What’s the Difference Between Wheel Nets and What’s the Best Wheel Net for Large Tires?

Choosing a wheel net can be confusing and it’s by far one of the most common questions we get at USCC since there are so many variations of vehicles, tires, and towing applications. A few things to note: side mount wheel nets should not be used on dollies because the dolly ratchet assembly is on the front. These are used on just trailers. Also, the side mounts aren’t secure enough for a dolly in most cases; instead, all four tires should be tied down with these straps.

For securing truck tires and large tires, choose an adjustable wheel net or double adjustable wheel net. The design lets you adjust the strap around the tire to accommodate the size.

You can see this page: Wheel Nets, Auto & Car Tie Downs and Tow Dolly Straps for all of car carrier straps and supplies. We’re working on a series of wheel net videos to show the difference between the many options- keep checking back!

 

How to Loop a Lasso Strap

One of the more common questions our sales team receives is how to use a lasso strap.

Our 2″ x 10′ lasso strap with O ring can be used as a universal car tie-down strap, but lasso straps are more commonly used in hauling exotic or custom cars that have a lower clearance.

A lasso strap for car hauling can be used on the outside of the tire or through the wheel. For safety, we recommend tying down all four tires when hauling the vehicle.

The 10 foot length is longer than standard straps which are generally 8 just foot long. The 2″ width can also accept a 2″ Cordura sleeve, which can be slid to any touch point on the strap, extending its working life.

Designed with an industrial grade polyester webbing, it has a break strength of 10,000 lbs. and working load limit of 3,333 lbs.

Lasso straps are easy to use. Here our sales team member David gives a quick tutorial on how to loop a lasso strap.
