They are pretty good and have a window breaker built in too.

Have something to contribute?

Yeah, I saw a review on them and may pick a few up, they're about £10.

Thanks :P

Decided to buy 3, one to put on my small pocket knife, one for my keys, and then one that I've tied on an extendible lanyard in the car :P

hey guys just an update

 

i bought some snow socks at Christmas time with the hope of using them, however couldn't build up the courage to go out in the snow, but this last week as you know its been snowing so decided as i know my car more now i put them on and .. WOW ... from someone who was constantly looking for a curb to stop my car sliding i just drive straight on through, they are excellent, im considering buying another set to keep in the car (a new dry pair)

 

once i knew what they were capable of i took them to various locations and tried them out, including steep hills (up and down) housing estates, carparks, nothing stopped them.

 

they sound excellent whats the catch? well...

 

they suggest to travel at speeds of no more than 20mph however i tried at 30mph and was fine (it only increases the ammount of wear with the faster you go),

 

the cost.. average pair costing £55,

 

1 last thing is i would suggest getting a set 1 size bigger than your wheel size (14" wheel buy 15" set) this will mean easier removal in any situation
