Tyre chains are designed to allow a vehicle to climb a gradient that's beyond the grip level of the tyres. In countries other than South Africa, tyre chain options are normally fitted to snow tyres, not summer tyres
The ‘Owners manual' of your vehicle will detail what wheel and tyre combinations are approved for the fitting of wheel or tyre chain. The safety of any vehicle, especially the braking performance, is compromised if tyre chains are fitted to summer tyres and if tyre chains are used on a ‘bare' road that is free of snow and ice.
Chains for wheels are a close mesh of high-alloy, hardened steel chains. It protects the tread and sidewalls of the tyres. The flexible design of the chains let them adjust to every tyre deformation. Their high level of self-cleaning prevents the tread mesh becoming filled and clogged, which contributes to achieving the best possible road-holding and traction.
Sharp, edged rock, muddy and slippery surfaces are a great hazard to tyres – even when new. Equipment downtime and loss of productivity are the result of sudden tyre failure.
