nah...

some states still require you to carry chains even if you have 3 peak rated tires or snow tires as a precautionary measure (due to whatever snow advisory requires it such as california).

I personally never had to put on chains w/ BFG ko2's and 4hi. Although it doesnt mean I wasn't sliding all over the place in certain conditions (new snow/non-plowed mountain/resort road). Chains would have made it less butt puckering until i made it to the highway/freeway.

3 peak tires are cool for people who dont want to have 2 sets of tires, or who don't live in an area with a real winter (such as me).

I still carry a set when i go up to the resort towns.

I run chains on all 4 going to the cabin, itís a narrow trail with short steep hills. 4 low and slow!! I had to trim the bottom of the front bumper but everything is good now.

i personally wouldn't put chains in the front, if the chain accidently hits the spindle and deflects into the brake line or speed sensors.......you will get the christmas tree dash lights.

Chains, because Iíve had people with cables beg me to rescue them when they went down the wrong driveway. I assessed the situation and suggested they flag down one of the big Caterpillar tractors doing driveways. Just a big grade they were stuck below and it was solid ice.
