AutoSock for Trucks
AutoSock for Trucks are textile 'socks' which can be fitted in 2 minutes flat. They use friction and high tech fibres to give truck tyres the grip they need to make progress on ice and snow.
It's that simple, and at £125 or £145 RSP they're cheap when viewed in the context of the time, hassle and above all cost of having trucks stuck in snowy conditions - it's often the short distance between the depot and the main roads which is the biggest problem.
AutoSock for Trucks are supplied in pairs, are reusable time and again and, being approximately the size of a folded shirt, are easy to store in the cab all year round for use when required. There's only one possible way to fit them, so no practice is needed. Fit them to the outer driving wheels - they'll self-centre on the tyres as you drive off.
They were launched in 2006 after a long period of testing, evaluation and improvement; the car version has been available since 2002, with over 1 million pairs sold so far.
