Default Best source for chains?

Hey, all. I've seen them online at sears and autozone but where do you all get your snow chains? I'd like to get a set that'll fit 285/75/16s.

Tirechain.com

I've bought a couple of sets from here. I really like these Diamond Style chains. They are really easy to put on/off and they stay nice and tight.

I wouldn't even consider another source. Good prices, quality chains, and I really like the selection options. No wussy passenger car type chains for me, thanks. (I'm looking at you--Autozone)

A nice pair of chain pliers and you would be set for life...

Been happy with the tirechain.com chains I have for for my truck. I got the standard duty twisted cross link ones, they have been plenty aggressive for me.

I have the nice chain pliers (big ones) and a welder if you decide to build your own.

Once both 40's are finished & tire sizes figured out I may ask you about this. Also, still have your steering stabilizer from this past summer

Sounds good to me. Perhaps we can organize a tire chain building event.
