    Anyone prefer a specific brand or design? I'm driving to Tahoe tomorrow and there's gonna be snow. I have 4wd but I'd rather be prepared for a just in case scenario seeings how I have those bfg rugged fail tires....

    Also do I put chains on the rear or can I put chains on all four wheels?

    I dont run chains here, but I can tell you only on the rear. Clearance issues with UCA's on the front.

    unless it's r-3 you don't need chains for a 4x - you may have to show them to CHP if asked !
