    Ahh the opening of the old Three Days of the Condor movie with Robert Redford.

    Also the Car Talk guys had a similar one with water in the tires, freezing in the morning causing the tire to be unbalanced giving a rough ride. However when the car owner brings the car in to be inspected no problem was found because the day got warmer and the ice melted and evenly coated the inside of the tire presrving the balance.
