    Chains or no chains?

    Ok gang, I'm about to venture into the snow to Tahoe in he next few days. A common mistake I've made in other vehicles dare I say the old Toyota pick up is, not carrying, chains that is. So my question for the group is what has been your experience with needing chains with the jeep. Will CHP require you to have them?

    Any feed back is appreciated. Before I drop $ on chains for 35" mudders.

    Cheers oh and merry Christmas, festivus and merry new year!!

    If there is an inspection station, you will have to have either triple peak rated tires (BFG AT' or Blizzak's) or a set of chains. Stop in at a Led Schwab, they will fit them onto your tires for you to make sure they fit.

    CHP will turn you around if there is ice on the ground. Also check the CALTRANS website before you leave.

    Snow rated and triple peak rated are 2 different things. See below.

    I don't have any experience with chains but my BFG MT's are horrible in snow, especially hard pack snow/ice. They make my jeep slide all over the place.
