Usually always a few other sellers of those on British Ebay:

Perhaps worth trying to reach out to one of them, to see if they can´t be of assistance  :)

I use rubber floor mat from a local auto supply house, just cut strips from what ever direction, some on bias, some parallel and join with crazy glue.

And if you need traction in the snow, you can do like Lenn did with those rubber studded floor mats/rugs
