Snow Chains

Dr Goon

Recommended Posts

We are off to the Pyrenees in February 2007 in the 110 and, just in case, I would like to take some snow chains with me.

Can anyone point me in the direction of a supplier in the UK that will sell chains big enough to fit 235/85x16 BFG All Terrains?

Depends if you are taking them as you WILL need them or in CASE you need them.

These seem way too cheap to stand offroading abuse but are a well known make and will get you up the hill

Sorry they are on ebay :ph34r: #

Now, on a 4x4 if you only have one set you fit them on the back, right? :huh:

it's the age old question.

all the manufacturers, local governments say you have to put them on the back

i always put them on the front on a 4wd vehicle- so much safer going down hill- only time this doesn't work is if you are going to drive too quickly then you risk losing the back end going down hill which is not much fun.

get 2 sets then you'll be sorted permanantly!

Thanks for the replies everyone.

I am taking them in case we need them and I am not intending to use them off-road.

I have e-mailed the company advertising them on e-Bay and I think I will probably get 2 sets to be on the safe side.

I have never used them on any vehicle before but I have it in mind that, in winter, it is a legal requirement to carry them in France in mountainous regions.
