GoTreads are made out of a polypropylene copolymer blend. A material that remains flexible down to -35 F degrees.
The hinge pins are made from corrosion resistant coated steel.
Materials used in GoTreads are from USA manufacturers.
Occasionally, people inquire about our decision not to incorporate metal spikes into our traction mats, as some other manufacturers do. Metal spikes were never included in our initial design due to the potential for tire or vehicle damage. GoTreads are constructed from a durable material that is both tough yet sacrificial, specifically engineered to protect vehicles from damage. Their purpose is to melt when subjected to extreme friction in order to safeguard your tire from melting. In high-impact situations, they are designed to compress or break before causing vehicle damage. The modular nature of GoTreads makes them simple to repair. It’s wiser to spend $15 on a part replacement instead of $300 on a tire replacement.
