For what it's worth, for the past 7 years I have traveled over Donner Pass 5 days a week in every imaginable driving scenario. My Office is at 7198 Feet. I have never seen R3 Restrictions. The road will be closed before that. The only time R3 will be put in place is if you are caught inside a closure and get snowed in. However, like I said, I've seen it all and never had to put chains on my 4WD vehicles.
Get a set of cables and keep them in the car for piece of mind. You will probably never use them, but it's better to have them and not need them, than to need them but not have them.
