AutoSock Ice and Snow Wheel Socks

AutoSock car snow socks are the high tech solution to an age old problem - how to give road tyres the grip they need on ice and snow to …get you home!
AutoSock - textile wheel covers with an elasticated edge; you just slip them over the driving wheels when you find yourself getting stuck. Be prepared for the winter by carrying a set of AutoSock in your car, happy in the knowledge that:
  • fitting them is easy. If you can pull a sock over your foot you can push a fabric cover over a wheel.
  • fitting them requires no practice.
  • they weigh less than 1kg and take up minimal space. It's sensible to keep them with the spare wheel, always ready for use.
  • they are relatively universal, i.e. one size fits over 60% of cars.
  • they're reusable again and again - providing value for money for years to come.
  • they work!
  • prices start at only £49.95!

Probably the most difficult part of the operation is remembering that they're there! AutoSock are availabe for cars, vans and trucks (even buses) so they should be able to sort out most motorhomes as well.

AutoSock provides an ideal "Get me Home" or "Get me to that meeting" solution - but only if you keep a set in the car! Although developed in Norway, they're particularly appropriate for the UK, where we experience sudden and sporadic snow fall, usually short lasting, but so often the cause of massive disruption and inconvenience while it lasts.

Most of us take our chances because, all things considered, it's hard to justify the use of winter tyres, and carrying snow chains is "over the top". The good news is that tests show AutoSock to be more effective than winter tyres, with the further benefit that you only fit them when you need them.

Each set includes:

One pair of AutoSock
Long gloves
Instructions printed on the packaging
Storage bag

I was lucky enough to win a set of these on this site last year and I'm glad to say they have never been used so far. It may be a different story next week acording to the weather forecast but I still have the peace of mind if kicks off. If I never use them again this year either I will be well chuffed. Dave

Just before Xmas, after the last snow we had up here, I replaced my old M&S rated tyres, which were getting near the limits, with a set of All weather (winter rated) M&S tyres. It has not snowed here since BUT we have just had a Yellow Weather warning this morning that we will probably get snow today concentrated more here in Co Durham with up to 4" on the high ground. Where I live is on a hill with 3 main roads into it and you have to go up a hill whichever road you take into it.
