Thanks for the chain links (npi
I had no idea there were so many types and styles. And variance in price.
Up here in Southern Ontario Canada, we used to allow studded snows, and I think chains, up until
about April 1971. The banned them because of the damage they did to the roads.
Better to have people slipping and sliding than to resurface every few years I guess.
The most we're allowed now is regular tread snow tires, no chains or studs. They're
optional so far, most people just use all season radials and (hopefully) slow down, but some
provinces have adopted mandatory snow tire laws requiring everyone to buy an extra set of
winter tires. I also think it's outrageous to force everyone to pay for the mistakes of a few, but
that's just my opinion. I've never used winter tires and I've never had a problem. Common
sense works better for me. We might have to get chains though, if we want to drive out there
in the winter months. We may head out that way in February or March again this year. Last
March we headed south to FL to see some spring training baseball, but didn't plan on the lay
off days in the Blue Jay schedule, and just decided to head out towards CA instead to see my
cousin in Los Angeles. If we're in the neighborhood, we could pm you, and meet up somewhere
out your way if you want.
Thanks for the chains info, never even considered it could be a problem,
