What do you guys carry to comply with WA State Patrol when they require AWD vehicles to carry chains? I see that Peerless has the Super Z6 and only require 6.3mm of clearance. Also, WA State Patrol recognizes the AutoSock type as an alternate traction device. Do any you ever used these? So far I haven't had any issues with the Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06 and they are approved tire since they are a M+S tire. I can get Blizzzaks but WASP still requires to carry chains. Thanks for the help.

Greetings Rome831,

Insofar as chains go. The law says you need to carry chains. It does not say they have to fit the car. It only becomes an issue if you get stuck; stop traffic; and they have to call a tow truck to remove you from blocking the road. Then yes, the WSP will inquire about your chains. But really you have an Evo one of the best AWD drive cars created. Combine your Evo with Real Winter Tires such as the Hankook Ice bear, Bridgestone Blizzak, or pirelli sottozero 3 (my personal favorite) and you can go just about anywhere in the snow. (remember even AWD and Winter Tires can't beat getting high centered, LOL)

Enjoy!

MAX

if Iím reading the info about this law correctly, it only requires you to have chain above a certain elevation for 4x4 and AWD vehicles.
