AutoSock is the new generation of winter traction devices. Made of textile, it is pulled over the driving wheels of cars, vans, trucks, buses and forklifts when extra grip is needed in winterly conditions. As the highest certified of its kind, AutoSock is a legal solution for cars and commercial vehicles.

AutoSock takes three minutes to install – even on vehicles with low clearance. The textile is damage-free to alloy rims and our sizes fit nearly every tire dimension. When not in use, our lightweight and compact products can be easily stored year round in the trunk.
