Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

Winter Tyres And Front Fit Chains.

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Set of 4 Jinyu winter tyres 225/50/17 with 3 peaks and a snowflake mark. One trip to the alps on the treads. Off a 68 plate Volvo V60 if that helps. £100. *SOLD*

Set of MaggiTrak front fit chains for said wheel size* (and others), excellent nick, very simple fitting, unused save for practice. £100

Tyres collect only from SA12; will send the chains for P&P; or you can collect.

End of lease, had exactly the same car this time, natch different wheels! Sad

* I think kit's the 213 model, will check if anyone interested.

Would do a swop for either, my needs are for 235/45/18

Check your tyre size as I had Maggitrak and you can cut the black rubber bits in the track and make them quite a bit bigger. (I was told you can do that by Maggi). Worth checking.

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?

@Charliegolf, you might get a better response if you post the tyre sizes.

I will have a good look. I had considered 'modding', (cough) them if possible. Black rubber bits, not ringing a bell, will get em out. The diameter of the two tyre sizes appears about 10mm. You think there'd be that much there to play with? Any more detail will be welcome. Ta.

The “chain” part has a metal cross but then a rubber one that brings the chain bit in.
Drop Maggi an email, they were very helpful, even sent me some more rubber bits to replace if needed for no charge!

@harrim51, Didn't work, sadly. Got no takers, so thought, why not? Removing the rubbers didn't do it. Looking at an engineering solution next.
