I've been getting ready to go elk hunting with my Dad. October in the Big Horns in Northern Wyoming can be interesting, and being prepared is never a bad idea. Tire chains are the cheapest traction adder, and I cannot afford a winch right now, so I got one set from TireChains.com for 315/70R17. Due to clearance I got the 5.5mm Square link type (and cost). Arrived in about a week. The cams were a nice addition, made them very tight beyond the rubber chain tighteners. Here are a few pics of the test fit:

On the rear maybe but using them on the rear should do the trick...if needed at all. As long as you don't have the crappy OEM tires, you probably won't need them at all.

Where we hunt folks rock 38" boggers with chains and it STILL isn't enough. Deep mud and snow. Tires just don't get enough traction on hills when it is slick out. I remember a time when we had my Dad's old '78 Chevy chained up all the way and we were pushing snow coming over the hod. If I remember right, we got high centered on ruts, throwing chains due to the rocks underneith. Needless to say, a mud tire will only go so far. Stay tuned, I may take some pictures.

Invest in great tires. I hate snow chains for many reasons. One member had to get a new bed as a chain slipped off and tore his up..
