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.

Sounds good. I remember puttin' those old nasty things on, back in the day. Not fun.

      I know the lakes are open and that means some the first open water fishing spots are producing. Any one out there catching em yet? I will be riggin the ultra light up today so I can stop on my way home from work.
