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)

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 use the product on a limited basis (really snowy conditions) but they provide great traction. I have 4wd with my JGC so accelerating and driving aren't the problem, it's the stopping. Even at slow speeds, driving down windy hills on the commute is problematic for any SUV. These chains definitely provide the traction you need in back road driving. Plus you do not have to shell out $600 on snow tires. 6655

Ask the Experts about this Glacier Tire Chains
Do you have a question about this Tire Chain?


  • Are Snow Chains Required for Both Wheels On a Dual Rear Wheel Moving Van
  • You can use one tire chain on each side of your dual rear wheel van, however, I would recommend using chains on all 4 rear wheels, especially if you will be driving in areas with extreme weather. Using chains on all 4 wheels will provide more traction on snow and ice over using chains on 2 wheels, but using chains on only 2 wheels is acceptable. The Glacier Chains Cable Chains, # PW1046, that you referenced are designed to fit the 225/75 R16 tire, however, these chains were designed...

These chains will self-center and self-tension after installing them so there is no need to get out repeatedly and make adjustments.

  • Tire Chain Recommendation For 2015 Subaru Outback

If you are unable to find that information in the manual, the dealership should be able to answer that question for you. The concern when considering tire chains is due to the clearance needed. Traditional chains might not be recommended for your vehicle. Minimum clearances must be maintained around spring clips, fenders, braces, splash pans, fuel...

You will just need to select the one that you have to see the available chains. For a 255/50R19, the most economical chains are # TH01571255. For a 255/55R18, the most economical chain (for occasional use) is # PW1046, and I would recommend tensioner # PW99. For a 275/40R20, the most economical chains are # TH01571255.

You will want to put the chains on the primary drive wheels of the vehicle. For example, if you have a front wheel drive vehicle you would put them on the front wheels. For rear wheel drive vehicles, you would put them on the rear wheels. From the research I did, your MDX is all wheel drive. All wheel drive vehicles usually engage all 4 wheels...

If you plan on taking a trip to an area with heavy snow or ice, it would be a good idea to bring a set of tire chains along for emergency situations. Using tire chains is not necessarily required, but they will help in hazardous conditions and there are even some areas that require the use of snow chains during certain times of the year.

  • Tire Chain Recommendation for a 1999 Chevy Silverado With Chrome Rims
  • Snow chains and even cables have metal parts that could potentially scratch your chrome wheels. It is more likely that scratches will occur during the installation process because when moving the chains are, ideally, in the correct position away from the rims and centrifugal force and tension will keep them in place. Probably the safest bet in terms of keeping your chrome rims pristine is to use something like the Glacier V-Bar Snow Tire Chains with Cam Tighteners, # PWH2829SC. With...

If you meant LT225 vs P225 (/75-16 for both) then you can use use the appropriate size chains for both types of tire but some are better suited for one style or the other. For a P225 you would want to go with chains # PW1042 because they are better suited for passenger vehicle tires as opposed to light truck (LT) tires....

  • Yes, there is a slight difference between passenger car tires and light truck tires when it comes to using tire chains.

There are no chains that fit both sizes so you would need to get separate chains, such as cable style chains, like you want for both vehicles. For the 225/75-16 tires you can use # TC1042 with rubber adjusters # TCOA1. And for the 265/70-17 tires use # TC2028 with rubber adjusters # TCMA2.

The basic rule is that snow tire chains should always go on the drive wheels. So with a FWD vehicle place the snow tire chains # PW1046 you referenced on the front tires. On an AWD you will install the snow tire chains on the front wheels but getting 2 sets for all the wheels will add steering and braking benefits....

  • Tire Chain Recommendation for 2014 GMC Yukon with Tire Size P285/45R22
  • In order to pick out the correct size chains for a vehicle the most important factor to consider is the tire size.

For the tire size of P285/45R22 that you have I like the # TC2327 as they are priced great, are easy to install, and will give you great traction.

  • You will need the Glacier Tire Cable Chains, part # PW1038, to fit either the 215/70R16 tire size or the 225/60R17 tire size on your 2009 Nissan Rogue.

  • Snow Chains Recommendation for a 2011 Lexus RX350
  • Your Lexus RX350 should have 235/60R18 size tires on it. The tire chains we offer that give the absolute best fender well clearance confirmed to fit this tire size would be the Thule K Summit Tire Chains # TH02230K66. Most chains wrap around the inside of the tire to secure, whereas these do not at all so they work the best for vehicles with limited tire clearances. Check out the review and install videos I attached for more info. You will need to check your vehicle's owners manual...

  • How Many Sets of Snow Chains are Required on a 2006 Kia Sorento
  • It is recommended to at least have chains on the drive wheels of a vehicle. So in your case you would want them at least on the front wheels. It would not hurt to have them on all four, it should help with handling and braking, but you should also be fine just to have them on the front. You will still want to check with the owners manual to make sure that there are not any restrictions on snow chains on all four wheels or just on the front wheels. I attached an FAQ article on snow chains...

  • Cable Style Tire Chains for a 2014 Honda Odyssey with P235/65R17 Tires
  • We do not carry that brand of tire chain but I looked them up and that size will not fit the 235/65-17 tires on your 2014 Honda Odyssey. It would take SZ429 instead. We have similar chains that will fit, # PW1946V. This are cable style chains that include the rubber adjusters. I have also included a link to the right to all of the chains we carry for your tire size. Be sure to consult the vehicle owners manual for specific information on the use of tire chains. I have included a link...

  • Subaru 2015 Outback AWD Snow Chain Recommendation
  • Using chains on all four tires will give the best traction for braking, turning, and acceleration. So if possible I would recommend going that route. But in most cases you can get away with just one set of chains or cables. To determine which axles your 2015 Subaru Outback should have chains installed on you will need to consult your owners manual. The cable set part # PW1046 that you referenced has been confirmed to fit your tire size so they would work great for an emergency set of...

  • Speed and Distance Ratings for Tire Chains on 2012 Honda Odyssey
  • Any tire chain on any vehicle will require reduced driving speeds; no tire chain can be used at full highway speeds. Typically tire chains will be rated for speeds of 30 - 40 mph maximum and the faster you drive with snow chains the more likely they are to suffer damage. It is best to keep speeds in the 25 - 30 mph range when using snow chains. If road conditions are bad enough to require chains, then they are also bad enough to justify slowing down! The usable distance a set of chains...
