chains on dually

This question is for our northern brothers ,When you put chains on a Dually, do you put them on all four rears or can you just put them on say the two inside tires? We can drive in the mud but us southern boys are lost on ice.

You can run singles or doubles.

But for obvious reasons, doubles provide much better traction, but are also harder to install.


One major problem with running singles, is that is you get the rig into a nasty spot, and you wind up spinning the tires too much, the rig will actually get "high centered" on the tire that isnt chained.

That said, chains are primarily for sloppy and deep snow.

Siped and studded tires are for ice traction.
