AutoSock offers tire chain alternative ahead of the winter season

With winter well on its way, AutoSock highlights its line of alternative tire chains, which are put around the tires in wintery conditions to improve traction, with the goal of preventing traction loss. The product’s textile cover uses high-performance fibers to maximize friction on snow and ice covered roads. The AutoSock fabric consists of millions of micro fibers that provide direct contact with the snow or ice, thereby creating dry friction as opposed to wet friction. This, AutoSock says, differs from traditional chains, which rely on leverage for traction.

At less than 6 lbs. per pair compared to 48 lbs. for a pair of traditional chains, AutoSocks also provide a weight savings of more than 40 lbs. per pair. The company also points out that it meets the requirements of states that restrict the use of alternative traction products that can damage road surfaces, and that it is the only traction device that is compatible with ABS braking systems and traction control systems.
