Good tip Brett. I guess I"ve always had my wheels off twice a year to do the
summer/winter thing and never had a problem with them sticking. Speaking of
which, I just switched to the summer tires - *big* difference in the way the
cars feels with 205/65/15 snows and 225/50/16 summers.

Whenever I've used the Audi jack, I put a piece of 2 x 6 under it - seems to
keep it from slipping.
