Pros: looks and ease of fitting
" Having experienced both chains and snow socks, I can thoroughly recommend, for the lighter user, the snow socks to get them out of trouble when snowfalls. Bear in mind that it involves kneeling on snowy ground, so a kneeling pad is essential. that said they are easy to fit and will do less damage to the car if they detach, unlike chains that will rip through wheel arches. Importantly they will get you practically anywhere a chain will. You can just go for the drive wheels but that generally allows the back end to break away if you are going a little too fast. "

" We had to use these tyre socks on our recent ski holiday to the French Alps. We have a BMW 5 Series estate, which is usually not good in the snow, but with these tyre socks we had no problems on the snow covered roads coming off the mountain. My only complaint was that the product was not supplied with any installation instructions. Fortunately we had watched the video link for this product, which was good and the socks are easy to install. "

" Have only used once up and down a snow covered minor road about 1.5 miles each way with some steep sections. The snow socks worked very well no wheel spinning at all even on the steeper bits.
They seem well made and robust. "

" I found the snow socks excellent for their traction. However, the instructions streched the truth by saying they could be fitted in two minutes, it turned out to be more like ten. Unfortunately, due to hitting a pothole one of the snow socks developed a nasty tear and I had to dispose of both after lessthan four days use. Would still buy another pair though. "

Pros: gives excellent grip in snow and ice
Cons: takes practice to fit quickly
" Excellent product, gave good confidence driving in several inches of snow and icy conditions. Would never have made the journey without them. They are tricky to fit especially if you have little clearance in the wheel arch, don't expect to be able to feel your fingers after fitting them in the snow. "
