    Tire chains recommendation!?

    With winter quickly approaching here, and hunting season in full swing.. I'm starting to think about thinks that I need to have in my truck at all times... One thing I don't have that I will be getting this week is a full set of chains for it. I run duratracs. Any recommendations on a good set of chains and where to pick them up!?

    Cheers.

    I get mine at Midway Tire, Tirecraft on 72nd Ave. in Surrey and I use heavy V chains not the wire cable type.

    Like campking said get heavy duty v bar chains, donít waste your money on the cable style chains, kal tire also sells them.

    Bought several sets at Loewen Forestry Eguipment off Dalhousie in Kamloops. Always went with v-bar, but I think they sell Tryggs too.

    Trygg is one of the best chain manufactures. And like others have said, avoid cable chains, completely useless for a pick up.

    I have some v-bar chains I ran on my 245/75 R16 Duratracs. I don't need them anymore since I now have 285's.
    I could sell you them for $200 for 4 of them if they fit (retail for like $250 for 2)

    I really appreciate the offer. I'm running 265/75/R18 on my Colorado though.

    Cheers.
