Tires made for all seasons will not provide enough traction in harsh winter conditions and will not keep you on your path. However, a new set of tires may not be a good choice for some people who are going up in the mountains for a weekend (in some areas snow chains are also required).
Adding snow chains to your vehicle will temporarily solve this problem. By rigging up metal chains to your tires, you are essentially obtaining the ability to dig through slippery surfaces in a way that all-season tires do not. However, driving slowly is recommended to prevent dislodging the chains.
Below we have selected a number of the best tire chains for SKID STEER LOADER. Clearly, chains need to have both performance and durability, so they can safely drive on ice and snow without the chains falling apart midway. Installing and removing snow chains is notoriously hard, a reputation that was earned for good reasons. Although some of our more expensive picks feature quick and painless installation systems, others have more complicated methods. Budget-friendly options may lack the features you’re looking for, but can nonetheless be a good option when you only need snow chains rarely.
Security Chain Company Super Z6 Cable Tire Chain
Whether you drive a car, truck, skid steer, SUV or other vehicle, the Super Z6 tire chain is likely to fit. A low-profile design allows it to fit within the wheel well of the vehicle occupying less than an inch. Furthermore, the chains don’t require the vehicle to be moved or the tire removed during installation. A rubber tension with this tire chain makes sure the chain is always snug against the tire, so you won’t have to constantly check whether they are still on your tires.
Quality Chain Cobra
The Quality Chain Cobra chains are a good option for those on a budget. Tires are in contact with the road optimum amount through the low-profile steel rollers on these wheels. During wintry conditions, the steel rollers won’t rust since they’re galvanized. In addition, the chains will be easy to install since your car will not have to move backward and forward. The biggest disadvantage is that you need to purchase additional rubber adjusters to fit the chains over your tires.
Konig XG-12 Pro
There are a few chains on this list more expensive than the Konig XG-12 Pro. In exchange for an incredibly high price, however, these chains feature some incredible engineering. With Konig’s chains, you can prevent them from pulling away from your tires by micro-regulating the tension. The chain has an interesting design, as you can see when you examine it. In wintery conditions, it gives you maximum traction. These chains come with anti-scratch nylon bumpers, so your wheels will be scratch-free as well.
Suptempo Emergency Anti-Slip Tire Traction Chains
The traction chains supplied by Suptempo aren’t really chains. You can think of them as little foots grips for your tires. Three of these chains are needed for each tire, unlike chains that fit around the entire tire. Grasping the snow is provided by the nine alloy steel nails on each chain. There are certainly a few disadvantages to them, but they aren’t as straightforward as regular chains. They’re cheaper, lighter, and do not need to be adjusted once installed. As well as having limited running times, they have less traction in winter conditions.
Thule CG-9 2-Piece Chain Set
Thule has been designing products for adventure seekers since it was founded in Sweden. Thus, it has some knowledge about how to make it through heavy snow. Among Thule’s more popular products, CG-9 snow chains feature some innovative technologies. Nickel alloy steel constitutes the construction of the chains, which feature an anti-scratch solution for the rims and a dial that allows them to self-tension for precise fit. As part of the kit, Thule provides spare parts, mounting instructions, gloves with chains, as well as spare parts.
Security Chain Company Super Z Traction Chain
Its Super Z tire chains are, according to Security Chain Company, the “easiest installation of any traction product.” In addition to their ease of installation, the chain’s rubber tension won’t need to be adjusted or tightened after installation. Customers that don’t need tire chains all that often can find these tire chains. While they may not last as long as traditional chains or provide the same amount of traction as other options on this list, they still take up little room in terms of storage.
