    These European-made all fabric snow tyre socks will give you instant grip on fresh and compacted snow, enabling 2 wheel drive cars to drive off effortlessly and travel at up to 50km/h (30mph) safely on snow. They work as well on a sports car as a family motor. Fitting is so easy -just fit the elasticated cover round most of your tyre, drive forward or backwards a few inches and complete the job. It only takes a minute or two. Remove when on a clear road for multiple event re-use.

    Highly recommended if you're planning ski-drive trip this winter, a whole lot less expensive, weight and faff than snow chains.

    • TUV Approved, made in Europe
    • No vibrations when driving
    • No damage to tyres - no metal parts
    • 2 socks per pack - only £15 per wheel !
    • Quick and easy to fit
    • Storage bag and gloves provided
    • You only need 1 pack of socks for the driven wheels to keep costs down - thats only a £30 investment for most cars

    I bought a pair about four years ago, and yet to use 'em. It's nice to know they are there, if need be. :)

    I have 4matic :D

    Also have a set of chains, funky Thule K Series that fit from the last car, as a last resort, or to put on stuck vehicles if necessary, as on Thursday evening :D

    When I had my Defender I took s different tack... Defenders are pretty handy in snow anyway but as backup I had several really heavy duty towing straps and an electric winch with a 9500lb pull. Very handy for extracting stuck Discoverys...

    Yes my retired fathers mission in life is centred around his log burner,
    sourcing the cheapest logs is the primary objective and who delivers for free.

    We've still got a few pairs left, if your size is available.

    Its kind of ironic that demand for these steps up when it has already snowed, but the couriers cant get to customers to deliver them...
