Recommended Snow Chains

Hey guys,

Anyone recommend some good snow chains for our runners in the event CHP requires me to put some on?

Never had to in the past but I'll be driving up to Tahoe in the middle of a dump alert and not sure if CHP will require me to put some on.

Also, should I get four or can I get away with just two in the rear?

Cheers!

If it's that bad, I get out and build a fire!

BTW: If you put chains on 2 wheels while in 4WD, they should be on the FRONT! It's easier to pull a string than push it!

Of course, you could only put them on the left side!

Problem is not as much power is distributed to the front wheels while in 4WD. Itís better to put chains on rear and run in 2nd. Best is chains on all 4 and 4WD, but I only see that need for snow plowing and no one plows with a 4Runner.

Check your owners manual. Chains are not recommended for the front wheels. Rear wheels only.

putting chains in your front will probably destroy all the delicate sensors and somewhat important stuff like brake lines that we sometimes need.

OP, you have ko2's..so get some cheap chains to leave in your car. CHP will check your tires, and ask you if you have chains, and wave you through.

I have a plow for my 4Runner. I just plowed my street this week with about a foot of new snow.

But I don't use chains. It depends on where you are and how much ice you get probably. I owned a commercial snow plow company in Montana for a number of years. I never put chains on any of my plow vehicles either. Snow tires work well enough we never needed chains except on equipment like the tractors that have hard rubber for agricultural use.

4runner certainly isn't what I'd choose for a commercial plow rig. Heavy and short wheel base are big positives. But the front steering isn't really up to the task of hanging 500lbs off the front and beating on it. I think you'd be replacing steering racks every season. And rear visibility sucks. I only do my 100 feet of driveway a few times a year and when we get a big dump of a foot of snow I'll go plow all my neighbors who hand shovel or use ATVs that can't manage the deeper snow because my 2yr old loves to go plowing. Haha.

I think the traditional recommendation of front chains was for trucks with most of the weight up front and having them on the steering axle. Probably makes sense, especially on something like a diesel truck that might have 60-70% weight forward. On a roughly 50/50 SUV, going on the rear tires is probably about the same performance. I do think you could get away with low profile cables up front, but it'll be close on the bumper and fender clearance even if the brake and abs lines aren't a problem.

Cheers brother, thank you. Ya I read the manual for our 4Runners and they recommend ONLY in the rear. Makes sense too because I can imagine chains breaking would wreck the front control arms, etc. In instances like this, I'll take the engineers' words on it.

Cheers man! That's what I was thinking too. That's what they've always done but a buddy of mine scared me saying with all the snow being dumped and not enough snow plow operators..because CA vax mandates ya know...they may not be able to clear the roads quickly enough or at all.

I picked these exact ones as well. Been reading good things about them. Hopefully I don't have to use them.
