Product Description

Spikes-Spider Compact traction device is excellent for use on ice and snow up to 5"-6" deep. Compact provides superior traction on ice. Used on moderate grades and slopes. The "Compact" style is the newest style of SPIKES-SPIDER. It has eight or nine (depending on the size) traction arms. Each arm has tungsten carbide studs embedded in the traction surface. The traction arms can be moved slightly to avoid the ground to put them on quickly and easily, once the steel hubs have been installed on two drive wheels. The arms fold down or can easily be removed from the center holding ring for storage, so they do not take up as much room in your vehicle as the Quick style. The Compact style traction ovals, that go around the tire have some adjustment-for adjustment ranges see the tables, Spider Sizes vs. Tire Sizes. Each size Compact style has a Small "S" and Large "L" adjustment using a cam that is easy to turn. Appropriate for use on moderate grades and slopes. Like the Quick, Sport and Alpine Pro, the Compact traction arms do not extend to the back portion of the tire, so they do not cause clearance problems on vehicles. They cover one-third to one-half of the outside surface of the tire tread, giving great coverage and traction.

The Spikes-Spider Compact Series Winter Traction Aid is an exceptionally easy-to-use traction device that makes studded tires and snow chains obsolete. Sold as a set, the Compact Style package contains two multi-armed traction aids (elements), embedded with tungsten studs, that install and can be removed from tires literally in 1-2 minutes, all without having to reach into your car's wheel wells or drive over traction devices laid out in the snow or ice. Additional features include: wear resistant polymer materials, a maximum recommended speed of 30 MPH with traction elements installed and a rugged carrying case for all series components included.

Innovation in Tire Traction

Spikes-Spider traction elements are an innovative alternative to old-fashioned snow chains and studded tires for use on ice and snow up to 5"-6" deep. The Compact version of the Spikes-Spider comes in a set of two, attaching to each of your drive wheels and has eight -- or nine (depending on the size) -- traction arms constructed of permanently elastic, wear resistant polymer materials, surrounding a central hub made up of those same materials. This hub in turn attaches, via a hand-turned locking ring, to a heavy duty steel hub semi-permanently attached to your car's tire. Each arm has multiple tungsten carbide studs embedded in their traction surface, which sit just below the outer edge of the treads of your tires - but only in direct contact with them at the point of contact with the road. This allows the arms of the Spikes-Spider Compact element to provide maximum traction in icy, snowy and every muddy road situations without affecting the tread of your tires.

The Easy, Fast and Clean Traction Solution

In addition to its superior traction abilities, the Spikes-Spider Compact element also is a valuable tool simply by means of its extreme ease of use when compared with traction tires and chains. Virtually anyone can install or remove the Spikes-Spider, in any weather or terrain condition, in a matter of minutes, if not seconds. Again, the secret is its multiple flexible traction arms. Adjustable to the right or left, and only installing along the outer edge of your tires, the arms of the Spikes-Spider Compact element closest to the ground are easily parted as you attach the device's hub to your tire. This allows you to avoid the wet, dirty, cold job of aligning a traction device to the bottom of tires, familiar to anyone who has chained up their car along the side of an icy or snowy road. All that you need to do with Spikes-Spider Compact elements is to slip it over your tires and quickly snap them into place with the locking ring. The traction elements that you adjusted will realign themselves naturally, leaving you ready to roll in seconds. Removing Spikes-Spider Compact elements is just as quick and easy by removing the lock ring, pulling the element partially off and driving your car a few feet to free the traction arms of the elements from under your tires.

I live in Nothern Ca around 3200 ft. These Spikes-Spikes-Spider 17.464 C4 Compact Series Winter Traction Aid Series Winter Traction Aid - Set of 2Spider's are real good in mild snow conditions and provide great trackion,especially going up a 50yrd driveway. I would recommend these to any one who can enjoy a set of these on the front end with front wheel drive. It takes only 5 minutes to take them out of the trunk and snap then in place. They really are easy and it means no more chanes or studded tires. This is a great investment if you live in a snow area as I do.

I have a FWD Volvo V50. I have been putting off ski trips for the past few years based on a lack of good snow chains that are easy to put on until I discovered Spikes Spider. They aren't cheap by any mean but they worth every dollar you pay. Swiss made and you can see the quality in every part from the hub to the nuts and bolts. Ordering from Amazon is slightly different than ordering directly from Spikes-Spider. From the former, you get mounting hardware for your specific vehicle. From the latter, you get a little more. You still get the spider arms for your specific tire size but the hub kits give you generic mounting hardwares for all vehicles. This gives you more flexibility down the road and better resell value. The only drawback that I could think of? once you put all the arms to the hub, they take up a lot of space. Much more than snow chains. That is OK if there is a lot of room in the trunk. Alternatively, you may be able to put them on top of the spare tire under the boot floor. That is a deal killer to me since it takes up almost of the trunk space in my Volvo wagon.

Have not had enough challenging weather to prove the Spikes/Spiders on the few miles of back road I travel to access the interstate, so the traction arms are still in the box. However, when I left the center disc in place for normal road use at interstate speeds, the wheels on my small SUV vibrated as if out of balance. Removed, no vibration. If I'm to use these tools, I'll have to remove the entire assembly, not just the traction arms--not what I need at 5am when I'm on my way to work 45 miles away. One more issue: the assembly precludes the use of a locking lug nut, suboptimal when parking in a huge urban lot. I'll be returning these items.
