Driving in the rain can be dangerous, but more often than not, we’re just as concerned about driving AFTER the rain, too. What happens after a torrential down pour? Every back road you come across is pure mud. And trying to drive across these muddy roads means you’re setting yourself up for a major pain in the neck: getting your tires stuck.

It’s like a country song without any of the fun bits, basically.

Getting your tires stuck in mud is one of the most annoying and messy situations your car can get into, and it’s not a difficult thing to do. If you live in an area with especially difficult terrain then you completely understand how easy it is to get caught up in a patch of mud.

The worst part is when you try and try to get out, but the more you rev your engine, the deeper you sink into the ground.

So what are you supposed to do? You could cry, call a friend, phone roadside assistance, or try to dig yourself out…most likely to no avail. Well, now there’s a solution to your muddy woes that is a guaranteed fix!

This invention is one we’ve been waiting for; it’ll be a lifesaver to all of us who enjoy off-roading or backwoods drives. It’s a simple iron wheel, which snaps easily onto your tire with detachable steel bolts. Once it’s snapped on, gently urge your car forward and you’ll see that the strong second wheel is enough to lift your tire from the hole you’ve created.

It’s a truly brilliant idea, perfect for anyone who is sick and tired of getting stuck in the mud. And who isn’t, honestly?

As you’ll see in the video below, it might take a couple tries to effectively lift your car out of the hole. But using this little beauty and your car’s own power, it’s definitely possible to roll out of any ditch. Make sure to watch that video below to see this amazing wheel in action.

A similar contraption is called the Trac Grabber, which is a strap that goes around your tire to more firmly grip the ground and push your car out of the terrain. The Trac Grabber works in mud as well as snow and sand. Whichever you chose, these inventions are an essential safety tool to keep in your car at all times!
