Thanks for that, might keep a set in the van just in case
They look more substantial than fiamma grip mats for the same money.
looks good, has anybody tried them.
They arent on sale until sunday.....unless aldi offered them in a past promo, but i never saw them before.
Mind you, don't fancy trying to get them back in that bag covered in sh*t n snot
Then after you've got yourself out of the poo, you can sit down on a nice warm seat with a steaming cuppa
I picked some up on the last promo as a "just in case" Not had to use them yet
Stuff the bag....a bang on the ground to get the worst off then straight in a locker.
the rebagging comes later when they are dry.
As said above they must be horrible to handle and pack away after using on mud especially, you can bet your luck they will get used on somebody else who is stuck and hasn't got any, they then vanish with a wave leaving you with the mess
edit PJ's response is maybe better and a little less cynical than mine
Must have missed that week.
I bought some £150 snow chains 2 years ago.....still aint used those either.
in fact just 2 days ago i tried fitting one for the first time.....2 minute doddle.
Had a look at these when they had them on offer last year and I have to say they are tiny!! Personally I think they would disappear without trace if you tried to use them under a motorhome wheel.
I think they may be OK for a small car but not much else, IMHO don't go out of your way to get some.
bred crates are fine but I don't even have them now
I guess putting some twine on them and laying that at right angles so they don't get tied up in the tyres or mud (so much) would make them easier to pick up. If things are too bad I'd probably just keep moving until on firm ground and then make a decision if to go back for them or not.
Just taken them out of the bag to see how substantial they are. I think they'd do the job but the instructions only mention snow and/or sand. Not mud. Last lot of snow I got stuck in I had to, ahem, sacrifice some local tree and bush branches as I'd not purchased these at that time - but it was one of those times I probably would have left these plastic tracks behind as the road I was trying to join was up hill and the tracks wouldn't have been a danger to any other road users - but a nice find for someone after the snow had melted
I would tie abut five to six feet of rope on to them and tye to front towing eye so once going and out of tubal
you just un tie then from you front towing eye
the rope pulls them out the mud and they trale under van till on solid ground
A lot bigger than the fiamma mats.
these are 125cm long, 60cm wide and 18mm deep.
fiamma appear to be 75cm long 23cm wide and 3mm deep
Papajohn can you point me to the link you have then, as the link at the start of the thread says they are 60cm long 18cm wide and 1.25cm deep.
The tyres on my van are 215x70x15 that says to me that these tyre traction tracks are 35cm narrower than my tyres.
Same here. We have a set from Argos as well. Bought before we had the cut down bread crates and now in the garage somewhere.
Muddy ones can always be put in a black bin bag temporarily.
The ones we saw before in Aldi were indeed very insubstantial looking and we did decide that they'd be not much use in mud - but I think you are getting your mm and cm mixed up dear - if they were over a foot (which is near as damn it 30cm) narrower than the van tyres I'd be - somewhat! - surprised. LOL
Being an inquisitive sort of person, I was just wondering where Wizzer59 goes to drive in s**t and snot. Let me know I don't want to go there.
