Tyre measurements we need
Before ordering, please do go and check the numbers embossed on the side of your tyre.
For example: "215 /65/r 15"
The first number is a width measurement (215)
The second number is the tyre shoulder, expressed as a percentage of the width (65)
The third number is the tyre rim diameter in inches (15)
Enter those tyre measurement numbers below.
How many chains do you need?
The initial price shown is for one pair of snow chains to fit 2 wheels.
On 4 wheel drives, you need at least 2 snow chains fitted to the front wheels. You will also need to engage 4 wheel drive mode.
2 wheel drive vehicles must have two chains fitted to the driving wheels as a minimum requirement. i.e. 2 chains on the rear wheels or, if a front wheel drive, 2 chains on the front steering wheels.
Please note that all vehicles will benefit from snow chains being fitted to all 4 wheels to gain extra grip in lateral directions. For rear wheel drive vehicles, 4 chains will reduce understeer. On front wheel drive and 4 x 4 vehicles, 4 chains will help to reduce oversteer.
Helpful hints to avoid damage to snow chains
Do not travel faster than 40 kilometres per hour with snow chains fitted.
Do not drive with snow chains fitted for extended distances on bare ashphalt surfaces.
Drive cautiously applying very gradual pressure on the accelerator to avoid spinning the wheels.
If you require snow chains for more than one vehicle, then you will need to repeat the “Add to Cart” ordering process for each particular set of chains.
