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

Agreed. However, if you are preparing to be on the Naked and Afraid tv show, where you will be barefoot in some rough terrain for at least 21 days, these could be useful to toughen the feet up.

Maybe Goodyear should remarket these to that crowd. 😁
Should give you good posture too, because you have to balance within a 7" band.
So much for a relaxing shower.

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

Agree that tires will do alot for traction. I put snow tires on my wife's camry and she never have issues in Colorado. She used to work in the mountain a couple os years back too. Her car is like on rail when I test it in snow.

I also agree with the other posters who said if you got your car in a bad spot these will probably help.

How abt using the car mat in emergency?
I'd buy thick rubber floor mats for that reason before I'd buy these.

I ordered these last week and they're great and are a great price compared to a lot of the others. Hopefully I'll never need them but just incase I do I'll have them. I hope this helps someone!

Edit: There are no pictures showing how these are delivered or stored on the Walmart listing so I added the last two from another site. They come attached together with a removable and reusable strap around them so they can be carried like a briefcase. They stack together very nicely and create a 1 foot rubber brick that can easily be stored in a trunk.
How do you know they are great if you haven't had the opportunity or need to use them yet?

Would anyone recommend these to use them as curbside protector near the end of driveway so my wife can stop hitting under the bumper on her sedan every time ?

With 4wd you will still always have power to one front and one rear wheel- even on ice.
Unless you have a lockable diff, as many trucks have on the rear axle. That said, there are very few lockable front differentials out there.

Yes and no. If your tire isn't gripping, then sure, you're not going anywhere.

But if you have traction on a wheel that isn't powered, you're also not going anywhere.

It's about traction at the drive tires.

LSD > traction control

it just works better but in normal usage TCS mostly does the trick

What does the bottom look like? Any spikes there to help keep it planted on the icy snow?

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
Yes, because you have summer low profile tires!

Id say maxtracks, but you have to have the storage space for it. These take up significantly less space.
