Hey everyone. Will tire chains fit P235/75R15 Goodyear Wrangler Radial tires without hitting the wheelwells? I am looking for better traction, but I have no place to store whichever set is not on the truck. I also need something easily removable.

You can probably find a set of chains that will fit your truck, but most passenger car chains are designed for 215/70R15s at the most really. You're probably better off getting a cheap set of wheels and snow tires, unfortunately. Or at least 2 snow tires: put them on your steering axle. being able to GO means nothing when you can't steer.

you'd be surprised how few people can understand that.


it's like all the ***-hats i've had to deal with when building up their projects. what's the point of having 500 horse under the hood, when your stock 90 hp brakes won't stand up to it?

Also, the point of having a quad-twincharged V24 LS6000 25000HP 60klb-ft torque engine when the speed limit's 80 at the most. I get riding around in style, but uh... there's a reason chevy only put a 262 in my blazer. heh.
