Front Fabric

The woven and coated net stabilizes the entire AutoSock and prevents snow or debris from gathering between the tire and the road contact fabric.

Road Contact Fabric

The unique fabric construction, provides a long product life and an outstanding friction. The arranged fibres facilitate the textile to absorb any water between the ground and the tire, thereby maximizing the dry friction grip.

Inner Fabric

Usually used for high quality parachutes, the inner fabric holds AutoSock in position, assures proper fit on the tire and supports the black elastic strap to reach its ideal position behind the tire for optimal tension.


The elastic keeps the tire sock in position, supports self-centering and assures stable fit to the tire. The combination of tenacity, elongation force and elasticity for best performance was evaluated in extensive tests during the development of AutoSock.
