Rated 5 out of 5 by sharon211 wow there so good, best purchase ever
wow these are fab, without them i was sliding when trying to slow down at a junction,,,with them on, they have such a good grip,,wish i had them before now....they take a good 2 mins per wheel,,place on wheel 3/4 on both sides move the car forward to place the other half of it. To take them off pull off the top half, drive up a little and remove them. allow to dry out..they can be washed too, and you can drive on dry roads but only 25mph.....i do recommend using the elbow length gloves supplied to protect your clothes....
i bought this fri 8 feb 2013 , they came on tue 12 and i could use them on the wed 13

Purchased a set of these last yearr for my son, who used them in recent bad snowy weather, he drove 20 mile home from work and felt much more confident having fitted snow socks, he did say they took about 20min to initially fit, but beleives next time he would fit them easier. After removing them "2min job" and checked them over there was no damage and can be used over and over again. He said it was as if he had 4wheel drive!.
If you only get one safe journey home out of these it is much much cheaper than a body shop repair!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Agent00 Easy to use
I got stuck going up an icy hill when someone in front of me stopped. It took less than 2 minutes to put the snow socks on. Without any effort I was able to continue on my journey. When I needed to remove the snow socks it was just as easy as putting them on. Great product to keep in my work van, they have got me out of trouble 3 times and I have owned them less than a week!

I bought these wheel covers to replace a set of snow chains (which worked but which were a nightmare to put on).
I haven't used them for long journeys so can't comment on what they are like at speed or how long they would last, but following the recent snow (Jan 2013) I used them several times to get from our local (uncleared) roads to the main roads.
The first time it snowed I hoped I could make it without using them but there was no traction, even with the help of a friendly neighbour pushing. So I put the covers on, which only took 1-2 minutes per wheel and simply drove off as if the snow wasn't there.
Absolutely essential item to keep in the boot and pretty quick to pull off the wheels as well.

These covers are easy to put on -takes about 1 minute for each tyre ,need to move car only once in order to complete covering of the wheel . Started to drive without and was struggling on the side roads covered in couple inches of snow but after putting these on ,driving was skid -free and could feel good grip while driving . Car is Nissan Tino MPV . Morning time was ok as well when snow became ice -no problems at all ,obviously speed has to be low-max speed is 25mph but drove bit faster on the main roads that were clear . There was no visible damage on the covers after 2 days of driving partially on clear roads. Price is great and they could be washed in the washing machine when the winter is over . Time will show how long they will last but at the moment no complaints only regret that I wasted money on a set of chains that used to take me over 20 min to put on!
