GoTreads are a unique, patented automotive tool designed to provide the traction needed to get vehicles going again when stuck in snow, mud, or sand. The 4 panel version offers one extra panel than our standard version for situations when you need more length. GoTreads XL provided an extra 12″ of traction and 1″ of leveling. Sold in pairs.
- 58 inches of traction.
- 4 inches of leveling.
- 9 inches wide.
For vehicles with larger tires (33″ diameter +) or those more often in extreme terrain conditions. The XL variant provides an extra foot of traction surface beneficial in these scenarios.
GoTreads were designed around one word – simple. It stores in small places. It can be put into position in a matter of seconds – no tools, no assembly, no attaching to the tire required.
The smooth finish of the tool allows the snow and mud to shake off for easy cleaning. GoTreads 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 7.2 pounds.
For the best performance, use one GoTreads tool per driving wheel on your vehicle. If you plan to off-road in 4×4, two GoTreads are typically enough used under the 2 tires spinning the most. We do have some customers who carry 4 when offloading especially in larger vehicles.

Small but mighty!
I’ve owned the original for quite a while now, and I’ve used them to “unstuck” everything from a Honda civic to a fully loaded semi truck! Great piece of gear. Only reason I bought the XL was that the stacked height is a little bit more than the original, and it’s useful as a leveling block when I’m camping in my pickup. No regrets!
Great product second set!
Great product we bought a second set. We had previously purchased a set of the standard size GoTreads about a year ago for our 4x4 class B Rv. But decided that we could use a second set in the XL size just to give us a longer length if needed when stuck, but the XL really came in handy on out last trip to the desert as levelers since the site was pretty uneven and it provides that extra height we needed. In addition, with the second set, our son can use one too when he’s out with his truck on the trails.
Best Traction Devices We’ve Used
We have a snow removal business in the Colorado High Country. Needless to say, we get stuck more than the average person. We’ve tried all variety of traction mats (3 different kinds in 7 years). We will only be using these moving forward. Their length (important), thickness, sturdiness, & tabbed front design to get under the tires make them perfect for the job. Within a couple weeks of receiving ours we used them to get several cars unstuck, one of my 9K lb plow trucks out of a ditch, & my 12K lb loader out of 2 shady situations all without using a recovery line. You still need to shovel a bit to get the mats in place & you should use 4 if you want to be sure to get out on your own. We have 4 in each of our primary plow vehicles. We will likely get 4 more for our other trucks & loaders as the other devices we have slowly get destroyed. If you don’t want to call a tow truck & aren't off the edge of a cliff, these are the ticket.
Perfect for Nissan NV 2500 van conversion
We have a high roof Nissan NV 2500 that we are in the process of converting to a campervan. It’s small for a campervan, so we have to be very judicious about everything we bring. The rule of thumb is that everything should have at least two purposes. Up til now we have just used 2 scraps of wood to level the van at the campsites we’ve visited. But while the wood had worked, I was pretty sure we were going to encounter a campsite that needed more leveling than just an inch or two, and worried that with rear-wheel drive we’d get stuck at some point in mud or snow. I was watching a YouTube video by a van lifer who mentioned these, and when I went looking for them online I was happy to see the compact size and dual purpose, so I ordered them. My husband wasn’t happy when I told him what they cost, but these ticked all the right boxes: compact (always the most important consideration in such a small van), multiple heights (allowing more than just stacked wood), and dual-purpose (wood won’t get us out of snow or mud). And so, hubby found a perfect spot for them and we brought them along on short trip to Vermont last week. Lo and behold! Our campsite was the least level we’ve encountered in this van and we needed to use the full height of these babies on both rear wheels. It was funny figuring out how best to configure them (lots of clacking), but we got it and managed to perch the van up on them. This required good communication and teamwork because they are not exactly huge and would be easy to over-shoot in this high configuration. You need to be pretty precise and that was a little nerve-wracking, but in the end it wasn’t a big deal, and they are sufficiently big for the tires to sit comfortably on them. They held beautifully and we were, as they say, happy campers. It rained a little so we hosed ‘em off when we were ready to go, and packed them back in their perfect little spot. I’d have put them in the carry bag, but our van configuration requires us to split them up, so sadly we can’t use the bag. Still, these are a terrific addition to our van build. We only have space to bring what we neeeeeeed, and these will always come with us from now on.
