Steel Vengeance "accident"?

Last time a wheel came off a ride at Cedar Point was when the tire came off of Dragster, hence no more tires on Dragster.

Unfortunately, you need to have brake run wheels.

I don't think so. It all depends on the design. Many coasters don't have drive tires on their brake runs and instead just use gravity to allow the train to roll forward when released.

Any sort of re-profile of the end of the ride would be a last resort solution since it would certainly be the most expensive option. It does certainly seem like the 2 block brakes behind the station have been a problem all year though.
