The only thing I know about chains is that when I see this on Craigslist I call:

"Tire Chains, 6 sets + repair kit. Fit Toyota Land Cruiser, Jeep Cherokee and Chevy Wagon. Box of Alternators and Alternator Parts for GM, Ford, Chrysler. You Pickup."

Edit: I don't think he had what he thought though, after I take a better look, I may have some to give away.

I think I'm going to order the chains from tirechain.com. Every year I wait until the week before the snow run to think about this. Not this year!

Matt,

I have the set that Treeroot linked to from tirechain.com. Bought them for my '76 that had 33x12.5 15 BFG ATs on it to be used when going hunting. Like most things I bought for my '76 they never got used...

I'm not looking to sell them but if yours don't arrive in time OR if you'd like to borrow them OR like to trial fit them before ordering them let me know. I have the tensioners etc and could even show you how to put them on if you've never done so.

Never used the ones Burke sells but those look like light duty car/truck chains...More of an around town chain or light duty off road. One concern would be their way of "tensioning" the chains. They look an awful lot like the car tire chains and light duty truck chains that Tire Chain sells (http://tirechain.com/CarChains.htm http://tirechain.com/16INCHTRUCKCHAINS.HTM)

I never had a chance to use my Tire Chain chains but I bought them after a couple times up hunting with relatives outside of Ski Sunlight and seeing the abuse the chains would take. And, I saw why having properly tensioned chains was a must.

Maybe with some additional tensioners/adjusters (http://tirechain.com/TireChainParts.htm) they wouldn't be too bad...

I bought a set of Bill Burkes chains last year and never used them. Now I have bigger tires and need chains again.
