Thule Snow Chains - Highly respected brand; chains widely recommended all round the Alps
Highly desirable for all winter motoring and essential on some alpine roads where it's an offence not to carry snow chains when the signs are in use - which can often be from Sept to May, even longer in some places! Tip: In Austria you must also have 4mm tread on the driven axle in snow/ice - risk of instant fines otherwise!
Thule: "The best snow chain all over the world! Made in Northern Italy by König who are part of the mighty Thule Group. Thule is at the forefront of innovations in snow chains for consumer vehicles, commercial and industrial applications. Long established, highly respected, and much recommended in Italy, Austria, Switzerland, France & Germany. Thule of course are part British too!
Thule Snow chains: all feature • Premium quality through hardened Manganese Nickel Alloy Steel (MnNi) for higher reliability • Dual sided D-shaped linked which provide greater traction and extended life • Inside cable with plastic extruded cover • Alloy wheel protection • Colour coded working points for ease of installation to it the chain without moving the car • Innovative non-slip strong packaging comes complete with gloves, carpet, mounting instructions and spare parts • Suitable for grass/mud traction too. Also Jeko Belts (right) on offer - but for alloys only.
Thule XS-16: '16mm' Usual great Thule quality but also the quickest snow chain to install and remove. Ideal for mountain journeys • Patented external quick release system • Patented self-centring and self-tensioning system with micro-regulation solution • 16mm link diameter for heavier vehicles up to 7.5t • Excellent grip on ice and snow for vehicles with a higher weight than a passenger car • Locking device is anti-scratch for use on alloy rims • Innovative design with unique colour coded assembling points.
XS types are easiest and quickest to fit while offering both micro-regulation and alloy wheel protection. Delivery is normally 1-2 weeks on chains but can be 4-6 weeks at times.
Strength & Sizing: The first task is to choose a chain that's strong enough for use on a motorhome - and not all are! Those cheap car chains are not designed for heavyweight grip and would inevitably break and wreck parts of your vehicle, but hopefully not you! We asked Thule about weight limits for these XS-16 chains and they said for all European motorhomes so that's up to 7.5t, they also said "tyre size and clearance distance is the most important requirement". The clearance spec on these heavy duty chains is 16mm. So the next task is to get the right size. Chain sizing is based on tyre size and each chain set fits a small range of tyre sizes. Note that all tyre dimensions are important - section, profile, and diameter so note for example 215 / 70 R 15 C. In case of doubt over the tyre specification it is the tyre size as moulded into the sidewall that always takes precedence. Please note you must consult your vehicle handbook to check for (rare) warnings against using chains.
To make life easier for you we've created a table of our chain sizes against tyre sizes. A number of different tyres can be fitted to otherwise similar vehicles so do check the details actually on your tyre sidewalls before ordering - whatever the handbook says! Then to purchase just browse the table below to find your tyre size and read off the chain size alongside. Then purchase that code number chain lower down the page. Any delivery charges are displayed in your basket before checkout.
Also Jeko Snow Belts as pictured right. Universal, straightforward, not for long term use but great for meeting the 'must carry chains' regs in France for example. "The most simple way of getting about in the snow or even thick mud. These snow belts are extremely easy to fit and well presented. The come in a stylish carry bag which contains: 12 belts, 1 pair of gloves, 1 key test, 2 mounting keys, 12 sheaths to protect the rims, 12 security straps and 1 user hand book. Suitable for all vehicles that have 1cm of space between the calliper and disc. Only suitable for alloy wheels up to 18 inches in size". Complete with authorised for use in place of chains info.
