IS THERE a way to fit snow chains to my Ford Focus?
WE CONTACTED Ford to check the assertion you can't fit snow chains to a new Focus and the company confirms that they don't recommend it because there isn't enough clearance between the tyre and suspension components. Anyone wanting to visit the snow often should check that the car they intend buying can take snow chains before they pay for it. Reader Daniel Stevens says to buy a set of German-made RUD Centrax chains. These are not secured to the inside sidewall of the tyres so clearance is not a concern. Ph: (07) 3274 3666.
