Snow Tire Chains
If you work in or drive through areas where there is a possibility of icy or snowy roads, it is extremely important to have and properly use snow tire chains. There are two general types of snow chains. The first type are snow chains that wrap around the tire. The second type are devices that swing the chains under the tire as you drive. No matter the type, snow tire chains keep you safe and improve your ability to drive in sleet, snow, slush and ice.
Even if you don’t expect to have to use tire chains often, it is extremely important to have them handy just in case. Some state governments even require drivers to keep tire chains in their trunk in the event road conditions become dangerous.

The benefits of using tire protection chains include:
