Here in Wa. on the mountain passes they require chains on vehicles over 10k. when traction tires are required (maybe advised). That will include most of us RVers. There can be a $150 fine if you don't carry chains during winter months. I'm sure other states have similar laws. There is some relief for 4X4 but won't take away the need for drag chains on trailer.

Several times in Idaho I've had to chain up the big truck to get up the hill and then chain the trailer on the way down. That was when I was young & foolish, Now I'm just old and LAZY

What part of Idaho were you in? I grew up in the Clearwater valley.

Hi xc,
I contacted the link you supplied. They DON'T have every chain. I asked for LT 235/85 R16 & LT 265/75 R16. They DO NOT HAVE THEM.

this web page will have every tire chain known to man.... great to deal with , I got my plow truck stuff in 3 days. If your in the mountains I think chains on at least one trailer axel is a good idea . Towing my 4500 lb snow mobile trailer in the mountains in high winds and heavy snow I have never had a need to chain up the trailer , If you need chains on the truck to pull then its not a bad idea to have some on the trailer to stop and keep it strait !

I thought the same thing so I called...They have a set listed for the 235/85 R16 in the single wheel v- bar cam section in the truck section. Click on the big red plow truck to open it up.
