Every time it snows the all-season wheels do fine but it's the snow that gets stuck in the 214s wheel well that makes me vibrate unbearably at highway speeds (only got to 60mph). Have to get every last chunk out. Anyone else?

You can see mine are filling up in the picture. Mine is parked in a heated garage so I haven't really noticed the issue. I had a Nissan Titan that had the same issue I carried a stick with a flat metal end to scrape the snow/ice out of the wheels because every time I was in fresh snow it would shake like mad on the highway.
