super singles and tire chains

I'm switching to super single in two weeks. I live in upstate NY and my shop and home are at the top of a very steep hill. If the road is snow covered I always put my tire chains on to get up the hill. I'm using the tire chains with the cleats on them, they're for a single tire but for the smaller dual style tires. Do they make chains for the wide super singles? I really don't want to use the cables.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Yes, they do make chains for wide singles. Should be able to find them anywhere tire chains are sold or get them through a truck dealership.

You can also get ice chains with cleats but they're expensive.

I'm going to be going with the automatic chains from "Onspot". Do a Google search for them and the places where they are sold. Just flip a switch on the dash and instant traction. No getting out and putting yourself in danger on a roadside from other drivers or injuring yourself. Granted they aren't cheap but everyone I talked to will not give them up and told me they are totally worth it.

Careful with chains on super singles. They need to be installed tight and you need to go slow. The weight of the chain, the long span and centrifigual force will cause them to separate a greater distance from the tire and it could hit your fenders, mudflaps, etc. causing damage or breaking the cross link.

Good quality cables might be a better choice.
