At Maxigrip AB we manufacture and sell the MaxiGrip stud for tyres and shoes, which is sold via leading distributors around the world. MaxiGrip was founded in 2006 in Kalmar and operated there until July 2016 when the company was acquired by Niso Teknik AB and moved to the town of Grästorp, about 100 km from Gothenburg.
All manufacturing takes place in Sweden using the highest quality materials.
Our concept is to screw a special stud directly into the rubber surface on the tyre. You can do this easily with our patented fitting tool and a standard cordless screwdriver. If you don’t have the time or inclination to fit them yourself your local garage or workshop will certainly be able to help you.
Heavy-duty vehicles like tractors, construction vehicles and trucks used by municipalities, snow clearers, building contractors and farmers often have problems with slding in the wintertime. The most common alternative has been to use snow chains, but they are difficult to fit and driving becomes bumpy and uncomfortable. The chains also wear both the vehicle and the road.
Another option is to fit normal tyre studs, ones that are pressed into the tyre. The disadvantage with this alternative is that it requires two sets of tyres as it is a permanent solution. Slippery conditions can suddenly occur and maybe there isn’t a garage or workshop in the vicinity.
