Vauxhall's new 'snow socks'
Vauxhall's new 'snow socks' for tyres have arrived at just the right time as the snow starts
Vauxhall’s new ‘snow socks’ for tyres have arrived at just the right time as the snow starts to cause havoc in parts of the UK. Vauxhall claim that the new ‘snow socks’ are more effective over ice and snow than winter tyres and far less cumbersome than snow chains.
The ‘snow socks’ are a pair of fabric snow chains that slip over the driven tyres of your car to provide extra grip. The ‘snow socks’ can be used at speeds of up to 50mph but Vauxhall stress that they should be used for vital journeys only and that drivers should ‘travel substantially slower than this’. Vauxhalls ‘snow socks can be used on any make/model of car. A set of two ‘snow socks’ can be purchased from any Vauxhall retailer priced at £49.99.
