The only issue with putting them on is you need some clearance to get your arms into the wheel well. Lowered cars need not apply. They do self-center quite well.
They also make these for semis and I believe they're approved in some states as an alternate to chains on rigs.
They're slick woven fabric on the outside which makes it even more interesting as to how they work. I kept them in my G35's trunk in case of super deep snow or a hill I knew I couldn't get over. The socks proved that those obstacles were nothing. They basically drive/handle like true winter/snow tires.
