Its a no brainer to carry something as a precaution if one is touring in winter.

The Chinese ones might be worth a punt at that price.
I had a set of snow socks for my birthday from my lad and they were nowhere near 70 quid. They were around 40 quid which puts them in the same bracket as 2 sets of these Chinese things.
IF it’s snowy enough to need anything like these or chains I would be staying put!!
Unless of course I had gone somewhere to go skiing (I don’t ski!)
Here you go, set of six for £50 including postage from France.
Or if you can wait a couple of weeks, £19 for each set of three from China.
Always an outside risk of having to pay VAT if you buy direct from China.
|fatbuddha||compared to a set of snow chains, £82 isn't bad for something that you are unlikely to use - I have only used my chains once in 14 years. I have Spike Spiders chains and to buy the equivalent pair these days would cost around £350! a decent pair of classic chains is c£150 (you can pay a lot less but they are often not good enough on heavy vehicles). a new pair of snow socks is c£70 although you can always pick unused new on ebay as people change vehicles that have different wheel sizes - I picked up a pair for £30 recently for our new m/h.|
Not come acros them before but at £10.43 per item that work out at £82 for a set of 4 for the two driven wheels and that is not cheap.
I wonder how tough they are and how long they would last........
"Only a rich man can afford to buy cheaply - buy cheap buy often"
an alternative to snow chains??
just come across these on Ebay while looking at new snow chains.
I already have some chains and snow socks in the motorhome to get me out of trouble in snow, but these look like an interesting cheap alternative, but probably best for light snow conditions - anyone have an experience of these???
