Need reccomendation on tire chains/cables for 35" MTs

Hey guys, wife and I are heading up to Big Bear for a short trip next weekend and I have read horror stories of people being turned around for not having chains when driving up there.

Weather forecast has been changing a lot over the last few days (There's a surprise) and the latest says that it will be rain/snow and around 37 degrees.. so I imagine the odds of icy roads and CHP tire checks may be high. I would be pretty bummed if we got all the way there and then had to turn around and go back due to not having chains..

So better safe than sorry, I figured what the heck could it hurt to buy a set and keep them in the Jeep. Problem is.. I'm having a heck of a time finding anything that is big enough to fit on 35"x12.50 R17 Dynapro MTs. I am probably just not looking in the right spots.. Can anyone recommend something?

I live in San Diego so while we do get down in the 20's every once in a while, turns out you need WATER to make ice and we have none of that. So I probably won't use these very often. Primarily just looking for something that will get me up the hill so I don't get turned around at a checkpoint.

Thanks in advance for any recommendations you guys have.

Thumbs up Big Bear Trip

We drive up to Lake Arrowhead (North of Big Bear) almost every weekend as we own a second home up there. Over the last 5 years, we have always been cleared to pass through the "chain control" CHP Officer as soon as they realized we were driving a 4WD vehicle. They never asked whether I had any chains in the vehicle (we didn't). You won't have any trouble with the snow but be careful if the roads are icy. Good luck.

Came down 38 from BB 2/19 had CHP doing chain check on the way down.

I'm headed to Mammoth tomorrow. I live is Santa Barbara same thing... no snow.

Found a set on Amazon and they fit my BFG 35x12.5x17 MT's YES I did dry fit them in my driveway. have yet to actually see snow with them installed.

Sorry don't have the link search: Security Chain Company SZ492 Super Z8 8mm

SZ492 is the size for 35's i think the official website is pearless chains.
