Fitting snow chains
The videos below demonstrate how to fit the various types of snow chains we offer. Apart from getting a size of chain that fits your tyres, the other key issue to be aware of is clearance around the wheel, because some cars lack sufficient space behind the wheel to fit a regular snow chain. This is usually due to the suspension being too close to the inner edge of the tyre, but in some models of vehicle there can be other obstructions (such as a metal beam or the wheel arch itself). For more information on clearance please see our FAQs. To fit a regular snow chain you will also need enough space between the wheel and the arch to get your hands into the arch on top of the wheel.
Very low profile tyres can also limit the options open to you.
We offer a bespoke fitting service at our Tonbridge address if you are in doubt as to the suitability of snowchains for your vehicle. You can also call us if you have any doubts or queries.
