    Default Snow chains

    There has been quite a shift in what people are buying in recent days, for some reason people have been buying the Konig chains for their cars over cheaper brands, and even for the 4Wd's they have moved on to the more expensive but way better Konig chains. One reason may be that the Konig chains do comply with the new regulation of the "O" Norm 5117 standard that has been in force at Hotham for a few years now and will be enforced Victoria wide soon. The cheaper choice is the Chinese made V2 Traction brand, unlike Konig which are a one stop self tensioning system, the V2 chains require you to fit them and then move forward half a wheel rotation and get out and retension, as Konig tension themselves as you drive, they don't require this second step.Check them out here if you like:
