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

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

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.com4634

I was amazed I got an email response on my order the same day, not to mention a few hours after I placed the order. Etrailer even upgraded my order to 3 - 5 day for a faster delivery. I also got a fallow up to make sure I received my product. WOW! Great Service! Special thanks to Patrick Breedlove for the fallow up, Joe H. for the expedite shipping, and George J. for a quick respond to my order. Keep up the good work. I look forward to doing business with Etrailer. 62302

As soon as I received that package, I tried it out with my truck and it fits perfectly. The best part is that it super easy to install. I bought the tire chain with the rubber adjuster but it turns out that it can be installed without it but ofcourse for safety purposes it is better to have one. EASY, FAST AND WORTH EVERY PENNY!26976

I haven't used the cable snow tire chains yet but they look like they will fit my needs perfectly on my Ford Escape. I have never had any better on line service before. Shipping was very fast and the etrailer follow up was excellent and kept me informed through the whole process. I would definitely buy from them again.26906

I purchased these chains for emergency use on my SUV when I visit my vacation home in the mountains of Tennessee. I feel highly confident these chains will provide me with the safety and security for my family. The pricing and shipping costs were 75% less than another merchant I was considering. Plus, storage bags were included! I would recommend this company to everyone. The prices are excellent! Stuart Parish Cincinnati, Oh.26826

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

If your product "snowchain" increase max speed to 40 mph it would be better because most of highway minimum speed is 40 mph.62162


Comments

As a whole, speed minimums do not apply when weather is so poor that tire chains are required. If the roads are so bad that chains are needed, then speeds will need to be reduced below the speed minimums.

  • Snow Tire Chain Recommendation for a 2008 Ford Escape And Utah Snow Chain Requirements
  • The only information we have for the state of Utah is that Snow Chains may be used on a vehicle when required for safety because of snow, ice or other conditions tending to cause a vehicle to skid. Drivers are advised to carry one set for the drive axle from Nov. 1 to Mar 31. If there are further snow chain requirements you will need to check with the Utah Department of Motor Vehicles.

For the 235/45R17 tire size the Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains, part # PW1038, is the part number you would need for the cable style chains like the part number you have referenced.

  • Yes, the Glacier cable snow tire chains, # PW1042, are designed for 235/75-15 tires with a 15 inch rim. I would recommend adding a set of Glacier rubber adjusters, # PW100, to help keep constant tension on the cables and provide a tight, secure fit.

  • Tire Chain Recommendations for a 2012 Honda CR-V with 225/65R17 Tires
  • The first thing you are going to want to do is consult the vehicle owners manual to determine if chains can be used and if they can, if there are any restrictions or recommendations. On other Honda vehicles, only certain size cables can be used. So checking the owners manual will be the first step. If you can use cables then the ones that fit a 225/65-17 tire are # PW1042 that you have referenced. I also recommend the rubber adjuster # PW99 to make fitting and tensioning the chains easier.

  • Can 235/65R17 Tires Replace 225/65R17 Tires on a 2011 Honda CR-V
  • The size difference between the two tires is minimal, however you will have to check to make sure that the larger 235/65R17 tires will fit your 2011 Honda CRV. The 235 tires are a tad bit larger, in both width and diameter, so you will want to check within the wheel wells for any areas where they could rub. The width of the stock 225 is 8.86 inches vs. the 235 at 9.25 inches. The diameter of the stock 225 is 28.52 inches vs. the 235 at 29.03 inches. The 225 tire fits on a wheel between

If you want cables for 265/70-16 light truck tires you would use # PW2028C with rubber adjusters # PW99. The rubber adjusters help keep the cables under the proper tension and in place on the tires.

You may want to review your owners manual for any restrictions related to tire size. The manual I found does not indicate that the alternate 235/65R16 tire size is compatible with this vehicle.

These cable chains are perfect for emergency use, but are not the most durable of choices.

I suggest that you first review your owners manual for any guidance or restrictions regarding use of tire chains. For your tire size, LT225/75/16, we offer a range of chains, including the cost-effective cable chains from Glacier
