RUD Classic automatic chains (pair) no. 48484
"Classic automatic" snow chains, otherwise known as RUD-matic CLASSIC, are a good option for rear wheel drives with limited clearance between the top of the wheel and the wheel arch. They're very quick, clean and easy to fit and to remove, compared to all other traditional snow chain types - RUD have the patent on this technology.
RUD's Classic automatic chains are particularly suitable - sometimes almost essential - for rear wheel drive cars where there is limited clearance for your hands and forearms between the top of the wheel and the wheel-arch; they also appeal to people who just appreciate the technology.
Note that the first picture shows both the outside of the wheel (left) and the inside of the wheel (right).
We rate these chains very highly for ease of use, but they've also scored very high marks in test results for their traction, durability, tracking, braking distance and smoothness of running. If you're tempted to buy any chain more expensive than the RUD Grip, it will probably be either a Classic automatic or an Easy2Go. If you can't decide which of these two types to buy, then we recommend that you do go for this automatic chain, because you don't need to kneel in the snow / in the slush at the start of the fitting process.
Why choose RUD? Simple - they're reckoned to be the best. But don't just take our word for it; RUD are official suppliers to Audi, BMW, Jaguar, Landrover, Mercedes, Saab, Volvo, and VW, amongst others, and also supply the British Army - ample evidence that their snow chains are as good as they come.
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:
As usual, you change the quantities in the Shopping Basket.
