Truck Tire Chains

Recommended Posts

Just ordered some chains for my truck. 

1.) getting a lot of snow lately 

2.) as a new ice house owner I’ve become to realize I’ve been limited to the community spots; now I’d like to be on my own more


im curious for those who tow ice castles if they chain the front or rears; researching the topic has various opinions; front to pull not push; rears if you have limited slip. Not worried about weight in the back

Got a cousin that just bought them for his 3/4 ton quad cab chevy diesel. He ended up putting them on the back. Said that he doesn't know how he went this long without them.

slapped them on the front yesterday since i didnt have the house hooked on for rear weight; just too much snow in general, front end just kept pushing snow and eventually stopping the truck. for starters i got hung up and stuck trying to break away from the plowed road and as others have mentioned, it doesnt take long for you to dig a hole in the ice when your tire starts to spin!

if the snow melts another 1" or 2" should be able to get around or if my frame sat up another 2"; overall i think it will be alot nicer to slap the chains on when the snow isnt this bad to maneuver the house alot easier off of the plowed areas. 

chains didnt take long at all to slap on either, <10 min, should get faster;  using the simple  style V bar quick grip by Peerless
