    Good Day Folks!

    I have a 2000FordXLT plow truck that I am about to purchase chains for.

    I plow 16 km of logging road when the lumber companies are not hauling and do not have to take the truck on pavement at all.

    I live in the Wawa/Timmins, Ontario area so we can get some fairly cold winters (-45C) and a considerable amount of snow.

    What style of tire chain is best for plowing in my situation?

    Cheers and thanks for the advice!

    If you're not on pavement, I'd opt for the most aggressive. Something like the V bar that can really dig in.
