Okay, gotcha. If you've got AT's you're off to a good start. I drove on ice highways when I was living in the arctic, I kid you not, highways made of ice! Accross lakes, etc... I never aired down, all I did was take a lot more care when going into corners (MT/R's, horrible tires on ice and hard pack). I'm sure airing down would help, hopefully someone else can help you out with that.3rdidvet said:That's good info, but I'm talking about while running on the highways. Had a real bad experiance with a grader and a BIG cliff up on I-80 a couple years ago on the same trip, and I want to make sure I have the best control I can. The highway turned to glare ice, and those of you who have been over Donner Summit in real bad weather know how hellacious it can get. I also had smaller tires. I'm wondering if airing down slightly might be better than running typical highway inflation.
Cables I have never heard of these. I take it that they are similar to chains?01tacoboy said:For the best traction, run chains or cables. For airing down on road, I don't think I would go below 15psi. Find an area to test different pressures and find the one that works best.
They are similar. They are almost like a winch cable wrapped back and forth over the tire. They are used on vehicles with low tire to fender clearance.jjrambo said:Cables I have never heard of these. I take it that they are similar to chains?
