As mentioned above, these would be very uncomfortable in the shower due to the solid rubber cleats.

And something that works on snow with the weight of a car shouldn't be assumed to be as effective in a wet shower with human body weight (save the mother in law jokes).

What did you use on that floor to get the shine?
That's the first thing I noticed when Bigfoot added those pictures. Sparkling clean floor. I think Bigfoot used Pine-Sol. Stick Out Tongue

Do I need 2 if I have awd?
The come in a pair, for use on both sides of an axle, so good luck finding just one. I've never gotten stuck in the 7 winters of I've driven a Subaru with AWD. I did have some trouble with various FWD cars a few times, and even once with a legit trail-prepped Isuzu Trooper. Even a good AWD system is no guarantee - if all four wheels are on ice or in deep, loose snow, you still won't have enough traction to move easily.

I haven't tried these, but any off-roader can tell you that good traction boards are great tools to have, and they will help you get out of some situations that would otherwise require a tow, a tug, or a push. I'd say if you get into a pickle where you need one, you'll be happy to throw down two and get unstuck on the first try.

People need to understand that traction is about tires, not AWD/FWD/RWD. Doesn't matter if you have a Subaru or Civic, if your tires don't have traction, you're not going anywhere.
These traction mats will help when you're in a bit of a rut (physically, not emotionally) and need to get going. Most vehicles will be best served with a pair of these rather than just one (not sure how they're sold). If you have traction with one wheel, the power will go to the wheel that is slipping.

If you don't know what a differential is or how it works, watch this highly-enjoyable old-timey video explaining it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yYAw79386WI

you can urinate on the tires.

Or am I getting that mixed up with a jelly fish sting.

Can you just cut sections of your old tires and use those as traction mats?

Hmm... My car is equipped with an electronic rear differential and a lockable center differential with system-adjusted differential locking ratios (up to 65% of torque directed to either axle).

It has a monocoque chassis with MacPherson strut front suspension and double wishbone rear suspension. The suspension, however, includes air springs with electronically-operated valves in pneumatic lines to link adjacent air springs. In the event that a wheel on one side of the vehicle is raised when driving off-road, the pneumatic valves open to force the adjacent wheel downwards, thereby simulating the action of a live axle.

With all that crap, is it likely that I'll need two? Trying to save weight wherever practicable
Sir this is a Wendys

These aren't for the shower. They're sex traction mats. You use these with caterpillar boots. Together they create a Lego like effect ensuring you don't lose ground while attempting forward momentum.
