Does anyone know the length and width of a 23x10.50x12 chain?
I'm thinking of making a set out of some car chains.

Larryd,

Hey Larry. I just went out and measured the ones I have for 23x8.50x12. They do fit on the 23x10.50x12 tires I have but I would prob make them a little wider.

They measure 56 1/2" long and each cross section is 10 1/2" long. If it was me I would make the cross sections 12" long.

Hope this helps some. The length I gave is end to end.

Have you checked tirechains.com. They might have the info there as they sell all the bits for making chains like hooks, cross chains etc.

My chains are of the Ford w/23 X 10.50 X 12's. They are the same length that Chris put, 56.5" without the clasp. But they are 16" wide. Hope this helps.
