Tire Chains

5 posts in this topic

I'm thinkin' it may be prudent to have a set of 4 on my Blazer this year. Any suggestions as to brand and/or configuration? When I was a kid, we had chains in every trunk. Now, the only set I have is for my Model A.

Tire chains are great to get a guy out of pinch but for on ice travel they will get you in trouble fast. You can go like heck until you high center and the wheels dig perfect little round holes in the ice FAST, and then you are really stuck in the wheel chocks you just made.

For cruising around in the winter or when the lake turns glare ice a V-bar tire chain hooks up like no other.

OK. I'm just wanting to get my tail out of a jam, should the need arise.

Look at the V bar style with good cam-over hooks, they go on much nicer when your fingers are froze.

      I am definitely in! My boss also gave me permission to start looking at jet boats this spring. We have to get rid of a 3rd car first but I do believe a Lowe 1760 pathfinder with a 115/80 will also be in my future!

      Eskimo cs is top notch. I have had 2 different pop-ups and have a 949i now and love it. Wasn't overly impressed with the flip over pop-up at Cabela's though. It seemed to have less room out in front of you than the other flip over from clam and otter.

      I recently had a chance to go fishing with my friend who recently purchased a Vexilar fishfinder. However we find it incredibly difficult to identify fish in the Sonar image. We tried even the fish alarm under settings but it didn't work reliably, going off at times with nothing on the Sonar image that looked like fish.   Any tips of what we should be looking for in the Sonar image?

      Getting the 6" clam plate hopefully this week. Picked up a brush less 20v dewalt on sale for black Friday. After using moose's drill a couple times last year I am all in on the drill plate!
