I just upgraded my tires from the OEM Bridgeston Duelers to the Michelin LTX/MS P255/65/R16. I'll be going up to ski resorts in the Reno, Lake Tahoe area more often this upcoming winter, and i wanted to ask the experts in this board what snow chains they recommend. I've asked a few of my friends who also have 4X4 trucks, and they said that as long you have a 4 wheel drive vehicle, you don't need snow chains. Not sure if they're right, so i was wondering if someone out there can give me some good advice. Thanks!!
If you enter 50,80 in the search box it will show you road restrictions. In most cases the restrictions are similar to this:
" CHAINS ARE REQUIRED ON ALL VEHICLES EXCEPT 4-WHEEL-DRIVE VEHICLES WITH SNOW TIRES ON ALL 4 WHEELS FROM 1.5 MI WEST OF KYBURZ TO MEYERS (EL DORADO CO)"
If you want to get a set of chains (or cables), it's unlikely you'll use them if you show the CHP officer you have M/S rated tires and 4WD.
I agree that it is always better to have a chain with you going up to Reno or Tahoe this time of the year...
