    my rear tires are 21" 265 , do you think this device will touch something on the car?
    where I leave in southwest of France, there is no snow, no ice on the roads. I will go to ski one week, I will not change my wheels for one trip and less than one hour of driving in the mountains

    I have seen chains on lamoborghinis :) there is not much involved as long as you can clear and not hit the sides the chains should be fine I think I have seen them on Tesla before as well. These look ike zip ties so may break off on harder snow or non snow driving

    It appears they fit tires up to 295 mm so you should be fine. Like the previous poster wrote, you should take is slow in the event one snaps, although it doesn't look like it would do much damage if it does.

    Tesla has had some chain problems with straps wearing the aluminum suspension away. I forget the topic name but it was photographed here. Install them tight and make sure there are no loose ends of the straps that can contact the aluminum bits as they spin.
