Abstract:

The invention is a flexible boot that wraps around a tire to vary the tractive effect of a tire. The boot is a band with a different tread pattern on either side, and the treads may have different tractive effects depending on which way the tread rotates relative to the ground. Either tread pattern can be configured to hold the boot on the tire if that pattern faces radially inwardly on the tire.
