Snow chains for a 147
I'm delighted to say I've just rejoined the Alfa fold, having just bought a 147 16v jtd.
I know you'll all think me deranged, but I was reading the manual (mainly to try and work out the heater controls), when I came across a paragraph which stated that snow chains could not be applied to wheels with a tyre size of 205x55x16. Now guess what size my tyres are?
Normally, I wouldn't worry about this, but in Italy, which I visit on a fairly regular basis, it is a legal requirement to carry snow chains (not necessarily use them, though I'm not too sure on this one) between Dec 1st and the end of March or April, depending where you are.
Does anyone know if any mod can be made to allow for chains, if different size tyres/wheels will make a difference, or even where I could go for some definitive advice?
It's not likely to become an issue before next year, really, but I would greatly value any advice.
