Ignorance Strikes Again!

well my dumb *** lost control while taking my friend to his home and i did a 180 into a huge snow pile and took out their mailbox...no body damage except for some marks that i need to get off the side maybe with some rubbign compound...everything was fine untill i got on the high way...when i was going over 50mph it started to shake...so i slowd down till it didnt shake as much..when i got to my house i looked in the wheel well of the tire the shaking was coming from (front drivers side) and everything appeard fine...nothing broke or outta whack but the breaks were smoking a bit and smelling awful....i dont know what wrong with it..i dont have time to look at it today cause i gotta get to work. but hopefully my tire is outta alignment or maybe my brakes got jarrd? something inexpensive to fix. but my luck im gonna need to replace the whole wheel assembly

Could be snow piled up in you're wheel. Had this happen on many occasions.

that is exactly what happend.....this morning the paint came off...i have two minor dents that are barely noticable....maybe from a 179 degree angle at high noon...but as far as the shaking it was the snow...on the highway this morning going 70 it ran like perfectly fine....thanks guys for responding. oh yeah i dont even have a 1/4" of tread on my front tires...maybe that had something to do with it too...as for the mail box i hear a snow plow cam after the fact and you cant even tell now...and i guess allot of people hate them too because they have had their mailbox burnd to the ground before...so how ever they are gonna deal with it...it wont be with me....kinda shady but im in the clear
