AutoSock - the simple solution to maximise grip on snow and ice. The secret: high performance fibers. A perfect temporary winter traction aid for vehicles. Quick and easy to fit and remove. Proven to improve cars' safety systems. Reusable. Approved by and sold to leading car manufacturers
Unexpected winter weather can create driving conditions demanding more traction than conventional tires -- or even snow treads -- can provide. But tire chains are bulky to store and can be difficult to put on in cold, snowy weather. Now there is an easy-to-use alternative to chains: Designed in Norway, AutoSock is a new and innovative lightweight fabric-based, temporary traction aid for cars and trucks that is easy to mount and gets a grip on slippery surfaces as snow and ice. AutoSock, a high-technology textile tire covering, utilizes specially patterned fibers that optimize grip on slick surfaces by managing the thin layer of water on top of ice and snow. Through its weaving pattern and thousands of small fibers AutoSock clings to snow and ice, increasing vehicle traction, improving safety and adding to driver confidence.
With AutoSock, you wont experience the rattles and bumpy ride associated with tire chains, and it is approved for speeds up to 30 mph. AutoSock is easy to install following these simple steps: Stop the vehicle and apply the emergency brake, fit AutoSock to the drive wheels of the vehicle, starting at the top of the tire and working downwards. Then, stretch the elastic band over the top of the tire to the inside of the tire, tighten the crossing strap, and move the vehicle approximately 3 feet and pull the remainder of the AutoSock into position. AutoSock automatically self-centers when you begin driving. When you re back on snow-free roads, slip the AutoSock off and slip it back into the included storage bag.
After use, AutoSock should be put back in the storage bag until the destination is reached. Then they can be machine-washed and put back in the bag, ready to go for the next snow or ice storm. Note: AutoSock is not meant for severe snow conditions, and cannot be substituted for chains for travel through mountain passes. The High Performance AutoSock accommodates performance tire sizes (typically OEM sizes for sports cars, SUVs, luxury cars, or +1/+2 wheel and tire aftermarket setups). It is also safe on aftermarket wheels and can be used with electronic traction control systems and ABS. For standard tires, try AutoSock Standard.

The autosock HP 755 was bought in a set of 2 for all 4 wheels of my vehicle. The winter snow is coming soon, and this is a fast way to get some traction.Published 22 months ago by JOE
I haven't used the autosock yet, but even the idea of NOT using chains makes me happy enough to give this 4 stars. Read morePublished 22 months ago by Amazon Customer
