Ok so I purchased these along with my V-Bar chains. It states it will fit 16"-20" wheels. When I tried to install them on my chains, they were to small. My 2013 Tacoma TRD 4x4 has 16" wheels with BFG 275/70R16 all-terrain tires. They are really good quality, but just to small. I guess its my fault, I should have done my homework prior to purchasing these. Looks like I am gonna have to head to Wally World for some bungie straps. 91824

Ordered chains from Mesa, AZ by phone, on Friday. Requested delivery to address in Moab, UT by the next Friday. They arrived early on Wednesday. Chairs were intended for compliance with Colorado State chain laws. They were not required or used on I-70 on trip to Denver despite snow & ice storm and heavy traffic while crossing the mountains. Traffic was moving way too fast, and travel distances too great, to make speed limiting chains practical. Back in St. Louis now, but not sure I will ever need them here. I guess I'll keep them just in case we have a hard winter. I may need to find a big parking lot for my first experience using chains. Can't wait. 322446


Comments
I have not had the chance to mount the chains and use them. They sit in my car trunk adding weight for better traction on dry roads. If they have function and purpose it could be to keep snow and ice away from St. Louis. I may need to take another winter road trip through the Rockies just to see if these chains really work.

I received my order quickly and will be teaching myself how to install these snow tire chains this evening when I get home. These are the same snow tire chains selling in our area but for a much better price. We are taking a trip up to the mountains this weekend and our area mountains have received hundreds of inches of snow. I wouldn't think of heading up without high quality chains for our car. Thanks so much for the fantastic turn around time I would definitely purchase items from this retailer in the future! Thank you etrailer! 335097


Comments
Well, I believe they are still sitting in my garage. We took a trip to the snow last year and the highway required chains. At the last minute we decided to take my husbands truck rather than my passenger vehicle, so we never did have to use them. Hopefully someday, someone will need them and we will be able to use them :- I appreciate the follow up. I remember everything being great with this purchase and I would purchase from you again in the future.

We ordered these tensioners with a set of Pewag square link, mud service heavy duty chains appropriately sized for our 315/75R16 tires. Those tires have a tall sidewall and so I opted for the tensioners listed for 16 to 20" wheels. However, with those chains and tall sidewalls of our tires, these tensioners lack sufficient reach to get more than three hooks attached to the chains (photo). If you're planning on using these tensioners on a tire with a tall sidewall and a chain that doesn't extend down the sidewall very far (as ours), I recommend mounting the chains and then measuring the diameter of the circle inside the side chains. Call Etrailer with that measurement and see if they can set you up with a tensioner that will fit. Our ordering experience with Etrailer was great - prompt shipping and compassionate customer service when I explained the problem mentioned above. 155423

Estimated ship time from eTrailer was inaccurate since the product turned out not to be in stock; had to wait an additional week before delivery. However the chains did fit my 2015 RAM 2500 Power Wagon with stock tires (Duratrac 285/70-17) and wheels. The rear left parking brake cable is VERY close (~1/2 inch) from the chain, so I had to use a zip tie to keep the extra links from slapping against the cable. There was plenty of clearance up front and on the rear right. Glacier rubber adjusters (PW99) are necessary to remove chain slack. 643013

  • Tension Adjusters for Tire Chains
    We offer several types and sizes of snow chain tension adjusters. You could use Glacier part # PW99 on your 18-inch rims or a multi-arm adjuster like # TCMA3 which offers the advantage of having more than one elastic cord in case one should break.

  • Multi-Arm Rubber Tire Chain Adjusters With Six Attach Points
    We have a few different adjusters that have six attach points. These are designed for different size tires. for tire rims that are 14 to 24 iinches diameter I recommend part # TCMA2. For 15 to 18 inch diameter I recommend part # PW105, and for 19-1/2 to 24-1/2 inch diameter rims I recommend part # PW103. And for rims that are 13 to 20-inches diameter you can use part # TCMA1.

  • Tire Chains for a 2009 Mazda 5 with Cinturato P7 205/50R17 Tires
    For tire chains a lot depends on what type of conditions you will be driving in and how often you need to use the chains. If you just want to have some chains in the vehicle and will rarely use them then going with cable style chains, # PW1034, with rubber adjuster # PW99 would work just fine. These chains are not going to offer the best traction or last the longest but will do in a pinch. All of these chains are Class S rated meaning they need the least amount of clearance. Vehicles...

  • Which Rubber Adjusters are Best for a 2015 Mazda 3 with 205/60-16 Sized Tires
    For 205/60-16 sized tires on your 2015 Mazda 3 I suggest using the # PW99. You're in that mid range where both are listed as a fit but you'd rather not have to stretch them too tight. The tire chains # PW1034 are a great choice for your car since you won't have a lot of internal clearance. You should check your owner's manual for restrictions on installing and using tire chains as well.

  • Recommended Cable Chains For Tire Size 235/45-19
    In this case, tire size will trump vehicle fit, because # PW2029C isn't confirmed to fit your Escape, because they're a fit if the Escape has the size 235/55-17 size tires. As a result, the recommended tire chains for your Escape is the Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains # PW1042. You will also need Glacier Rubber Adjusters # PW99 because these rubber adjusters make it easy to fit and tighten your truck's snow chains in no time. It can be used with any type of Glacier chain.

  • Are Tensioners Required for Pewag Snow Chains # PWE2228S
    We do have tensioners but they are not required but recommended for Pewag chains # PWE2228S. Since the chains you referenced are for 15 to 20 inch tires, you would use rubber adjusters # PW99. The chains themselves do not have any levers or cams to tension the chains.

The rubber adjusters are attached to the side of the snow chains to keep tension on the snow chains. The Glacier V-Bar Snow Tire Chains with Cam Tighteners, part # PWH2821SC, has cam tighteners that will keep tension on the snow chains. You will not need the rubber adjusters on these snow chains.

These chains are sold in the pair. For your vehicle you will need 2 sets for your rear axles.

  • Recommended Tire Chains For 35x12.5r18 Tires On Ford Truck
    For your 35x12.5r18 tires, I recommend the Pewag All Square Mud Service Snow Tire Chains - 1 Pair, # PWE2441S. These are designed for on or off road use in mud or snow. These chains are made from a durable and rust resistant nickel manganese alloy steel. The links are 8.2mm thick and a square link that will give you superior strength and grip. You will also want some rubber adjusters like # PW99 to keep the chains tight. For a slightly more economical option, I recommend the Pewag...

  • Pewag Cable Snow Tire Chains for 275/55-20 Tires
    According to Pewag, the # PW3027C chains you referenced would not be a fit for your 275/55-20 tires, as they would be too small to fit that diameter tire. For your 20 inch wheels, there is a similar style cable # PW3029C that is comparable with your tire size. In addition to the chains, the # PW99 rubber adjusters are recommended. I have linked you to some tire chain FAQ articles that you might find helpful.

  • Recommended Chains for 2015 Toyota Tundra Limited with Tire Size 275/55-R20
    Your first step when considering tire chains on any vehicle is a check of the owner's manual for any guidance or restrictions regarding their use. Many vehicles are limited to using special low-profile S-Class chains that do not require too much wheel well clearance. Before purchasing any tire chain check your vehicle's manual carefully and if in doubt speak to your local dealership. If you plan on using snow chains only once in a great while and on the road only then the Glacier Cable...

  • Will Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains Fit 2016 BMW X6 with 255/50 R19 Sized Tires
    The Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains # PW2029C are snow cables and are confirmed to fit your 255/50 R19 sized tires. The Rubber Adjusters # PW99 are also the correct part you'll want to keep them tight. I found an online copy of your 2016 BMW X6's owner's manual and it states, on page 218, that tire chains should only be used on the rear axle and not to exceed 30 mph.

  • Tire Chains for a Mercedes Sprinter RV with LT215/85-16 Tires
    The first thing you are going to want to do is consult the Sprinter owners manual for specific information on the use of tire chains. If you need Class S chains which require the least amount of clearance around the tire I recommend Glacier square-link chains # PWPLC1146. The square-links offer the best traction and they are constructed of low-carbon steel so they should last you a long time especially if they will not be used very often. You would also want rubber adjusters, # PW99...

    The first thing that I would do is to check your owner's manual to ensure that chains can be used with your 2012 Jeep Sahara. If chains are permitted, the Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains, # PW2028C, that you mentioned would be a good option for 255/70-18 sized tires. For the best performance and traction when using these chains, I recommend installing them on both the front and rear tires as well as using Rubber Adjusters, # PW99.

  • Recommended Tire Chains on Ford F150 with 275-/55-20 Tires
    Snow chains are typically installed on the drive wheels, which in the case of your F-150 would be the rear wheels. On a four wheel drive vehicle, they can be installed on all four wheels if desired. Since it sounds as if you are wanting the chains specifically for this trip, and since they might not see frequent use any time soon thereafter, I would suggest a basic set of chains like the Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains, part # PW2028C.

  • Using Tire Chains on 2014 Ford F350 When Owners Manual Prohibits it
    Sometimes vehicles with little clearance to the inside or above the wheels can use Class-S compatible tire chains like the # TC3031 ladder style cables or the V-style # PW2114V that offer better lateral stability. Both styles are compatible with your tire size, but I cannot recommend anything that would contradict any prohibitions about tire chain usage mentioned in your owner's manual. The # PW2114V includes the # PW99 rubber adjusters, but they're optional with the # TC3031. I'd...
