RUD-compact easy2go chains (pair) size 4035 no. 4716948

RRP: 110.00

A pair of top quality traditional snow chains from Germany's premier manufacturer, including self-tensioning - so after first fitting you don't need to stop again to tighten them.

Fitting may be difficult on rear wheel drives so, before ordering, drivers of rear wheel drives should check whether they can get the whole of both forearms into the space between the top of the wheel and the wheel arch.

There’s a surprising amount of technology in snow chains; not only do they need to work as efficiently as possible, but they must be strong enough to cope with all likely situations, be easy to fit and remove, and be long lasting. Most modern cable chains are quite similar, so what's so special about RUD's easy2go chains?

  • They use 4mm wedge-shaped chrome-manganese fine-grained alloy steel chain – for better grip. Each link is 9mm high.
  • Stationary fitting, i.e. there's no need to move the vehicle forward or backwards to complete the fitting process.
  • There's a patented "Permanent Tensioning Device" which removes the need to stop and re-tighten the chains. It's a bungee type system so there's no danger of the tensioning system getting iced up.
  • The diagonal configuration track pattern gives you better grip than a standard diamond shape and there's no risk of the chain getting stuck in any central groove on your tyres.
  • Their lower profile shape minimises the potential for scratches on alloy wheels.
  • The quick release ratchets speed up both fitting and removal.
  • They have a reversible chain mesh for a long lifetime (but don't grind them down on the tarmac!)
  • They're supplied in a strong zipped padded nylon bag, making them easier to pack away than into a plastic case, and easier to store in tight spaces.

Note that the first picture shows both the outside of the wheel (left) and the inside of the wheel (right).

Why choose RUD? Simple - they're reckoned to be the best. They're a German company who pioneered modern snow chains. But don't just take our word for it; RUD are official suppliers to Audi, BMW, Jaguar, Land Rover, Mercedes-Benz, Saab, Volvo, and VW, amongst others, and also supply the British Army - ample evidence that their snow chains are as good as they come.

Important safety information: These chains will fit around these tyres but it is possible that they are not suitable for use with your particular make and model of car. If you have only chosen your tyre size to reach this page, and you would like to buy RUD chains, please visit our "What fits my vehicle?" database to check whether they are approved or not. You should in any event always check your vehicle handbook before buying snow chains made by any manufacturer. If it says e.g. "The use of snow chains is not permitted", this is important information!

Delivery FAQs

When will my order arrive?
There are no deliveries on Saturdays, Sundays or Bank Holidays, except for postable items where Royal Mail has a Saturday delivery. Express Delivery orders placed on a Friday (before 1pm) should be delivered on the Monday or Tuesday, Express Delivery orders placed on a Saturday or Sunday should be delivered on the Tuesday or Wednesday. The arrangements for Very Heavy Items are different and are shown above.

What about Next Working Day delivery?
We have offered a reliable Next Working Day service for well over 20 years but, due to the pressure on the couriers caused by the coronavirus crisis and the huge increase in online shopping, we can no longer be confident about the delivery date, which is why we now call the service ‘Express delivery’. Most Express delivery orders will arrive on the next or second working day, but some will arrive on the second or third working day, or be split between these days. So-called “split deliveries” happen when the couriers do not have enough trailer space for everything that should be moved around the UK, so they will load what they can and leave the rest for the next trailer.

Is my delivery day guaranteed?
No retailer or courier company can ever "guarantee" a Next Working Day delivery. As well as split deliveries, 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.

Do I need to be at home?
We are very flexible with our deliveries and will aim to deliver to an address which suits you – this does not need to be your home address. 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.

There are two parts to our snow chains offer this year:

(1) Clearance prices on many top branded snow chains, including RUD and Thule - an amazing opportunity for those who are quick off the mark! Thule (who are the biggest brand in the car racks market) have sold their snow chains division; the same chains are now being sold under the König brand. Thule branded chains have the same specifications as the König branded versions - all that has changed is the name on the chain and the name on the box.

(2)   Multibuy discounts - significant discounts if you buy two pairs of snow chains at the same time, or one pair of chains and one pair of AutoSock: If you do either of these things, we will discount the snow chains as follows:

  • König, Polaire and Spikes-Spider snow chains - at least 10% off!
  • INNO, Maggi, RUD and Thule snow chains - at least 20% off! Up to 30% off where we have large overstocks.

As usual, you change the quantities in the Shopping Basket.

Many customers will, for example, use snow chains on their driving wheels for Alpine use, and use AutoSock on the non-driving wheels, especially if these are the steering wheels. Also note that AutoSock work very well in very wet snow, even on slush, where snowchains are often not suitable because they can't get any grip in the snow. So having both AutoSock and snowchains makes sense from at least two different perspectives.
