Ebay...$39.00 free shipping.
I bought them oversize and trimmed it down to the right fit.
Inside loop is larger than outside loop so it clears the arms.
Totally tested and big difference!

Thanks for the warning!
I will keep an eye on it at every opportunity.
They are nice and tight though.
And yes, the traction is by far, much better.
Broken ankle, maybe, but I do ride with Alpinestar Tech 3 boots, wouldn't ride without 'em. That should ease the pain a bit if I get sucked into the augers.

Thank you!
It took me three days (part time) to fit the one side.
Cutting hardened chain links, bending connectors so they hug the contours of the tire edge. Then, it took only 1 hour to do the other side, once I got the pattern.
Here's a pic of my first quad I sold about 17 years ago, the guy still has it. Just took the pic a few weeks ago.
His chains are a lot looser than mine but still intact.

I'm going to look into that, thanks.
I'll probably buy another set of tire/rim (ITP 10" w/Holeshot somethings) for the other three seasons. But for now, I can out traction the other riders with deep tires. During that last snow flurry (24") I stayed right behind the 4wd quads while the other 2wd's had to bail.
Of course, the extra ground clearance helped a lot! :birds::birds::birds:
Greenwood lake was excellent during that recent 10 degree stretch.
You gotta hear them when I spin up the ice flows, very cool tone as you grind down the ice!
