The Polar range of snow chains are suitable for most passenger vehicles, but we do not recommend them for heavy people carriers.
Snow chains are a legal requirement on all European mountain roads. Roadside checks are carried out and drivers may be fined if they do not have a set in their vehicle. Snow socks do not meet the required standard in European ski resorts. The use of snow chains is legal in the UK, as long as they are not used in a manner that will damage the road surface. This means snow chains must only be used on snow-covered roads and need to be removed when driving on a tarmac surface.
Snow chains are sold in pairs and need to be fitted to the drive wheels. This is generally seen as sufficient and meets the legal requirements on mainland Europe and mountain roads. Some drivers prefer to use four snow chains (two sets) for additional traction. This would give more control, especially if you are driving for long stretches in areas requiring snow chains.
All of our vehicle traction products, both snow chains and snow socks, are easy to fit, but we strongly recommend that you practise fitting them in dry conditions. Please watch our fitting videos if you need any guidance.
