Vehicle Traction Tool
Rated for 50,000 pounds, GoTreads XL panels can help to dislodge vehicle tires trapped in snow, sand, or mud, supplying up to 58 inches of traction needed to drive a vehicle out. When stacked, the panels can also provide up to 4 inches of leveling under a vehicle tire. The XL variant has an extra foot of traction surface as compared to the original model. GoTreads are made of flexible, high-strength, high-impact polypropylene copolymer with special additives to make the durable plastic even tougher. The finish allows snow, sand, and mud to shake off for cleaning. Available in black, orange, hi-vis, red, blue, and magenta. A pair weighs 15 pounds and sells for $180.
