Studded Tires on Garage Floor Mats
Will Studded Snow Tires Damage Garage Floor Mats?
In a word YES!
One of the most popular questions this time of year is how will garage floor mats do with studded tires. The bottom line is this. If you take tires with metal studs and run them over a plastic floor, they are going to do some damage, that is just common sense.
We have had some customers use studded tires with the commercial grade BLT garage floor mats. Those customers who make turns and adjustments in the garage do significantly more damage to the floor that customers who simply pull in and out slowly.
The Auto Floor Guard and the 20 Mil Park Smart Clean Park products will be very quickly destroyed by studded snow tires. The 50 Mil Park Smart Clean Park used in conjunction with the floor runners from the same company have held up well. The runners will need to be replaced every few years.
We are working on a runner for the G-Floor Products.
