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


  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 70 - 1 Pair - TCH70

Average Customer Rating:  4.5 out of 5 stars   (42 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.


I live in Dallas, TX so we don’t get snow but ice and sleet and available a couple times a year. I put these on my Subaru Outback and was able to drive around the local neighborhood streets that were iced over. Stopping went well a and starting did not have any wheel spin.


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.


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.

2017 Subaru Forester

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.


Shipping arrived exactly when predicted.


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!

2020 Ford Transit T250

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.

2016 Buick Envision

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.

Jim O.


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.


Don't know how it works in the snow yet but easy to use.








Does not fit over the tire even though our tire size is listed.


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.


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.


Great customer service and answered my questions within 5 minutes and then clarified further questions quickly. I was unaware of this product and it saved me having to get snow tires for a one time trip


Needed snow traction in a hurry, and etrailer came through for us.


Snow socks arrived in great condition. Actually hoping I don't have to use them, but nice to know I've got them in the event of a "snow or ice weather event"! Great service, product, and shipping.


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.


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.


They work good, this is my second set. If they rip can they be repaired?


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 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.

  • Why Is There a 30 MPH Speed Limit the ISSE Hybrid Snow Socks
    The ISSE Hybrid Snow Socks # TCH70 referenced in your question do indeed have a maximum speed rating of 30 mph. This speed limit is generally the same for any tire traction device, including snow chains and cables. The speed limit is in place because going at a higher speed can cause the sock (or chains or cables) to start to come off of the tire due to the speed. Also keep in mind that while a snow sock is going to certainly provide some additional traction in the snow, it does not provide...

  • How to Determine if Snow Socks Will Work on Car With 245/55-18 Tires
    I'm virtually certain there won't be an issue, but you can take a quick measurement to determine if you have the needed clearance on your Ford with 245/55-18 tires to see if you can use the ISSE Classic Snow Socks # TCH70. These only require you to have 1.46" (37 mm) of clearance from the top of the tire to the wheel well, and 0.59" (15 mm) from the inside of the tire to whatever the closest point is. So long as you have those clearances, you can use the ISSE Classic Snow Socks # TCH70.

  • Recommended Tire Chains For 2013 Subaru Outback
    Per the owner's manual for your 2013 Outback on page 8-11 it states you cannot use tire chains on the vehicle due to lack of clearance.

I recommend the ISSE Hybrid Snow Socks, part # TCH70. These slip over your wheel like a glove and have steel rivets on the fabric to give you the traction you need....

    Tire chain use on any vehicle is subject to the approval of the auto maker so I recommend you check your Maserati Quattroporte owner's manual for any guidance or restrictions. Often the wheel and/or tire size will affect whether chains can be used. Some cars can use chains only on one axle, or only on one of the available tire sizes offered. Since you are considering a really special motor car you will do well to make sure the tire size on it is compatible with low-profile S Class tire...

  • Can Tire Chains be Used on a 2016 Subaru Forester and Do they Go on the Front or Rear Wheels
    In the owner's manual for your 2016 Subaru Forester it states that you can use traction devices on the front wheels only just not actual chains. This means you can use cables, Snow Socks, or K-Summit chains that only go on the tread. You didn't mention the tire size you have so if they are 225/55-18 or 225/60-17 tires you can use cables # TC339DC or Snow Socks # TCH70. If the tires are a different size let me know what they are and I can make other recommendations.

    The ISSE Classic Snow Socks # TCH70 will meet the Department of Transportation requirements in all states, but they will not be very effective if you do end up hitting snow. Due to this, I tend to steer people away from this option and towards one that will get you better traction when you need it most.

The snow socks will not void your factory warranty and they will do a good jab of providing traction in light snow. The advantage that these snow socks have over a standard tire chain is that they are easy to install which you can see from the sample video and they won't ever damage the vehicles wheels.
