Slowed way down and had no problem.

Les Schwab has a deal if you buy chains and don't use them, they'll buy them back.
Paid just under $100 for set and they'll sit in the compartment for a "while".
Best is to not go in the snow.
Better is to need them and have them and made sure they fit before hand.
Worse is need them and not have them or pay stupid $$$ to a road side chain seller.

Hi and thanks for all the responses! Here's an interesting link that summarizes CA law.

Chain Requirements

We just returned from Nevada over Hwy 50, 1 day after the storm. We didn't take the MOHO and were in a car. The road signage is very confusing. There are a lot of permanent, non-electric signs that say "Chains Required". After looking at those signs and thinking about it, I am assuming that the meaning of those signs is that you must have chains aboard your vehicle, not installed on the tires. No one was installing chains in the neighborhood of those signs. Very confusing.
