Agreed, just in general because I hit my garage two days ago. I felt like such an idiot.

Out of curiosity - now when I go ~60mph or so, my car starts vibrating a lot more than normal. Any of you guys think it would be because the alignment screwed up when I hit the curb, or is it normal for say, All-seasons to do this in 35 degree weather...And the car doesn't pull to either side, or it doesn't seem like that anyways. I'll try again later for that

And don't laugh at me for going 60, its only at the bottom of hills

More likely a wheel balance issue.

No ice or snow or mud or anything. Right now, I'm guessing wheel rebalance or alignment can solve it, hopefully no real damage.

hooray for free rebalancing because my parents got the tires at BJ's (almost makes up for the fact that they cost like 70-80 each...for 14" wheels).

If its been 4k miles, should I balance and rotate, or just rebalance?

I've hit a curb twice, both because I reacted slow. I've never done damage to a car or with a car because of weather. I've never gotten stuck and had to have assistance moving my car. I tend to be not parallel to the lines of the road about 40% of the time, straight or curves (when I am is usually when there's traffic...I'm not that dumb). I wouldn't drive anything but RWD manual in low-traction conditions (well, any conditions). I go out for an average of 2-3 hours every night it snows nicely in addition to regular driving. usually about 1/4 tank.
