DENVER, Col. – It’s that time of year again, and if you’re hoping to get a grip on the road, AutoSocks could be the answer you’re looking for.
AutoSock AS, the provider of an alternative traction device for passenger and commercial vehicles, announced its product lines cover an array of wide-based single tires, including AL 111 – 445/50R22.5, 455/50R22.5 and 395/80R20, and AL 114 – 455/55R22.5.
“AutoSock is a proven alternative to chains,” said Chuck Abourezk, sales manager at McGee Company, which distributes AutoSock products in the US for Class 3-8 medium- and heavy-duty trucks. “It uses high-performance fibers and a specially designed surface pattern to maximize the total contact area exposed to dry friction on snow and ice covered roads. Unlike tire chains, AutoSock does not damage a vehicle’s fenders and exposed brake lines, and it is fully compatible with ABS and traction control systems.”
AutoSock AS said its product is the only named approved ATD that has been approved for use in British Columbia, Washington and Colorado, and can be used in states that have no specific device exclusions when chain requirements are in effect.
The company said AutoSocks can be installed in five to eight minutes and weigh less than five pounds per pair.
