also known as - Subaru Liberty four door saloon
Spikes-Spider ALPINE - size A1 with 19mm fittings
The new Spikes-Spider ALPINE is now available, offering the same speed and simplicity of fitting as the rest of the range. It's a slightly cheaper version of the ALPINE PRO, the ALPINE PRO being an extra tough chain system developed for the light commercial vehicle market, i.e. vehicles up to 3.5 tonnes.
You'll see that there's more metal in evidence than is seen on other Spikes-Spider systems, but the ALPINE shares the same fundamental characteristics as the rest of the range, e.g. the same hub mounting plates, the way in which the chains sit quite loose on the tyres, are self cleaning and will adjust to the frequent changes in tyre shape without straining any components, and the fact that all parts are available as spares. Specific features:

Should you choose the SPORT or the ALPINE? They have very similar price points, but there are some key differences, the main one in practice being that the SPORT is a fully modular chain, i.e. every component is available to make it as small or as large as you're likely to need, whereas each size of ALPINE can only be resized slightly smaller or slightly bigger. It's anticipated that the ALPINE will appeal more to drivers of heavier vehicles, e.g. larger MPVs and 4x4s.
If you aren't sure which system to buy into, then we recommend that you stick with the SPORT, tried and tested over many years, and the overall best value snow chain system available.
If you only need a few spares, you can order them in single units; please click here.
Delivery charges and arrangements:
Free delivery offer for snow chains! As part of our Snow chains SALE we have added a free delivery option for all orders including snow chains, except for orders which also include a roof box. It covers all UK addresses except for any delivery address that includes a sea crossing.
See below for our normal delivery arrangements:
We charge a contribution towards delivery costs, depending on what you order, where you live, and how quickly you want the goods.
For most UK addresses, the charge for our two to three day service is £5.50 (£9.50 for orders including a roof box) and our charge for Next Working Day deliveries is £8.50 (£12.50 for orders involving a roof box). AutoSock, and small spare parts, are charged £3.95 (1st Class post) or £5.50 (express courier, usually Next Working Day).
There are different charges for any delivery including a sea crossing, and deliveries to Skye - we will contact you with a quote on receipt of order.
Orders for Next Working Day delivery need to be received by 4.00pm.
There are no deliveries on Saturdays, Sundays or Bank Holidays. Next Working Day orders placed on a Friday will be delivered on the Monday, Next Working Day orders placed on a Saturday will be delivered on the Tuesday.
We are very flexible with our deliveries and will aim to deliver on a day and at an address which suits you. Goods can usually be left without signature - we prefer this with roof boxes. There's a "Special Delivery Instructions" box in the checkout area where we'll ask you to choose a typical instruction and then amend it to suit your particular requirements.
No retailer or courier company can ever "guarantee" a Next Working Day delivery. All courier companies occasionally have the same transport problems as can happen to everyone else, including snow blocked roads, closed roads, traffic jams, mechanical breakdown, an inability to find the delivery address, or to gain access to it if, for example, it's in a block of flats. We work with some of the best couriers in the business, and overall they provide an outstanding service.
There are two parts to our snow chains end of season sale:
(1) A free UK mainland delivery option for any snow chain order except any orders including a roof box or a sea crossing.
(2) Huge discounts off our already discounted prices:
