Well, we have had plenty of snow the last few days. While driving around to get a decent night shot of the FXT I noticed a noticeable shake to the FXT. Some ice had frozen to the rear drivers rim.

I took my heat gun and a plastic tube replacement tool (for my mountain bike) and removed the ice.

The heat gun gets enough heat directed just where you want it. The rim absorbs the heat and melts the ice from the bottom. You then just push it off.

I hope this helps those who play in the snow and get ice on the rims.

Cheers

Yeah I just saw recently was a heated scraper that plugs into your 12v plug, I think the heat gun might be too quick of a change that might end up cracking your window....
