Powell makes them, they are functional, pulling the car say out of a ditch or if it's stuck in snow, maybe winching it onto a flatbed.

Nope, Powell's only replaced two, one he warrantied because the metal got stretched but didn't break. The other the guy had to buy a new one because he jacked up his car off of the plate and it bent, it's made for horizontal forces not vertical.

I have a set to install, mainly so if I get stuck in the winter I won't be crawling under the car.

I finally buckled and got a set on the way too. I always thought putting a tow hook on your car is like setting a fire extinguisher on the kitchen counter before you start cooking lol
Not that I plan to go off the track now, but I figure with how low the car is and all the mud if you do go off at my local road track, I owe it to the track crew to make their job easier and as or more importantly, prevent any damage to my car. Just in case. Hope I never have to use them lol

a buddy of mine makes them to, and he custom engraves them! 2 for 100 or 1 for 75$ also sells in different colors

It looks ricey to me. Most cars I see with those hooks have never seen a track and likely never will. It's too flashy for my taste.

When I get stuck, I use my old steel traction aids. They've bailed me out many times before.

That's why mine will be black (like my car) and I'll likely take them off when not at the track. Everything on my car is function > form
