Tire Chains

Anyone know where to find them in GTA? I know thule makes some but they are like 500$...

Also I am aware they are illegal...this is not a concern..where I will be using them is not a plowed or heavy traffic area. I need a slightly bigger set since the car I am putting them on has 18 inch rims with 265 rears.

I know it sounds ridiculous but just some advice on where to find locally would be nice..

thanks guys.
