Choosing your Snowsweat snow chains

Not sure which Snowsweat snow chains are right for you?

I have a 2WD passenger vehicle (family car/sedan/van/campervan/ute/hatchback)

Snowsweat snow chains are made for use with standard factory road tyres – the most common tyre used on public roads. Choose your chains by selecting the best fit for your usage:

  • I’ll be driving in town and need an emergency solution for unexpected snow: Quick Grip
  • I’ll be crossing alpine passes and making occasional trips to mountain resorts: Easy Fit
  • I want a good value pair of snow chains that are quick and easy to fit: Easy Fit
  • I’m a season pass holder and I like to head off the beaten track: Diamond
  • I am not confident driving in snow and I want to reduce wheel slippage so I feel safe: Diamond
  • I want excellent grip on steep resort roads and windy alpine passes: Diamond

 

I have a 4WD vehicle (ute/van/SUV)

Snowsweat has five different snow chains designed specifically for 4WD vehicles: Compact, Diamond, Mudcat, Icecat and Powdercat. Choose your Snowsweat snow chains based on how you’ll be driving.

Snowsweat snow chains are made for use with standard factory road tyres – the most common tyre used on public roads. Snowsweat chains will fit all-terrain tyres but aren't suitable for use on mud tyres.

  • I’m a winter sightseer who wants to go from city to snow: Compact 4x4
  • I hit the slopes weekly and want a premium traction product: Diamond 4x4 
  • I am not confident driving in snow and I want to reduce wheel slippage so I feel safe: Diamond 4x4
  • I have limted space and want a good value pair of snow chains that are quick and easy to fit: Compact 4x4
  • I have a grunty 4WD truck with aggressive all-terrain tyres and want a heavier duty snow chain: Powdercat/ Mudcat
  • Nothing stops me. I’m ready for snow, mud and scree: Mudcat
  • I’m first on the mountain after the grader; I need a firm grip on icy roads: Icecat
  • I want to run standard tyres instead of mud tyres and need to get more grip on paddocks and farmland without causing too much damage: Icecat
  • I love getting up the mountain first for powder turns, but I don’t want aggressive v-bar chains: Powdercat/ Mudcat
  • I want a premium product that's designed for ultimate traction: Mudcat
  • I have a 4WD truck with all-terrain tyres and need a set of snow chains for occasional use: Powdercat

 

I have a heavy vehicle (large ute/small-wheeled truck/campervan/bus)

  • Snow, scree, mud – it’s all part of the journey: Mudcat
  • Icy roads are just the beginning. I need the best grip on an icy road a chain can give : Icecat
  • I hit the club fields and like to head off road, but I don’t want anything too heavy: Powdercat
  •  From club fields to off road tracks, I want the best road contact for optimum traction and safety: Mudcat

 

I have a car with low profile tyres/extra wide tyres/oversized rims/mags

You may be able to use Snowsweat snow chains, but only if there’s enough clearance. 
Tip: To check if there is enough room to fit chains safely on a modified car, turn the wheel to a hard lock, then run your hands over the tyre tread and behind the wheel. Also check the inside of your wheel arch for signs of wear. If tight turns are causing wear on the inside of your wheel arch, then you won’t have enough room for snow chains. 

  • I have a car with enough wheel clearance, but there isn’t much room to get my hands around the tyre to fit snow chains: Diamond or Diamond 4x4  

 

Once you’ve chosen the right chains, you’ll need to get the right size.
