Class S Designation

SAE Class S tire chains are designed for use on vehicles with restricted wheel-well clearance. Certain newer cars, vans and small trucks, especially those with large, aftermarket tires, may require Class S chains.

SAE Class S Clearance Diagram

These chains will fit your tires provided there is both:

  • A - a minimum of 1.46" (37 mm) between the top of the tire tread and the wheel well
  • B - at least 0.59" (15 mm) between the tire's sidewall and the vehicle

How to Choose Snow Chains for Your Vehicle

To choose the right snow chain, you must match your tire size. Those measurements can be found on the side of your tire.

Tire size on sidewall


  1. (185) - indicates tire width in millimeters
  2. (60) - gives you the aspect ratio (sidewall height as percentage of width)
  3. (15) - denotes the diameter of the wheel rim in inches

Video Transcript for Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains Review

Today, we're going to be taking a look at the Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains, Part Number PW20286. These cable chains are designed to fit tires from 15 all the way up to 20 inches and offer a 35 mile an hour maximum speed. These chains are great for occasional use. They've got a sturdy steel wire construction around the outside, as well as on the cross cables. They've got hardened springs that cover the cross cable. It's going to provide that traction we need.

They'll move freely back and forth and really get embedded there, so we can get good grip on that ice and snow. They've designed it with a nice, low, profile design to help keep and maintain a smooth ride. Also, these are going to work great on both front wheel drive and rear wheel drive vehicles. The ladder design on these chains is going to meet all Department of Transportation requirements in all states. We're here on the passenger side of the vehicle. We spread our chain out here, just to make sure we don't have any kinks or any tangles that we need to work out before we get started. We're working with a tire size of 275-55R20, but again, many different sizes available with these Glacier chains, so you'll have a wide variety of sizes that these are going to fit. The first thing you want to look for is the is yellow, triangle shape tag.

This is going to say right hand side, or left hand side, and give you the indication of which way the tires should be rotating. That arrow will be facing towards the front of the car. We'll now move that arrow and that yellow tag down, around to the front side of our tire there. We'll want the first rung of our ladder to be tucked nicely right underneath the front side of our wheel, there. Give it as much slack as it needs. Get it tucked in there, just like that.

When we roll forward, we'll be able to gather that up right along the rear here. Maybe up here in the top somewhere, so we can get it connected. We'll now pull back and get as much slack as we can out of the front side of our chains, here. Then we can bring our rear up. On the back side here on the rear, we'll bring the cable right through that, and we'll have to rotate up right into that catch point. We'll then bring our rest of our slack out here to the front side. Just like on the rear side there, we've got another catch here.

We'll want to choose one of the mounting locations here. We've got 7 to pick from. On the rear, we use the second. That means those here on the front, we need to use the first, the second, or the third. Once we have that in place and in that set location, we'll use the large lever. Take up some of that slack. See if you can't get that last one. There we go. We'll pull that down. That's going to give us all the tension we'll need. The leverage is designed to come down and hook on to the cable. Depending on where you'll be positioning your cable, your tag end may be a little bit longer. They've got two nice catches designed right in here. You can simply clip it into there and hold it. Keep it from flopping around on you. WE've got our rubber adjuster, here. This is Part Number PW99. It's got 5 hooks on it. We're just going to find 5 locations around our cable chain, here. We're going to hook these in all the way around, 5 different locations facing out away from our sidewall. We don't want to run any risks of getting them up there and having any damage occur. You just want to put some tension on there to stiffen that up a little bit. We're going to drive forward a few car lengths. We'll double check it just to be sure we don't have any extra slack in there that we need to get out or any issues to deal with. With our chain secure, that's going to complete today's look at the Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains, Part Number PW2028C. .

I tried them on; and they fit well. I'll be ready for my subdivision's icy conditions next time. Thanks for the rapid service, and here are some photos from the test today; though you may not want to use the tension photo, because the clips should have been rotated to the next section 110017

The service from etrailer was spectacular! They upgraded my shipping request for a faster delivery, with no additional charge. The package arrived within three business days. That is about five days earlier than I originally expected. I have just unpacked my cable snow tire chains and the optional rubber adjusters (which I strongly recommend) and everything looks great. As a rural mail carrier I hope I don't need to use the snow chains very soon, because snow and ice create a real problem on the back roads. I couldn't complete my route without cable snow chains. Thank you 115864

I put these on an '08 Miata. Totally disappointed. Don't waste your money, these are terrible for traction. If you're on ice or pavement, they are down right dangerous. I actually had to take them off to get traction. Chains work much better if you have enough clearance in the wheel well. 168031

The chains arrived a few days after I placed my order. They fit my 2012 Mazda 3 perfectly. I live on a steep hill and last winter my car had trouble climbing the hill when it was covered with ice and snow. Hopefully these will help me get home! 162636

Review from a similar Glacier Glacier in Tire Chains

Can't really say how they work, love the storage bags they come in, purchased them just in dealings with etrailer have been nothing but perfect, there online dealings top notch! 110378


I purchashed these cable chains because I heard that the car I have doesnt like snow at all. Well I soon found that out when we had only a 12 inch of snow and all I was doing is spinning all over the road. I had the chains but thought it was just a half inch of snow every car can drive in it, Not me, all over the road. Well I learned my lesson, now we are having 3 1/2 inches of snow and Im worried are these cable chains going to work? Much to my suprise the chains are on and I have to drive about 12 miles now. The roads were so bad that cars were all over the sides of the roads and in ditches. This was Friday1/9/15 bad morning for all of us in ct. I will have to say these things were like having 4 wheel drive but better because now i can also stop good. There is no way I could have gotten out of the drive way with out them. I drove the 12 miles and at times going 35 to 40 mph no problem at all. Later the same day the weather cleared up and I took off the chains and noticed there was no wear on them, not at all. I had chains years ago and you have to keep watch on the wear so they dont break. These looked brand new and after the snow dried off of them I rolled them up and they are set for the next storm. Best product purchased that was under $50.00 and worked better than ever expected. Thank you.

comment by: Barry G - 01/12/2015



Well I have to say I have had to use these chains 4 times now and I am so pleased with them and how well they work. Now with this last storm with 14 inches of snow I was able to get through the snow and Ice when even the 4 wheel drives were having a hard time. I can not get over how my car can get through the snow when it is higher than the center of the wheel and still being able to make it through with no problems. With out the chains the car would get stuck in 2 inhes of snow but now with the cable chains its not a problem. I have driven both 4 wheel drives and rear wheel drive limited slip trucks and these cable chains put those to shame. The traction you get with them is unreal and everyone is asking how are you getting around with only those cable chains so well. All I say is you have got to get a set and wait for the snow and be amazed your self. And they dont cost much at all for what they do. They are the best, dont wait to get stuck, buy them now!!!!!!!!

Review from a similar Glacier Glacier in Tire Chains

these are nice heavy chains. however, i felt the workmanship was a bit under-par. the welds, especially on the twist links which form the cross-members were rough and when you add the galvinizing to that, they are difficult to lay out flat prior to installation. the rough welds hang-up and you have have to do some "creative twisting" to get all the links into proper position. this problem was only in a few places. but, i can foresee some frustration if i have to find those kinks in the snow and with numb fingers. i discovered the problem when i laid the chains out on my garage floor as i was inspecting the chains the day i received them. this is May and so i can't say how they will perform this coming winter. i expect they will do well, but chains, by nature, are a tangled mess when you first pull them out. it should not have to be an extra struggle do to rough surfaces. 129943


Hi Patrick-The chains were a gift for my son who hunts near the Canadian border. He was unable to make the trip last season so i have no am writing to say, thumbs-up to etrailer for providing follow-up reviews. So many times when reading reviews i wonder, did the product stand the test of time?Many thanks to you and the folks who take the time to write their updates!I wi sh ever y site would follow your example.

Review from a similar Glacier Glacier in Tire Chains

Although I haven't used them in ice or snow yet, the snow chains appear to be of great quality and are very easy to install. The cam tighteners work nicely and hold the chain on the tire with no slack. was great to work with. Ordering was easy. They kept me updated via email during the shipping process. They upgraded my free shipping and I received my order in 2 business days instead of 7 as projected originally. I can tell that they care about their customers. 115781


I got them after the big snowice storm we had here last year. I only had the opportunity to use them one time since getting them and really just went out then to try them out in some slush. I like them and enjoy the fact that they are in the truck at all times. It doesnt snow/ice much here, but Im ready if it does. Its bad to be like this, but I hope it snows this year just so I can use my chains? Ha!I have told others about your company and encouraged them to get chains from you.

Review from a similar Glacier Glacier in Tire Chains

I have purchased these cable chains for the 2nd time and I am so happy that they came in just in time. The 1st set I bought was used so much this season that I did use them on dry pavement and then on snow and ice. We were going through so many storms every 2 days and some days I didn't take them off like it was advised to. I knew the 1st set were getting warn down quickly so I ordered another set. Well 1 by 1 the chain links started to snap, I am so happy that when they snaped I heard a sound and pulled over and just cut off the remaining part of the snaped one. Then I looked over where the chain snaped there was "no" damage to my car at all. Years ago I had chains and when the chain snaped it riped apart the side of my truck. These are made so if a chain link snapes there is no damage. These cable chains are the best ever, when you have a newer car or truck. Very with these cable chains and will buy another set when needed again. Very happy, Barry. 177402

Review from a similar Glacier Glacier in Tire Chains

Excellent Customer Sevice I live in Florida and our family is taking a ski trip to the mountains of North Carolina. Last year, we drove to Greensboro in our van but rented a 4WD vehicle to drive to the mountains. This year we want to avoid that hassle so snow chains were a must-have precaution. The web site was very easy to navigate to find the correct products. Email communication from was continuous and prompt throughout the entire order, shipping, delivery process. The chains shipped quickly and I received them very fast. As the instructions suggest, I have "dry-fit" the chains in my driveway before actually needing them. They fit perfectly and are very easy to install. As a matter of fact, I'm not sure I even needed the rubber adjusters because I can only stretch the adjuster to attach to the chains at two points (the adjusters have five hooks). I have not used the chains to drive in the snow yet and I’m hoping I won't need to use them during our trip. But if I do need them, I am prepared and ready to go thanks to 4634

Review from a similar Glacier Glacier in Tire Chains

I bought this product for my Ram truck to retrieve fire wood at the top of my snow covered mountain land. The snow was 6 inches deep, very dense, and mixed with layers of ice. The ascent was about 150 feet over a distance of 300 yards. All 4 tires were fitted with this product. I was not able to accomplish my goal. The truck could not get the proper traction to navigate the hill. Without tramping hard on the gas, the tires just spun and dug holes to the stone lane surface. I can't fairly rate this product on it's performance because there may not be any tire chain that would have worked under these treacherous conditions. However, after taking the cables off, I was unable to roll them up to get them back into the bags they were in. For that reason I give them a poor rating. I would love to see a video of someone trying to do this. My solution was to make a wooden spool for each pair on which I rolled them up for storage. The bags are too small, especially for one person. The manufacturer failed to provide an easy means for storage. 122536

Review from a similar Glacier Glacier in Tire Chains

I wanted rear-wheel chains for my 2011 Tacoma that would provide excellent traction. I already have V-bars on all four wheels of my ATV and it is impossible to get that thing stuck when I plow snow; so, I bought these. I have low-profile chains for the front wheels (to prevent from hitting the upper control arm) and with these rear-wheel V-bars, I really get the traction that I need. I drove around in a snow-covered field on the side of a hill and they work great! The cam tighteners are really convenient; but, I use rubber adjusters as a precaution. No stopping me now! 66160


I have had these chains for one year now and they are still doing the job! I am able to install the chains, adjust the cam tighteners and put on the rubber chain tighteners without moving the vehicle. This is important if you happen to be stuck. It was a good investment.

Review from a similar Glacier Glacier in Tire Chains

I purchased these for my husband and will have to do my review in 2 parts. My husband has not had time to open the box the chains arrived in. I will address the service provided by today. I ordered the chains rather late in the evening and to my delight, I received notification that they had shipped my order that night. Inadvertently my unit number was left off of the order (my error) and again, late at night, I emailed etrailer and the next morning I awoke to a message that the problem was taken care of and I should get the order in a day or two. They were delivered that day. I ordered them 1/7/15 on 1/13/15 they were delivered. It took "longer" because of my error. I think I received superior customer service and still think that the time it took for the delivery (free) was excellent. Once my husband actually opens the box I will add to the review about the product. Customer service like this needs to be applauded immediately. 168935

Review from a similar Glacier Glacier in Tire Chains

Ordered 3 things late on Sunday. Got a call early on Monday, not an email, a call. From a very nice young(my assumption) lady to inform me that one of the items I ordered was discontiued and they just ran out of their stock - before my order of course. But, this was no big deal, they had two other solutions. I opted to just take my other two items. Paid a mere $7.50 for 3-5 day shipping, well, yeah, its Tuesday, and I got it early this afternoon. Thats a total of less than 44 hours, with a repackage due to the order change and I had the exact items I bought in my hand. Only thing I'd suggest - make the website more iPad friendly. Some of the picture/text boxes were stacked on top of one another. Other than a website that could use a little cleaning up, the company experience was fantastic. I am a first time orderer,er,er and will do it again once I can get permission from the boss(wife). 109043

Review from a similar Glacier Glacier in Tire Chains

Used my new chains for the first time this morning and they were great! Was trying to go thru frozen corn snow which is extremely difficult. Put them on the front tires so I could be sure to stay on the road plus the extra weight of the engine gives you better traction. Each time the tires started spinning from the resistance I just backed off on the accelerator and the chains just kept eating through the snow and I made it up the hill which I really didn't expect to do! I bought some "cable" chains for my last pickup and they just didn't do the job. These heavy links give you much better traction. Had some issues with the tighteners staying locked but next time I'll just hook the Glacier Multi Arm Adjuster (which worked great also!) thru the end of the tightener and this should fix that issue! 177919

Review from a similar Glacier Glacier in Tire Chains

Chains arrived very quickly, faster than predicted and anticipated. Great communication from eTrailer, and lots of info on website The chains do fit onto the front tires of my 2007 Honda Pilot EX, but I had to make an alteration to keep the interior hook from hitting the strut tube, which is very close to the tire. I flattened the "F" shape hook down to a much flatter profile, which seems to work, although it is still very close to the tube upon rotation. I think these are a good product, but you might consider looking into the 'V' profile version as another option, if the clearances of the interior latch might be better. Overall, fantastic company, great customer service, would highly recommend them. I will post pictures or updates as I use the chains more often. 108757

Trailer Hitch and Wiring Harness This product is absolutely the best in performance and appearance! It is exactly as described and what I needed! It was an ease to install. The manufacture thought of everything. The girth and strength of this item is perfect! It is not a piece of "tin foil." It looks like it belongs or as a factory feature! Also, the wire harness is exact. Just what was needed. All that was necessary was to unplug a factory cover cap and plug in the harness, a three minute installation. Thank you! It is a pleasure to do business with a company that is precise in description and provides actual products and service. I highly recommend you to anyone needing your products, advice and/or services. Your shipping is also punctual an appreciated. 4111

Review from a similar Glacier Glacier in Tire Chains

Received chains sooner than expected, Thank You for the great service! After being in the trucking business for 40+ yrs., I just needed a good pair of lightweight chains for my pickup, to get me over the pass. They fit well, but I have not used them yet, so I can't respond to their performance. Pewag chains for large trucks are the best in the industry. They were made in Austria and outlasted the cheaper twist link chain by miles. They also didn't end up in your tire when they do wear out like a twist link, because they lay flat on the ground and not curved just waiting to puncture your tire. Never saw a square link stuck in a tire. Sorry to see these chains are "Made In China", but I hope the quality is still there, as time will tell. 107324

Review from a similar Glacier Glacier in Tire Chains

Look like tire chains, install like tire chains, so, they must be tire chains. The cross chain and side chain is a bit lighter and smaller than my last set, back in the 1970's. However, the metal is obviously of much higher quality. I expect to get at least the same mileage from this set before they wear out. I put them on a 16 inch Dodge Dakota tire. My only suggestion is to get the 16-20 inch version of the adjusters for this size of chains. I thought that size might be too loose, but it was very difficult to stretch the 12-16 inch size across the wheel, let alone make multiple (5)attachments. Don't have a picture to add, but these look exactly like the pictures in this catalog. Overall very pleased with the new chains. 172029

Review from a similar Glacier Glacier in Tire Chains

Chains fit well, are heavy duty, and the included tightener tool worked great. Cam Tighteners are a must. Makes the job of putting the chains on easier. I bought the dual wheel version chains for the back end as well. We tend to get ice under snow on a gravel lane. These chains should keep me moving. I would recommend these to others. 111516

Review from a similar Glacier Glacier in Tire Chains

The learning curve for applying the tire chain was short, and in the end, the process took about 5 minutes. (It helped to drive the tire on to a brick first.) The galvanized links appear sturdy, as do the cams, and the chains seem tight enough. Intended use is road travel in snow/ice - more on that later, perhaps. 106072

Review from a similar Glacier Glacier in Tire Chains

Cable Snow Tire chain PW1038 Was Supprised to receive my order so soon. Excellent Service,. I tested putting the cable tire chain. I followed the instructions on installation and as expected I had to move the inside and outside liks several time to get the right tension. It was not a problem because I have done it many times before ( about 10 years ago). The true test is when I have to install it in the snow and drive with it on. I was concerned that this was not the right size because the tire size didn't show up on the carring bag tag. I double check on the web and verified PW1038 was the right size for my tire P215/50R17 90W. I think this is the right size. MelO 100377

Review from a similar Glacier Glacier in Tire Chains

Nothing like a great Elk hunt in the Colorado Rockies. The Glacier Mud Service Snow tire chains I recently purchased moade it possible for my group to reach our favorite hunting spot, but more importantly, it got us out and back civilization despite the 2 feet of wet heavy snow we had to trek throu to get off the mountin. Product performed extremely well and 2 of my friends I hunted with were so impressed they each placed an order for their own set. Thank you E-Trailer As for the service and ease of ordering receiving the product from E-Trailer, I must admit I had the best experience ever buying and receiving a product from an on line purchase. Outstanding service 26487

Review from a similar Glacier Glacier in Tire Chains

Product arrived right on time and in perfect condition. The cables are easy to install if you've used cables or chains before, but I hope you don't have to rely on the pictures in the installations instructions because they are just blurry enough to be of no help at all. The cables fit my 275/65/R18 Michelin LTX A/T2 tires pretty well, but if you have tires any bigger than that you will need to purchase a larger size snow cable or chain. A handy cloth carrying case is included, but it's a little tough getting the cables back inside when you're finished using them, so be sure to keep the twist ties that come with the cables to make storage a little bit easier. 133946

Review from a similar Glacier Glacier in Tire Chains

Excellent, I love the customer service that this company takes pride in. That's the key to a returning customer in my opinion. If we take the time to trade with your company, then you should take the time to see if we are satisfied. This company should be the mirrior for all companys, you are setting the example and they should follow. The only thing that was delayed was the shipping due to the weather, I paid for 2nd day shipping but recieved the product right at a week. I contacted UPS about this and they were not friendly at all, to bad they don't use your customer service which establish good rapport with their customers. Respectfully, J. Armes 176642

Review from a similar Glacier Glacier in Tire Chains

I bought these tires for a Christmas trip and drove a long 18 hours to visit family. I was very pleased with the service from staff at Etrailer as they understood my concern to have it shipped to me in time to make my trip. I tested the chains out for my lexus rx350 and the chains fit perfectly. I did not end up going through any snowing days so I did not have to use them thankfully, but I will keep them for any future trips and I am glad they fit my tires because my greatest concern was the fit as there were so many options online and trailer was one of the few that allowed me to find the right chains by choosing the type of car i have. 112302

Review from a similar Glacier Glacier in Tire Chains

These chains appear to be what I need, I will be traveling from the deep south to the Tetons in February and just might have a need for chains on a very seldom basis. These chains appear to be much easier to put on and take off, and the price is very good. I do want to commend customer service (Bridget A). I called to try to correct an error I made on my online order and she was excellent in correcting my problem - - thank you Bridget. 65041


I still have the chains in the bag, but they have never been on my tires. I was really glad to not have to use them, but have them ready for the next trip to the snow for just in case.

Review from a similar Glacier Glacier in Tire Chains

I'm pretty impressed with the quality of these chains and like the cam type tightening system. They are easier to put on than anticipated and the installation video was pretty helpful. I installed these with snow on the ground and it was not bad. Bought these to improve traction when plowing with an old 2 wheel drive truck and it made the big difference I was hoping for. They work! Can't speak to how hey hold up over time, although I won't be putting a lot of miles on them. They seem to be built well enough to give me long life for my use. Price was the best I found and they came very quickly. 173187

etrailer, Finding the correct size was of cables was very easy utilizing your website. I received my order within a few days of placement even though I had them delivered by ground. I found the directions to be clear and installation simple. The cables easily fit back into the soft storage case. I purchased the cables as an insurance policy and hope I will never be able to write a review on how effective they are in ice and snow. I have already recommended etrailer to my friends who are also planning to travel into the land of ice and snow this winter. Thank you, William D. 6487

I would speak with Ford to see how they handle that discrepancy. If they allow you to use chains then you could use either # PW1034 (and rubber adjuster # PW99) or # PW1938V that you have referenced if the tire size is 225|50-17. If you have a different tire size, let me know and I can make other recommendations....

  • The Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chain # PW1034 that you referenced will not be as bumpy as other chains because they are not as large as linked tire chains. These have an outside diameter of just under 1/3 inch. When tire chains are installed it is not recommended to drive over 30 mph, so between the speed and the snow on the ground, you should not have that bumpy of a ride. I do recommend using the Glacier Rubber Adjuster # PW100 with the tire chains. These adjustors keep the chains...
