Default Anyone use Autosocks?

My English coworker swears by them for his A4 Avant. Apparently they're the hot thing in Europe.

The only time I see snow is if we drive 4 hours to go skiing - so these seem easier to keep and store long term than chains.

I've never seen anyone on the Audi boards use these. Mostly cause our cars are capable w/out this crap as long as you get an awesome set of Winter tires.

um, ok chief.

So for someone who doesn't live in snow, and would want an emergency option if they went on a winter vacation....

Thank you so much for this post. I am in this same boat. If you had to pick one Zchain or Autosock which would it be? I have a 2019 Q7 with 285/35-22 wheels and trying to figure out which snow chains or equivalent to go with. A bit scared to use the Z chain in case of rubbing on the rim and damaging the finish. Hence the Autosock seems like a better play. Any thoughts and or pictures would be greatly appreciated.
