Kinda dangerous, you think at a point, the road is so saturated with salt, they wouldn't need to do anymore there....

Yup.... there are a # of accidents caused each year to to excess salt.... esp if the salt trucks "dump" a bit when they stop..... (they sometimes cause a small pile on the road... about the height of a big speed bump)

Bet your ABS goes off a lot for that stuff!

Put some 'flaps on when you get your wheels back on. Although sooner would be beneficial so the car isn't covered in salt like that, You can do the front ones by turning the wheels. And they'll do the most help as well.

Hrm... you can do the front by turning the wheels..... interesting... very interesting...

Where'd you get your Pontiac ones... I've been keeping my eyes open for them but I haven't seen them in CT yet. hehe

Actually the ABS hasn't been going off too bad... I find she'll spin the tires just a little bit every now and then.... esp if I turn the TC off. It'* like driving on powder.

Dealer, they are semi molded too, so they are stiff. I just tap them where it says pontiac with my toes and all the snow flies off.
