    The car has little scrapers already, I'm thinking of extending them or making new larger ones that keep the wheels free of crap. But if the mini spare was ever needed then we'd have a problem.

    Do you think the rear disc simulators would help prevent this? Just inquiring.


    Nevermind, probably not.

    A heated garage is the most ideal solution!

    lol that is a lot of snow though. Its in the springs and everything.

    I wonder if spraying pam on the wheels might help at all. Or zip tie some rubber spatulas to the trailing axle aimed at the wheels

    There is no prevention I know of.
    Best you can do is wash it often.


    Will weld for beer.
