Turn off the vehicle and put it in gear. With the tool fully unfolded, lay it out in line with the tire that is stuck.
With the smooth surface of the short section down, push it between the tire and the rut.
Once properly positioned, very slowly accelerate. This allows the tire to pull the GoTreads into the rut.
Now that the tire is on a solid gripping surface, you can drive out and to a safe location.
What are GoTreads?
Go Treads ™ are a unique, patented automotive / trucking tool designed to provide the traction needed to get vehicles going again when stuck in snow, mud, or sand. This tool is the first and only tool designed specifically for large, heavy trucks but can also be used for smaller vehicles as well. The patented arched grooves help the tool stay centered under the tire while adding strength as it supports the weight of fully loaded trucks. The deep, opposing grooves grip the slippery surface and the tire to provide the necessary traction to get the vehicle moving again, safely, without damaging the tire.
The smooth finish of Go Treads allows the snow and mud to shake off for easy cleaning. Go Treads are made of flexible, high strength, high impact polypropylene copolymer with special additives to give this durable plastic even greater toughness. Yet, with all this strength, it weighs only 5.8 pounds (and it floats).
For convenient storage, GoTreads folds to an overall length of twelve inches. It takes up little space and can be kept in any handy location such as under the vehicle’s seat.
