Chains

I am travling this weekend and I will be going through some Ice covered roads. What size chains do i need to look for to fit 32x11.50R15?... what is the conversion for 32's i.e. 285...?

Most tire shops in your area will know exactly what size you need. Contact one of them.

are you sure where you are going, you can legally run chains on the road? Where are you going? Alaska?


Google search a tire size calculator and you will get your answer on metric size
