Winter Tire Chains?

Hi There,

Have been reading the forum for the last couple of weeks and is must admit: Interesting stories between lots of people seeming to know everything about Alfa's. So here's my question:

I Drive a 147 met 17" Supersports which cannot be used with tire chains. What should I Do?

1. Hire wintertyres on steel and tire chains
2. Go for the spevial chains (which in fact are not chains) called 'spider-spikes' and hire them
3. Buy the Spider spikes with the risk they will not be of any use in the future due to different tire specs.

I am interested in your opinion or experiences and where I can hire or by them best!

Nice thise 17" alloys except when you go for a skiing holiday

Hi and welcome to AO.
If I were you, I wouldn't go for the spiders.
Because they are not as good as you hope. You can easily loose them. (Not to think what that could do to your Bella!).

So personaly IMHO(looking at these option you gave) I'd go for wintertires on steel and use chains.

Good luck .
