need advice on steering wheel problem

On Monday I drove home from classes just fine. On Tuesday we got tons of snow, so my car was in the driveway for 2 days. Thursday (2 days later) I was driving to school and noticed that my steering wheel shakes badly if I go faster than 45 mph on the freeway. If I go slow, I don't feel any abnormalities.

What could be the problem, and why did it occur so randomly? (I did not hit any holes on the rode)

Maybe there's a bunch of snow, ice, or mud stuck inside one or both front rims. That would throw the wheels way out of balance. Pretty common thing to happen on 4x4's when guys take them in the mud. Just a thought.

RE: need advice on steering wheel problem

I vote for ice and snow build uo on the inside of the rim. Go to a self car wash and hose out the inside of the rims.
