You could get an extra set of rims and tires and keep the chains mounted on them in the bed of your truck.Might be easier just to change a wheel then mount chains on the tire.
Many years ago I had a 78' Ford 4x4 truck.Got 4 sets of chains along with a tire chain pliers and a public sale.Finally we got a 24" snowstorm.I mounted the chains the day before in the garage.Driving on the snow was like driving on bare roads.You could stop and go just fine HOWEVER when you were on uncovered snowless road it was like ICE.On occasion a crosslink would break and slap the crap out of the fender.That is where the chain pliers were helpful to replace/remove the broken crosslink.
Anyone remember the big "Ice Cleats" chains?
