Looks like singles to me & Sh!77y style Chains too that I'd rather throw away on the side of the road. You want to bang your chest, Come talk to me when you throw all doubles (triple rails) for drives & steers , with question chaining trailer for drag in the hills. To be honest that style of chains suck, I'd gladly leave them on the roadside after use ! FYI I'm no stranger to throwing chains, it was a all year thing for me, even every load 4 times per day, I can get them tight to a point you can not put a finger between the chains an tire ! ok maybe that finger but no more.


Refers to pulling two trailers at the same time, otherwise known as "pups" or "pup trailers" because they're only about 28 feet long. However there are some states that allow doubles that are each 48 feet in length.

To be honest if you all consider throwing single chains for Donner Pass is needed or a Wow thing. I've never traveled Donner Pass but single chains is a oh wow to you folks, I'm sorry but driving in oilfield hills with ice/mud fully chained up digging in an still sliding off the road into a hill, puts your single chains to a " Ok whatever Boy ! " I think I'll be able to pass Donner pass no problem with my chaining ability even in its worst conditions . Ok I may be ****y but given years of driving in winter conditions all my life and on solid ice with 105K+ I'd think Donners Pass would be ok with chains , I've never traveled it so I have no clue but I think it may be over rated ?
