Which snow chain should I use for my vehicle?
The snow chain you decide to use is largely down to your own personal choice. As a general rule, the Polar 16mm range of snow chains is our basic range – they are great for getting you out of trouble, both in this country and on mainland Europe, including on European ski resorts. The Polar 16mm range is an economical option and these snow chains are used by both the AA and RAC for their fleet vehicles. Visually the Polar range is the same as the ZIP Transport range and they fit in the same way. Polar 16mm snow chains can be used on all 4x4, camper van and light commercial applications, unless there is limited clearance between the wheel and the braking or suspension components of the vehicle.
The ZIP Transport 16mm range of snow chains are similar to the Polar 16mm range but are made of high tensile, hardened steel. They are very strong and hardwearing, and are again suitable for all 4x4, camper vans and light commercial vehicles as long as there is not restricted clearance.
The XG12-Pro snow chain is suitable for vehicles that have restricted clearance between the wheel and the braking/suspension components of the vehicle. The standard thickness of a 4x4 snow chain is 16mm, whereas the XG12-Pro has a chain thickness of only 12mm. The XG12-Pro also has an automatic tensioning device which means you do not have to get back out of the vehicle to re-tighten the chain after the initial fitting. This snow chain is made of high tensile steel and the reduced chain gauge gives a smoother drive, although the traction given by a 12mm snow chain will be slightly less than that of a 16mm snow chain.
The K-Summit range of snow chains is used mainly by cars with limited clearance between the wheel and the braking/suspension components of the vehicle. The K-Summit snow chain fits to the wheel nut on the front of the wheel and so requires no space behind the wheel. It is easy and convenient to fit and is made of high quality steel. The K-Summit XL is for vehicles up to 2000kgs and the K-Summit XXL is for vehicles over 2000kgs.
All of our vehicle traction products, both the chains and the K-Summit, are easy to fit, but we strongly recommend that you practise fitting them in dry conditions. Please watch our fitting video if you need any guidance.
