Planning a trip to the French Alps in February 2008. I am currently running 255/55 19" Goodyear MTR's. Do I need snow chains? Its not an off road trip, but I don't know the area at all yet! Is it a legal requirement to carry snow chains? Do my tyres qualify as winter tyres? Does any one know of any problems using snow chains with these tyres? Any brands recommended? Do any members have any they would like to sell/hire? All help greatly appreciated. Ta.

You 'd better take some. Since few years, they are asking some quite often.
Can you imagine driving all these hours and been stopped because you don t have any chains?
And then try to find some in France!
If I were you, I would take some.
It is a frogy's advice. Arno
