Re: AutoSock

Considering the majority of us run a tire wider then 265 i would say we are out of luck. My tires are to big for the sok.

It's not worth doing if you can't drop some f-bombs along the way!

Re: AutoSock

I've seen this one pop up before.

Looking at it, I doubt it will outperform even AT tires. They might help for sedans with high performance tires though.

Re: AutoSock

Haha. I saw these a couple days ago. But, some people will probably buy them and the guy who invented them will get rich.

I need to invent something dumb

Re: AutoSock

Pantyhose for your tires.........Consumers reports tested them in this last issue. They say they do work. But.... only to get you out of a jam. You can't drive with them unless you are on snow, otherwise they will get torn up and destroyed. They are a good, short term, light duty solution for a certain part of the driving public. They're light weight, easy to put on & off, and apparently do work.
