Tire chains

I'm thinking about getting a set of chains for the quad. Mainly to use on the lakes ice fishing. Thought about tracks or a sled but don't really want to shell out the cash. Chains would be a cheap option.
Anyone have much experience with them on the lakes or just in general?
Thanks!

Never ran chains but looking at the snow we have this year already i would imagine chains would be no good? Chains would be good for a certain amount of snow then ur hooped i would think?

Put chains on my '07 Suzuki 500 two years ago, and its the best investment I made in terms of traction.

Have a Yamaha 450 with MudLites on it and it will get stuck in snow in a heart beat. The Suzuki with 50% left on bone stock tires with chains runs circles around the MudLites, and two of my buddies have '07 Suzuki's with bone stock tires and they are stuck beside the Yamaha.

For $100.00 chains are the best and cheapest traction improvement purchase you can make.

Thanks

I thought about that but my MST's have sipes so I don't think studs would work.

Are you guys running chains all the way around or just on the back?

All 4 wheel positions. JoeDirt nailed it 75% of the time its no issue. Use mine all the time for ice fishing etc. Often don't even take the plow off. Seems to work great with the extra weight of the plow and riding two up is amazing what I can go through.

Tracks or wheels, hung up is hung up and you're digging, nothing is 100% bullet proof. Know the limits and you're good to go.
