History: "new to me" car, purchased 2.5 weeks ago. No noticiable breaking issues with summer rims/tires. Just had new steel rims on car last week (minus sized to 15" with 195/55R15 snows). Today, (wet snow day), getting a occasional grinding/popping noise and rough on brake pedal when brakes are applied at extremely low speed. No consistency as to when it happens or whether on wet snow or pavement. Maybe -Small correlation to within first 5 mins of starting up. There is no ABS light on (either on first ignition lights, or with the pedal experience), so I don't know if the car has ABS or not as it is optional in the year/model. Wouldn't know how to check to see. Didn't say so in advert for vehicle. Is this braking normal? Part of traction assist? Or is something wrong re the new rims? Need to know whether normal or take it back to shop? Sory can't afford to donate more.
have the same problem?
