They worked great when used and fit quicker and far easier than Snow socks (which I have also used). They are just expensive ... but not anywhere near as expensive as winter tyres and wheels.
I love Thule products! They may be expensive but are superbly designed and very durable products. I am considering a set along with the winter tyres already fitted.
