Re: tire chain recomendations
When I put P rated snow tires (Copper M/S) on my truck, I had to put LT rated cables on because the passenger cables wouldn't fit on the beefier snows. So you might spend the extra money to buy Light Truck rated to make them easier to put on (less struggling).
You'd get better traction out of the diamond chains. The only disadvantage of diamond vs. ladder is the price. Well, also the ladders might be easier to repair.
I have cables and chains for my truck. If the roads are hard-packed you could easily break the chains whereas the cables can take the abuse. The chains work better on fresh snow.
