I remember riding with my Dad and one of his chains broke at about 35mph. It really messed up the wheel well and the side of the truck before he could stop; imagine a chain flail hitting the car 100 times. This was the 70's, quality may not have been as high, and also the chains got a lot of use, 40-50 miles at a time, sometimes 80-90, going over the pass from Eugene to Bend.
Moral of the story: get GOOD chains, check OFTEN that they are tight and secure and not falling apart, stop every 10-15 miles and inspect.
When I signed papers on my new transit wagon, there was form we had to sign stating that we would not use tire chains. Anyone else?
