SnoBootz Tire Chain Alternative
Tire Chains Alternative
Quick and Easy Installation
The unique, patent-pending design of Snobootz allows you to install them on your tires in just a couple of minutes. Just drape them over the top of your tires, roll the vehicle forward until the split is at the top, then attach the hook & loop fastener. Reduced installation time means less exposure to roadside hazards for even greater safety.
Fits Vehicles with Tight Clearances
Many vehicles can’t use regular snow chains because of tight clearances between the tire and strut. Snobootz are constructed of a heavy-duty coated cloth that wraps continuously around the tire, so it’s thin, light, and strong. It can be installed on most vehicles, even those with tight clearances like most front wheel-drive cars.
Embedded Steel Claws Give Outstanding Traction on Ice
Icy roads present the greatest hazard to driving safety. Not even studless snow tires with four-wheel drive can grip on pure ice. But Snobootz can! Each traction pad on the Snobootz has two steel claws that bite into the ice, providing unsurpassed grip. The spacing of the traction pads on the tire ensures that there’s always metal in contact with the ground for maximum safety.
For proof of the Snobootz’ grip, the image below shows how they enable a car to climb a 10% grade of pure ice!
Won’t Damage your Tires or Wheels
Snobootz are constructed of tough, plastic-coated industrial fabric. Metal doesn’t contact your tire sidewalls or wheels, completely eliminating the chance of damaging your expensive wheels and tires.
Unlike chains, Snobootz only use metal where absolutely necessary—where the "rubber meets the road." If a cross-chain fails on snow chains, the chain will whip your chassis or fender brutally, causing expensive damage. In the very remote chance that the Snobootz fail, it will fall harmlessly to the ground, not causing any damage to your vehicle.
One-Third the Weight of Snow Chains
Due to their unique cloth construction, Snobootz are about one-third the weight of regular snow chains. As a result, they’re easier to handle and install. Unlike chains, they won’t tangle up into an icy, rusted ball of metal! Just roll them up and put them back into their durable storage bag for later cleaning and use.
Durable Even on Dry Pavement
Unlike competitive products where only cloth touches the road, Snobootz uses molded rubber pads to contact the pavement. The rubber is molded of the same type of compound used for tire treads, so it’s very durable. They’ve been independently tested to endure over 180 miles on dry pavement... farther than metal chains can handle.
