All these ground straps, are they effective if the car is sitting on four rubber tires? Not being a smartass, serious question. 
 

Frenchy at least says he had a piece of steel he set on the ground.

The ground straps are more like bonding straps. They equalize the static charge on both sides of the moving fluid. When the charge is equal on both sides, electricity doesn’t jump from one side to the other. 

So, the tires don’t matter.
