LUTON, UNITED KINGDOM – Nov 28, 2012: For those looking for something less bulky and awkward than snow chains to deal with the expected winter weather, Vauxhall retailers are once again offering their customers Autosock Snow Socks, tyre covers to get you out of a slippery situation in snowy and icy conditions.

Vauxhall was one of the first vehicle manufacturers to offer Autosock Snow Socks, which are priced from 49.95 RRP and can be used on all makes and models. They simply slip over the driving wheels of your vehicle and work by creating friction with the road surface.

Insurers paid out 530 million to motorists in 2010, with 278,000 claims made during the heavy snow falls and plummeting temperatures, many of which were due to motorists driving on slippery roads – a figure that could be reduced by the extra grip of Autosock Snow Socks.

“It’s often difficult to avoid driving on snow and ice during the winter months,” said Sophie Thomas, Vauxhall Accessories Manager. “For the journeys we have to make, whether it’s getting home from work or picking the kids up from school, Autosock Snow Socks provide extra grip that could make all the difference when the roads are slippery.”

In addition, Vauxhall retailers are offering a range of Autoglym products, this includes De-Icer and Concentrated Screenwash, both available from 3.99 at participating retailers, which will help to keep your windscreen clear and give you a better view when behind the wheel.
