Sometimes I get a shudder when braking at slow speed in wet/snowy weather. When it happens it is usually coming to complete stop immediately before the car stops. Not frequent, happened only twise, first time after car was sitting in the rain and the second time after I parked in in deep snow.
My rims are 5 spoke alloys, very open so snow/water gets there easily.

Is that a normal characteric of wet brakes? I don't think I had that on any of my cars before, but most of them had steel wheels.

It's normal for like the first few braking events after being exposed to rain or snow. That feeling you're noticing is the brakes pushing the water off (and braking you of course).
