Those don't count for me. I like the ocean. I like the west coast, north of the Klamath River Delta more than the east or the gulf though. But Indiana is where my family is these days. I do plan on heading up to Dunes one of these days though.

As for my Jeep, I rotated the tires the other day and now I have DW at 50mph...not 45 and not 55, just at 50. I'm thinking it's a tire balance issue.

Well , picky , picky ...

You might try popping the bead on those front tires and tossing a bottle of BBs in each one . Less the bottles and caps , of course .

Yeah, that's what I have been considering doing. Is there an easy way to pop the bead without going to a tire shop?

I think he means the valve stem core has to be removed .

I used a BFH and a piece of 2x4 ( rounds corners/edges ) .

But , if you have a vacuum pump , it would be a hot knife through melted butter easy .

I guess I could have just googled it. I'll have to enlist my Wife's KJ for assistance.
