[QUOTE=Chains easy to get on and off, drove slowly (2nd gear) and it was fantastic, went everywhere I tried (even a steepish hill), and I just wish I got a set years ago.

googleing around shows a specialist snowchain supplier selling what appears to be an identical set for 120 !.[/QUOTE]


They are easy to get on and off
Thule Snow Chains are THE ones to go for,pricey but worth it when you really need them.

Totally agree, chains are a P.O.P. to get on and off.
Ramps are daft.
A bit of grit can go ( get you ) a long way........
.........and some people are born to grumble!!!!!!!!

Got this via e-mail today (coincidentally, just noticed this thread as well.)

For those that don't know, Click and Clack (aka the Magliozzi brothers, Tom and Ray) are a couple of engineers/car repair guys who have a radio show on National Public Radio. Funny guys, and quite knowledgable about cars (at least those on US roads.)

Anyway, here's the chain related part:
