Re: Tire Chains - chain type vs aircraft cable type?
If you are just going to carry them for the regulations, get the cables. They are lighter and easier to store. They banned them on most big trucks as insufficient. If I were actually going to use a traction aide like this, I would use the chains.
The cables are kind of a joke really. The only reason they got popular was trucks had to have chains available to them certain times of the year on certain mountain passes. The cables were much cheaper, lighter and easily stored. Hardly anyone ever actually used them.
Like Johnny said, A good tire wood be as much a benefit as the cables would be. Chains however will work good. Just be sure they are on tight and well secured because they will destroy a fender very quickly.
I love it when people do things right
Unfortunetly I dont always do that lol
