As far as just getting over a pass after a snow.About 6 years ago I almost lost my son and he
did loose 2 years of his life just trying to get over the hill to get home rather than wait,a car came across a 100 ft. wide median and hit him head-on!!!!!!! He always said he did not worry about his driving just the other guy WELL GUESS WHAT1111111 Better think before chains.
I have 37 years on the road and about 3 million
miles with out an accident by not taking chances to get home or anywhere.

CompuDoc's link has another bonus. Click on "conventional tire chains", and that website has links to each states tire chain laws. Thanks CompuDoc!
