Silicon carbide wheels need to be run for a few minutes after you turn off the water supply to drain all the water out of them, if you don't then the water settles in the bottom and makes them out of balance and they can grenade on you causing serious harm.

If they are really out of round you can dress them with a dressing wheel that knocks off the high spots, you can get a dressing wheel at most parts stores that carry SC wheels.

Good luck............Tony
