with high performance all seasons on my Zed......I don't want to have to worry about wet weather when it's still cold out and I'm not going to be auto-xing it (although I'd love to!)

That sucks. I need to have one of my wheels looked at. Hit a pot hole over the winter and think it might be bent. Its got a decent junk on the edge knocked out
