Infuriating: Road Sand Throws off Wheel Balance

Wheel Balance Thrown Off?

I have an 04 XC70 that I bought back in October so this is my first winter with it. When I drive in the snow, somehow the snow gets sucked into the wheels and packs in there along with the sand and salt. I park in a heated garage so all the snow melts out leavinf the sand and salt to cake in the inside of the wheel. This of course throws the balance off requiring me to remove the wheels and clean out the sand every couple of storms. Anyone else have this issue? I have pics I’ll post up later.

Bonus! Volvo Facts

  • There’s a Volvo innovation in nearly every car on the road today. In 1976, we launched the Lambda sensor, which converts toxic engine fumes into less harmful gasses. Our cars are kind to the environment every step of the way. Every Volvo factory in Europe is powering by green electricity, and all Volvos are designed to be 85% recyclable and 95% recoverable.
