You're in Canada and they 'bulk' up for warmth late summer for the cold winters.

That's not easy by the way, you must be a great driver !

Either that or you've hit an anemic flock.

If you try keeping it under hundred may they won't be as flat. I never really measured how flat any certain car makes a bug.
