    This may be a little bit of a stretch for this forum, but here goes...

    I'm trying to decide between two types of tensioning systems for standard ladder-style link tire chains: Cam-type and Tensioner (Elastic or cable/spring)-type.

    I currently have a set of Peerless cable-type "chains" with cross-members laid out in a zig-zag configuration with elastic tensioning devices. Works well on my 2wd Toyota Tacoma for occasional light snow situations at the local So Cal winter resort areas (Lake Arrowhead, Big Bear, etc) but probably not so well out in the real world (Colorado, Minnesota, etc)

    Anyway, what are your experiences the the tensioning devices for "real" tire chains.

    Wrong forum? If so, please tell me where to relocate it to.

    Thanks in advance for your help.
