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

185/60-15

  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 etrailer.com 115864

BOUGHT CHAINS FOR WINTER TRAVEL: THEY DID A GREAT JOB IN KEEPING SNOW AWAY FROM MID-MISSOURI LAST WINTER. I "SHOVELED" ONLY 4 INCHES ALL YEAR. LATE OCTOBER TRIP TO ESTES PARK; THEY KEPT THE BAD WEATHER AWAY ALSO. THEY HAVE NEVER SEEN SNOW. I ONLY WISH THEY WOULD ALLOW FOR COOLER WEATHER IN MISSOURI IN AUGUST AND NOW IN SEPT & NOVE. I WILL HAVE TO SEE IF THEY CONTINUE TO "WORK" AT KEEPING THE SNOW AT BAY FOR THE WINTER OF 2016-17. YOUR PRODUCTS ARE GREAT AND THE CUSTOMER SERVICE IS EVEN BETTER! ! 313569

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 Cable in Tire Chains


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


Comments

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.

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 Cable in Tire Chains


These chains actually fit the front wheels of my Subaru Outback. (225/65-17) Unlike the "EZ" chains I'd previously bought from online-retailer "A," these chains have inner and outer cables with a sufficient length (circumference) to sit at the widest part of the tire as opposed to the other chains I'd ordered from brand "A" that, at the cross-link points, fell inside the 17" wheel diameter, and therefore interfered with the suspension components of the front wheels. I'll admit that the split chains that DIDN'T work for me were much easier to install, and they appeared to be of a little sturdier constructions, than the PW1042 chains that I now have, but I couldn't get circumference information for the other company's chains, or confirmation that they'd fit my car, not just my tires. The pw1042 chains have equal-length inside and outside cables, and they are adjustable, so I can make sure that the inside cable is snug enough, but well clear of the car's suspension. The other company's "EZ" chains offered no such adjustment. I'll probably be using the second notch on the inside of the tires, and then the third or fourth notch on the outside of the tires. The rubber adjusters that I also bought will take up any (not much) slack that there is. 296415

Review from a similar Glacier Cable 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 Cable 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 etrailer.com web site was very easy to navigate to find the correct products. Email communication from etrailer.com 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 etrailer.com 4634

Review from a similar Glacier Cable 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

I have not used the chains yet and hope I never need them! I ordered them "just in case." But they look to be of high quality. And they appear to be exactly as described. I would highly recommend this merchant. They provided good communication, the product was well packed and it arrived much earlier than promised! 168020

Quite frankly, Ive never taken them out of the box. I live in California and weve had such a drought... But this year is looking different, I may have to try them out this weekend!

Review from a similar Glacier Cable 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 Cable 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

First time i deal with a vendor that is so efficient. Called their helpline to get info on the right size of rubber adjustors i needed for the PW2029C snow chain tires. Mark M. answered my question and gladly asked me if he could finish my order that i had started online. I think when you call a place like this and they offer such great service, you will still order their product even if they charge taxes and delivery for out of state orders. Thank you Mark M. for great service and my order arrived as promised, ready for the snow this weekend. JP 235075

Review from a similar Glacier Cable in Tire Chains


I went to my local tire person in Turlock and they said the only thing that would work on my Buick Enclave was a traction device that required my lug nuts to be removed to put it on. I just needed some type of chain/cable in case Inter-State 5 had snow on for a planned trip in a couple of weeks. I searched the internet and this company showed up. I read some of the reviews and decided to give them a call. The person I talked to knew about tire traction devices and told me a small cable will work on my car and still be legal in the State of California. I gave them my credit card and my cables showed up on the date promised. I will use them again should I need cables/chains in the future. 233223

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 Cable 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 Cable 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 Cable 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 etrailer.com 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 Cable in Tire Chains


The front end hitch for my 2013 ford 150 arrived very quickly and fit perfectly without any drilling. I did have to eliminate the lower forward wind diverter and only needed a small notch out of the upper plastic shield. It took me about two hours with the help of my 4 year old grandson. Probably would have taken me about an hour and a half without the help. It looks and works great except even though maneuvering the trailer is very easy , the visibility behind the boat I'm pushing is non existent. I need forward view mirrors instead of rear view mirrors. I recommend this hitch and etrailer. 284755

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

Interesting use of physics. Easily installed, well presented in advertisement. Delightful sales person. They look very substantial and follow exactly what I was looking for. I saw a set last winter and now they are mine. I bought a set for the front so I will have all drive. I live in mid forest, forest service road access. A good point to point out is the fotos on the instructions are very poor difficult to see detail. I scanned them and enlarged to no avail. However, I was saved by the web pages which had great fotoss and made comprehension a beautiful thing. thanks j 235765

Review from a similar Glacier Cable in Tire Chains


I just received my chains, I took them into the garage and installed them on my truck without much trouble. They lay over the tire and have a very low profile. The directions that come with the chains have all the info you need but the pictures showing the procedures are not very clear, but it all made sense having just watched the installation video on the etrailer website. I am going to wait and post a picture of these chains in actual use while I am in the snow in Colorado. Thank you etrailer for helping me with my choice and the quick delivery. Shayne 233440

Review from a similar Glacier Cable in Tire Chains


Always excellent customer service with etrailer.co My first set of cable chains arrived quickly and fit perfectly. Be sure to order the rubber adjusters. They are very convenient, worth every penny. This is my second set of cable chains, the first for a front wheel drive Venture, the 2nd for an AWD Safari. Even though it's AWD, the cable chains on the rear really improve traction. Be sure to always follow the manufacturer's "speed limits" when using this product to prevent catastrophic failure! Read all info supplied and enjoy your enhanced mobility! 28082

Review from a similar Glacier Cable in Tire Chains


I was amazed at the speediness of the shipping and delivery! I am so excited about using the chains. It has been a snowy and icy season this year and I will be more confident knowing I have these for my vehicle. I work at a hospital, which as you know, does not close when conditions are bad. Now that I have these I have more confidence in my ability to get to work in extreme wintry weather. Also these were about half the price that the A???Z??? Retailer priced a set at last week. Thanks for having reasonable prices that won't break the bank. 176751

I have not used them as yet, but put them on the car. It was nice weather when I put them on, but can see they will not be much of a problem when, and if I need to use them, when it is cold, and snow is on the ground. As always the delivery was prompt. The bag they are in is a little underwhelming, as it tore when taking them out, and then when I put them back it tore even more. It still will work, but does not look to good. I'll fix it ,it will be fine. Keep up the good work. Thank you. Don---------------------------------- 156772

  • Cable Tire Chains for a 2013 Ford C-Max Energi
  • If the owners manual says not use tire chains then I cannot recommend going against that. However, it is a Catch-22 because in some areas of the country, chains are required by law. 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....

If you wanted adjusters you would need Glacier Rubber Adjusters for Class S Snow Chains - 1 Pair, part # PW100. They would make fitting and tightening the chains much easier and quicker.

I will provide some recommendations for each size for you. First for the 245/70-17 if you plan on infrequent use then going with a set of cables, # PW3010C, with rubber adjusters # PW99 would be the way to go.

  • Does Driving With Glacier Chain # PW1034 on a 1993 Chevy S-10 Pick Up Create a Very Bumpy Ride
  • 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...

  • Cable Style Tire Chains for a 2015 Subaru Impreza with 205/55-16 Tires
  • I assume it is talking about cables such as # PW1034. But they are laboring under the assumption that all tire chains have to fit around the back side of the tires. While some chains do not have parts that fit around the back side of the tire none of those fit your tire size. Cables are still going to have parts that fit around the back side of the tire. The cables listed above will fit the 205/55-65 tires on your 2015 Subaru Impreza but I also recommend tensioners # PW105 to keep them tight.
