Hi,

 

I've been searching the internet, but I can't find the size of chains for my Case 444.

Hoping someone would know off-hand the correct dimensions.

 

Would like to know what size to watch out for.

 

 

Thanks.

I believe 205/75/15s will fit, small truck chains in other words

Thanks, but I'm watching local ads and would like to know how wide and how long the chains should be for my big-wheel case.

 

Wondering if someone happened to know what width and length to be watching for.

Circumference is diameter multiplied by 3.14, Just punch the height of your tire into your calculator and hit the Pi button, you will need to add 4-6 inches for the latches. For the width, just add 2-3 inches to the width of your tire for wrap around, so around 100" x 12" might be pretty close, just doing in my head.

motobreeder,

 

Here's a link to a post from a while back. I have a '71 444 and once was in a similar hunt for info myself. After you take a look at the .pdf found through the link below let me know if you have any additional questions.
