A friend of mine bought a set thru Fountain Tire.....they had to order them but they are a lighter version than I have and much easier to handle.

They definitely have the cam tighteners on them....I'm about to meet him to go get some coyotes, I'll get all the details and post in a bit.

I'm actually just having a flashback that maybe he got them from the local NAPA store.

Go to Gregg Distributors, Get the V bar chains, pick up 4 ARCTIC Bungees per tire (to take the slack out of the chain), fit them on first as you will likely have to take a link or two out for a snug fit, and when you use them, NEVER hit the brakes hard. You have 1 :1 traction, and you will take out a U joint if you lock up the brakes.

Yeah, he got them at NAPA and thinks he paid about $120 . Napa had to order them in for him but only took a coupla days...so he likely got them from some distributor in the city.

We were just picking up some hides from our hutterite skinner.

You got that backwards Drewski !
Slamming on the brakes might damage some lugs,
trying to spin the tires might rip out your drive shaft !

Continental Chain is more than likly the suppler for Greggs,As they were Alberta Chain a few years back if I am right !

I would phone around for best Price
