Tire chains are more difficult to install since they are heavier, but they are durable and can last several years, so they are usually preferred over cables. Conversely, tire cables are less bulky and quicker to set up, and if one of the cables breaks, they’re less likely to cause any damage.

Is it better to have chains on all 4 tires?

How fast can I drive with snow cables?

Excessive acceleration and hard braking will put too much pressure on snow chains and may cause them to snap.

Although in most conditions a single set of chains will provide enough traction, there are significant benefits with using two sets.
