Which system should I choose?

Many people think directly about the traditional snow chains instead of examining the alternatives available on today's market. It is important to ask the question, what needs do I have to increase accessibility when they prevail in winter road conditions?

There are many aspects to keep in mind when choosing a system e.g. which area I drive in, reliability, durability and costs etc. Each system has its advantages and disadvantages and there are few systems that are absolutely ideal in all conditions. Therefore, it is important to be careful before making a decision, to minimize the risk of choosing the wrong system.

Therefore, we have compiled a guide, " Ways to increase traction" where we compare the different systems for increasing traction on winter road conditions. The guide explains the advantages and disadvantages of each system. We compare conventional snow chains, tire socks, sand spreaders, 4x4 and automatic snow chains.

The guide contains an overview, with the various parameters, that you must know. This depends on which vehicle you have and which is to be equipped with the respective system.

Take a moment and read through and click your way through the guide. After reading the guide, we hope it will be easier to choose the right system according to your needs.
