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


  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 V-Trac Cable Snow Tire Chains Review - 2011 Toyota Corolla

Today on our 2011 Toyota Corolla, we'll be test fitting the Glacier V-Trac cable snow tire chains, part number PW1930V. We'll be test fitting these tire chains on tire size 195/65/15. And this vehicle is front wheel drive, so we will be installing the tire chains on the front set of tires. Now today, for demonstration purposes, our vehicle is on a lift to show you the connection points of the tire chains a little bit better. Now before we begin our test fit, we will first need to lay the chains flat out on the ground to undo any kinks or tangles. This will ensure that the tire chain will fit correctly around the tire.

We'll now drape the tire chains over the tire, making sure that the hooks are facing out, so we don't damage the outer wall of the tire. We'll then move to the inside of the tire, where we'll connect the male and female end of the tire chain. We'll then move tot he outside of the tire, where we will insert the cable through the link and secure the excess cable with the red hook. We'll then use the included cable tensioner, which we'll use in a hexagonal shape, to further secure the tire chain to the tire. Now you may want to drive a little bit and then get out and check the tire chains to make sure they are still centered onto the tire, and to adjust any slack if necessary.

And that completes today's test fit for the Glacier V-Trac cable snow tire chains, part number PW1930V, on our 2011 Toyota Corolla.

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

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

Everything arrived on time and as it should. I was gald I tried them on first just to get the hang of installation. The first one took me about 10 minutes but the second one only 5 minutes. I have not used them in snow or ice conditions yet but they look well made and ready to go. 8864

The quality of these are very good. The instructions coupled with the video on make them very easy to install. You will want to be careful driving with these installed and keep your speed low. 29768

  • Trouble Connecting the Inside Cable on Snow Cable Chains on a 2009 VW Jetta with 205/55-16 Tires
  • The Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains, # PW1930V, that you referenced are the correct size for the 205/55-16 tires on your 2009 VW Jetta. There is a possibility that the tire brand on your Jetta is constructed differently than standard 205/55-16 tires and you would need to order a different size chain. The first thing to do is make sure you are installing the cables in the correct order. You should connect the inside cable, with only one stop, behind the tire first and then the outside...
