    I am debating purchasing a set of 4 link tire chains for my 2WD S~10 and was wondering what the max speed would be with them??

    if you buy standard chains any thing over 30-35 mph will take its toll in no time. i usually buy a heavier chain than what is standard. they will get me through 3-4 days of constant use before promblems start showing up. also carry a couple of monkey links , this way you can fix cross links on the road
