Chains or Cables?

I am a new owner and just moved from Southern California to Idaho. I have a 2013 Wrangler Sahara. The tires I have are 255/70R 18 OWL On/Off Road Tires.

I assume these tires are not meant for driving in the snow without some type of chain or cable. What are some recommendations for what I should put on during the winter?

Cables suck. Chains are the way to go. What tires do you have?
