If you're "amazed" at the stock tires in snow/ice conditions, then you'll be flat astonished at how your HHR drives with a set of high-end winter tires, such as Bridgestone's "Blizzak" brand.

I have compared other brands of winter tires on a snow and ice covered test track and found Bridgestones to be marginally better and way better than ordinary tires with mud/snow-rated treads.

I often drive in very bad snow conditions-skiing in the northwest-across to Idaho-passes etc.

this is my first winter with my HHR.

As for CHAINS------you can NOT put chains on an HHR? Chains are often required by law enforcement on the passes!

And-does this include/mean the small cable chains? I sure hope they will work-they make your car into a tank in bad conditions!

I appreciate any replies to this issue!

From reading more-I understand that the reason for the chains not working is from the strut/business side of the tires.

Would these thule chains work? Again-I want to reiterate that occasionally on mountain passes the state patrol REQUIRES chains-and is more than happy to pull everyone over without them.

Here is a link to the thules...they only mount to the outside of your tire-
