    Poor AT tyre performance in snow

    Any ideas how to get this off?

    During the road trip round Norway the van got covered in road dirt-drivers side mainly so it’s stuff from the edge of the road. Not cleaned it because I was waiting for the hose pipe ban to end.

    Snow-Sock Vs Chains

    A mate and I are going to take the camper to the Alps in March for some skiing. Previously I’ve use chains on cars but quite fancy the idea of socks made by Autosocks as they are approved for use in France. Has anyone got any experience of using them on their van in the snow? Many thanks.
