Icon5 bad for my tires???

once the pond freezes i will probablly take the truck for a little joyride on the ice. this doesnt hurt the tires at all does it? the only thing may be the unsmooth ice parts but idk, what do you think.

I wouldn't think it'd hurt anything. Just keep off any sharp edges or anything like that. Wet spinning rubber cuts like butter.

Ya, I love the show but I don't know if it gets cold enough in ohio for that. I would not drive my truck on my pond here in Indiana.

How big is the pond? I wouldn't trust it this time of year though.. to early unless it has been really cold in ohio. I wouldn't put my truck on any ice though I don't care how damn thick it is. Not worth risking.

Your tires should be fine. Driving on ice is fun. Our Mn meet is taking place on a lake!

i don't recommend driving on a lake unless the ice is at least 13 inches thick. at our ice meet in january, the ice is around 16-18 inches thick.

wont have any problems driving on ice...except for traction lol.

I drive on ice all the time...hell,my street and highway are ice/slush 80% of the time in the winter anyways. They ice up because of the open fields and fast winds ripping across the road,freezing what snow/slush is on te surface and creates black ice on the bare asphalt.

Wait...you live in Ohio,you should already know this stuff! LOL
