wondering if I have enough clearance for chains since looks like with the ag tires very little clearance is left between the tires and fenders? Has someone looked into this?

Not sure if this helps, but I run double ring chains with chain tensioners on my M9540 without any problems. Granted your rear tire size is 16.9-30 and mine is 18.4-30, though the fender spacing looks similar.

I wondered about the clearance issue with my L4400, but there is plenty of clearance even with the chains I have with boron caulks about an inch long. Also there would be more clearance if I moved the tires out to their furtherest position, but in the winter I have better room in tight quarters when plowing. Here are some pics :

Not sure what will happen when the chains pick up a big hunk of frozen mud and carry it around the wheel well, or when a branch getws picked up by the chain.
