Snow chains

Hi
Looking at various sets on eBay. They all have a range of wheel/tyre size combos listed. There are some really good offers for ones listing 215/75 16, while our car had 215/70 16. So the million dollar question - will the extra 5mm make any difference? :wink:

Aaarrggghh :evil:

New ones arrived today - size not on the list - I wonder if they'll say "but they will fit fine"....

So back to my original question - do these need to be exact matches?

Cheers
