asked by: BOB M
The first thing you are going to want to do is consult the vehicle owners manual to determine if chains can be used and if they can, if there are any restrictions or recommendations. On other Honda vehicles, only certain size cables can be used. So checking the owners manual will be the first step.
If you can use cables then the ones that fit a 225/65-17 tire are # PW1042 that you have referenced. I also recommend the rubber adjuster # PW99 to make fitting and tensioning the chains easier.
Since your tires are designed as mud and snow tires, you will want to check with the tire manufacturer to determine if they can be used with chains or cables. Snow tires are generally constructed so they have more surface area that contacts the road. The difference in composition between snow and regular tires may prohibit the use of cables or chains.
I have included a link to some tire chain FAQ articles for you to view.
