Evening all,
There has been recent discussions on where and when snow chains must be carried / fitted. One question which hasn't been answered is what constitutes snow chains?
Is there and ADR or AS relating to snow chains. Does anyone who owns snow chains seen an ADR or AS on the packaging.
This question indirectly relates to snow chain purchase. Most chains new cost around $200 at local suppliers, for something you may only use once every couple of years. Several sites in the U.S currently sell chains to fit SWMBO's vehicle for $28 - $35 U.S. Can this be a worthwhile alternative, even adding postage costs.
Any thoughts appreciated

Hi Rolande
I've checked the Vicroads site and as far as I can tell, there are no adr's relating to chains. It just says fit good quality chains.

Did the same before posting here. If I can get a set here for under $80 may be worthwhile, thanks for posting

I just got back from Queenstown, NZ. Had a Toyota Starlet rental car and had to fit chains to it most days to get to the snowfields. I got quite annoyed at the amount of four wheel drives of different makes and models going without chains. We almost got taken out by an 80 series that was sliding all over the road going down hill. They might have 4WD traction but doesn't help f--k all when you have rubber on ice.
