Did you know driving at higher speeds after a snowstorm can cause for car shaking? For most, this can be very alarming if you don’t know why this is happening. If you find yourself in this situation, before calling your trusty auto repair shop, check your tires.
Many have reported shaking cars when driving on the highway after a heavy snow fall. The issue is the snow build up in the wheels. The excess of snow can cause the tires to become unbalanced which is why the car shakes. The shaking can range from feel incredibly minor to feeling like your wheels could fall off at any moment.
Eventually the snow could melt off from temps rising, but it isn’t a good idea to wait. Driving on snow packed, unbalanced tires could wear down your vehicle’s suspension, or certain components of your steering. The best way to prevent this is to simply remove the snow and ice from the wheels and wheel well. If the snow is light enough, it will be removed during a routine car wash, but if the snow is heavier, you may need to remove it by hand.
If you have cleared the tires from all snow and are still feeling shaking or vibration, then it is time to give Auto Works a call. Schedule your appointment today.
