Ancra Cargo, which designs and manufactures cargo handling and restraint systems, recently introduced a new line of X-Treme Grip tire chains for severe weather conditions.
The company said its X-Treme Grip chains provide strength, durability and stability, protecting drivers, equipment and tires in the most demanding traction control situations, from the ice roads of Canada to the Rocky Mountains, in the woods or on logging roads.
Available in V-bar, stud and square-link options, X-Treme Grip tire chains offer unparalleled strength and durability in nasty weather conditions such as freezing rain, ice, and snow, Ancra said.
V-bar tire chains have a plated silver zinc finish and are meant for use in unfavorable highway conditions. Each twist-link cross-chain on these heavy-duty snow chains is outfitted with V-bar studs that bite into the ice for superior traction on frozen roads. Heavy-duty stud tire chains are preferred for off-road applications such as logging and navigating treacherous terrain. Square-link chains are coated with a protective plated silver zinc finish and should be utilized when highway conditions consist of snow and ice.
All X-Treme Grip tire chains are available in a single- or triple-chain alternative. V-Bar and studded chains are 8 millimeters, and the square-link chains are 7 mm. Tire size requirements may vary, and repair links are available for every X-Treme Grip part number.
Ancra X-Treme Grip tire chains consist of cross-chains and sidewall chains constructed of high-strength carbon steel for maximum durability. Each set ships in a reusable storage container with a tensioning tool included. All triples include one chain per pail, with two pails making a complete set.
Tensioning cams allow for fast installation and quick adjustment. Installation and removal is quick when following the seven steps provided in the installation guide in each container.
Driving with X-Treme Grip chains helps increase fuel efficiency and traction control on snowy, icy or rugged surfaces, the company said. They can stabilize a vehicle in deep snow, which is why they’re still a viable option for creating stability in winter and having the ability to operate a vehicle safely in the most extreme conditions.
