Snow and ice has arrived across the UK and temperatures are expected to stay low for the next few days.
For those drivers who decided against fitting winter tyres this year it can mean treacherous conditions and a lack of grip and traction on slippery surfaces.
However, Perrys Vauxhall dealerships are now stocking an affordable, easy-to-carry alternative to winter tyres – Vauxhall snow socks.
The socks are fabric covers for wheels that can be slid on to improve traction in snow for short journeys and at lower speeds.
Although not as durable as winter tyres the snow socks are less bulky than snow chains and more flexible because they can be stored in the car and used only when needed.[YouTube:D5pbMLDgx4A]
Available in a variety of sizes to fit all Vauxhall cars from the tiny Vauxhall Adam to the vast Vauxhall Zafira Tourer, the snow socks start from just £49.95.
As experts predict up to three weeks of winter, Vauxhall drivers are being advised to consider Vauxhall snow socks for their car in order to provide extra grip.
Vauxhall says it was one of the first car manufacturers to offer a range of snow socks and interest in the winter-battling accessories has been high at Perrys Vauxhall dealerships.
Meanwhile, Vauxhall is also urging drivers to book a winter maintenance check at a Perrys service centre to ensure cars are in fully working order when the cold weather hits.
