    I have a few very steep driveways, they are pavement and without chains I can't get up the hill after the first pass. I am going to get a pair of chains but after looking there is a lot of different options out there.
    Here is the ones I was looking at, what do you guys think?
    They are the ones down the bottom, Here is the link

    I emailed SCC Chains about this. They recommended their Z8 or Super single cables.

    Thats what I was wondering? What other option would be a good one? just v bar chains or something even less aggressive?

    if you can find a set green diamond tires. thosands of peices of carbide in the rubber. but lots of places are on back order at this point in the season.

    v-bar chains will tear up that driveway finish so fast.

    what you got for tires now ? thats the big question .

    and any balest weight in the back ???

    and air pressure. ?
