How to choose the right snow chains
The snow chains are composed of metal links and are to be placed around the tyre. Their role is to strengthen the grip in slippery areas. The snow chains are to be installed on the drive wheels of the vehicle, which means they should be installed on the front wheels of a front wheel drive or on the rear wheel of a rear wheel drive vehicle..

Another alternative for smaller budgets: The snow socks!
Also called car socks, the snow sock is the ideal solution for smaller distances in flat and slightly snowy areas. Although very convenient for exceptional use, the life durance is somewhat limited: about 12,5 miles
Precautions to take when fitting your snow chains
Before fitting your snow chains
For a better security and comfort, try practice fitting the chains before leaving. In order to do so, place your car on level ground, in a place where it's dry and there is enough light.
Store them in your trunk or in a place where they are easily accessible.
If you should need to apply the chains
Park your car away from the road (on highway, do not use the emergency lane, but prefer a rest stop area)
Equip yourself with warm clothes and gloves, and not to mention some cloths and a lamp if it's dark.
After having fitted the chains
Tighten your chains again after a few miles.
Do not drive more than 31 mph, and even less according to the recommendations from certain car part suppliers.
Avoid driving on non-snowy surfaces.
If this is not possible, avoid acceleration and to hard braking.
After having used the snow chains
To avoid rapid premature wear from the salted roads, clean your snow chains after use. To preserve them, wash them in hot water and dry them well before putting them back in their packaging.
Quality Control Labels
The TÜV label provides a guarantee for production, quality, reliability and safety standards.
The V5117 Önorm determines the applied norms and fitting instructions for snow chains suitable for M1 (recreational vehicles and small vans), N1 (vehicles up to 3.5t), O1 (trailers up to 750 kg) and O2 (trailers up to 3.5t) vehicles. The label also determines the minimal traction standard for the snow chains, provided they are fitted correctly.
Most of today's vehicles are non-chainable. Over time the size of our tyres has increased, limiting the space around the wheels and thus prevented the mounting of traditional snow chains. To overcome this kind of inconvenience, Mister Auto offers the Thule K-SLIM chains, which are easy to fit onall kind of non-chainable cars ! Known and recognized by its users, the Thule K-SLIM chains are appreciated for their strength, and especially for their small footprint.
