Ok I live in Indiana and it was snowy so i did some donuts and then some more and then some more. Now when I drive my car it shakes. Its not the road. The passenger headrest shakes and when my friends sit in the back they notice its. It wasn't like this 2 weeks ago. What need to be done. I hope i didn't bend a rim ( had a friend do this to his subaru). I think i need a balance or alignment. My friend who works at a shop will do the balance for free. What should i do?

If you were using your e-brake, you may have worn a flat spot on your rear tires. I did that to a set of tires once and it made noise and caused the car to vibrate.

It it was plenty snowy and/or icy, you shouldn't have worn a flat spot - I bet it's just a balance problem. My car shook horribly with my old tires that wouldn't balance correctly (once they got REALLY out of balance).

I was thinking the same thing, but only if there was very little snow/ice, and/or bare/wet spots.

Maybe you just have snow and or ice built up on the inside of you rims. This would cause the wheel to be way out of balance and shake like crazy.

Thats what happened to mine. Make sure there isnt any snow inside the wheels and if it still shakes get the wheels balanced.
