Epay had chains for 7 x 16 Jeep tires that I'm hoping will work on my Speedex with 7" ag tires. They look a little long laying them out, didn't try to put on yet. They were army surplus, are brand new and black painted and no rust, cool!  Has some odd cross chain connections (See pix) and little diff connectors than I'm used to, but think they will be good. Plenty of cross-links so hope they stay above the tread bars on tires some.

Looks like replacing a cross link would be easy with that set-up.

Well,  put them on today!  Have those new big lugs on tires and chains are 2-link, but still mostly just fall into the spaces between lugs. A few are not down in and make marks in dirt, so maybe it will work?  Not sure if they will still aid traction even being down in between or not??  At leas they fit pretty good!  Was a good buy I'm thinking.

Same cross link type that I have on my Bolens, they really bite well on ice.
