tire chain sizing

I have a pair of chains that came off 23x8.50 12 tires. My new tire size is 23x10.50 12. Can I add links or will I need new chains? Also will chains fit same size ag tires or should I order a larger size for ags. These are the tractor rear tires.

Let the air out of your tires and put the chains on the ag tires they should fit but they just won't go down the sidewalls quite as far. Try it. I've switched them before.

Thanks Joe,

I have both ags and turfs on rims that are 23x10.50 12. My chains came off my old tractor that had 23x8.50 12. I'll let the air out and try to fit.

Did the chains fit?

I tried to stretch them over the ag tire and couldn't get enough length. I think the turf tires are just slightly smaller even though they are the same size. The chains came off tires that are 2 inches narrower so I might have to spring for the larger size. I'm going to fit them to turfs anyway because the ags are new and I'd rather not chew them up.
