Vauxhall dealers are offering snow socks over the winter period from £49.95 which can help provide traction in icy and snowy road conditions.
The snow socks slip on over standard tyres.
Many car manufacturers have developed winter tyre programmes following last year’s heavy snow fall. Some snow fall in certain areas of the UK this week has prompted further activity from tyre suppliers and manufacturers on the dangers of driving in cold conditions.
Vauxhall says its snow are made from a textured fabric that sticks to dry snow and ice, the fibres on the covers are arranged at right angles in the direction of travel in order to optimise grip on the road.
