Hello I have 2007 CTS on 22 inch spinners I have had them for a few years now an one of them doesnt spin at all anymore. So I was wondering if its a way to make all of them stop spinning so they just float instead of spin. I was thinking about adding some wheel weights to one piece of each spinner to weigh it down so it doesnt spin. Does anyone have any suggetions or help on this

Drive it into a lake. It might float for a while.

I suspect you'd have to remove the bearings and weld them solid, or pack a whole bunch of sand in there (essentially what happened to your stuck wheel, got full of dirt).

Does the OP just want to stop them from spinning or convert them to floaters?

Floaters like in a septic tank?

Either way, Ted Kennedy would have been better off and so would Mary Jo Kopechne!

Good point, I don't know how you would do that.

Aren't floaters just spinners that don't spin?

I believe floaters are wheels that spin, but while driving, remain in one position, as they spin, but do not spin correctly. I presume this simply because from what I gather, they are not spinning OR staying still, because he says it does not SPIN and if he wanted stationary wheels, he would just buy a new set or weld these bastards shut. I do not see why he does not do the obvious and find out how to fix the "stuck" one.

Actually, ever heard of Valsella? They make a device that you leave your car parked on for about an hour and activate it and it should very much fix all your spinner problems.

Maybe Mary Jo, but the whole thing didn't seem to bother or affect Teddy very much.

I want to know how he got that panty hose back on her under water.
