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 Chevrolet HHR

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 Cable Snow Tire Chains Review

Today, we're going to be taking a look at the Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains, Part Number PW20286. These cable chains are designed to fit tires from 15 all the way up to 20 inches and offer a 35 mile an hour maximum speed. These chains are great for occasional use. They've got a sturdy steel wire construction around the outside, as well as on the cross cables. They've got hardened springs that cover the cross cable. It's going to provide that traction we need.

They'll move freely back and forth and really get embedded there, so we can get good grip on that ice and snow. They've designed it with a nice, low, profile design to help keep and maintain a smooth ride. Also, these are going to work great on both front wheel drive and rear wheel drive vehicles. The ladder design on these chains is going to meet all Department of Transportation requirements in all states. We're here on the passenger side of the vehicle. We spread our chain out here, just to make sure we don't have any kinks or any tangles that we need to work out before we get started. We're working with a tire size of 275-55R20, but again, many different sizes available with these Glacier chains, so you'll have a wide variety of sizes that these are going to fit. The first thing you want to look for is the is yellow, triangle shape tag.

This is going to say right hand side, or left hand side, and give you the indication of which way the tires should be rotating. That arrow will be facing towards the front of the car. We'll now move that arrow and that yellow tag down, around to the front side of our tire there. We'll want the first rung of our ladder to be tucked nicely right underneath the front side of our wheel, there. Give it as much slack as it needs. Get it tucked in there, just like that.

When we roll forward, we'll be able to gather that up right along the rear here. Maybe up here in the top somewhere, so we can get it connected. We'll now pull back and get as much slack as we can out of the front side of our chains, here. Then we can bring our rear up. On the back side here on the rear, we'll bring the cable right through that, and we'll have to rotate up right into that catch point. We'll then bring our rest of our slack out here to the front side. Just like on the rear side there, we've got another catch here.

We'll want to choose one of the mounting locations here. We've got 7 to pick from. On the rear, we use the second. That means those here on the front, we need to use the first, the second, or the third. Once we have that in place and in that set location, we'll use the large lever. Take up some of that slack. See if you can't get that last one. There we go. We'll pull that down. That's going to give us all the tension we'll need. The leverage is designed to come down and hook on to the cable. Depending on where you'll be positioning your cable, your tag end may be a little bit longer. They've got two nice catches designed right in here. You can simply clip it into there and hold it. Keep it from flopping around on you. WE've got our rubber adjuster, here. This is Part Number PW99. It's got 5 hooks on it. We're just going to find 5 locations around our cable chain, here. We're going to hook these in all the way around, 5 different locations facing out away from our sidewall. We don't want to run any risks of getting them up there and having any damage occur. You just want to put some tension on there to stiffen that up a little bit. We're going to drive forward a few car lengths. We'll double check it just to be sure we don't have any extra slack in there that we need to get out or any issues to deal with. With our chain secure, that's going to complete today's look at the Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains, Part Number PW2028C. .

I tried them on; and they fit well. I'll be ready for my subdivision's icy conditions next time. Thanks for the rapid service, and here are some photos from the test today; though you may not want to use the tension photo, because the clips should have been rotated to the next section 110017

These tire cables are an excellent option for snow and ice. They are very easy to install. I've watched videos on line for installation, however, the written instructions are pretty basic and easy to follow. Obviously, doing the installation out in the snow/ice can be more challenging than in a garage, but the installation is really as easy as it gets! Recently we were hit with a snow/ice storm. We put these on our vehicle and were easily able to drive around without fear of sliding. The product grips the road/ice and you feel as though you have a lot of traction when driving. We like the product so much that we've purchased some for all of our other vehicles. This has been a good "Peace of Mind" purchase for us. Even though we live in a climate that doesn't have a lot of snow, it's also a location in which all roads are not necessarily treated. Even for that once or twice a year snow storm this has worked well. I highly recommend the product! 333473

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. 323707

The service from etrailer was spectacular! They upgraded my shipping request for a faster delivery, with no additional charge. The package arrived within three business days. That is about five days earlier than I originally expected. I have just unpacked my cable snow tire chains and the optional rubber adjusters (which I strongly recommend) and everything looks great. As a rural mail carrier I hope I don't need to use the snow chains very soon, because snow and ice create a real problem on the back roads. I couldn't complete my route without cable snow chains. Thank you 115864

We received our tire cables in less than 24 hours after ordering them. Yeah! We had a trip planned to the coast which takes a drive over the coast range mountains usually not a problem here in Oregon....but we got a crazy snow storm and traction devices required. We have a Subaru Impreza which requires special traction device so we googled and found them available @ We now have them and are leaving for the coast and our getaway. They work great and we are very happy with the service and speedy customer service. Thank You 332201

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. 373130

I put these on an '08 Miata. Totally disappointed. Don't waste your money, these are terrible for traction. If you're on ice or pavement, they are down right dangerous. I actually had to take them off to get traction. Chains work much better if you have enough clearance in the wheel well. 168031

The chains arrived a few days after I placed my order. They fit my 2012 Mazda 3 perfectly. I live on a steep hill and last winter my car had trouble climbing the hill when it was covered with ice and snow. Hopefully these will help me get home! 162636

Review from a similar Glacier Cable in Tire Chains

Can't really say how they work, love the storage bags they come in, purchased them just in dealings with etrailer have been nothing but perfect, there online dealings top notch! 110378


I purchashed these cable chains because I heard that the car I have doesnt like snow at all. Well I soon found that out when we had only a 12 inch of snow and all I was doing is spinning all over the road. I had the chains but thought it was just a half inch of snow every car can drive in it, Not me, all over the road. Well I learned my lesson, now we are having 3 1/2 inches of snow and Im worried are these cable chains going to work? Much to my suprise the chains are on and I have to drive about 12 miles now. The roads were so bad that cars were all over the sides of the roads and in ditches. This was Friday1/9/15 bad morning for all of us in ct. I will have to say these things were like having 4 wheel drive but better because now i can also stop good. There is no way I could have gotten out of the drive way with out them. I drove the 12 miles and at times going 35 to 40 mph no problem at all. Later the same day the weather cleared up and I took off the chains and noticed there was no wear on them, not at all. I had chains years ago and you have to keep watch on the wear so they dont break. These looked brand new and after the snow dried off of them I rolled them up and they are set for the next storm. Best product purchased that was under $50.00 and worked better than ever expected. Thank you.

Well I have to say I have had to use these chains 4 times now and I am so pleased with them and how well they work. Now with this last storm with 14 inches of snow I was able to get through the snow and Ice when even the 4 wheel drives were having a hard time. I can not get over how my car can get through the snow when it is higher than the center of the wheel and still being able to make it through with no problems. With out the chains the car would get stuck in 2 inhes of snow but now with the cable chains its not a problem. I have driven both 4 wheel drives and rear wheel drive limited slip trucks and these cable chains put those to shame. The traction you get with them is unreal and everyone is asking how are you getting around with only those cable chains so well. All I say is you have got to get a set and wait for the snow and be amazed your self. And they dont cost much at all for what they do. They are the best, dont wait to get stuck, buy them now!!!!!!!!

Review from a similar Glacier Cable in Tire Chains

I just tested these tire cables for fit. Installing them is not as easily done as the etrailer video indicates. So, to all of the reviewers who've not even tried them on yet (how can one usefully review an unused product?), I'd suggest that you practice doing so before you need them. These cables are for a front wheel drive, 1997 Honda Accord wagon and are not my first tire chains. The installation process is a bit different than that shown in the video. Installing them alone, in ideal conditions, is somewhat awkward and time consuming. Installing them on a chain installation pull-out, with your gloves on, when it's very cold, windy and snowing, is even more awkward and time consuming. Anyway, today it was warm at about 30 degrees F. Still, it took me about 20-30 minutes to get them on and install the chain tighteners (the chains needed the tighteners for a good fit as they were a bit too loose without them on the 195/60 R15 tires). There being no snow, yet, I settled for test driving them, at 20-30 mph, on the dirt road that passes by my house. They stayed in place and needed no readjustment. Durability is still a question, thus, 4 stars rather than 5. The test finished, the chains were removed, cleaned, sprayed with WD-40 to prevent rust, then packed back into the included carrying bag. My first line of attack regarding driving on snow and ice is always an excellent set of winter tires. The chains are simply back-up for those very rare times when the tires aren't enough and/or the authorities won't allow you to continue on your way without having tire chains installed on your vehicle. 449877

Review from a similar Glacier Cable in Tire Chains

OK for the price. More junk from China. I bought these for our new Grand Cherokee because CA state law requires me to carry them whether I need them or not. (e.g. In 14 yrs of snow driving in our old Volvo AWD I never once opened the box of chains for that car and gave them away with the car). I do NOT expect to ever have to use these on our new Grand Cherokee either so I guess it doesn't matter much what I think of these... HOWEVER, I will just say that I was disappointed to find that these have no application chart provided with the chains. I have never bought a set of chains that did not give a semi-complete list of all applicable tire sizes. These only list 4 sizes (not mine) and then the "Made in China" tag simply states that there are also other sizes as well. etrailer only states that these are 'verified' to fit my car. If it ever were to really come down to it, I hope they do because there's no way I'm going to waste my time and energy 'trying' them on when I'm never going to need them anyway. I wanted the expensive Thule that Jeep recommends for our Cherokee and would have paid 3 times as much to know that I have the best but I also truly believe that it's very possible I would never use them so these cheap ones I will feel better about not keeping if I ever get rid of the car. 353928

Review from a similar Glacier Cable in Tire Chains

These chains actually fit the front wheels of my Subaru Outback. (225/65-17) Unlike the "EZ" chains I'd previously bought from online-retailer "A," these chains have inner and outer cables with a sufficient length (circumference) to sit at the widest part of the tire as opposed to the other chains I'd ordered from brand "A" that, at the cross-link points, fell inside the 17" wheel diameter, and therefore interfered with the suspension components of the front wheels. I'll admit that the split chains that DIDN'T work for me were much easier to install, and they appeared to be of a little sturdier constructions, than the PW1042 chains that I now have, but I couldn't get circumference information for the other company's chains, or confirmation that they'd fit my car, not just my tires. The pw1042 chains have equal-length inside and outside cables, and they are adjustable, so I can make sure that the inside cable is snug enough, but well clear of the car's suspension. The other company's "EZ" chains offered no such adjustment. I'll probably be using the second notch on the inside of the tires, and then the third or fourth notch on the outside of the tires. The rubber adjusters that I also bought will take up any (not much) slack that there is. 296415

Review from a similar Glacier Cable in Tire Chains

I have purchased these cable chains for the 2nd time and I am so happy that they came in just in time. The 1st set I bought was used so much this season that I did use them on dry pavement and then on snow and ice. We were going through so many storms every 2 days and some days I didn't take them off like it was advised to. I knew the 1st set were getting warn down quickly so I ordered another set. Well 1 by 1 the chain links started to snap, I am so happy that when they snaped I heard a sound and pulled over and just cut off the remaining part of the snaped one. Then I looked over where the chain snaped there was "no" damage to my car at all. Years ago I had chains and when the chain snaped it riped apart the side of my truck. These are made so if a chain link snapes there is no damage. These cable chains are the best ever, when you have a newer car or truck. Very with these cable chains and will buy another set when needed again. Very happy, Barry. 177402

Review from a similar Glacier Cable in Tire Chains

Excellent Customer Sevice I live in Florida and our family is taking a ski trip to the mountains of North Carolina. Last year, we drove to Greensboro in our van but rented a 4WD vehicle to drive to the mountains. This year we want to avoid that hassle so snow chains were a must-have precaution. The web site was very easy to navigate to find the correct products. Email communication from was continuous and prompt throughout the entire order, shipping, delivery process. The chains shipped quickly and I received them very fast. As the instructions suggest, I have "dry-fit" the chains in my driveway before actually needing them. They fit perfectly and are very easy to install. As a matter of fact, I'm not sure I even needed the rubber adjusters because I can only stretch the adjuster to attach to the chains at two points (the adjusters have five hooks). I have not used the chains to drive in the snow yet and I’m hoping I won't need to use them during our trip. But if I do need them, I am prepared and ready to go thanks to 4634

Review from a similar Glacier Cable in Tire Chains

I bought this product for my Ram truck to retrieve fire wood at the top of my snow covered mountain land. The snow was 6 inches deep, very dense, and mixed with layers of ice. The ascent was about 150 feet over a distance of 300 yards. All 4 tires were fitted with this product. I was not able to accomplish my goal. The truck could not get the proper traction to navigate the hill. Without tramping hard on the gas, the tires just spun and dug holes to the stone lane surface. I can't fairly rate this product on it's performance because there may not be any tire chain that would have worked under these treacherous conditions. However, after taking the cables off, I was unable to roll them up to get them back into the bags they were in. For that reason I give them a poor rating. I would love to see a video of someone trying to do this. My solution was to make a wooden spool for each pair on which I rolled them up for storage. The bags are too small, especially for one person. The manufacturer failed to provide an easy means for storage. 122536

Review from a similar Glacier Cable in Tire Chains

Fit perfectly on my Goodrich KO II 315-75R16 tires. My spacing on my vehicle is a bit close, so expect this low-profile design to minimize problems. I'll use for offroad adventures in my Jeep JK with 2.5" lift. Only reason I didn't give it five stars is because the slot for the tightening lever is at a slightly different angle than the cable that must slip through it. Despite instructions that tools shouldn't be used, I had to use a screwdriver to slightly pry the cable to the correct angle to slip into the slot. The angle should have been proper, or perhaps slightly wider, and that would not have been necessary. I expect different tires sizes will have different experience with that. They do come with a fabric case, but the zipper is pretty lightweight. I'll be surprised if it lasts very long before breaking. 439901

I have not used the chains yet and hope I never need them! I ordered them "just in case." But they look to be of high quality. And they appear to be exactly as described. I would highly recommend this merchant. They provided good communication, the product was well packed and it arrived much earlier than promised! 168020


Quite frankly, Ive never taken them out of the box. I live in California and weve had such a drought... But this year is looking different, I may have to try them out this weekend!

I couldn't get my motor home back from repair because of deep snow so looked around for chains and settled on these cable chains. If it wasn't for the -25 wind chill making my fingers numb installing would have been easy. The only problem was one lever lock wouldn't stay closed. I can cure that but hope to never use them again. Great product! 330499

Review from a similar Glacier Cable in Tire Chains

Ordered 3 things late on Sunday. Got a call early on Monday, not an email, a call. From a very nice young(my assumption) lady to inform me that one of the items I ordered was discontiued and they just ran out of their stock - before my order of course. But, this was no big deal, they had two other solutions. I opted to just take my other two items. Paid a mere $7.50 for 3-5 day shipping, well, yeah, its Tuesday, and I got it early this afternoon. Thats a total of less than 44 hours, with a repackage due to the order change and I had the exact items I bought in my hand. Only thing I'd suggest - make the website more iPad friendly. Some of the picture/text boxes were stacked on top of one another. Other than a website that could use a little cleaning up, the company experience was fantastic. I am a first time orderer,er,er and will do it again once I can get permission from the boss(wife). 109043

Review from a similar Glacier Cable in Tire Chains

The chains arrived sooner than expected and were easy to install on my 2015 Subaru Forester. Because of the clearance between tire and wheelwell this chain was recommended. The video,which shows them being installed on a 2015 Subaru Foresters rear wheels,contradicts the owners manual which tells you to install them on the front wheels. The price was very reasonable. The multi arm adjusters I feel are a necessity and should be included with the chains at an additional cost. Finally, I have not tried them out yet but am confident they will give me additional traction in snow. erailer is a very reputable company and I highly recommend them. 411322

Review from a similar Glacier Cable in Tire Chains

Product looks well made and installation is easy... I think is the easiest to install chains I have owned. So why 2 stars?? The chains came without rubber adjusters... and you need them. I installed the chains in my wife SUV, following the instructions provided in the video and after driving 400 feet the chains went off. I decided not to install them again and ordered the rubber adjusters but honestly, those should be included with the set. If you decide to go for this brand/model, order the adjusters or you will have to stop every few yards to reinstall. Glacier should include them.. is $ us more to the price of the chains.. If those are not included means adjusters are not needed but they are. I will update the review once I receive the adjusters and use the chains again. 332743

Review from a similar Glacier Cable in Tire Chains

Chains arrived very quickly, faster than predicted and anticipated. Great communication from eTrailer, and lots of info on website The chains do fit onto the front tires of my 2007 Honda Pilot EX, but I had to make an alteration to keep the interior hook from hitting the strut tube, which is very close to the tire. I flattened the "F" shape hook down to a much flatter profile, which seems to work, although it is still very close to the tube upon rotation. I think these are a good product, but you might consider looking into the 'V' profile version as another option, if the clearances of the interior latch might be better. Overall, fantastic company, great customer service, would highly recommend them. I will post pictures or updates as I use the chains more often. 108757

I will provide some recommendations for each size for you. First for the 245/70-17 if you plan on infrequent use then going with a set of cables, # PW3010C, with rubber adjusters # PW99 would be the way to go. Cables are great if you seldom need chains and/or live in an area where chains are not required by law. For frequent use and/or...

  • Cable Tire Chains for a 2013 Ford C-Max Energi
  • If the owners manual says not use tire chains then I cannot recommend going against that. However, it is a Catch-22 because in some areas of the country, chains are required by law. I would speak with Ford to see how they handle that discrepancy. If they allow you to use chains then you could use either # PW1034 (and rubber adjuster # PW99) or # PW1938V that you have referenced if the tire size is 225|50-17. If you have a different tire size, let me know and I can make other recommendations....

  • Compatibility of Tire Chains on Tires on 2012 Toyota Corolla S

  • Cable Style Tire Chains for a 2015 Subaru Impreza with 205/55-16 Tires
  • I assume it is talking about cables such as # PW1034. But they are laboring under the assumption that all tire chains have to fit around the back side of the tires. While some chains do not have parts that fit around the back side of the tire none of those fit your tire size. Cables are still going to have parts that fit around the back side of the tire. The cables listed above will fit the 205/55-65 tires on your 2015 Subaru Impreza but I also recommend tensioners # PW105 to keep them tight.

These have an outside diameter of just under 1/3 inch. When tire chains are installed it is not recommended to drive over 30 mph, so between the speed and the snow on the ground, you should not have that bumpy of a ride.
