The Parma Group is currently offering a pair of commercial grade snow socks for HGV, bus and truck applications on its website, www.parmagroup.co.uk.
The snow socks are designed to be fitted to drive wheels to cover tyre in the event of traction loss in snowy and icy weather. Simply stretch the elasticated tyre cover over the wheel from the top downwards.
The snow socks are supplied in handy zip up vinyl carry bags for tidy and damp proof storage and
suitable for following tyre sizes;
- 295/80R 22.5
- 315/75R 22.5
- 315/80R 22.5
With a maximum driving speed 40km/h, the socks should only be used on snow and ice covered roads. They are not suitable for normal winter driving and recommended only for short distances where additional traction is necessary.
If you can get your hands on these snow socks for your tyres, they can help you eliminate travelling hurdles when it is snowing. Parma Group also highlights that the snow socks are made of woven fabric that is best for increasing snow and ice traction. You will have a range of options to choose from where you can also select snow socks covering the whole rim.
You can get them in pairs, and they are available for different classes of vehicles. Snow socks provide better travelling compared to snow chains. They reduce allowable speed to 30-50mph depending on the size of your car. This also depends on the brand you use, and Parma Group currently offers the best. Getting snow socks along with vehicle insurance can protect your vehicle. Additionally, if you use a motor vehicle or bike, you should also consider motorcycle insurance. Buying an insurance package and using snow socks is a smart way to protect your assets.
