Wow .. pricey!
When I was driving TT & garbage trucks, I found most people had a hard time with chains because of the way they installed them. I'd watch guys lay the chain out on the ground, back over it, then fight gravity trying to hook it from the top. I always draped the chain over the wheel, backed up just a couple feet, and got it all secured down low. I'd have both sets on in 10 minutes tops. I sure don't miss that part of the job .... or ANY part of it for that matter.
Threw my snows on last Thursday. Thank God .. because I had a late night with old friends at the city bar on Friday, which had me driving people to Worcester, then all the way back out into the sticks to my house. The roads were trashed. All the rain had turned to sleet and snow while we were inside partying. I'd have been off the road for sure with my summer tires!
My 3rd season with the Blizzaks - they're still awesome. Surprised to see the ratings so low though ... but that's the 'Rack for ya.
