I have an old set of IRC blizzards Also , They work great! They also work very well on wet roots!
I also Have a Set of Lizzard Skins Tire chains ! they were given to me , and I tried to get them on once and all I did was magage to break one of the links trying to get them on, and said to hell with it.
On the Home made, A friend of mine useed drywall screws , and a Mr. tuffy tire liner , said it worked great.
