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 Square-Link Snow Tire Chains Review - 2007 Ford Fusion

Today on our 2007 Ford Fusion, we'll be test fitting the Glacier square link snow tire chains, part number PWPLC1138, with tire size P205/60/16. We'll begin our test fit by laying the chains out on the ground, and making sure we get any kinks or knots out of the chains themselves. This will make it easier for installation. We'll now take the chains and drape them over the tire, making sure that the cross chains are centered with the tire tread. Now in order to identity whether the chain is going on correctly or not, we'll make sure that the cross chains attach to the side chain with the hooks facing out. This will protect the tire, as well as ensure that the chain is going on correctly.

We'll now let our chains drape around the tire, where we'll need to move to the inside here at the 6 o'clock position. We'll connect the two ends of the side chain together, making sure to get as much of the slack out of the chains as possible. We can then move to the outside of the chains here at the 6 o'clock position, and again take up as much of the slack within the side chains as possible, and connect the two together. We'll pull the lever over, and using the excess side link here, we'll hook the tension device around. We can then use our rubber chain tensioning device, part number PW100.

We'll work in a pentagonal shape, hooking it to the side chain. This will help further ensure that the chain stays on the tire, and making it safer to drive. And that completes our test fit of the Glacier square link snow tire chains, part number PWPLC1138, on our 2007 Ford Fusion.

Shipping and Parts The Tire Chains I ordered were perfect and came just in time for the snow and subsequent ice and freezing rain. They fit perfectly but I expected nothing more. However, the reason I was able to use them was because E-Trailer upgraded the shipping to 3 days from the ordered 5. I received them and am now using them. Thanks5690

Chains arrived quickly. I thought they would be a little heftier, but I believe they are going to be a good addition to my tires when I'm driving in the mountains. Thanks for a good product and timely shipping!109961

Expert Answers about Glacier Square-Link Snow Tire Chains - 1 Pair - PWPLC1138                                         Do you have a question about this Tire Chains?

  • How Fast Can I go with Snow Chains on my Vehicle, Should the Chains be Removed for Dry Pavement
  • You will want to stay within the speed range the manufacturer of your chains recommends, typically 25-30 miles per hour is the limit. To prevent damage to the chains and your tires you should remove the chains once you get on dry pavement. I attached an FAQ article below on snow chains that you might find informative.

  • What Is The Difference Between The Glacier Snow Chains # PWPLC1138 And The # PWPL1138
  • The Glacier Square-Link Snow Tire Chains, part # PWPLC1138, is a square-link design snow chain and the Glacier Twist-Link Snow Tire Chains, part # PWPL1138, is a twist-link design snow chain. The C is just designating the different part number. See the picture to the right that will show the two different styles of links on the snow chains. The square-link design snow chain is rated for better traction, because more of the link is in contact with the pavement. It will also have better durabil

  • Effect of M+S Tire Rating on Snow Chain Sizing
  • The Glacier Square-Link Tire Chain you referenced, part # PWPLC1138 would be correct for your Mud + Snow (M+S) rated 225/60/17 tires on your 2006 Sienna. An M+S rated tire is not any larger in diameter than a standard tire, the difference lies in the extra cuts or sipes incorporated into the tread design itself. I would also recommend the rubber adjusters, part # PW100. The adjusters will provide constant tension to the chains. Before ordering, be sure to read and abide by any procedure
