If you place two narrow planks of wood on either side of an electric cord on a driveway so cars can drive over the wood without damaging the cord, does it wear out one's tires if you drive over wood planks everyday?

  • Make sure the planks don't bounce around. I can see them moving and pinching the cord and damaging it even more than just rolling over it with a car tire would.

No, it won’t - but it does help to clip the planks together and also to chamfer the leading and trailing edges.


No,tires would not get damaged if you drive it over the wood. But few points to consider :

  1. Maintain proper tyre pressure.
  2. Do not spin your tires too much if they are stuck that may cause it to over heat and would damage the threads
