Please Note: To determine whether you can use snow chains on your vehicle, consult your owner's manual.

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

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.

Rating product as "good" because I havent had an occasion to use them. I don't see anywhere to rate the service, but I found it to be excellent! The staff assisted me in the selection of the chains and delivered them as promised. The day after receiving them, I was back on the road to California via Colorado. Plenty of snow on the ground but didn't need the chains. Thanks everyone! 154408

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. Thanks 5690

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 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. Etrailer.com 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


Comments

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 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 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


Comments

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 etrailer.com 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

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


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 feedback.im 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


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

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

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

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

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

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.

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

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

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

Cable Chains Thank you once more. The cable chains look like they are worth the wait. I thank you for immediately informing me that they were out of stock and your offering of another type. I haven't an opportunity to use them just yet, but the installation looks easy and I expect them to be successful when needed. I got these to assist in the upper mountain conditions, when four wheel drive needs additional help! I may even get another set for the front of my vehicle if I feel they are needed! Again, it is a pleasure dealing with superior people and real business that cares! 4186

Review from a similar Glacier Glacier in Tire Chains


This is actually the second set of Glacier chains W/cams that I have owned. I bought a new Ford F-150 with bigger tires thus the reason for the purchase. I have used these chains for two years on ice and snow on a road that is a mile and a half straight up over Dan's Mountain in Western Maryland. They are simply the best you can buy. When you have to put them on under adverse conditions you can leave them a little loose and tighten the cams until you can get into a better situation to make a final adjustment. They are simply the best you can get and are what we need out here . 29064

I Too will be rolling up Cottonwood But Ive got some roads that are not priority for the snow plows- which always seem to call in sick Seeing that your comment from last year, If they worked well on Ice? Im Near Riverton,and the Hard Freeze from Utah lake, and the Jordan river, and The G.SL. I always have Ice in my area- If you used and are pleased thus far- will you suggest what you use ?

  • 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.

  • How Effective Would Adding Snow Tire Chains be on a 2010 Volkswagen GTI
  • Before buying snow tire chains you will want to check your owners manual or with the Volkswagen dealer, to see if you can install snow tire chains on your 2010 Volkswagen GTI, or if there are any limitations. A 4wd vehicle is nice to have in the snow, but the tires make a difference and how somebody drives with the 4wd can make a difference. The 2010 Volkswagen GTI is a front wheel drive vehicle which is designed for performance and handling so it will use the larger 17 inch and 18...

The specified tire chain adjuster for the Glacier Tire Chain, part # PW1038, when used on 17-inch wheels is in fact the # PW99, although the video shows installation of the smaller size, part # PW100.

  • 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...
