Sooo. I was looking at buying tire chains, and found that there more out there than the old ladder type twist link chains that I was used to growing up.

Has anyone used the
" WHITESTARâ„¢ DIAMOND-PATTERN TIRE CHAINS " http://www.jcwhitney...Ntt=tire chains

I am getting them primarily for deep snow, not on road or mud use. Regular 4wd and good tires works fine most the time, but when churning through snow, I could use more. To be honest, these are for my truck, not my suby, because it doesn't do as well as the suby in 4wd until I get in stuff deep enough that the suby would be high centering. But I might get some for the suby too if I like them.

Are the diamond pattern ones really better than the ladder type chains? Or easier to get on? Why should I pay $178 for a set of four instead of $72 for a set of four ladder type chains.

The "better" chains available primarily work better on ice. If you're just going through snow, I'd buy whatever is cheapest.

On a soob, I don't know if there's room for regular chains. I carry a set of cable chains with me, and they fit just fine, but I don't know about anything else.
