Don't be without your vehicle chains this winter
When shopping for chains, it pays to consider the following...
Where are you driving? What fits your
vehicle? How easy are the chains to
fit? Shotover Engineering stocks two
types of chains and can find something to fit
almost any vehicle. Each set of chains sold
are fitted to the vehicle to double check they
are the correct size and the customer is
shown how to correctly fit them too.
For the majority of people driving in the
local area and accessing the ski fields, we
would recommend our Pewag quickfit
diamond pattern chain. They are easy and
quick to fit and the diamond pattern of chain
across the tyre provides an almost
continuous point of contact between the
chain/tyre and road.
This minimises the slip and then grip that
can be experienced with a straight crossbar
chain. These chains come in two weights to
suit either cars or utes. Pewag is a quality
Austrian brand and Shotover Engineering
has been selling them with confidence for 15
years. Some vehicles have minimal clearance
between tyre and car body and will need a
slightly different specialist chain.
The Icebreaker ladder chains are ideally
suited to deep snow (and/or mud) e.g,
unploughed roads or farm work. Although
the chain is chunkier and gives the
appearance of being heavy duty, it is softer
chain than used on quickfits and will not last
as long if driven on roads. These chains
come in varying thicknesses and take a little
more time and effort to fit.
The price of chains can seem prohibitive to
some people but when compared to your
insurance excess or a bill from the panel
beaters, it's really a no-brainer. Don't be
caught unprepared, come in and see us
early! If you already own a set of chains, now
is the time to get them out, check them over
and familiarise yourself with how they fit.
Better to do this at home, before you are
kneeling in the snow trying to remember
how to fit them and then discover that your
new tyres are a different size....
Shotover Engineering is the longest serving
engineering workshop in the Wakatipu Basin
and stocks a wide variety of spare snow
chain parts. The workshop also carries out
repairs to snowchains.
