    By far the best and easiest way to get around in the snow is to have a) 4 wheel drive, if not then all wheel drive would be 2nd option here, followed by front wheel drive, b) snow tires or all season tires, c) traction and stability control systems, but most important above all of these is d) know the roads where you are going and find alternate routes to your destination to avoid hills, uphill starts and downhill stops if at all possible. Also drive SLOW.

    @SuperJasonireland
    Just as with snow chains, the rope should be removed when driving on roads that are free of snow. Without snow it wears quickly but will not damage the tyre.

    Good and highly effective Idea I have done this before I live in Scotland, the police told me it was illegal, they say the rope can snap and either hit a pedestrian or burst a brake pipe on the car.

    On compacted snow …
    On compacted snow the ropes show hardly any signs of wear, but (as with chains) as soon as you drive on tarmac or chippings they deteriorate rapidly, so the length of time they last depends more on where you drive rather than how far you drive. It’s best to change the ropes when they show signs of fraying rather than have them break and become entangled…..and yes, I have often seen those puzzled faces!!

    Great video and I can only imagine the puzzled look on the 4×4 drivers seeing your KIA moving in an effortless straight line :-)
    What is the wear and tear like ? How long would they last ?
