Hello everyone,

first timer here and first timer for few things as well :), first Land Rover, first time using a chains on any vehicle.
I have a 2020 LRDS, with about 2000 miles. We drove through mountains this weekend and had to use the low profile snow chains.

after taking chains off and driving another hour the car started acting up, almost like the tires are flat, very bumpy (not pulling) just bumpy when I go over 45 MPH. It’s about 9 -14F temperatures outside and we drove like 5 hours in that temp and full snow. Almost feel like it’s stuck in 4x4.

is it due to cold weather the tires got stiffer? Or there is any issue with the springs/coils being frozen up so it’s bumpy?

Tires get stiffer especially if using all season tires. But with snow on the ground it can make it seem as if you are driving on a bumpy road, lots of hard packed snow and clear road.

Ahh we are wondering about that too, we can see the road but as it’s getting cleared out but can’t understand the bumps! Just want to make sure there is no issues with shocks or 4x4 stuck we had that issue on our previous Lexus and we are about 3 hrs away from closest dealership

The snow will be like driving on pebbles as the plow can not remove it all sort of like driving on rumble strips.. You can go to your 4×4 screen to see what your power train is doing , if you are worried.
