Tire Chains/Cables on a 4x4?
Yesterday, I bought a pair of Cobra tire cables for my Ranger 4x4. Over the years, I have had several sets of tire cables on my other truck, a RWD Mazda B3000.
Just wondering if I should consider getting a second pair of tire cables since the Ranger is a 4x4. One pair with a spider tensioner is priced at $128 after HST (Canadian Tire). Lordco and another auto parts store wanted $220-$254 before HST.
Since I already have a set of four studded winter tires on the Ranger, I think that I should be good to go in nearly all winter conditions. If I was traveling on the mountain highways on a regular basis, I think that a second pair of tire cables would be worth it. But I don't typically travel on the mountain highways very often....probably 1-3 times this winter (0 last winter).
