Topic - snow chains for ford focus mk1

gethin_allen on 03 Dec 2012
With my sights set on the hills in winter I've been considering getting some snow chains to give myself a fighting chance of getting around.

According to ford my Mk1 focus zetec 1.6 with 195/60/15 tyres on it (as standard) won't take snow chains because of a lack of clearance between the tyre and suspension struts.
Before I'd read this I had bought some chains and tried fitting them and found this out the hard way.

What's the best option price V performance? snow socks, expensive chains that don't go around the back of the tyre, winter tyres, or alternatively has anyone made their own chains?
