    I recently acquired a Landrover Freelander 2 HSE and am chasing a set of chains suitable for the tyre size, being 235/55R19.

    It seems to be a unique size and it is proving difficult to find some second hand/used/not $400+. If you have a set of suitable chains that you would consider selling, please let me know. I believe another common vehicle with this size tyre is the Hyundai Santa Fe.

    Thanks,

    Tom

    The FL2's don't need snow chains unless for legal reasons (Vic?). I took mine into the snow regularly and never had any troubles at all. At one stage I looked for chains but gave up and only got rid of it when it refused to start one afternoon as an almighty blizzard was approaching and I'd decided to bale out from Island Bend Campground. I miss those sensational driving seats tho!

    They're mandatory for most mountains in Victoria. And Tom indicates on his profile that he skis Buller, Hotham and Falls.

    You need size 250 chains - not an unusual size at all.
    RRP for Konig Zip/XB16 (16mm manually tightening) is $254 new.
    For XG12 - a thinner chain (12 mm self-tightening) RRP is $396. Best if your wheel clearance is limited.
    For the Magic 8000 (16mm self tightening) RRP is $448.
    Note: 2017 prices.
    I would be happy to sell you some ex rental Zips for $150 - still in very good condition or very good condition ex-rental Magics for $300.
