When buying new snow socks it is advisable to practice fitting them in dry conditions, so you will be more comfortable fitting them when they are needed in snowy and icy conditions.
Install snow socks on the driving wheels of the vehicle. Drive slowly and with caution paying great attention. Do not exceed 40 km/h, avoid sudden acceleration and braking, slow down when taking a corner and avoid skidding.
How To Select the Right Snow Socks For Your Wheels
- To see which snow socks are suitable for your car, you need to identify your tyre size. Your tyre size is displayed on the tyre wall and looks like the example below:
- 185 70 R14
- Tyre width: 185
- Tyre profile: 70
- Rim size: 14
Halfords Snow Socks XL is rated out of 5 by 35.Rated 1 out of 5 by MikeWales from Poor Durability. Great in theory, but not in practice The product is a great idea, but the materials used in the product are not durable enough for the task. I only used the product on a 100 metre snow covered road, to get me onto a clear main road. The product worked well, and I got there with relative ease, but when I tried to remove the socks (immediately after reaching the clear road), the socks were falling to pieces, and had large holes in them. They may have got my car out, but these 'ONE USE ONLY' socks are not worth the £60 I paid. DO NOT BUY !Date published: 2018-03-19Rated 3 out of 5 by Dave3000 from Great when you manage to get them on! Purchased these recently due to the forecasted bad weather. I had to use them once and they worked very well although I only drove a very short distance after getting stuck so don't know how durable they'll be. The down side is they were incredibly difficult to fit due to the gap between the tyre and wheel arch and next time I will be jacking the car up to fit them which will be time consuming but will save my arms from getting scratched to pieces. I have a notoriously bad in the snow 525 BMW with standard wheels and suspension so thought it would be easy. If considering these I urge you to check if your arms will easily fit between your tyre and wheel arch through to the inside of the tyre otherwise you need to Jack it up to increase the gap.Date published: 2018-03-15Rated 4 out of 5 by HugoC61 from Multigrip Snow socks XL Brought them as travelling to Scotland during the bad snow. Did not have to use them. However the quality of them looks very good, strong and robust. Good to have in the boot of the car being a rear wheel driver car!Date published: 2018-03-14Rated 4 out of 5 by Wingcommander123 from Great Emergency Tool I used these socks during the recent snow event and found them excellent. They found traction in very slippy conditions.They were quiet and smooth on the road. The problem I have is that I only used them for about 5 K and on removing them found broken threads which if neglected would lead to the socks coming apart. I have ordered some Kevlar thread which I will use to repair them. I hope this will make them new again. I don't think I would trust them on anything but short trips. Pity. Previously I had a set of snow chains that never let me down.Date published: 2018-03-12Rated 1 out of 5 by RadioCornwall247 from Sock came off the wheel One of the socks came off while driving along the B3280 snow was only about 5cm deep so was not to impressedDate published: 2018-03-12Rated 4 out of 5 by Briskeby from Awaiting first snow sock test! Product is well packaged and looks well made. I will review again when they are put into service to get me out!Date published: 2018-02-14Rated 5 out of 5 by ACQuartermaster from Very very good I had chains for a previous car. Current tyres are 235/40 and need "special" chains so I thought I would try the snow socks. I needed to get up the fire road at Strathpuffer 2018 which was a hard packed snow surface which these snow socks just dealt with. No slips, very secure, easy to fit - less hassel than the old chains used to be. No damage done to the socks either they seem pretty strong. Well done guys.Date published: 2018-02-04Rated 5 out of 5 by airhugs from Quick and easy and worked well Really easy to fit and gave all the traction I needed in a VERY icy parking lot in France. Well worth the price.Date published: 2018-01-11
