AutoSock’s textile-cover tire traction device

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAAutoSock’s textile-cover Alternative Traction Device product line now includes four models in a range of sizes for wide-base single tires to provide an alternative to chains when traction devices are required. High-performance fibers and a specially designed surface pattern help maximize the total contact area exposed to dry friction on snow- and ice-covered roads without damaging fenders and exposed brake lines. The covers are engineered to be compatible with anti-lock braking and traction control systems and can be stored inside a cab or tool compartment. They are designed to be installed in five to eight minutes per vehicle, and at less than five pounds per pair, they also provide a weight savings compared to a set of chains.
