Re: [MV] Tire chains on a 5 ton or a 2 1/2 ton

The rears on an American mil 10 wheeler are in all wheel drive all the time.
The 8 tires (or the 4 that are touching the ground) should be of the same size
to within 1/4" diameter as I recall from the manual. Puting chains on one axle
would be a mistake IMHO.

In WW2, the CCKW's were issued with 10 chains. I have a set but they have never
been on...
