snow chains
Bought my new snow chains, arrived yesterday....just need the white stuff back now, Clack and go quattros, absalutey brill. So easy can be put on in 30 seconds and off in 20. cant wait to try em out, along with my mud and snow tyres.Should be unstoppable. Bit costly, but engineering wise very good quality.
hey pete have you put your snow tyres on your old wheels or your alloys.
I'd never heard of those chains so I Googled them. Pretty slick system indeed! If I get chains in the future it'd be those. Can't remember how many times I've crawled around on all fours in snow and slush fitting conventional chains then drive along with wet pants and heater on high. Don't need that any more when something like these are available. Thanks for posting.
2010 Berlingo Multispace HDi 110 with FAP.  Persamos green.

fitted m&s tyres to my original steels, and then sprayed my std vtr hub caps satin black[ same as my black alloys] . looks cool. cleaned and polished my alloys and put away in shed untill end March.
Yes the snow chains are even easier to fit than that female in there advert shows. Once of course you spent the first hour , in the comfort of your home adjusting them to fit, and yes that is done by tyre graphs and just unscrewing odd bits. The chains are then adjustable in the future for a wide variety of other wheel sizes.

piccys of m&s tyres with black hubs, also roof bars , fitted but slid to rear when not in use, also roo bar with spots fitted.
Enjoy may or maynot be to your taste.

pch, nice looking multispace there. i really like that look, and at a top spec too, brill.
Cheers Andre. glad someone else likes it apart from me, my partners lad [16] takes the piss out of it. But then anything I have he would do the same. To His mom its just a car with seats, she doesnt get the male thing about cars.ha ha .
You should tell him to get the bus in that case Tongue

It's one of the nicer berlis i have seen, but then again it is showroom spec and a good lookin car anyway!
View from the parking spot ain't too shabby either!
cheers guys
Dredging up an old thread.
I've been offered a set of Clack & Go Prestige snow chains. they'll fit the tyres (215/65-15) and the Weissenfeil website claims they'll fit, but then has a disclaimer about clearance. Does anyone know if they'll fit OK? They need 9mm of clearance behind the wheel apparently.

I've got a set of snow socks that are perfectly adequate. They got me out of trouble last winter on a farm track of about 1 in 3 covered in a couple of inches of ice (was rather hairy until I remembered I had them - slowly sliding towards a steep drop into a stream). But chains are better and more, well, MANLY ;-)
