Regions with unpredictable weather often require vehicles, both commercial and regular, to carry tire chains. In North America, the United States and most of Europe, AutoSock meets chain requirements at a fraction of the weight, size and cost.

United States

Chain laws vary state-by-state and seasonally. Some states do not have chain laws at all, while others can invoke emergency declarations that supersede state statue. AutoSock is currently approved or permissible in every state. Details and documentation.


With the exception of Quebec, tire chains are mostly allowed "as needed" in Canada. AutoSock is specifically approved in all western states and provinces with tire chain laws, including British Columbia. Please contact your local distributor for details and documentation.
