Default Need cable chain advice for winter driving

Hi all, I didn't see a previous thread about this. Here in Oklahoma we generally don't have much occasion to use cable chains, but in the last few years we've had some pretty nasty snow and ice storms that would warrant thier use. For those of you who use them, is there a particular brand or style that would be easier to install or better in any other ways or should I just buy whatever the one of the local chain auto parts stores has on the shelf? They'll go on an 08 Accord.

Hi

First off I do not like chains! They are a potential disaster waiting to happen, come lose and take out your fender! The limitation of speed, the inconvenience.
I would rather spend the money on good snow tires and be safe all the time and at any speed.

Than said, cable chains with good tensioners are what you need, make sure you get them for your tire size, size matters here.
