Snow socks

Hi - just thought I'd post on my experience with car Snow Socks.


I brought a pair from Halfords and collected on Friday just before heading off to the Malverns for a weekend away. Staying on an isolated farm the track back up to the road proved impossible for normal front-wheel cars, but with these on I just drove straight up. I was unbelievably chuffed!   B)


You slip them over the top of the tyre as much as you can - you get long plastic gloves to keep you clean, (although you still get cold fingers!) - and then drive forward a couple of feet so you can slip over the rest.


They pack away to practically nothing so will live in my boot until the next time I get stuck.


They are legal to use in the French Alps as an alternative to chains, so must have been tested quite A worthwhile investment!
