Exclamation Need help with tire chains

Alright I have a 2005 Cobalt LS coupe and I'm very worried that chains will not have enough clearance with the front shocks. This is a problem in about two weeks when I have to drive down to San Diego, requiring me to go over Donner's Pass on I-80. I could re-route down 395 but that road has the possibility of being closed. So I'm going to need chains and I don't even think cables will fit my car. Someone was telling me at work that they have alternative devices that connect to your wheels and wrap around most of the tire but I also heard they were pricey and sometimes I question that co-workers intelligence.

oh come on tire cables are perfect for the cobalt. they do not interfere with the shock at all and dont damage your wheels. GImme the tire size and ill find them. ask me if you need the COBRA CABLE part number for the tire size.

I find living in central texas to be your best bet, just move down here and never worry about tire chains or snow again
