well man now we are talking a whole different kind of snow. I have done a lot of snow driving when we used to actually get some snow around here. I miss it a lot.

also most of my cars have cavernouse enough wheels wells that this would never be an issue enclosed or not. I could see it maybe being a problem on the metro. I wonder of a teflon coating on the inside of the wheel well would be enough to prevent the ice from building up in the first place. another idea is heaters under the wells but that raises safety concerns unless you used a hot water circulation system but then your now talking ultra complex.

Interesting issue. There are an assortment of cars that come with skirts stock. I wonder how they deal with the problem or if most have large enough wells not to be a problem.
