An important question to ask
prior to purchasing from your local dealer, is how many cross chains per
side are you getting. Our tire chains are pre-made for your tire
size. Our volume means we are able to stock the correct set not a
fit-all or one made of bulk. If the tire chains are made from bulk,
normally it uses a wider cross chain which means it consists of far
fewer cross chains and large gaps between each cross chain. For
example, our 18.4-38 uses 24 cross chains per side. One made from
the fit-all bulk only uses 20 cross chains.
duo-grips cross chains are connected in the middle,

it has chain running in the circumference as well as side to side it

Ours, unlike some competitors, use smaller overall diameter links to connect the two
cross chains. This allows for smoother ride and more even wear. Below, arrow point to smaller diameter connecting links.
Normally, there are more cross chains per side on a Duo Grip
style than on any
other pattern of tire chains (double or ladder). For example, A 14.9-28
duo has 22 cross chains. A 14.9-28 ladder only has 16 cross
