 FOR ICE, SNOW, AN EASY-ON, EASY-OFF EFFECTIVE,
 SAFE ALTERNATIVE TO CHAINS
 SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Skiers love 'em. So do mothers and just about anyone else who must drive in ice and snow. They're the descriptively named Spikes-Spider traction device you clip on your tires.
 These are light, polyurethane and ABS plastic attachments anyone can put on the tires of a car or van without even having to move it, according to Shri Doraiswamy, of Right National Distributors, their primary distributor.
 "Among their many advantages is that they can be clipped on the tires of almost any car, including the smaller ones which lack the clearance for chains," said Doraiswamy.
 Tires with studs, which provide ultimate traction, are no longer used but the tungsten carbide studs on Spikes-Spider have been approved in 35 states and four Canadian provinces.
 "It's not feasible to put on tires with studs every time it snows and take them off again when the roads are cleared but that's exactly what you do with the Spikes-Spider," said Doraiswamy. "That's why they've been approved almost everywhere, most recently in California."
 Possibly their most significant advantage, Doraiswamy said is that Spikes-Spider can be clipped on in a few minutes, far less time that it takes to put on chains.
 "And there is no need to raise, lower or move the vehicle," Doraiswamy said. "This easy-on, easy-off attribute makes them particularly appealing to corporate fleets."
 Designed by Swiss engineers, Spikes-Spider is priced depending on size of vehicle and tire but average about $250 per car. They are available nationally by phoning, faxing or writing Right National Distributors, 140 Geary St., Suite 901, San Francisco, CA 94108, phone 510-623-0651, fax: 415-362-8158.
