Snow chains on Wrx g3

Postby Dan004 » Tue Jun 20, 2017 7:16 am

Hi, just looking for some advice on fitting chains to a g3 wrx hatch. Is it possible or are lower clearance chains required?
Thanks.

Are you based in Aus? I've never needed snow chains in my subies in the last 5 winters in NSW.

If you're at stock height I would say that it is probably just trial and error to get the right chains that won't scrub

Based in Victoria so it is a legal requirement to carry chains when travelling to the snow fields otherwise you will be turned around.

Signs at Thredbo say.. All cars must wear chains except 4x4 and Subaru. All the locals drive Subaru. My son works there.

What about those snow sock things are they legal?
