When I had stock wheels and rubber on my Sahara, Chains on rear tires would probably have hit brake lines, etc. and tore hell out of stuff.
Once the chains were on, they were real close to the lines. Now with wheels that have 4.25" backspacing, I have lots of room.
Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by its clean end!
