AutoSock size AL64, one pair, no. ASAL64

£124.95
RRP: £125.00
Code: ASAL64

AutoSock are textile 'socks' which you slip over the outer driving wheels when you need extra grip on ice or snow. They take a couple of minutes to fit and will self-centre on the tyres as you drive off. Theyíre supplied in pairs, have a long term shelf life, fold to about the size of a manís shirt, are relatively very cheap when compared to winter tyres or snow chains, and are reusable time and again.


AutoSock for trucks and buses were launched in 2006 after a long period of testing, evaluation and improvement. The car version has been selling since 2002, mostly on recommendation, and anyone who's had the opportunity to test them for real will immediately realise why. Most people are not only surprised but astonished at the difference they make to general traction, cornering, and braking.

"This cheap alternative to snowchains or to winter tyres is staggeringly easy to fit... I used them while driving in the French Alps last week and can confirm they are absolutely superb." (Nat Barnes, Motoring Editor, Daily Express and Sunday Express)

AutoSock are approved by many car manufacturers, including Alfa Romeo, BMW, Fiat, Honda, Nissan, PSA Peugeot CitroŽn, Lexus, Mercedes-Benz, Mitsubishi, Toyota, and VW.

AutoSock for trucks and buses are in fact more efficient than winter tyres, they're very small - about the size of a folded shirt - and should therefore be stored in the cab all year for use when required - "Expect the unexpected!" They can be used time and again and, unlike snow chains, can even be fitted on a hill, after you've got stuck.

We show some test data on the web site [link to follow]; it shows that even on a 12% incline, where the test trucks slipped back down the hill before AutoSock were fitted, the AutoSock for trucks and buses could be fitted on the slope, and then the trucks moved both up and down the hill, repeatedly, without any problems. A similar test was done on sheet ice on a 6% incline. They've also been approved by the German T‹V.

The bottom line is that AutoSock will provide a massive boost in all round confidence when driving on ice and snow, and hopefully "Get you home" or to wherever you're going, but don't overcook it, i.e. you should always drive with particular care in wintry conditions.

Each set contains one pair of AutoSock for trucks and buses.

Full instructions are shown on each bag which is also designed for easy and clean carrying of dirty AutoSock once you've taken them off the wheels (pull them off with the orange straps).

There's only one possible way to fit AutoSock for trucks and buses, and no practice is required.

You'll find that small holes are worn in the fabric if they're used on tarmac or heavily gritted roads, but this is no big deal - use commonsense to decide when they are finally worn out.

Please test them at the first good opportunity, and then pass the word!

Amazing! My wife found herself stuck in snow and ice in the Pennines hills high above Holmfirth. Cars were spinning off the road and drivers couldnít keep control of their vehicles driving down the hill. Several accidents occurred as cars slid into each other. We drove to my wifeís car in a Land Rover Discovery, working our way through the chaos. 5 minutes later, once the Autosocks were fitted to her car, we reversed, did a 3 point turn and drove steadily away up the hill. We drove home on narrow, snow covered roads, up and down steep inclines, only passable by tractor, 4 x 4's and cars fitted with Autosocks. I canít believe how good the socks are.

Bought these a couple of years ago but hadn't needed them until last week. We were caught up in the chaos in France on 27th / 28th December. Stopped to put snow socks on as soon as the road became covered in snow . Took 5 minutes to put on and they were brilliant. Great grip on snow covered mountain road full of hair pin bends. Drove at 20 mph for 10 miles with no problems. Easy to remove & dry out once we reached our destination.

Couldn't get up the road to my house - completely stuck. Fitted AutoSock and drove off instantly, no drama. I was boggled at how well they worked. My car has quite a tight gap between the arch and the tyre so they were a bit fiddly to get round the back of the wheel. But they worked wonderfully.

Regards AutoSock snow socks on my 2nd pair first set lasted 9 years one of the best winter aids you can have. At winters end pop in washer till next year.

About our reviews:

We test, and often use personally, almost all the products we sell, and we stand behind our comments and recommendations unless customers convince us they need changing. Our Customer Services and Workshop staff also have input into our recommendations.

But it's because we've learned a lot over many years that customer feedback is so important. Fresh, first time out opinions are the most useful ones, and in any event we certainly don't have access to the full range of vehicles that our customers have between them.

Product feedback from existing customers helps our new customers make choices, and also helps our suppliers with their product development.

We e-mail our customers a week or so after their order arrives and invite them to send in a review.

Some reviews are suitable for multiple products. Where appropriate we may, for example, use the same review for a number of different roof bar products where the only difference is the length of the roof bar.
