While at our yard in Oswego Il found some cool chains ,now if we can find them in cub size for you snowplowers out there. They are on a cat 988H loader special ordered for steel mill duty. They are called tire armor to prevent hot slag and steel from contact with tires. If you notice cab glass is 2inch bullet proof and heat proof and it comes with a automatic PUT ME OUT QUICK system in the cab. It dont show up in pic but on back of cab is a Im on fire strobe light for when things get to cookin. We deliver several of these a year to mills around country usally a replacment for a toasted one .

Assuming that is Rabbit Holler Flash's hand in that picture, those links are quite large, because his hands are huge.

A set of chains like that would almost eliminate the need for wheel weights. They probably weigh as much as a wheel weight.

One of those chains weighs more than a cub lol. Im 6'-3" tall and those tires are taller than i am and yep thats my paw for a size comparison. I belive i heard a mechanic say 3900 lbs per chain. They use a 3ton comealong to tighten them up.

if they use a 3ton comealong to tighten them up, what do they use to mount them?

They swing em and hang them with a 6500lb service truck crane. Watched a set go on today while waiting for my trailer to be repaired.
