Ckain: Welcome to the group, we're glad you're here! :trink: We're in the introductions here, I am going to give you a link with your size,I would recommend that you do a post in the general discussion for more info on the chains, you should be able to get some help on what type may be the best choice.

I have bought 3 sets of tire chains from tirechains.com The latest set was two link medium duty. I had ordered an 8-16 size set and they sent me a 29X9.5X15 set and I wasn't happy. However when I installed them on my turfs I only had to remove one cross link and cut a few links from the circumference chains. So the set was longer than I needed which is a good thing. Much easier to shorten than lengthen!!! I am very pleased with these two link chains and I recommend them. If you feel that you need more traction then you have the option of the V bar two link chains but the price goes up and up with the extra options.

As I posted earlier, I had the same experience with the chains I purchased from tirechains.com. I didn't like to have to modify new chains that I expected to fit out of the box and don't appreciate their curt response that it was normal to have to "adjust" new chains but I would probably order chains from them again. The price was right and they appear to be good quality. If I had purchased them for my vehicle and found myself trying to install them for the first time in a snowstorm on the side of a mountain road I would be REALLY upset! :mad:

Jeez Bart

I would have thought that you would have another truck with the chains already on it :thumbsup:

Stewart,

I haven't seen chains that work well at 80 mph so a permanent installation is not in the cards for me.

You really haven't lived unless you've hit a big snow storm in the Rockies and need to install chains on the fly. Did it once but don't plan to do it again. :sidelaugh:

I've lived through a couple of the them. The last time I just rented them but always have my own set in the car. Don't use them often but I pack a set in every vehicle I own. :thumbsup:

Studded Ice Radials work for me in most conditions. :trink:

I have moved this thread to the main forum because it is a question about tire chains and not about introducing one's self.

I am also editing this thread to remove posts that do not have anything to do with tire chains. Sorry about that but....let's stay on topic and put topics in the correct forums. Thanks for your anticipated co-operation.

John Wayne was tall. :sidelaugh: sorry could'nt resist.

My cousin bought from them for his Kubota powered 1776 Cub Cadet Super or as we call it the "KubCub" and everything fit great. He got the v-bars and wow that thing can push snow!
I might buy from them someday, but I'm good for about 20 years with the ones I have. :thumbup:
