    Tyre Grip spray

    Anyone ever used this stuff? Just happened to come across it and have a possible ice storm coming this weekend. Just curious...

    Never tried that, but my Dad used to swear that regular clorine bleach poured on the tire would do the same thing, I never tried it either but he claimed it worked. Probably not too good on the environment

    I am not sure how you use an aerosol can to spray the tread of a tire. The bottom is not available. On my car, the top 3/4 of the tire is close enough to the body that there isn't room for a spray can. Bottom line, I would need to jack up the car to apply - that isn't going to happen, especially in the winter snow.

    I am glad I no longer live up North, but a bucket of sand or salt or kitty litter or whatever looks like a better idea to me.

    I'd be very skeptical to spend the $$$ on something that doesn't make sense.

    I'd have as much confidence in these over that .....nothing much you can do but slow down when on ice, or carry more insurance and throw caution to the wind

    I'm no chemical engineer, but here's the msds

    Looks like a bunch of petroleum stuff for propellant, and some rosin, some kind of citrus stuff, and an emulsifier surfactant.

    Fun stuff. Some people claim it works on amazon and say they spray it on their shoes. But dang, that's one expensive can of stuff.
