Got a note from a guy up in the hills. Seems he did something that is probably happening in this group. He put a different size tire on his truck and found out his chains donΉt fit those tires. If you have changed to a different tire size you may want to read the label on your chain pack if you still have it. Still got mine and checked it after I got that note. jimt
