Snow Chains

Two questions, if I may:-

(1) should I have two or four chains on a P38 Range Rover; if the former, on
which axle?

(2) can anyone recommend particular makes of chain, and supplier? The tyre
size is 235/70 R16.

Many thanks,


Stephen

I *think* the wisdom is to have all 4 ideally, and if you only have two, put
them on the back wheels. The logic is that in extremely slippery
conditions, with chains on only one axle, you may have effectively no grip
on one axle and a massive amount on the other. With the chains on the
front, you risk spinning out of control on a downhill as there is nothing to
stop the rear overtaking the front. With chains on the back, the worst that
can happen is to lose steering going up a hill and push the front into a
hedge.

No, never owned any, so take the above comment with that in mind.

Re: Snow Chains; recommendations for P38a

Richard,

Thank you for your thoughtful reply about which axle to put them on. Does
anyone have any recommendations for brands/suppliers of snow chains?

Stephen
