OK so... as I said before, my alignment was all out of whack... so they re-aligned the car all back into spec and the car feels maybe 20% better, but the car STILL feels very sloshy... even going home, when I hit high speeds, I felt VERY unsure of the car... it feels almost as if the rims are rolling over the tire sidewall (obv that's not what's happening, but that's how it feels)... As a matter of fact, when at high speed making quick lane changes or taking freeway curves, the traction control light is blinking (this is at like 80 mph)... When I first turn to make the lane change, there is maybe 1/4 or 1/2 second delay for the car to make the move and a similar delay for the car to settle once I attempt to straighten the car out in the new lane.

I have limited experience with brand new snow tires... is there a break-in period where the tires may feel like this? Or maybe just the snow tires?
