We offer four different brands of commercial snowchain because each of the brands contributes something unique to our overall range:
Maggi is the probably the best known of the Italian brands. Some of their chains are similar to RUD and Thule in design, but because we are the UK importer we can offer these chains at better prices.
Unique chains: Maggi's 'The ONE 4x4' chains have a patented self-tensioning system that uses a series of elastomer balls to keep the chains tight. Their TRAK range fits from outside the wheel without the need for any tools.
RUD is Germany's specialist chain manufacturer - snowchains are only a small part of their global business.
Their top of the range 4x4 chains (RUD-matic Classic V) use exceptionally hard wearing speciality steels, which is why for example they supply the British Army and other organisations which need the toughest chains available for cross country work.
These are made by Confon in Switzerland.
Unique chains: All Spikes-Spider chains are unique.
There are two versions: standard Spikes-Spiders clip onto a pre-positioned plate that's fixed to the wheel rim; they are definitely the fastest to fit and remove. The new 'Easy' versions clip onto two wheel bolts.
Spikes-Spiders can be resized by at least 220mm, providing long term value for money for customers who use vehicles with similar sized wheels.
All components can be replaced when they are worn out.
Unlike all other snow chains, Spikes-Spiders don't rust because they use stainless steel.
It's no surprise that they are generally considered to be the best snow chain system available or that, for example, they are supplied as Original Equipment to Jaguar Land Rover.
We stock the best of Thule's traditional chain models, together with their K-Summit ladder track chains, and the Easy-fit automatic chains.
Unique chains: Easy-fit chains are tangle free, quick, easy and intuitive to fit and remove - they're also ideal for use where space in the wheel arch is limited. They're as quick and easy to use as Spikes-Spiders, and quite a bit cheaper, but they are less robust and more vulnerable to damage.
