How do they work?

It is well known that snow and ice sticks to textiles. AutoSock is made from 100% high-technology fibers. These fibers, which become hairier with use, are arranged in a specific pattern in order to optimize grip. The specially developed textile has the advantage of handling water film found between the icy and snowy road and the tire, (generated e.g. by heat from the sun, or wheel spin), thereby maximizing the grip.

What happens if you are so stuck that even with these you are still spinning?

Are they fire retardant?

Will they melt if they get to hot?

They don't make a size to fit either of my sets of tires.


I don't understand how covering treads can increase grip, but I'm also not the physics major here. :dunno:

Yeah, I'm sure that's DOT approved :rolleyes:
DOT does not approve aftermarket equipment. Only O.E.

Thats why after market hoods are so dangerous, hell, Ive been preaching that for years on forums.... they dont have to undergo crash testing to insure they dont come through the windshield and take your head off in a front end collision. Ask some old f body guys, i got into it with SunCoast down in Atlanta at the first f body gathering in 1997.....

if they hit the pavement they will shred before combustion. and they wont combust if they are spinning in 25 degree weather on snow or ice........ thats been tested, the liability alone would kill them if they didnt have that base covered.

they submitted an application to Govt. for inclusion. I cant further comments.

Really?

So i guess we no longer screen vendors around here before we let them join?
Looks like if you have the money, we'll take it. Must be expensive to run the site nowadays. I'm waiting for a strip joint to start sponsoring us. :)

I didn't look, but do they make these to fit an 08 Grand Cherokee Limited AWD? It would be nice to increase my snow traction! These look like a terrific idea and they seem to know their market very well, so maybe they do make them specifically for the Jeeps! That would be GREAT!!
