Years ago I bought some chains for my truck (2005 Tacoma 4x4) just in case I'd ever need them. I have tires sized 265/65-17 and I have confirmed that these chains are intended to fit that size tire.
I might be heading to the snow next week so I decided to do a dry run install today just to make sure I remembered how to put them on and that everything was in working order. But once I got them on I noticed that they were dangerously close to parts of my suspension on the inside of the tire. I've attached a picture to show what I'm talking about.
I admittedly don't know much about installing tire chains and if the set I have came with instructions they are long gone now. Did I do something wrong when i installed the tire chains that made them so close to the suspension or are these chains just not going to work for my truck? If I did do something wrong can anyone provide any suggestions as to what I should do differently?
