Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Marty You have to read the size on your tires before ordering
I am about to order these chains for my 30" Platinum Ariens snowblower. I found out in the Home Depot store, which does not carry these chains, that there are multiple tire sizes for these snowblowers. So, I came home and looked at the tire size on my tires. They are 15x5.00x6, so these chains will fit perfectly. If you have 16 inch tires, you're not going to get these on regardless of how much to try. It's like trying to put a square peg into a round hole y'all. And thank you Home Depot for offering these at, what I've found after many Google searches, to be the best price in store or online.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DL2244 Why did I wait to get these?!
We have a very steep driveway and it's a challenge for the snowblower to climb it without sliding around. Once I put on the chains it seemed we could go through anything. What a huge difference. I should have bought them a long time ago.
Now my wife and daughter can more easily control the snowblower and safely use it when I'm out of town. It's worth it just for that peace of mind.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Jerms These Chains Don't Fit Ariens Deluxe 30! Deluxe 30 tires are 16 inch
These chains look great and I'm sure would be awesome. BUT..... I should have read the reviews. Israel is right, these chains don't even come close to fitting the Deluxe model (well, the Deluxe 30 model anyway). Please Home Depot, correct this problem. I'm sure I'll have no problem returning these but it's very frustrating that this is listed to fit my model of snow blower but not be the correct size.

The newer Ariens machines have different tires than those that came with the ones of the years past. They're more rounded and flatter rather than squared and knobby.
I live at the base of a small hill in Boston. Getting the snow blower up the grade of the sidewalk wasn't working without these chains. I've gone through several storms with the addition of these chains and it's night and day.
I highly recommend these if you need added traction or have any appreciable grade to drive up.
