Snow chains are part of the basic winter equipment for many domestic drivers. Thanks to them, you can safely drive in icy and snowy conditions.

Značka sněhové řetězy The rules in individual countries are varied, i.e. in some countries the duty is to carry them, in other countries you only have to use them when you see the appropriate sign. Before traveling abroad, it is important to familiarise yourself with the local traffic regulations.

 

What snow chains should I choose?

Snow chains differ from one another in the quality of the steel, the traction and also the fit. Remember, the more cells at the interface, the better.

  • Chains with sloping track - Inclined snow chains cover the entire surface of the tread, have a very good braking performance, a high grip and provide easy assembly and disassembly. With high-quality steel they stand for high efficiency and a long service life. The combination of all these advantages make them the most expensive type of snow chains.
  • Chains with crossbars -  the tyre treads of these chains intersect to form a pattern of the letter X or H. They are very sticky, flexible and provide stability during braking. They are easy to assemble, transmit less vibration, but are also more expensive.
  • Ladder chains - This type consists of parallel chains distributed on the tyre. It is a simple construction which is attached by hooks. They are known for their low price. Ideal for on the road, but only with a thin layer of snow, in addition, these are much harder to attach.
  • Textile snow chains - textile belts can improve the ride on snow and ice. They are low in height and can therefore be used on some sports cars. They are lighter and less noisy than conventional steel chains, as well as their excellent compactness and easy installation. The main drawback, however, is the very short lifetime. In certain cases they affect the performance of the cars on freshly fallen snow.
  • Chemical snow chains - this is a chemical spray, which is more suited to a short drive, like driving out of a snowy car park. After a few hundred meters to a few miles, the chemical layer will disappear. It is then necessary to reapply the spray. Chemical chains are environmentally friendly and relatively cheap. However, this type is only recommended as an emergency solution.

 

When selecting chains, pay attention to the following parameters:

  • Tyre size
  • Total height of the chains
  • Maximum chain load
  • The compatibility with the vehicle type (possible restrictions, refer to the vehicle operating manual)
