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

Although I haven't had to use them in snow or ice yet, it appears to be of good quality and it is very easy to install. I wish that it had cam tighteners though. was great to deal with, shipped it for free, and delivered it in two business days instead of 5-7. They also kept me updated on the order/shipping process by email.115780

  • You would want to have snow tire chains on all the powered drive wheels of your 2006 Lexus RX330, but you also want to follow the guidelines of the vehicle manufacturer.
