Vauxhall introduces affordable winter tyres alternative

Vauxhall Accessories welcomes the addition of Snow Socks; the ‘more effective’ and ‘less cumbersome’ alternative to winter tyres and snow chains.

Arriving just in time for winter, Vauxhall’s TUV-approved Snow Socks are made from a textured fabric that sticks to dry snow and ice. They simply slip over the tyres of a vehicle and optimise its grip on the road.

Snow Socks can be fitted to any make or model of vehicles, from superminis and SUVs like the Vauxhall Corsa and Antara, to commercial vehicles such as the Movano.

Vauxhall recommends always carrying a set of Snow Socks when setting off for a journey this winter, especially given the temperament of the British weather, which is unpredictable at the best of times.

“With so many of us caught out by the big freeze last year, it’s important to be better prepared for whatever this winter will throw at us," said Vauxhall Accessories Manager, Sophie Thomas.

“Snow Socks are a perfect solution. They’re easily fitted and stored, and, if used according to the guidelines, will last for years."

Snow Socks are available now from Vauxhall Retailers from £49.95 (RRP).
