Tire Chains: Anybody selling them in the US?

This is the place for dealers and other commercial entities to peddle their Ural/Dnepr related wares. One caveat only, all listings must include a price or the MSRP.

Didn't realize how different the shafts are between the newer and older Urals. When I was running one of those outrageous Russian Knobbies the first year I owned my 2007 I had to trim the rubber on the inside edge of the tire. Guess they wouldn't work at all on the newer Urals? Got tired of changing the tire in the cold. Do they even sell those anymore?

Going into my 10th Winter my suggestion is run a Heid K37 on all wheels or at least on your Pusher. You will not need tire chains for the snow unless you are riding beyond your or the bikes limitations. For the 1st and only time I ever ran on an ice lake I simply used big tie-wraps. Cheap, simple and easy to install.
They don't look as cool as the chains if that I suspect is part of the appeal.

See the diffrent

Yep, I do.
Wonder if it is an improvement since there never was/were any problems with the older design? Or perhaps part of something bigger like the FD?

Are we looking at a difference in the dish of the 2 wheels shown, or difference between steel and alloy rims?

When I built my alloy wheel set I checked the dish to ensure adiquate clearance .
