I'd be interested in what you think of the cable chains for the C-max. The reviews are mostly positive on amazon, but most negative reviews mention fit problems, or failures possibly related to sizing.
I just did a thread on my experience driving to Mammoth mountain and using the Z6, in the "Lounge" section. I also dumped some shots as to how the Z6 chain looks on the CMax 17" wheels and also the possible issues with, taking them off that is. Check it out...
No fit problem at all. It's solid and I have many years with the SCC Z6 chains, abliet its on a different car. None of them broke, and no issues with them. Ok, I lied, I lost one yellow plastic clamp, that was my fault. What people don't understand with these Z6 chains or any other cable chains is that you have to drive < 30MPH and even slower if its just the road with no snow or ice.
Ideally, you want the chained wheels to be over snow as that is what they are designed for - but there are idiots who fang at > 30mph on wet tar roads with no snow - thats how they are destroyed.
A little common sense would go a long way to preserve your chains and your car but its not that common, especially for Angelinos (or for this whole state for that matter).
