can this be used as a cushion for your knees when working on your car?
No they're not soft. It would be slightly better than having your knees on the concrete since they wont get scratched up, but due to the cleats it might even be more uncomfortable.

Do I need 2 if I have awd?
I have a 4WD pickup with M/Ts and I've gotten stuck! Something similar to this saved me, it doesn't matter what kind of set up you have, if you don't have traction you're not going anywhere and this is what these mats provide.

What about use in sand or mud?
I like carpet in sand. (Just roll up old house carpet) When I drove a 2wd truck I'd throw a couple 4-6 ft long rolls in the bed whenever we went camping. I would always have a 3 footer under the seat.
Works great. I have used carpet in mud and it works well too. I put some branches down first to add stability then the carpet. Don't spin tho, slow and steady, get traction and drive out smoothly. (Never hurts to have ppl sit on your car above the drive tire or the one that is slipping)
These would probably work as well.

The short answer is yes. If you enjoy divot knees these will do nicely.

Got a pair of these, mainly for my Polaris in the snow. I'll throw them in the wife's suburban when not on the quad.
What's really slick is using the cap of an all terrain tire. Just cut off the tread and leave then in the back of your truck. (Extra weight in the winter is good anyway)
They are tear proof and work great. (Problem with most of the ones you buy is they will get shredded - gotta spend a lot to get one that really hold up) I've seen guys add bolts to them to give the inside (slick) part of the tires tread. Also seen guys use 2 tires and glue them together to have tread on both sides. (They don't roll up well after that tho)
I've seen these in action and they work really well. I'm going to make 4 when I change out my 35's next time. Not exactly something for the Audi crowd but work great for trucks and suvs. (If you have the room and don't care about weight)

20 bucks doesn't seem that cheap for two thin pieces of rubber, you can get a large rubber workshop mat for about this price and get about 20 of these

I am thinking of using this in the shower because the tiles floor get very slippery. Anyone who have this can comment their opinion on that usage?
There are mats made for the shower. Go to your local bed bath and beyond and ask the sale reps

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.
Yeah I think he meant 2 packs, meaning 4 total.

He should clarify if he has AWD or 4WD. If he has AWD (subaru, most hondas, etc.) then he will be fine with one set, since power will be diverted to the one wheel that has grip. With 4WD (Jeep, pick-up truck) if all tires are spinning he will need 4 total mats.

Thankfully, due to global warming, we no longer get significant snowfall in Tulsa.

For awd and 4wd -4 mats are better but both you can get away with one set of two. With 4wd you will still always have power to one front and one rear wheel- even on ice. With either system if all 4 wheels spin it is best to get traction to all wheels, but two wheels are better none.

If 2 of your wheels are getting traction YOU'RE MOVING. It doesn't matter if you have AWD or FWD or RWD
