Wheel straps or tyre straps are made from polyester webbing. They are used in conjunction with ratchet straps for securing cars, jeeps, tractors and other vehicles on trailers for transport. They allow the user to securely grip the wheel of the vehicle on the trailer between the tyre strap and the cargo strap. The ratchet handle is then ratcheted tightening the strap against the wheel. Wheel straps are available with either soft eyes or with hard eyes. In general they are made from 50mm cargo webbing. They can be made any length although the more popular sizes are 16 to 18 inches. Basic rules when selecting a wheel strap size is choose one which is shorter than the diameter of the wheel being strapped. Wheel straps are used in sets of 4 (one for each wheel of the vehicle being transported. They do work on any length of ratchet strap but in general customers prefer to buy a shorter ratchet strap of 4 or 5 meters for use with the wheel strap.
