If you read the fine print, I will bet you find that only applies to commercial vehicles...I drove all over Oregon in the winter, and never once was stopped for, let alone asked, if I had tire chains. Besides the portion you quote: "on any single drive axle vehicle" means a 2wd, not a 4wd. I was also all over the Rocky's with nothing more than either a set of Revo II ATs or a set studded Cooper M&S, I never found a single place I wasn't comfortable going.
OP, I would look at a true set of winter tires, with the severe weather rating symbol (the snowflake and mountain)...if you're out on winter roads, the highway patrol WILL look for that if you are stopped...they asked me about this little symbol, but not about tire chains. The Cooper Discoverer M&S is a true studdable snow tire that works very good (I had a set of these in the 265 flavor)...they can be had in Load Range E. When studded, they are a formidable tire on winter roads. If you are looking for something to run year round, I would take a set of Bridgestone Revo IIs over a set of BFG A/Ts (based on my experience for both).
Here is a link for the (wrong size) Cooper M&S: http://www.bigotires.com/Tire-Detail...ERER-M&S/13123
