Sounds like your wheel is on its last legs To get a little more life from it I'd first try one of those aluminum oxide dressing sticks to see if removing glazed on glass makes it perform better. If that doesn't work, I'd try running the wheel in the opposite direction. Either of these should give you a few months of marginally better grinding before you fling the thing into the dumpster.

Olympic Color Rods has some really excellent heavy duty diamond wheels. I use a 60 and 240 and they're beasts. They need some wearing in (as do all) but after a few feet of breakin they work great.
