I wouldn't go chains either. However, tire cables used in conjunction with snow tires should provide excellent traction. I know some of our Canadian friends have used just premium snow tires mounted on steel wheels to great success without even needing chains or cables. I remember, back in the day, my dad would replace the rear tires on our old AMC Rambler with knobby dedicated snow tires right after Thanksgiving. Everyone on our block in New Jersey would do this. Nobody does this anymore....
