These are real heavy duty adjusters. Unless you have 12 to maybe 14 inch wheels, go with the 16-20 inch size. I installed them on a 16 inch Dodge Dakota wheel and the rubber is very difficult to stretch across the wheel, let alone make the other three attachments. 172030


Comments
I really like the chains, they are so much easier and lighter than thechains of my younger years. However, I still feel the same about theadjusters. They are much too small andor not flexible enough, making itvery difficult to stretch them, even just across the wheel. My wife wouldnever be able put them on should the need arise. I suggest you find adifferent supplier for that product or a different brand.

Fortunately I didn't have to use it. I purchased it just in case it became necessary to put the chains on when we went through the Rockies. Looks well made, and glad to have purchased them. Just noticed below though, that your instructions pdf links are both dead. Would have been nice to stick a copy of both of them in the bag for future use. 372125

I ordered three sets of chains. One for my van, one for my small truck and one for my big truck. The chains with the cams are very nice and easier to deal with. Don't buy the rubber rings with hooks that is used to keep the chain centered, it is cheap and will not last the winter. Buy the short rubber straps at any hardware, they work perfectly. These are adequate chains for moderate use. 293906

These worked very well for the chains that I bought last year. I drive a 1998 4Runner Limited with 16" rims. It took a little bit of practice centering the chains on the tire so definitely do so before you get a bunch of snow. If it seems like this tensioner is too tight, doublecheck that the chains are positioned on the tire correctly and not too far in toward the wheel well. 324903

If your chains do not come with built in tensioners, this product is an absolute must have. Mine were easy to attach and held perfectly through a lot of miles in heavy snow. If they are cleaned with soapy water after the season is over, they should last for several years. An excellent product! 121331

Received 2 sets of 12" rubber chain spreaders and they were of the highest quality I've ever seen. I was more than satisfied with the product. I live in Pittsburgh, PA, called your location in St. Louis late Friday afternoon, and the product was delivered the following Tuesday. The person I spoke to in St. Louis was a pleasure to deal with and had an excellent knowledge of the product that I ordered. I would highly recommend your company and would deal with you people again without hesitation. Thank you. 172442

These are an absolute necessity for tire chain applications whether you use traditional chain-link, or cable chains for your vehicle. Excellent quality rubber with great steel hook construction makes these a terrific addition to your winter weather gear for your automobile. 752716

All items arrived in good condition and all were as described and were as expected. The items, three sets of tire chains and three sets of chain tighteners were inspected, but as of this date none of the items have been installed or placed in service. The products all appear to be of good quality and should perform as expected when used. At this time, I rate the order response time as excellent and all items were shipped quickly and arrived in good condition and if they do not prove to perform well I will quickly respond with a follow-up review to indicate any deficiencies. Will look forward to doing additional business with etrailer.com. 464751

  • Fitment of Tire Chain Adjuster for a 2012 Subaru Impreza
    I can help you find the right tire chain adjuster for your 17 inch wheels. I would recommend the # PW105 for your Subaru's 17 inch wheels. Not only will these adjusters fit your wheel better than the # PW100 they have a separate rubber multi-arms which will continue to perform even if one arm is compromised, unlike the other style. This adjuster will fit rims from 15 to 18 inches in diameter, which will be perfect for your Impreza's # PW1038 tire chains. I've included an image of...

For wheel rims 16 to 18 inches you can use the Pewag Glacier Rubber Adjusters for Light-Truck Snow Chains - 1 Pair, # PW99.

  • Correct Tire Chain Adjuster for Use on Glacier Tire Chains for 2012 Subaru Impreza, Part # PW1038
    Your first step is to check your owners manual for any guidance concerning use of tire chains on this vehicle. The specified tire chain adjuster for the Glacier Tire Chain, part # PW1038, when used on 17-inch wheels is in fact the # PW99, although the video shows installation of the smaller size, part # PW100. In typical use on 17-inch wheels it will be easier to install the larger size since they will offer more slack. Part # PW99 will help to keep the Glacier S-Class Tire Chains...

    The Titan Chain Cable Snow Tire Chains - Ladder Pattern - Steel Rollers - 1 Pair # TC2028 are a confirmed fit for your 265/70R17 tires on your 2017 GMC 2500 HD 4x4. Then you will use tensioners like the Glacier Multi-Arm Rubber Adjusters - Light-Truck Chains - 15" to 18" Rims - 1 Pair # PW105 or # PW100 which will work well with these cable chains. Most of the time the manufacturer suggests only using on the rear tires, but your owner's manual will outline proper use. These cables...

    The best tire chains for your 1988 Ford F-150 with 235/75R15 size tires are the Titan Chain Alloy Snow Tire Chains # TC2519. These chains feature square links that are configured in the "diamond" pattern for great traction on snow and excellent grip for ice.

  • Tire Chains for a 2013 Mini Cooper with 195/55-16 Tires
    The old tire chain paradox: owners manual says no chains but in some places the law requires chains. It is related to Reno's Law which states that if chains are required by law then of course the vehicle owners manual says not to use chains. It happens a lot and I know exactly the type of chains you need. The good news is that all of the cables and chains for a 2013 Mini Cooper with 195/55-16 tires are Class S compatible which means they require very little clearance. I have linked...

The chains come in pairs therefore you will need three pairs in order to cover all six wheels on your motorhome. In order to install these chains on the rear of your motorhome you can install one pair on both outside tires or you can install a pair of each side.

    There are several tire chain options for a 195/60-15 tire size. The first thing you are going to want to do is consult the vehicle owners manual to determine if there are any special requirements for using chains on your 2010 Toyota Prius. Next you want to consider how much you are going to be using chains. For infrequent use or just to have some in the vehicle where legally required I recommend a set of cable type chains such as # PW1030 with rubber adjusters # PW100. I have included...

    The Thule Self-Tensioning, Low-Profile Snow Tire Chains, # TH2004205104, will give you enough clearance because they will adjust tension and not just have slack in the chain. If you are concerned about the seeming contradicting information, you could go with a cable chain like Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains, # PW1042. With these style chains, spring rollers are wrapped around sturdy wire cross cables. With this product, Rubber Adjusters like # PW100 are recommended. In the Owner's...

But you will need to check your vehicle owners manual because if there is a speed limit for chains that is lower than that, go by the lower limit. Cables # PW1030 will fit your 2013 Toyota Prius with tire size 195/65-15. I also recommend adding the rubber adjusters # PW100.
