"Also, I don't want some beater Series parts on my truck."

So Series parts are junk ehh?

Ike Goss makes a super gas tank skid for a series tank, you add tank guards on D90 tanks don't you? Or is it just Defender snobbery to not want to pollute your vehicle with true LR heritage parts?

(No real offense taken)

I agree with Aaron, but it depends on your needs. The RUD Grip 4X4's and the Pewag Brenta C 4X4's are practically identical in design, size of chain, and installation.

The only differences I'm aware of are the Pewags have a better design tensioning mechanism and are supposedly made of a titanium alloy steel and I believe the RUD's are made of manganese alloy steel.

The Pewags also cost more so if you only use your chains on occasion the RUD's may be more attractive.

I thought about the differences, and I am convinced that if you install the RUDs properly, they are the same as Pewags.

I think the key is to have a lot of bungee cords to keep tension on the chains.

They also appear to be (nearly) the same as the Konig chains, which are now sold by Thule.

I used a set on my expedition to the Arctic Ocean. They were quite easy to fit, which was a blessing, given the -30 temps during fitment.









The snow was deep, yet extremely dry. The chains would dig down to the frozen ocean below. We could hear the links crack against the ice.

Yes my friend, we are back, safe and sound, in Prescott.

Copper Canyon was beautiful.

As it is now winter I thought I'd revive an old thread. Any new updates on chains?

I can only really imagine going with the following:

Pewag
RUD
Konig
tirechains.com

Personally I would have this on a Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Unlimited with 255/85R16 BFG MTs on 8" rims with 4.75" back spacing.

The tire chains.com chains look awfully similar to the Rud chains in the pictures. I did just receive a set of snowblower chains from them in good order. I have 2 sets of used 255/85 Ruds if you are interested. I went back to a 285/75 tire.

This is a long shot but I'm looking for a set of chains (pewag, RUD, etc) for my 7.5R16 XZLs. I know that some of you guys moved on to 8.25s and I'm wondering if you have some chains for your old tires that you would sell.

I have a set of the RUD 4x4 Grip chains in size 0160.

I'm not sure if these fit the 7.50s or not.

Those might be a little big, but it's hard to say:

Quote:
0160 - 245/85-16, 285/70R15,
32x11.5-15LT, 33x9.5-15LT,
245/85R16, 265/75R16LT,
9.5-17.5, 255/75R17,
265/70-17, 265/65R18,
275/55R19

It looks like the 0141 would be ideal:

Quote:
0141 - 10-15LT, 255/75R15LT,
265/70R15, 31x10.5-15LT,
7.50-16LT, 235/80R16,
P245/75R16, 255/70R16LT,
255/60-17, 8R17.5,
215/75-17.5
