I've heard that if you have tires with bad traction, you pour clorox on the tires (which softens the rubber compound) and you get a lot more traction in the snow.. True or rubber legend?

they use it at the drag strip, but it only works on the outter layer, so it will wear off really quick man...

Having your tires sipped will work longer...

Use VHT Track Bite. It softens tire compounds.
Either pour it on the ground in front of ur tires and do burnout, or paint it on the tire w/brush and let it soak in. Either way, the shit works.

Smells alittle FRUITY, as well. :lol:

Don't have tires siped unless they came siped from the tire manufacturer.

I just finished swapping on the snow tires on the 240 and the Civic and it's snowing now. :) At least I didn't put them on early - that would suck.
