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 - 2012 Jeep Liberty

Today ion our 2012 Jeep Liberty well be test fitting the Glacier cable snow tire chains, part number PW1046 on 235/60/18 tires. This vehicle is primarily rear wheel drive so we will be putting the tire chains on the rear wheels. To begin our test fit well lay the tire chains out flat on the ground to undo any kinks or tangles. Well then drape the tire chain over the tire with the hooks of the tire chain facing outward so we dont damage the tire. Then on the inside of the tire well go ahead and connect the male and female ends of the tire chain and then securing the access cable with the clip. Once this is done well then move to the outside of the tire and then secure it with a male and female under the chain.

Then use the clip to secure any access cable. Youre then going to need to drive a little bit to make sure that the tire chains are centered on the tire and to see if you can make the tire chain a little bit tighter. Once we know that the tire chain is centered on the tire and we have reduced any slack possible we will then be adding the rubber tensioner, part number PW100, as Glacier highly recommends this tensioner to keep the tire chain secured to the tire. You can then see with the rubber tensioner that the majority of the access slack has been secured. That concludes todays test fit of the Glacier cable snow tire chains, part number PW1046, on our 2012 Jeep Liberty..

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

Review from a similar Glacier Cable Snow 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 Cable Snow Tire Chains


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 Cable Snow 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

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.

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.

Always excellent customer service with etrailer.co My first set of cable chains arrived quickly and fit perfectly. Be sure to order the rubber adjusters. They are very convenient, worth every penny. This is my second set of cable chains, the first for a front wheel drive Venture, the 2nd for an AWD Safari. Even though it's AWD, the cable chains on the rear really improve traction. Be sure to always follow the manufacturer's "speed limits" when using this product to prevent catastrophic failure! Read all info supplied and enjoy your enhanced mobility! 28082

Review from a similar Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains


I have not used them as yet, but put them on the car. It was nice weather when I put them on, but can see they will not be much of a problem when, and if I need to use them, when it is cold, and snow is on the ground. As always the delivery was prompt. The bag they are in is a little underwhelming, as it tore when taking them out, and then when I put them back it tore even more. It still will work, but does not look to good. I'll fix it ,it will be fine. Keep up the good work. Thank you. Don---------------------------------- 156772

At this point all i can say is they fit. i've tried them on but haven't used them yet. it took about one week to get them from the time i ordered them. if you've never used chains before, don't be fooled by how easy it appears to be to put them on from watching the videos. they do it in summer weather and put the car up. in reality, you'll be laying in the snow trying to get to the inside of the tire and make the connection, not an easy or fun task when it is cold and miserable outside. 165562

I visited Yosemite National Park in early November and was cautioned that I should have tire chains in my vehicle because of Caltrans and National Park requirements. The etrailer folks got me an inexpensive set that met the requirements and could work as intended in an emergency situation. Wayne was particularly patient and helpful. My order was quickly received and came with a nice storage bag, too. Their service is great and the web site is also very helpful about installing and using chains. 163535

The snow cables appear to be of excellent quality and a well thought out design. The fit is good and they are easy to install. I have however yet to use them under snow conditions, but they are ready! The service was outstanding. The product size recommended for my tire size (a very low profile tire) was not correct but with the help of customer service representative, Lexus G., she was able to determine what was needed and I now have the correct size and am all set for my next ski trip. 116835

No question that these cables get the job done. Saved Christmas, went 30 miles in AWD Pacifica with all 4 wheels in cables. Handles snow pack perfectly. Also returned home to 12" powder on steep driveway(15 degree with hairpin turns) and unloaded all passengers in the garage!! Nothing less than amazing, assuming the driver has experience with snow conditions. I now have similar cables for both other vehicles. Don't forget the rubber tensioners, keeps everything secure and quiet. 6352

  • According to our fit guide there are 3 possible tire sizes that can be on a 2011 BMW X5. I have included a link to the 3 sizes. 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. Make sure to check your vehicle...

  • Tire Chain Recommendation for a 2009 Acura MDX with 255/55-18 Tires
  • For the 255/55-18 tires on your 2009 Acura MDX, the easiest to install chains that will offer the best fit would be the Self-Tensioning Snow Tire Chains, # TH04115255. These chains will self-center and self-tension after installing them so there is no need to get out repeatedly and make adjustments. They also come with anti-scratch nylon bumpers to protect your vehicle rims. If you are looking for something more basic and for occasional use, you can use Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains,...

  • 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...

  • Tire Chain Recommendations for a 2010 Acura MDX
  • On your 2010 Acura MDX you can use 1 pair of chains, like the Glacier Tire Chains, # PW1046, that you have referenced, for use in snow and ice. 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...

  • Class S Snow Chain Recommendation for a 2001 F-150 With LT 255/70-16 Tires
  • For your 2001 Ford F-150, with 255/70-16 LT tires, we have several sets of Snow tire chains available, see link. Among these Snow chains three have less than 15mm clearance that is required for Class S rated chains. I would select the Thule - XG12 Pro Self-Tensioning Snow Tire Chains, item # TH2004705255, for the best performing Class S rated snow chains for your truck. The Glacier V-Trac Cable Snow Tire Chains, item # PW2119V, would be my next choice and finally the Glacier Cable...

  • Will Tire Chains or Cables for Light Truck Tires Fit the Same Size Passenger Car Tires
  • Yes, there is a slight difference between passenger car tires and light truck tires when it comes to using tire chains. Tire chain manufacturers will usually list chains/cables for regular tires and different chains/tires for light truck tires so even tires the same size may not be able to fit each others chains/cables. For LT tires, be sure to use chains or cables for light truck tires in size 245/75-16 to ensure compatibility. Cables # PW1046 are for passenger cars, not for light...

  • 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...

  • Cable Style Snow Tire Chains for P225/75-16 Tires
  • A tire size of 225/27-16 like you indicated in your question then that would mean it has an overall diameter of 20.78 inches compared to the 29.29 diameter of a 225/75-16. 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....

Some Volvo all-wheel drive cars may limit snow chains to the front wheels only. The Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains, part # PW1046, that you have referenced, will fit the 235/65-17 tire size.

  • Snow Chains Recommendation for 285/35/18 Tires on a 2007 Mercedes-Benz CLS 550
  • I looked at the online manual for the 2007 Mercedes-Benz CLS 550 and found that tire chains are only to be used on the rear wheels. The online manual does not state which class of snow chains are acceptable. The chains that you selected are recommended for your front tires but Mercedes does not recommend tire chains for the front of the CLS 550.

  • Tire Chain Recommendation for a 2004 RX 330 AWD and a 2012 Acura TL SH-AWD
  • Snow tire chains are designed to give you additional traction in heavy snow and ice conditions, even vehicles that have AWD and 4WD. 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. I recommend checking...

  • Before buying snow tire chains or cables you will want to check your owners manual or with the Chevrolet dealer if you can install snow tire chains or cables on your 2003 Chevrolet TrailBlazer 4WD, or if there are any limitations. The cable snow tire chains you will need for the 245/65R17 tire size is the Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains, part # PW1046.

  • 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.

  • Snow Tire Chain Recommendation for 2012 Toyota Sienna SE with 235/50-19 Tires
  • We do have several chains options for the 235/50-19 tire size but the Glacier 1046 chains will not fit. Instead you would need PW2016C. However, you will want to consult the vehicle owners manual and/or a local dealership about the use of chains. There can be restrictions on the use of chains on some vehicles, depending on tire size, so consulting the owners manual is a must. I have included a link to a video showing a typical installation for you. If you determine that you can use these...

  • Tire Chain Recommendation For 2015 Subaru Outback
  • In the owner's manual for your 2015 Subaru Outback, it should state whether the acceptable tire chains are limited to Class S Compatible. 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...

  • Will One Set of Tire Chains Fit Both LT225/75R16 And LT265/70R17 Tires
  • I compared all of the chains for tire sizes 225/75-16 and 265/70-17. 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. Be sure to consult the vehicle owners manuals for specific information on the use of tire chains. I have also included a link...

  • 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...

Be sure to consult your truck owners manual for any additional information on the use of tire chains. I have included some links on tire chains that should also be helpful.
