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 - storage bag

Have Autosocks for 9 years and have never needed to use them.
Money well spent.
Saw them being used by the RAC on the rear wheels of a Transit. He was moving and I could not in Winter of 2010 in Glasgow.

I won a pair af Autosocks on this very site years ago, thanks Ratty. They can still be used on my second car since then but luckily I've never had to use them, however, it still gives you peace of mind that if needed, they would get you out of trouble.

Do these actually work? I have never had to use them. I have never had a problem in snow or mud, but then I use aggressive mud/AT tyres. I do laugh at many other 4x4 who think that because they have 4 wheel drive they can go anywhere even though their vehicle is fitted with low profile road tyres. The number of Range Rovers, BMW X's and Audi Q's I have seen humiliated by an ancient Defender or Series Land Rover scampering past them up a snowy hill is surprisingly high. 4 wheel drive only helps if you have suitable tyres for the terrain.
