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.

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