Which reminds me of a story.
My wife spent a winter in Colorado and put studded tires on the van.

We she got back one tire had developed a slow leak so I took it up the Firestone to patch it.

The young employee took one look and stammered 'Of course it has a leak! The tire is full of nails!'

I laughed until I cried as the manger explained to him what studded tires are.
The chains I linked would work with v brakes if you look closely at the pictures in that link I posted you will see that the chains stop at the rim so the brake pads can still grab the rim. I made sure of it before I bought them.

Edit; Sorry I didn't relize someone already mentioned this I didn't read page 3. >. >
