Oh and don't forget a couple fat chicks to keep you warm if you get stranded and need something to eat. lmao

Good question, I've never ran tire chains or studded tires on anything I own. Always ran wide MTs all year long.

And Alvarez, I don't know how things are in AZ but NY tends to frown on eating your passengers. Something about them having feelings or some BS like that lol.

Figures NY would have a problem with that. You can't wheel on public land. You can't wheel on sled trails. You can't eat fat women if you're staving and stranded in the cold. It's a no win situation lmao.

I have seen chains used with good results, wanted to buy some last winter but they seem so damn exspensive.

Looks like Rugged Rocks is selling them. Little over $250 for 31s. Yeah that's pretty expensive but if you plan on wheeling in the snow I think it would be something I'd be looking at buying. They have them for 38s for all you guys running big ass tires. DMiller

I'd give Steven a call if you're interested. These look to be a new product on his site so it's a little confusing on what ones to buy. Who knows maybe he'd be cool enough to cut a little off the price if you talk dirty to him lol.

I've used http://www.tirechain.com/ before. Good customer service, only used the v bar chains, and the quality on those is excellent. Many different sizes and styles.

Clothier is the reason I started winter wheeling in the first place. He also builds the best chains on the northeast....and probably in the entire US. It also so happens that he lives in NY about 15 miles from me lol. His site is clotheir traction and he builds chains from 31s up to 54s I believe. After seeing the comparison first hand I wouldnt buy chains from anyone else..ever.

He did a set for my Cherokee awhile back.....I haven't purchased any for the blazer as of yet.

You will go anywhere in chains...BUT...they add a ton of stress on vehicles....expecially fully locked rigs. So have to keep that in mind.

Here's my Cherokee with Rons chain on a 33.

This is that same mountain in the spring right after the snow had been melting for a few weeks. Very mucky.... This trail is extremely hard in the winter and chains are a must for getting up the mountain (as you can see in a lot of his videos). This is my jeep before I purchased the 33's with Ron's mean green machine.
