    I've Thought about the chains and I think they are the best Idea. Now I need to know where I can get some good 33x9.5x15 tires. Like Buckshot Mudders or another good snow tire. I may have to go with BFG A/T's. I really didn't want to spend that money if I didn't have to. If you know where I can get a good all around set of snow tires let me know. Thank You.

    Looking for chains for my 32" BFG AT KO's also. Anyone have good recommendations on where to purchase or what brand? Don't want anything thats going to chew up my sidewalls.

    Thanks

    Not sure where you guys are located (since I see nothing in your profiles about location) but Les Schwab in the Pacific NW supposedly has or can get chains for darn near any size tire.

    I just went to pep boys and bought a set of 33x12.50-15 for 60.00 a tire. They are Futura Dakota RVT and they a similar tread design as BFG's. I went out in the snow which then turned to mud and they will dig till they "bite in." I just did not have the money for BFG's. They are 6ply. They don't have the tri-guard sidewall though. BFD. Hope this helps.

    tirechain.com has some of the best prices around. They are cheaper than autozone. At autozone, it was 100 bucks for a pair for my 31's. It is half that at tirechain.com
