Why is my car shaking after a snow storm?  We hear this question after every snowstorm.

It’s the day after a snow storm, you dig your car out and you’re off to work only to find your car shaking.  Don’t panic, this is fairly normal.

This usually occurs when there’s a build up of snow and ice on the tires causing them to be unbalanced.  This shaking can feel anywhere from  a minor steering wheel shake to feeling like the wheels are going to fall off the car.

Once the snow and ice melt or fall off from the tires, your car should drive normally again.  However, if the problem persists, you should call our Service Team to determine if there is an underlying problem.

Stay warm and drive safe!
