I bought these at a garage sale for $5 a couple of years ago. Thought I would try them out this winter instead of the heavier chains, which make the ride pretty rough. I have liquid ballast in my tires and a hunderd pounds or so in the weight box....plus my fat rear.......Granted, we havent had much snow this year, but they seem to be doing a great job on the ice. Good grip and no rough ride. Anyone else ever used these?

I like the idea, you're right the chains are rough. I've used them for the past week(first time ever) and keep looking down at tires thinking to see one of them flat! I'm going to keep my eyes open for some.
