Just subscribing to follow the thread, and not lose track of a possible source for these.


If your having difficulty finding chain, have you seen the claw type made from a bent/cut plate? Just a thought to cut costs or help the project move forward, but I think yours look higher quality and more durable.

Still working on it guys

Working on a couple of possibilities but the main issue is that people are telling me that they are completey out. I tried finding enough car/truck chains but they are very few and far between. Most are used........

I've got to go to Utah for a week but will redouble search efforts once I return. Thanks for your patience.

Chris

How deep can you go?

I'm wondering how effective these chains are in snow.
Can they handle 6 inches of fresh snow?
They would be great in trails on the packed white stuff.
I think studs on the front and chains on the back would be a great combo.

What do you think of just a knobby up front without chains or studs?

I just figured out that a set means just the back wheel.
No chains on the front.

How did you figure that out? I was under the impression all along that a set was for front and rear..??

I'm not sure anymore.
I saw his other thread and he was experimenting with the back only.
Now that I have read more, he has chains or both front and back.
So I guess it's for both.

Bit I'm still skeptic about the front.
Would studs not be better?

Hey guys. Still working on a source. I'm convinced that the chain industry doesn't want other little startups coming along and giving them any competition - even though I'm looking at a totally different segment. I've been getting a lot of "We'll call you back" , followed by a very long silence........

China is starting to look like my only option. As much as I hate to get anything from China. That's how the ATV chain guys do it so cheaply.

To clarify - The original deal was for both front and rear chains. I commented in another thread that I had good results just using the rears offroad.

Yeah, Studs would work better on both the front and rear. The cost of studs/spikes and the overhead associated with changing tires based on conditions is where I'm coming from. Chris has had good luck with these and I figured it's worth a try, I am hopeful they hold up on the rough terrain I ride. I will tread lightly...at least to start.

Did you sell your chain set? I have a dneprmt16 so need 2 sets (I will only run on back drive wheels) do you run 8 per wheel? could you make a set up for me? I could do it myself but why reinvent the wheel? I like the v chains. I see the motorrad (snow blades) that aren't as agressive (probably road use). I need offroad use. I will be mounting a ski to my front wheel. If you can't make them up advise on sources for webbing, especially v chain and locking clasps (are they cam lock?) why wouldn't d rings work? thanks. ps my email is superfin1969@yahoo.com

80 dollars would be a bargain. pps even with stock tires and 2 wheel drive I can tow a trailer on snow and ice. but thinking of deeper snow needs..

I am interested for snow chains for the rear tyre.

I was trying to figure out the maths:

Rear tire is 150/70/18. I start with the assumption I want to go with a 18" size chain.
sidewalls + tire width = 150 x (0.7 + 1 + 0.7) = 150 x 2.4 = 360mm

from http://www.rackattack.com/thule-fit-...-fit-guide.pdf I need to go for:

205 x (0.40 + 1 + 0.40 ) = 205 x 1.8 = 369mm No 085

Is it working that way?

I think these chains are a great idea, but did anyone notice that

THE OP COULDN'T FIND A SOURCE FOR CHAIN 2.5 YEARS AGO!?!

(I did wonder what was with all the tire size guessing- why not just sell them as "This chain fits a 12-15" circumference tire/wheel- go measure yours.")
