 Hi Davrin,
I have read that there are areas around the earth where trees grow at an angle and in Death Valley rocks move across the sand at night of there on evolution. I guessed that pockets of greater and lesser magnetism below the crust are responsible but I don’t know. So far as I do know, the center of mass and the center of gravity has to be the same. I do not think the rotation of a wheel makes any difference to that condition. I would proceed in believing this and I don’t think you will find any information to the contrary—anywhere.
Maybe this helps.
Glenn H.,
