    Tire Chains

    Did some searching and I am not having much luck finding chain recommendations. Anyone know of a good heavy duty chain that doesn't require modification for the rear tires? I have a 1025r FILB.

    This is what I used. I did cut out a little bit of the tail just to keep them from whacking something vital on the insides, left the outside long. Just be sure you have your air pressures up.

    Worked really good! They are a peerless brand.

    Tire Chains

    Tire chains.com is good but be prepared to remove about three3 cross links from ea tire.
    The cross link hooks are not hardened but the extra chain left over is.

    Deere sells chains for 1025.
    Maybe check with Green Farm Parts in vendor section to check their price.

    I bought Deere chains last year before a big blizzard we never wound up getting.
    I think they are fine. I just put them on for this season.
    Got a long driveway with a lot of ice build up cause it's through the woods and gravel. Doesn't get a lot of sun.
    I'm sure they speced them out pretty good. Even though I believe they are imports.

    If your driveway is gravel, I would recommend getting the 2-Link V-Bar chains. I have the backhoe with R4 tires and do not have any issues with clearance.
