In areas where ice is a definite fact of life, they use bull chains on their ag tires. The crosses keep the chain from getting down into the ags.

The ride is a bit rough tho...

Just in case you or anyone has thought of it, your tight on money, if you have a bucket of short round head screws and a set of old Ag tires screw the screws into the lugs of the Ag tires, poor man's studded tires, works fairly well on ice untill chains are found or made.
Tommorow is another day, you'll get it blown out, the snow won the battle but you will win the war,

I like that. I have a set of ice cleats for my boots that use screw heads for the studs.

Takes a very long time and a battery operated drill is a must, works fairly good on ice, only catch is don't lose a screw or a car tire will find it and releve some air :booboo: .

or even better yet, might be getting electrical ground screws. there green and have a hex head on them but they have a slot cut in them so you can use a flat head drillbit on em.
