Tire Chains Vs Tire Cables / Wire
I would assume that the chains would be "luggier" (No such word) and rougher to ride on, but providing a better bite in mud and snow maybe than cable?...
But what about cable style? Does it bite in better to ice considering it doesn't have big lugs? (More surface contact with cable?)
I guess the good thing about chains is you can replace a links...
It likely wouldn't hurt to have an extra chain for a wheel in case you break a chain and you are way up on an icey mountain.
