Has anyone tried to degauss their car tires?
When they spin the steel belts inside the tire generate about 5mg at the wheel well in my car (depending on speed, more speed more field). I was thinking of getting a degausser, but I wonder if it will really work.
http://www.eiwellspring.org/ehs/DegaussTires.htm i would not hold a degausser in my hand ...
perhaps at the end of a 1 meter stick.
recommended however is 5 meter distance for sensitive people.
to test, one can use a ac-magnetic field meter in the cabin near the wheels when driving.
and then compare the reading with what is measured when parked while running the engine at the same speed ( rpm ).
the surplus is likely to come from the tires, unless external factors like high voltage power-lines are at play.

My main concern was how to use the thing, as you say.
I've been thinking of using a 1 meter pole, that's probably as long as I can make it.
I can get someone else to help me as well.
You can find degaussers on ebay, there are lots.
I found one that is over 2000 gauss that I'm considering.
I did measure with the car stopped and moving. I'm not sure it's worth degaussing. When stopped the level is around 1milligauss, when moving it's 5-10 milligaus. I haven't tried highway, but the faster they spin the stronger the field gets. I'll try it next time.
2000 gauss at what distance ?
It may sound dumb, but I did not find any suitable degaussers on ebay.
Actually of course only the front tire at the left side ( or the right side for those who drive on the wrong side of the road, like the british ) is really important.
One could take of a wheel and test it on a home-built spinning device ( perhaps with the motor and belt of an old washing-machine, while taking the fields from this motor into account ).
Then it would be more easy to handle a much longer pole as well and the spinning can have an even speed.
To my taste 5 to 10 milligauss ( when measured with a Gigahertz, the Trifield may give a higher reading ) near the wheel is a lot, but modern cars are mostly terrible anyway, it is not exceptional these days.
At the end what matters is the field-strength-levels one can tolerate, which is an individual affair.
The car is not too bad normally, it's .5 to 1mg on the driver side around the steering wheel. The passenger side is almost 0. I'm measuring with the ME3830B. I also have a ED88T but haven't tried it in the car yet. The ED88 has a much higher range(600mg max) and it seems to pick up a slightly bigger number when comparing with the ME. Not sure if it's just wrong or it just picks it up better.. It doesn't seem to matter how I hold it as much as the ME does.
The GigaHertz ME meter is likely more accurate.
I've two of them, they are self-calibrating and give the same readings.
These meters are directional, you actually have to add them up as follows : sum x sum = A x A + B x B + C x C , but i just take the highest value, to get a comparative idea of these fields is enough for normal purposes.
From my point of view even 100 nT is a lot.
It of course depends also on the frequencies involved and how these interact with one's own energies.
Why not simply swop the front tires ? It sounds like the right tire is all right and the left one is bit too wrong.
Sometimes tires are supposed to spin in one direction to get more grip, but who cares.
Also sear or spare wheels may be better than the one near the drivers seat.
But modern cars with computer controlled injection and the devil knows what kind of technocrazy shit are always a source of inconvenience, degaussing or changing tires will lead relatively to little improvement.
Not to speak of electrical and hybrid vehicles, so called progress means usually going further down the slope.
