Thule snow chain.

I have a 2010 4X2 tacoma sports. I am interested in purchasing snow chains as I have to carry one to go up the mountain in california. I am looking at Thule XG12 Pro 265 (p265 65 R17). JC whitney have it for $229 minus 20% off. I heard it is really easy to put on. I go quite a lot and would like to have ease of putting it myself instead of paying someone.

Any suggestions or input is appreciated!!!!

I personally hate putting on chains. If you can spend a little more money you should get these. http://www.spikes-spiders.com/catalo...tegory/?id=530

I was thinking of getting a similiar one without the chains for my mom's minivan, I just couldn't find a cheap set on craigslist.

That's a lot of sheckels for tire chains. Rud makes a good product:

Should be at least as easy to install as the Thules.

Another option, I got mine here: http://tirechain.com/DIAMONDSTYLECARCHAINS.htm
I have had them for two years now and they have done very well in the snow.

They are easy to put on, even after you are stuck (I know first hand), and are about $125 a set.

I just picked these up today for $70 from walmart. The ones I got for my 245/75/16 says it fits your size as well but now you have me wondering if they are too cheap which I originally thought were pricey. What is the difference?
