“AutoSock is a proven alternative to chains,” said Chuck Abourezk, sales manager at McGee Company. “It uses high-performance fibers and a specially designed surface pattern to maximize the total contact area exposed to dry friction on snow and ice covered roads. Unlike tire chains, AutoSock does not damage a vehicle’s fenders and exposed brake lines, and it is fully compatible with ABS and traction control systems.”
