When you need a little help.
We know getting stuck can be stressful, especially during bad weather or in remote areas. GoTreads were created to help people help themselves out of bad situations. You can travel safer with GoTreads in your vehicle.
Invented in 1975 and manufactured since 1991, GoTreads have been helping people get unstuck for over 30 years.
Easy to Use
Put the vehicle in park and set the emergency brake before using GoTreads.
With the smooth surface down, unfold the GoTreads and center the short section as close to the stuck tire as possible.
Release brake. As you begin moving forward, SLOWLY accelerate. Drive out and to a safe place before stopping to retrieve your GoTreads.
The arched grooves help pull GoTreads into the center of travel. This keeps the traction in the middle of your tire where it provides the greatest aid.
The first two sections are grooved on one side and smooth on the other. This allows the tire to grip the top while the bottom slides along the ground and under the tire. No more digging to wedge a solid board under your tire!
GoTreads feature opposing grooves across the entire surface. Top and bottom. This grabs your tire and the ground in opposite directions creating optimal traction. GoTreads utilize the full surface area on both sides of the traction board for grip.
Designed to Flex
The patented design of GoTreads combined with our polymer formulation allows them to flex lengthwise and conform to a tire even down to -35 F (-37 C).
Modular / Expandable
GoTreads feature interchangeable parts allowing for easy, custom configurations and lengths. Mix and match to create the perfect traction tool for your specific needs.
GoTreads can double as vehicle levelers. Each panel offers 1″ of leveling. Simply fold / unfold to the desired height and drive on up. Great for roof top tents, camping trailers, and RVs. Rated for 50,000 lbs.
The articulating design of GoTreads allows them to slide into tight spaces other, rigid traction boards won’t fit without extensive digging. This design also prevents your traction device from slamming against the vehicle.
The latest iteration of GoTreads were designed for military and fleet use. They are engineered to sustain weights of up to 50,000 pounds (although many have pushed the boundaries well past that).
Compact & Portable
A standard pair of GoTreads are incredibly compact and easy to move from vehicle to vehicle. We even offer an optional storage bag for ultimate portability. No fiddling with crazy roof rack mounting systems to carry a traction device with you wherever you go.
