    I'm thinking about getting a set of snow chains for my rear wheels so I can get up the steep hill that I live on, the council never ever grit our street, the surface is made of concrete so most snow quickly turns to ice, what do other member think ?

    It's a reasonable idea but imagine kneeling in the snow to put them on and take them off again before you hit tarmac. You'd be better off leaving the car at the top of the hill!

    If it's just for that small section of road consider snowsocs. Cheaper and easier to put on and take off.
