I am heading to Bend OR in December and have been advised to get some snow chains. I have a 2020 5.7 4x4 1500 Limited with 60" tires.
One of the threads I saw mentioned S class chains are to be used and only on the rear.
Any ideas of a type and where I can purchase a set? I looked at etrailer and those advertised were not S class rated.
I don't mind paying extra for quality ones that are easy to install.
Thanks.

Wonder if he meant a 60 series profile, ie: 275/60/20. If he actually did mean 60" tires,he's probably looking at a custom set of tire chains,and he'll need his big wallet to pay for them,lol

If youre a bit of a redneck you can use almost any chain just need to heat and push in your wheel liner a bit. I have a set of cut down big rig chains with the stand offs for extra traction.I built these a couple years ago and have never had an issue. Just use good tire chain bunjees to keep tension to the outside and make sure your tag ends are either taped or wired so they don't come loose and flop around. That said I live in the Yukon and have never yet had to use chains on the highway to get anywhere, just good tires and 4x4.
