Suppose I had a two-wheel drive car fitted with ordinary road tyres. Then on the very odd occasion I wanted to take this car off road and needed some decent grip. Rather than drive around with off-road tyres all the time that would be seldom used, is there any kind of product out there that could provide temporary traction in slippery/muddy conditions?
I'm thinking something kind of like snow chains, but more suited to dirt/mud/gravel. Perhaps a kind of knobbly rubber skin that could be temporarily pulled over a tyre? Is there anything like that out there?
The only other option I can think of would be to carry a spare pair of wheels in the boot already fitted with off-road tyres, but I'm trying to keep the weight down.

there are other brands of similar devices, maybe one made for dirt/mud? (they show this one off-road; )
and nothing would be lighter to carry than rope(make sure it will clear the caliper and dont' destroy your stems);

I bought one for my brother for his birthday that you could set the psi you wanted and it would air down or inflate to it.
added benefit of trail repair of flats
