Talking Chain Recommendations BFG AT 285 70R17

Hey dudes and dudettes,

I feel like I am going crazy trying to find the right chains for my wheels. I have BFG AT 285 70R17 tires on my 2013 JK Unlimited. In So Cal they require you to carry chains and I would rather have them than slide down the hill.

Can anyone point me in the right direction of a seller and brand? Is there a size restriction or requirement for tires that are larger than normal?

I guess I am Confused and cannot find anything online that will make me feel good about the purchase.

Thank you for your help. And if I appear to be a novice at buying chains it's because I only had old chains that came with the truck I bought so I am.

I always liked the Les Schwabs chains for trucks.

Check out Laclede Chain on-line . We sell their tire chains where I work . The V-Bar chains are very nice . Good luck . If you have questions shoot me a PM and I will try to help .

Try www.tirechains.com their website seems to be down at the moment, probably overwhelmed. They have a lot of good info there. I can't get their site to work currently or I'd post a link to the 5.5mm square link chains I ordered about a month ago. I ordered 2 sets to use on both my truck and Jeep. Or to chain up all 4 on either. Supposedly they work a little better with close fit applications which was more of a concern on my truck.
