The auto socks do look good, thx. Much lighter than chains anyway. Only need 2, for outside drive tires, and prices ranged from $180-$250 depending on tire sizes. Approved where tire traction is required in all US states.

Last trip we planned a lot of winter driving so I bought two pairs of cable chains just in case, partly because we get off the highways a lot and side tracks don't get ploughed so you are on your own. Preference would be to sit it out if a main highway is marginal, but carrying the chains is mandatory in some places so ...

I always chuckle in oregon when I see the signs that say "carry chains or traction tires". Who would carry traction tires and if they did who would be dumb enough to be out there trying to put them on. It should say "carry chains or use traction tires". Three letters. And knowing oregon it was probably a per letter cost so they were trying to save money.

My grandpa when he was alive carried a set of traction tires with chains installed before the tires were aired up in his pickup towing a 5th wheel. If he needed chains he'd take the rear highway tread tires off and install prechained set on pickup. The chains were very tight and he could go faster and not worry about throwing a chain off. When he got to bare road hed switch them back. He carried and electric impact and rolling floor jack. Said hed switch tires faster than most could chain and didnt have to listen to traction tires howl all winter in california and arizona. I dont mind chaining up semi here in Washington all winter but everyone has there own method.
