Tire Chains

I bought a new Deluxe 28 and need a tire chains recommendation.

Some reviews complain that the cross chains fall into the deep tread and don't work well.

A link to a specific set of chains would help.

Tire size is 4.80-4.00

You certain you really need them? Reason I ask, I found I never needed chains on my (one-year-old) Plat 24 Ariens (did need them on my previous Troy-Blit and Yard Machines blowers).
Tires work great in the snow and on a slight grade. (Think they called them Snow Hogs or something like that).

2014 Ariens 24" Platinum
2010 Yard Machines 600 Series, 24" w/179cc MTD engine
Toro CCR 3650 GTS
Troy Bilt 521OR w/Tecu HSSK50 engine

I bought #5565 MAX TRAC TIRE CHAINS 400 X 480 X 8 Deep Lug from Amazon for substantially cheaper than the Ariens chains and they work beautifully. The key is to buy them for deep lug tires, not regular chains for smoother treads. Mine made a huge difference and fit perfectly. To get a tight fit it takes some time (deflate your tires first). I got mine tight enough that I don't think I'll need tensioners.
