    Default Alternative Chains

    They don't show these for tractors but you might be able to make a set if you were inclined. They show them for pickups, though.

    We put a set of those on a new Western Star for an O-O a few years ago. Of course, this was the same guy who put so much gingerbread on his truck the bottom line was over $216,000! [img]/w3tcompact/icons/shocked.gif[/img]

    $216k for a StarCar ain't bad, especially if it's Pussypowered.
    9 years ago a twin screw StarCar with 60" doghouse cost $195k, and it wasn't tricked at all.

    All those things do is make noise as you drive down the road. We had them on our firetrucks. Useless!

    I will give Onspot credit though, they do some good marketing. They were frequently spec'd on new ambulances & rescue trucks heading for snow country.

    For a tractor, conventional chains are the way to go!
