snow chains on a new Civic Hybrid?
has anyone had experience putting snow chains on a late model Civic Hybrid? Just bought a 2008, and it looks like the clearances are pretty tight. I read the earlier thread about using Blizzak tires (which I've used and like), but occasionally we get weather in the NW that requires a bit more traction.
Found Spikes-Spiders, which
Found Spikes-Spiders, which mount on the HUB and rest on the tire. They are EXCELLENT.
Best iof luck to you.
I will be purchasing some
I will be purchasing some Blizzak tires for my car like others on the list. I drove through I-80 to San Fran this past summer and seem to recall that the mountain passes required snow chains OR dedicated snow tires (with the snowflake emblem on the sidewall). The Blizzak brand of tires are a good enough substitute for snow chains that friends of mine travel over the mountain from San Fran to Salt Lake City with nothing but Blizzak tires and they are allowed to pass.
