What our customers say about us
"I just wanted to drop you a note to tell you how great the chains fit and look. I purchased the 44x18.00x20 Roadmaster pattern. I went out tonight and put the left tire on. A perfect fit! I thought for sure I was going to have to fight something."
Why Do I Need Tire Chains?
We don't usually think about tire chains until the icy winter weather starts, and so itís easy to wonder why they are even necessary. There are, however, several compelling reasons why you should invest in a set of snow chains sooner rather than later:
- Laws: During inclement weather some roads in the US are restricted only to traffic that has chains on their tires. Some states have laws requiring truckers to carry chains at specific times of the year, especially in areas where the roads pass through certain high altitudes. Do you know your state's chain laws? Our tire chain laws page has basic state law information. Truckers can also use this page for more detailed information aimed for them: http://www.ooida.com/EducationTools/Info/chain-laws.asp
- Safety: Each year, on average, over half a million traffic accidents in the US are caused by snow, ice and/or sleet, resulting in 146,000 injuries and almost 2000 fatalities. (source: http://www.ops.fhwa.dot.gov ) It is better to be safe than sorry and end up a statistic because you are 'not travelling far', or 'the weather isnít that bad'.
- Productivity: Life has to continue even when it snows. Do you need chains in order to get to work? Do you need chains in order to actually do your work? Whether itís simply clearing your driveway to get to work on time, or hauling a major load cross-country, putting chains on tires will help you get the job done.
