Chain Fitting Check List

  • Fit chains to driving wheels only.
  • Always test fit chains before a trip.
  • Fit at fitting bays on level ground.
  • If chains fall off or loosen when a vehicle is in motion stop and check brake lines for damage, before re-tensioning.
  • Carry a torch, plastic garbage bag (or tarp) and gloves to make fitting easier.
  • Use correct fitting diamond pattern chains.
  • Tyres must be in good condition with minimal wear.
  • Chains alter your car's handling, take time to readjust your driving and take care!

Frequently Asked Questions

Can chains be fitted to all cars?
Chains can only be fit if there is enough clearance between the tyre and the rest of the car. If concerned about clearance, we recommend running your hand between the back tyre and the vehicle. If you cannot fit your full hand, or you hit a bolt at any point, you may not be able to fit chains to your vehicle. If chains cannot be fit to your vehicle, we suggest finding alternative transport for your snow trip.

What size chains do I need?
Always fit chains as recommended by the vehicle manufacturer in the owner’s manual. The owner’s manual of your vehicle will direct you on whether chains can be fit to your vehicle, what wheels to fit chains to (front or rear) and if chains can be fit only with a certain tyre size.
