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

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

  • Differences Between Thule CG-9 and CS-10 Tire Chains and Can Tire Chains Damage Tires
  • The Thule CS-10 tire chain has an external quick release system, they are self tensioning (just put them on and go), they have 10 millimeters clearance inside and on the tread, they feature a diamond pattern with icebreaker reinforcements for added grip, they have anti-scratch nylon bumpers to protect vehicle rims, and they have a color-coded assembly design. The CG-9 chains are also self tensioning, but do require one stop to fit the chain properly. They have 9 millimeters of clearance...

The Glacier V-Trac Cable Snow Tire Chains, part # PW1938V, will not work on the 205/70R15 tire size.

  • 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....

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. Cables are great if you seldom need chains and/or live in an area where chains are not required by law. For frequent use and/or...

  • The Glacier Tire Chains for the 2000 Honda Accord, part # PW1034, are correct for your 2000 Honda Accord, and they do not require adjusters, but they are recommended. 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. You should check the owners manual of your vehicle to make sure that your vehicle is capable of using tire chains. I have also included...

  • 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...

This is an expensive option, but if you need a set of chains that will install easily, will provide great traction and offer you the best clearance possible since they do not go on the inside of the tire sidewall these are it.

  • First thing you need to do is check the owners manual for your 2008 Scion tC to determine if cables/chains are okay to use on your vehicle. For some vehicles there just isn't enough inner tire clearance to use cables/chains. For your vehicle the only tire size info we have is 215/45-17 which calls for the # PW1034 Glacier cables. You may be trying to use a set of cables that are just too big and that is why there is the fit issue. For an option that does not put any portion of the...

Instead for you I would recommend the # TC1540 for a similarly priced set that will fit and install easier, will last longer, and will provide better traction. If you need chains for all 4 wheels then you could easily just order two sets of these chains.
