I did not have to weld the links.

Don't know why the pictures were not coming up for you all. They worked for me when I previewed before posting and then after I posted.

I realize that this thread is over a year old, however, I just wanted to thank you folks that suggested letting the air out of the tires before installing the chains. Took your advice and installed the chains tight and then aired up the tires, chains are as tight as fiddle strings, no flopping, no tarp straps -- I'm a happy camper. :) :) Got to plow a good bit of snow today and will be plowing some more soon -- with a prospective buyer.

i have found that a set of regular ladder chains on an ag tire will slip down inbetween the bars and lodge there. I don't know if they make any small enough but i have seen dimond pattern chains equipt with ice cleats or as dad called them "bear paws". they would work great on ice. only chians i use are double ring field chains on my bigger tractors, i purposly don't run them super tight becuase the chains working and moveing is what cleans them out (mud). if you get the right width chain they can be fairly loose and not walk off the tire. the problem I have had in the past with cubs is me in my chepness :D usually wind up with an old set of free ladder chains off of a twp plow truck.

Those Duo-Grip chains are great, but if you have the 8.3-24 tires all they make is ladder chains.
