Detail: Purchased new tires last summer - felt the vibration, took the car in and they totally rebalanced the tires. Still vibrated a little but not bad. Put snow tires on and the vibration stopped until just this spring & then a slight vibration began again. Now have the new tires back on (both sets have their own rims - new rims on new tires) and the vibration is there. Not bad but noticable enough to bug me
Solution: IF the vibration is there with the non-snow tires and gone with the snow tires, the it would be safe to assume that the new (non-snow) tires are at fault. they would have an internal cord separation problem (NOT GOOD). now if the problem is still there with the snow tires now and it was not last winter, then get your car checked for either a steering linkage problem - too much wear from a steering knuckle, also get your drive shafts checked - front wheel drive vehicles have two, rear wheel drive has a main shaft from transmission to differential, and the ones with rear independent suspension and rear wheel drive has two more driveshafts from differential to wheels. It is not a major problem right now but it will get bigger so kill the problem before that. you are on the hunt.lol. hope this helps you. , I would guess incorrectly tightened or installed wheel bearing.
