Hi Tanveer

We have actually planned our trips based on your inputs from your invaluable thread on Leh-Ladakh and few interactions with you. Our travel plan is as below

02 October 2015 Chamba - Sach Pass - Killar - Keylong
03 October 2015 Keylong to Leh
04 October 2015 Leh - Kardung La - Diskit (Nubra)
05 October 2015 Nubra - Agham Shyok or Wari La - Pangong Lake
06 October 2015 Pangong - Chang La - Leh - Lamayuru
07 October 2015 Lamayuru - Kargil - Dras - Sonamarg
08 October 2015 Sonamarg - Srinagar - Mughal Road - Jammu

We have been advised that a lot of snow can be expected during 1st week October on our planned route. I have no idea what kind of chains are required.

Kindly note the Thar got mud terrain tyres and not the usual tyres for Thar.

Please help. You are better knowledgeable to make a call on this than all 6 of us combined.

Cheers
Renjith

In my opinion you will not need chains at all, esp for the Thar. During October, the snow is usually light, and I have crossed Rohtang after 20th October, and all I required was 4WD.
With M/T tires, you should have no problem.

That said, Lemme find out the model required. I would recommend cables as they are usable on stretches where snow is on and off.

I checked, and Amazon has stopped shipping many items to India. It has been done because Amazon.in is expanding. Unfortunately, such items are not available in India.
You can contact glacier chain or SCC directory
http://www.glacierchain.com/

http://www.peerlesschain.com/

And ask them if they will ship to you after taking payment via paypal.

Alternatively, you can ship it to a friend in USA and he can ship it to India, you pay duty and stuff.

Other option is to buy from sites which get stuff from amazon usa.

That said.
You need 1046 and 1042 pairs. Total cost is around 90$ only.

For tensioner you can get new holland tractor links(rubber suspension links).
