Many car owners prefer using chains to tire cables on snow during the winter season. Chains provide maximum traction while driving on ice or snow. In some cases, the law may require a car owner to install either chains or cables during the snowy season.
There are different types of snow chains a driver can use, including link chains, snow chains, studded wires and snow socks, among others. It is necessary to choose the correct size of chains that fit the tires. Driving faster while using chains may make them fail. It is also necessary to adhere to the law while using snow chains.
