Ladder chains on tires with good ag tread are almost useless. And yes, in the first post they are inside out. You want the cut ends of the cross links facing out to avoid damaging the tire.
Something that may help is to join to sets of cross chains with lighter chain to make what some makers call Duo Grip, as shown in this link- http://tirechains.com/TractorChainmenu.htm They still won't work as good as double ring chains in ice, snow and mud.
I come from the great frozen north where we measure snow in feet, not inches and winter lasts 6 months. Trust me, you're wasting your time with ladder chains on ag tread. Either get some better cross chain type or get some bald tractor tires.
