Just in case anyone wanted to see this one.
I saw last year that not only are there 'auto socks' where it's a soft fabric that goes over your tires to aid traction in deep snow but there are essentially zip tie snow chains as well.
The commercial product seems to just be a large zip tie with a tread area built in. I really liked this idea as being easy to install, easy to carry, lightweight, and near universal.
I decided to test it with just store bought 36" zip ties.
Unfortunately neither the DIY zip tie snow chains nor the commercial product seems to be a life saver. I'm sure if it's a last resort it's worth trying but I imagine there are better methods of getting un stuck.
I had the snow tires on for this test. They are Michelin X Ice 3 in stock size on stock rims. Mostly because I still have them from when I was driving often into higher elevations but it was difficult to get stuck to begin with with the Gen 5.
Hope this inspires someone to make a good product with a similar idea! Make it work somebody.
