Rez Zircon: Very interesting concept. I live in Montana and I use tire chains a lot in winter but I drive a dually and getting chains on and off is hell. This would be so much easier. I think the other comments' complaints are fixable. 1) Snow chains ride rough, this wouldn't be any worse (probably better), and you are never supposed to go faster than 25MPH regardless, nor drive on dry pavement. 2) Probably the best construction for the 'wings' would be ribbed steel. Injection molded plastic will not hold up to the tens of thousands of PSI that tires develop, not even structural plastic, and it would become brittle in the cold (I have had to use chains when the temperature is below -25C). Also, if the wings are made of steel, it could be made so a broken wing can be replaced by the user. Likewise the center should be all metal, not plastic. Trust me, plastic will NOT hold up under the conditions where we use chains. 3) As to flying off, I think the flange on the back needs to be deeper. At least two inches of grip down the side of the tire. One inch is not enough, it will come off when the tire flexes over any bump. With a metal flange, the inside flange should be covered in rubber (same rubber as tires are made of) to prevent tire damage. I think this is a great idea, it just needs to be implemented so it actually works under real-world conditions. People use chains under tough conditions, not so much for regular driving. The device's construction has to take that into account.

Coleman Adamson: My issue how would you get them tight enough to keep from flying off? Just a little plastic knob even with a rubber loop grip wrench won't be tight enough.

luna21kouta: Super. Where can I buy snow chains?

andres felipe Velasquez: What program did you use for animations ?

Tommy Taylor: Ugh, sorry that looks an awful lot like the Maggi quick trak or the Thule K-summit snow chains, except they're better because they don't wrap around the back of the tire…

TIMEtoRIDE900: How about a tire that has studs on the edges?? You deflate the tire to 18 PSI and the steel engages AND you have a bigger footprint. When the road is better, you re-inflate.

emdman1959: While it looks easier to put on than the stupid tire sock it is still another stupid useless invention. if your going to drive in the snow and live where there is snow most of the year buy yourself a good set of snow tires.

spadri1: muuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuy bueno

ahmet ahmety: ıyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy

syl tau: Super. Where can I buy snow chains?

GabboWozHere: bravo!

NorthwesternNL: Why did they put it on the front wheels of a bmw xD

CLÉBER VERÍSSIMO BORTOLUZZI: [] Universo [ i ]; Autor, ¹Cléber Bortoluzzi;

justin hensley: your has alot of potential

oliver peimbert: Its a nice idea, but not workable. It looks very flimsy and breakable. The ride will be bumpy.

Alberto Burchiu: i was thinking of something like this 7 yeas ago, even made some drawings , never had the money to actually do a prototype tho

Enzo Catalogna: Bella trovata! ma x la misura -larghezza-dei pneumatici?Sepoi vai sull asfalto non si rovinano??

Julio B. Figueroa: I like this. Sure beats having to get out the car and driving over chains to get them on.

1emanres: It's a bad design. It would come off and tear the body panels from your car, just like chains. What we need is something like Japanese ice tires but with a six year warranty. Ice tires are made of soft gel rubber and work well but will wear out in a single season (or in a single day or less if driven on dry roads). What is needed is a new kind of tire tread and material that will provide excellent traction on snow, slush or foot thick ice, has automatic cleat tip retraction and endures summer.

Eugen Afanasjev: @charlypb Wouldn't it be too stiff? I mean it needs to be stiff to keep itself on the wheel, but soft enough not to disintegrate while deforming. Plus temperature changes shouldn't affect it's stiffness. It should be also soft enough as not to crack on the pavement, and stiff enough for snow/ice to grip. I can't think of any existing material that could do all this.

Carlos Palacios: @markskate69 if you can not see the difference, is because you have never installed any!! Furthermore, this project is meant to be built by injection molding, so would be much cheaper...

ChuckChazCharles: thats awesome dude!

Carlos Palacios: No! Ya me gustaría a mi, pero no se llevo a cabo la producción.

Carlos Palacios: Unfortunately...Is not in the market, is just a final student project. thanks

NorthwesternNL: @charlypb Still a very nice concept.

Sacha R: /watch?v=G_hndafrj9k

Carlos Palacios: Ovviamente! E stato progettato per resistere a un breve periodo di tempo su asfalto, come qualsiasi altra catena da neve. Ma è destinato solo per la neve.

Mitika Dumitru: @NorthwesternNL because xD is an 4x4, it`s better to be mounted on the steering front tires

wudgee: Where can I buy these in the UK please? They look fantastic!

syl tau: Toll.Wo kann man diese Schneeketten kaufen?

marc m. serna: it's called spikes spiders...

NorthwesternNL: @relat1v if it's 4x4 it doesn't even need snowchains :') Besides, BMW always has more torque going to the back wheels (38-62), so it would be stupid to put them on the front wheels :') Also on this type of BMW the front wheels dont lock when the spin difference is too great, and the back wheels did. It's not the same as Audi's quattro system... lol

lilsquirt8995: That would be one hell of a bumpy ride

Sacha R: Si, está más que inventando hace más de 5 años: /watch?v=G_hndafrj9k

vincbestia: nothing beats he sound and destruction of real chains^^

Carlos Palacios: @NorthwesternNL haha you are right! is a little photoshop mistake :P

januseski: Great concept ! Congrats.

Carlos Palacios: Sorry, I really appreciate your comment! but unfortunately is a student project, so it is not in stores! :(

brandt19699: I bet this has never made it through the computer graphics stage because it's such an impractical idea. This will never work.

Greg Épine: That is a sexy tire.

selim chicco: Cool Video !! For the Braders Support 81 Hells Angels Triebute Video youtube.com/watch?v=qreAu3RQXs­8

tarheelveteran: I wish I had a set of these when I lived in Central WA. The old chains were a pain in the butt and chewed up my hands. There doesn't look like a lot of clearance at 5 and 7 o'clock. Are they much more expensive than the old chains?

Terry Watkins: Well, kinda neat idea , but only if your searching for your cat in your bedroom, tried it last night in creek behind my house, I think most people will be disappointed in the field of view, I was , range was maybe 20 to 30 yards, really kinda a novelty unless your looking at coon on back porch. So I guess it has its uses but I will probably return mine
