Tires chains and a dually

I tried searching here and google and couldn't get a good answer. I have a 2wd dually. If I use single wheel chains on the outer dually tire will the chains rub between the outer and inner dually tires? I can get single tire chains for about $40, but dually chains are about $200. The tires are size 225/75R16 M+S tires.

it may touch the inside. However how would that be any harder than riding on outer wheel??

Are you suggesting taking off the inside wheel and running the chains or just saying it would be the same thing?

I've seen commercial trucks (smaller ones) run single wheel (meaning outside wheel only) chains on dually rears.
I think if they touched it would be ok as long as its not jammed in there and really tight.

both ideas suck... LOL

running single chain on a dually is pretty much a guarantee that you will chew up the inner sidewalls as the tires balloon out from bumps and whatnot. just depends on how tight the wheels are together

Running a single tire on a dually hub is not the end of the world, but you do put alot of strain on the spindle bearings. again, not the end of the world, but i wouldnt be putting any weight in the bed of the truck

If the chain is sized right and installed properly it won't rub. I would want to do a dry run in daylight and establish where to hook the inners.

You're not going to hurt anything running a single chain! I've never seen a problem from that.
Yank that outside dual off and run a single tire back there if you want. It will get around a bit better...lots do that here.
