You know it's pretty sad when your mom laughs when you buy a RWD Mustang for IL winters, and you brush it off. BUT, then you get stuck on a 2 in. flat piece of ice in front of her house and she says "I told you so" UGHHH. Whatever. She's still pretty.........in the summertime. Lol!

Haha I've been waiting for it to snow here so I could post the same kind of picture.

I got stuck in my old jobs parking lot last year because of ice.

300 lbs in the trunk (sand) and all season tires ususally do the trick...or some winter tires if you can swing it...like blizzacks (not sure if i came close to spelling that right)

Get an old coffee can with a lid.

Have a fire. Let it burn out. Take the ash. Put it in the can and store it in your trunk. MAKE SURE IT'S SEALED GOOD
When you get stuck on ice, take that ash and put it under your back tire(don't need ALOT. Just enough to discolor the snow/ice. Make a path a few feet and it will walk your car out like your tires have Velcro.
I got stuck in a driveway on a hill in about 6" of snow. Homeowner came out with some ash from his wood burner. He spread it behind my rear wheels and it walked me right out the driveway like it was dry pavement. And he gave me another can to keep.

Try it. Cheaper than salt. And won't tear your car or driveway up

Works like a charm. Ash from wood tho. Not from old bills and newspapers lol.
After the guy helped me, I carried ash in my trunk in the winter for the next 7 years till i moved back home to Louisiana (I lived in northeast Ohio. Just north of Youngstown, Oh. So we got pounded with snow)

I had the stock summer Pirellis and couldn't get off ice in my driveway. I bought some toyo Garrick tires and I can pretty much go anyway a truck can unless its like a foot of snow. A huge difference I have never slipped on ice yet and I plow threw snow like a beast.
