16.5” x 6.5” tire chains
I put them on the front tires of my John Deere D160 garden tractor. I had rear tire chains which transformed the tractor from almost completely useless in winter to great but I had trouble steering still. The tractor would sometimes plow straight ahead when I wanted to turn. These chains on the front were another huge improvement. The lever arm for tightening the chains was poorly designed though. I wonder if the manufacturer even tried to put them on a tire. I had to use an angle grinder, pliers, files, vice grips, and an oxyacetylene heating torch to bend and modify them. I like the cross design of the chains rather than a simple ladder. In theory with this criss -cross design there would always be some chain on the ground so it would’t go bump bump bump as you drove on a hard surface however they didn’t plan it out right with the way they connect at the end so both ends angle the same way causing one bump per rotation which is almost worse I’d say. Overall I am happy with them and I’m glad I bought them but I’m not impressed with the manufacturer. I paid about $75 for these. The rear chains I have are from John Deere. They are way more heavy duty, the tightening lever is way better, and didn’t need any modification and they were about $120 a couple years ago. The John Deere ones are thicker and will probably last a lot longer but they don’t make front chains. They tell you nobody puts front chains on a rear wheel drive tractor but I did and I’m glad I did. On my other tractor that is 4 wheel drive I put chains only on the front and I’m very happy with that as well. The rear tires are much larger so chains would be much more expensive for them. The front chains really give the most bang for your buck in that case helping with steering and propulsion.

Not worth the time and money.
These chains will fit a Troy built 2410. I wouldn’t advise using them on snow accumulations under 3 inches because the chains along with the weight of this unit will dig into the concrete. The only time I use mine is at the end of the driveway where it meets the street as the snow plows tile to snow INXS over 10 inches. Also, this product does very little in the reverse gears. The other thing to keep in mind is to be careful with making turns in the higher speeds because the chains will dig quite nicely but unfortunately you will get " little spinner marks" on your concrete. Installing and removing them will also be a chore. I use a milk crate to prop under the unit between the wheels so they’re elevated to install the chains and or remove them. In the past five years I’ve only use the chains about three times. And with little use, you have to be sure that once you’re done and you’re storing them by hanging them up for example, be sure that they’re very dry and sprayed with some kind of oil because they will rust over time generally because of lack of use.

Chains work well but installation is difficult because swivel hooks are not the proper length (too long) and chain could be one link longer.

Not sure about diagonal pattern
[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] These are 4 link chains, meaning you get a diagonal cross chain every 4 links. Some chains give you a right angle chain every second link. These might work though because they have less chance to slip in between the tire knobs.
