Just ordered the ones Mike talked about for my 35's. Looks like tire chain has copies of the Rud chains called Diamond. Talked to them and they said thats not a great chain for offroad and I would be happier with the square link.

We're told at Vail Resorts to always run chains on the front tires (assuming you have a pair not four) both up and down the Mountan. I believe steering is the reason for it. Especially going downhill. Chains on the back if you only have rear wheel drive.

Chains going down *can* be dangerous, if your rear end loses traction and swings around on you suddenly. That's why I skipped having two and just went to four.

I'm starting to think, I sure could use some chains after looking at the 1/1 Yankee run. Little late now I guess, unless someones bringing "extra" that would fit 295.75.16.
Went to DIA yesterday. You guys got pounded with snow. I don;t recall seeing this little amount of snow in Vail in the last 8 years.

chains on rear can be just as dangerous if your front end swings around. at least going down hill and having your rear swing means you can see where you're going when you back down.

I'll try to bring 2 pair of 31x10.50 R 15 sized chains this weekend. I can't use them on my 36x13.50s

yep, I agree. That's why I avoided the whole issue and went with all fours

not having chains can be scary if you are the rig behind Subzali on the spooky night run two years ago. I never knew a 40 could go so fast backwards!

Not to mention the ice I created for the rest of the group because of my spinning tires! For the record that was my dad driving
