I wonder if the Big O warranty would cover any damage?

Op, I'll report back if they respond at all. 🤞
They used to cover it.

Even on my F350 I run radials and have had real chains on them when they broke the sidewall cords on E rated tires and Big O covered them, but the replacement is just for the one tire that has the problem and not the set of them. I also didn't tell them what I was doing when I broke the cords either.

Fall Equinox (light/dark equalization period) triggers the rut, not temperatures.

I carry 1 set of chains in the back of my truck year around. Come winter, I throw in the 2nd set. 50 Cal ammo boxes fit a set of chains perfectly.

I've never torn up a tire... and as a teenager (ok college years too) I did too many stupid things with big tires, a chevy 350 and tire chains.

Critter how far up the sidewall do your chains go? I've always added / removed links to get all my chains to fit my tires well.


PS: this reminds me, I need another set for my trailer. Invaluable on a trailer on a slick road where the trailer keeps wanting to push the truck

You know, it has been at least 15 years since I put chains on my truck. But from what I remember they go up 2-3 inches.

I also carry my chains in a 50 cal can. My neighbor asked me one time if I was worried about someone walking off with it, I than told him that he could have it if he could pick it up and pack it back to his house around 20 yards away. He picked it up and sat it back down and said that he was through with packing it. I showed him the dolly that I used to get the chain box to it's storage place in the garage. I have 3 complete sets of chains, along with a couple of tow chains in that box. Along with a set of jumper cables and a few other things. Even I cringe when I have to pick it up and set it onto the tailgate when hunting season comes around. It goes into my truck even if there is no moisture forecast for the next month. Along with the shovel, high-lift jack, and tool box.

I might dump that box out in the next few days and take a inventory of just what I do have in it and see if I can lighten it up any, which I doubt.

If I can pick it up and carry it to my vehicle, can I have them? 😂

Come to Colorado and give it a try.

Just as a FYI, I'm 6'4" and 240 lbs and the box still gives me a run for my money.

Kind of hit or miss on the bugling this last week for me. A few bulls wallowing and they are starting to round up cows.

As far as chains the best I ever had were cut down semi chains. Now I just try not to tear up roads to get out. I know seasons are short but it amazes me how many people are fine with tearing the crap out of muddy roads.

If you weren’t so far I would! I wouldn’t keep em either, just want to give it a go. It can’t be more than 140-160, right?

I’m 5’10” and 203 but lifting heavy things is kind of my specialty. Right before covid hit my SRM On bench was 315, which isn’t insane but not bad for a dude at 200 pounds. Deadlift was a bit more than that.

Problem now is I can’t lift as heavy as my home gym only has so much weight.. lost some strength for sure but picked up a bit of endurance.

Very true, but a cold front ramps it up big time!

I haven't put it on the scale but my guess is that it is closer to 170+. The first time that I unloaded it from the truck after loading the chains into it I thought that I was going to loose a foot when that full weight hit my arms. I wasn't expecting it to be that much. But when you just keep adding to it you never know how much it weighs until you have to move it. Usually getting it up and down now isn't bad, but if you have to start walking with it you will know that you are packing something.
