Around here several tire chains will not service a car without the exact tire sizes that come stock. Gone larger? Go elsewhere. And Elise with 245s out back? Bye bye.
I never take the car in. I just haul in wheels and tires. "Mount and balance these, please!" The local shop guys LOVE mounting race rubber for some reason. But they always want me to bring the car around later.
