TEX Car Snow Socks - £35.00 @ Asda Direct

dbt101dbt101

Posted a month ago, expired but now back in stock

Very good price for these good quality snow socks. Be quick though, they usually sell out v quickly. I have been waiting a while for these to come back into stock, I don't want to get caught out again like last winter.

ASDA -
Be prepared for snowy and icy weather conditions when driving becomes difficult, by carrying a set of TEX-CHAIN Snow & Ice Wheel Covers in your vehicle.

When you find yourself stuck, TEX-CHAIN Snow & Ice Wheel Covers give road tyres the grip they need on ice and snow. They are an ideal solution to help keep you moving.

Although TEX-CHAIN Snow & Ice Wheel Covers are not a substitute for winter tyres, they are ideal for use in the UK where snowfall is sporadic and often short lived. They offer the flexibility to be fitted quickly and easily as and when the weather predicts and whilst they can be used again and again, they offer a very economical solution.


HOW THEY WORK

The special surface shape, together with the high deformability of the textile used for the tread cover, lets you obtain:

A significant increase in the total contact area with snow or ice, owing to both the special textile construction and the use of multi-filament thread, with a consequent increase in the coefficient of friction between the wheel and the snowy or icy surface.
The penetration of the relief moulding, caused by the localized fusion of the snow or ice made by the increase in pressure contact in correspondence to the textile knots, which give the TEX-CHAIN its exclusive "grip".
A higher adherence between the inside surface of the textile and the tyre, so as to avoid any slippage between sheath and wheel.
The limitation of wear on the raised part of the moulding, thus conserving the underlying thread from direct contact with the asphalt when driving on non-snowy roads.
Maintenance of a good workability even in cases of small flaws, thanks to the “run-proof ” quality of the textile.


As a consequence, TEX-CHAIN is effective on snow and ice, driving and braking are precise and stable, its long life lets you drive comfortably for relatively long distances even on roads where snow and ice patches alternate with dry asphalt.

    There is 2 in a pack, which is all u should need. You put them onto the wheels that have the drive, mostly front wheels on modern cars. Rear wheels on a BMW etc
    Hope this helps

    These would not be legal for road use in the Ukraine would they? On private line yeah but on the highway? These can only be used on iced roads and will break when you get on tarmac according to the blurb.

    The whole point of these are for snow not tarmac, the description is a bit of a clue,

    What about snow on tarmac? Or a journey that entails transitions between snow and tarmac and vice versa? If it can't do that then what's the point?

    They could get you out a bind. Look at all the numpties that call in snow days..."sorry car is stuck in the street too much snow, car is wheelspinning" stick these on, get to the end of the road and take off again. Quicker than digging the whole street out, saves a days lost pay. If you want proper snow use get winter tyres. Even chains need taken off when the snow stops.

    Nissan Navara, 15 PSI and never got stuck once. Very controllable for 3 tonnes of steel on stock Bridgestones.


    I think you've missed the point! The vehicle is very capable but where I live it's considered very impolite to drive over the top of all the stranded BMWs blocking the streets. I guess in a traveller wagon it's allowed though? ;)

    (crikey, there are a lot of innocent words for 'traveller' not allowed on here!).

    I've got 245/40/18 and trust me, they won't fit!

    Go for snowchains off a Transit, they will fit. Also these are labelled not for sports cars, so if you have a Peugoet, Citroen or Renault you will be fine X)


    Ah, thanks. It's a TT, so it's snow chains for me or a whole new set of winter tyres.

    Hang on, an TT Quattro? You will be fine with winter tires and appropriate driving.


    It is, it has standard tyres which ain't due for replacing soon. So thought best to go with chains for this winter and switch to all season tyres before next winter.
