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 Öget you home!
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.
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.
have had these for about 6years 1pair for i20 09 did,nt need them as weather never been to up here houghton le spring but when snow came last nov we went for ride out towards stanhope co durhan dicide came to a steep bank good covering of snow cars just could,nt get up even large 4X4 range rover sliding .i used these for first time , GREAT i over took the cars stuck on bank even passed the 4x4 which wasnt stuck but could see he was having problems we even 2 pairs for18" wheels for our 2010 antara 4x4 cdti 2.0 when winter towing which i havent had to use yet and when do go away in winter ,which is normal northyorks or lakes i all so take the other pair which is 14" wheel which i would put on the caravan stop it sliding so all in all these socks are great
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.
