Anti-Skid Snow & Ice Wheel Covers - Size XL

Anti-Skid Snow & Ice Wheel Covers are an anti-skid device made from technical fabric for cars and vans. Universal Multigrip tread is made of high grip multifilament thread in 100% recyclable polypropylene. The covers have three specially designed inserts made from polyurethane, an extremely durable and flexible synthetic material.

Because they can be used again and again, they are an economical way of driving more safely - far cheaper than a good set of snow chains. You can slip our snow socks off within minutes when the snow and ice has gone.

How They Work

Our snow socks enable you to drive and brake with precision, confidence and stability on snow or ice, even over relatively long distances on roads where there are patches of tarmac.

Increased Grip - through a special surface shape and flexible threads.

More Contact With The Road - the special design and construction of the material increases friction between the wheel and ice, helping to prevent wheel spin and skidding.

Stays On The Tyre - the high quality construction of Universal Multigrip snow socks means that when properly fitted they do not slip off the wheel.

Tough Material - meaning you can drive over tarmac for short distances with minimal damages to the snow sock providing you follow the safety guidelines.

Lasts Longer - use our snow socks again and again. The material has been specially designed to prevent unravelling and damage.

The Technology

A great deal of research has gone into making the technology behind Universal Multigrip snow socks work so well in difficult winter driving conditions. The special surface shape, together with the high deformability of the textile used for the tread cover, means you obtain: 

  • A more secure grip on snowy roads because the shape of the sock's relief moulding - that is the part of the design that gives the product its Multigrip name. 
  • The ability to drive directly over tarmac over short distances because the raised part of the moulding protects the underlying thread from contact with the bare road. 
  • Greater lifespan because the textile is designed not to unravel when it is slightly distressed. 
  • A higher adherence between the inside surface of the textile and the tyre, so as to avoid any slippage between sheath and wheel. 
  • 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, increasing the amount of friction between the wheel and the snow or icy surface. 
  • The penetration of the relief moulding, cause by the localised fusion of the snow or ice made by the increase in pressure contact in correspondence with the textile knots, gives the snow socks their exclusive "grip". 

Fitting

Universal Multigrip is quick and easy to fit. Each pack contains a set of two wheel covers to be fitted to the vehicle's traction wheels. They can be fit very easily within 2 minutes. 

Sizes

In order to meet the easy handling demand by both the retailer and the consumer, Universal Multigrip covers the majority of passenger cars and light commercial vehicles on the market with only five sizes - Small, Medium, Large, Extra Large and Extra Extra Large. 

Universal Multigrip can be fitted on high performance vehicles with tyre dimensions of up to 20 inches and on vehicles where it is very difficult to mount traction devices like snow because there is not enough room between the wheel and the car body.
