Note: The ISSE Classic snow socks are not designed to be used on bare roads. Only use snow socks on snowy or icy surfaces.


ISSE Classic snow socks help you safely drive on treacherous roads by increasing traction for your tires. These snow socks are constructed of thick, durable polyolefin, making them long-lasting and extremely effective in ice and snow. The snow socks are designed in Europe and are made to meet the Colorado Department of Transportation specifications.


ISSE Classic Snow Socks vs. Snow Chains

Snow chains can be bulky and difficult to handle, and metal chains can freeze your fingers in cold weather. Tire chains also create noise and vibration while you are driving. When installing and removing chains, you have to be careful to not scratch your car or damage your wheels, especially on cars with limited wheel well clearance.


These snow socks feature a low-profile design and a lightweight construction that make them easy to handle and install. Their soft material won't damage your custom wheels. And their even surface produces no vibration or noise, making for a smooth, quiet ride.


How Classic Snow Socks Work

Your car slides on wintry roads due to a thin layer of water between your tires and the snow or ice. The friction of your tires against the ground melts the snow and ice just enough to create this lubricant. The result is a surface that is slick, which causes your tires to lose traction.


These snow socks are made of a fabric that captures this layer of water. By removing this lubricant, the snow socks are able to use dry friction to restore traction for your vehicle's tires. This occurs in part because the slippery layer of water is effectively wicked away. In addition, once the water is captured by the socks, the snow on the road will begin to stick to the wet fabric of the snow socks. This inhibits the snow from melting. So you get better traction not only because the lubricating layer is gone, but also because of the friction that occurs between the snow now stuck to the snow socks and the snow on the ground.


This method of restoring traction is quite effective. Unlike snow chains, which have metal links or spikes that dig into snow and ice to provide grip, these snow socks rely on friction to increase traction. And the strong, tightly woven polyolefin fabric covers the entire surface of each tire to ensure the most friction possible.


How to Install Classic Snow Socks

  1. With your vehicle in park, stretch the snow sock over the top of a tire on the drive axle.
  2. Pull the sock down over as much of the tire as possible.
  3. Slowly move the car forward 1/2 of a tire revolution, keeping the wheels straight.
  4. Stretch the sock over the remaining bare section of the tire.
  5. As you drive, the snow socks will center themselves.

How to Remove Classic Snow Socks

  1. Pull the snow sock away from the tire and down to the ground.
  2. Slowly move your car backward until the sock is completely free of the tire.
  3. Store the snow socks in your trunk until next use. Or take them home and wash them in your washing machine.

Class S Designation

SAE Class S tire chains and traction devices are designed for use on vehicles with restricted wheel well clearance. Certain newer cars, vans, and small trucks - especially those with large, aftermarket tires - may require Class S traction devices.


SAE Class S Clearances

These snow socks will fit your tires provided there is both:

  • A - a minimum of 1.46" (37 mm) between the top of the tire tread and the wheel well
  • B - at least 0.59" (15 mm) between the tire's sidewall and the vehicle itself.

How to Choose Snow Socks for Your Vehicle

To choose the right snow socks, you must match your tire size. Those measurements can be found on the side of your tire.


Tire size on sidewall

185/60-15

  1. (185) - indicates tire width in millimeters
  2. (60) - gives you the aspect ratio (sidewall height as percentage of width)
  3. (15) - denotes the diameter of the wheel rim in inches

ISSE Classic Snow Socks - Size 62 - 1 Pair - TCH62

Average Customer Rating:  4.4 out of 5 stars   (27 Customer Reviews)

Durable, long-lasting polyolefin snow socks will help you safely navigate snowy or icy roads by creating superior traction for your tires. Low-profile design produces no noise or vibration for a smooth ride.

2009 Toyota Prius

Purchased for the safety of traveling through mountains out west. Have to have it in slippery conditions or state patrol won’t let you proceed. Light to pack, easy stowage, relatively easy to install, but unlike chains is tough fabric. Unsure how effective they work as we did not have need to use. More of insurance to have than not.



by:

Not impressed with this product at all. If you are driving on snow, meaning absolutely no pavement or rough surface, they may be useful... but a short distance after the chain requirement point mine were shredded and all but useless.


Comments
Im not sure what type of road surface you were driving on when your snow socks shredded, but they arent meant for use on bare pavement, only on snow or ice.

Have not used them often but, they do the job. Not used them in deep snow either.
So far no complaints and they do not require lots storage area. My mini is short on space.

Honestly I can’t believe how well these work. I was able to cruse up steep snow packed roads with ease.

Review from a similar ISSE Hybrid Snow Socks in Tire Chains


Wow. I was hoping these would work as reviewed and they did! Living on a hill, these socks saved me from sliding all the way home. My tires lost traction on a snowy hill; I pulled over and relatively quickly (and easily!) slipped the snow covers over my tires. Once on, I completed my drive down the snow covered road in control. My husband's going to get a pair (he was impressed how well they worked) and I plan to get these for my adult children. Well worth the cost and peace of mind knowing I have these in my car.

Review from a similar ISSE Hybrid Snow Socks in Tire Chains


Watch the sizing folks. The web site said to get size 74 for our 225/60/18 tires but when they arrived, the size chart on the package said size 70 was needed. I hope this was fixed on the web site. etrailer was very good about understanding the problem and returning the original package, sending me a pre-paid return label for the UPS guy. I ordered the new ones after they received the originals and credited my account. Easily a five star rating if it were not for the step of returning and reordering.

We bought tire socks for our Subaru because the owners manual says NOT to use chains. But, when snowing in the mountains of Oregon, chains are sometimes required. We'll probably be fine without, being all wheel drive, but the police don't think so. There are hefty fines for driving without at least having chains in your possession.

I have not used the product yet, but they look exactly as represented on the website. Small enough to keep in the trunk storage compartment through the winter. Etrailer had them shipped and delivered within 3 days. Always great service!

Review from a similar ISSE Hybrid Snow Socks in Tire Chains


I ordered these just to have on hand as we prepare for a winter trip to the southwest. I can't really testify as to how they work because I have yet to use them but etrailer is once again a pleasure to work with.

Review from a similar ISSE Hybrid Snow Socks in Tire Chains


Terrible decision to get these. They were supposed to fit on my tires (based on the specs). When I needed them in a bad snowstorm, I could not go more than 20 MPH. They would slide off one side or the other. I was blocking traffic trying to get them to stay on. Had to nurse the car without these or chains to an auto shop and buy a set of cables that fit. Had to go over the I-80 Donner Summit from Truckee and would not have made it with these "snow socks". I would be happy to sell these once used socks for half of what I paid for them.

Review from a similar ISSE Hybrid Snow Socks in Tire Chains


I haven't had a chance to use the product, but I did test the fit and they certainly install easy enough. I occasionally have to drive from the coast over the mountains to into the valley and during the winter we are required by law to carry chains or something similar on 2-wheel drive vehicles...and the storms can come seemingly out of nowhere in the high elevations...so now I am prepared. The construction of these is very good.

Not to mention, the customer service from etrailer was very good. Initially there was a slight problem with the delivery date, but they managed to rectify that without any problems. Thank you.

Review from a similar ISSE Hybrid Snow Socks in Tire Chains


While I have not yet utilized the tire socks, the biggest reason to have them is simply to be compliant with the law where chains must be carried. For that purpose the product is perfect! Super light weight and far less of a hassle than dealing with steel cables or chains.

Review from a similar ISSE Hybrid Snow Socks in Tire Chains


I would like to say great but I have not needed them. Ran into snow several times last yr but my XC90 just plowed thru without a problem. I have a friend who used them last yr - took about 5 min to put them on and we had good traction in icy hardpack. I still keep them in the car just in case. Would not be without them.

This review is for the basic ordering of the product. We haven't needed to use the snow socks yet so can't comment on the product. We were able to order and receive the items with ease and in a timely fashion. We received what we ordered. YAY

Review from a similar ISSE Hybrid Snow Socks in Tire Chains


First, these are for a trip in January, so I have not used them yet, but what I can say at this point is that I'm very happy to have found something that will work on my Forester which has no clearance for chains or most cables. The Forester is great for snow, but nothing is great on black ice, so these will provide some added safety if needed. Etrailer's excellent online guidance led me to these. Thank you.

Review from a similar ISSE Hybrid Snow Socks in Tire Chains


Living in Arizona we don't have a lot of use for these when we do need them it is critical that they can go on easily and work. This is one of the few places I could send my tire size and have the unit match pacifically for my tires which gives me peace of mind knowing that when I do have to use them they will fit.

Five star is for the service I received and the fact that the product arrived in a timely manner and fit as advertised. I tried them on the car and they were a piece of cake to install.


Comments
Have not had to use them. I have a Buick Envision with AWD and all season tires, which does not permit the use of chains. I bought the snow socks as insurance and to meet the requirement that I have chains onboard even though I am not required to use them.

  • Can ISSE Snow Socks be Used on a Gravel Road
    The ISSE Hybrid snow socks like # TCH62 are not designed to be used on bare roads. Only use snow socks on snowy or icy surfaces. If there was enough snow on the gravel roads to warrant the use of the socks they would be fine.

  • Can Snow Socks be Used on a 2006 Scion xB with Studded Tires
    Though the ISSE Hybrid Snow Socks # TCH62 will fit studded tires the studs will likely damage the snow socks, especially if you were to run into any spots on the road that didn't have snow. They same could be said for tire chains; the studs could damage them. If you are going to use Snow Socks or chains I do recommend putting the regular tires back on your 2006 Scion xB.

    If your 2016 Ford Focus has tire size 195/65-15 sized tires the Snow Socks # TCH62 are confirmed to fit. The other factory tire sizes for your Focus do not have Snow Socks to fit. There are no Snow Socks confirmed to fit the factory tire size 215/55-16 for your 2016 Ford Transit Connect. If you can tell me both vehicle's tire sizes I'll check if there are any Snow Socks for those particular tires.

However with that being said, we certainly understand certain states and conditions require the use of them therefore the choice will be ultimately up to you.

    It looks from my research like you have 205/55R16 or 205/50R17 size tires on your 2012 Subaru Impreza WRX hatchback. The only alternative to chains I can recommend for your vehicle is the Titan Chain ISSE Hybrid Snow Socks - Size 62 - 1 Pair, # TCH62. The snow socks cover your tire to deliver traction when driving on snowy or icy roads. The fabric sticks to snow and ice creating friction to provide grip.

    For a tire sock that is compatible with the P255/40-17 tires on your 2000 BMW 5 Series you will need to use ISSE Hybrid Snow Socks part # TCH62.

  • Will Snow Socks Work Taking Off from a Dead Stop on a Hill in a 2015 Kia Forte
    The Snow Socks # TCH62 will eventually grip but are probably not the best option for taking off from a stop on a hill. I recommend something that offers more traction such as # TH00023090 for tire size 205/55-16. I also recommend having some ice melt in the vehicle so before you leave you can place it in front of and behind the tires and let it melt the snow and ice some while the car warms up.

Therefore, this leaves you with two options which are snow socks or snow cables. The ISSE Hybrid Snow Socks part # TCH62 will be a confirmed fit as long as you have the standard 225/40-18 tires.

  • Will K-Summit Tire Chains Fit on a 2015 Mini Cooper with 205/45-17 Tires and 14mm Lug Nuts
    First we need to make sure that what you are measuring is the same as what the K-Summit lug nut adapters fit. The 17 and 19 millimeters is referring to the outside dimension of the lug nut itself and not the size wheel bolt that it fits on. If your lug nuts are indeed 14mm then the K-Summit chains # TH02230K22 would not fit and there isn't a 14mm adapter. The option that requires the second least amount of clearance is the Snow Socks # TCH62.
