Hi Everyone:

If your state sprays calcium chloride on its roads in the winter, do safely make a thorough inspection of everything underneath your car.

A few years ago, my state switched to spraying calcium choride and I believe it has accelerated rust formation.

Seeing the degree of rust on the forward connections of the lower contol arms of my 04, I declared the car unsafe and told my wife not to drive it.

I replaced the arms.

Be safe.

The joys of greener de-icers, it is technically better for the environment, and works far better than your standard salt, but the Chloride is still there, which will eat away at unprotected metal very quickly.

yeah this stuff is a hassle, here in northwest indiana, they spray the junk on the road even if its not snowing 'just in case' i guess, and it gets all over my car and i cant really do anything about it till spring because if i wash it, it just gets messed up again in the next drive or even on the ride home.

black venom - im guessing you go to ball state (living in muncie) i go to purdue!

anyway, look for trucks that have big tanks usually and they're spraying lines of chemicals (like 4-5 lines)

i know it does better than the salt but i personally would rather drive smart rather than have my car jacked up from chems

is this chemical cheaper to use than salt? (can anyone answer that?) that could be another benefit if it does

I hate to say it, but during the winter washing for me when I was in a more northern climate had little to do with keeping the car looking good, it was about getting the junk off the paint and underbody as frequently as possible.

Unfortunately, it doesn't really matter what you feel since 99% of the other drivers on the road are complete morons. When I was driving through Indianapolis during the first major snow fall of the year there were 6 single car accidents on 65 within Indy alone. I fear to think what would happen in an environment where people aren't forced to know how to drive on snow effectively in the absence of salt.

I'll leave you with the result of two inches of snow and my neighbor who grew up in Georgia attempting to get her car up the driveway. After seeing this picture you'll understand why I'm all for salting the hell out of roads.

Agreed.

My brother and I bought the same wheel/tire combos at the same and place time 3 years ago, and they have roughly the same winter millage (give or take 500 miles). He maybe washed his car once every 2 months in the winter, and I wash mine at least once a week. He made fun of me cuz mine was always as dirty as his but The wheels prove my point.

His rims (Rust forming around all the edges and holes, and huge chunks of paint are missing on 2 of the other wheels):


My Rims:

We got an inch of snow this morning and I really wish they would use that crap up here in Michigan at least where i'm at. Hell they didn't even salt all the lanes. What a friggen mess the commute was. Heck, they don't even plow half of the time.

It snowed about 3 inches here last night, then today it got up to 45F melts it off. Since it was such a nice day I finished putting my pillar covers on and wash the car. Very Happy

In Michigan an inch of snow isn't even worth blinking an eye at. Laughing Unless freezing rain is involved I don't think they bother with non-main roads unless it gets over 3 inch's.

That kind of sucks. Didn't get many days off school as a youth? Laughing

Not many at all, we had more days off from power outages than snow days. The schools theory was if the busses still can move, school is open. Laughing
