Note: To determine whether you can use snow chains on your vehicle, or if chains might affect your ABS/ESP functionality, consult your owner's manual.


These chains are great for giving you a little extra traction in the snow. But if you live somewhere where you experience heavy snow often, you'll definitely want something more heavy duty than cables. Because these cable chains are lightweight and don't take up a lot of storage space, they are also perfect for keeping in your trunk if you occasionally travel through areas that require you to have chains on hand.


Class S Designation

SAE Class S tire chains are designed for use on passenger vehicles with restricted wheel-well clearance. Most newer cars, vans, and small trucks - especially those with large aftermarket tires - will require Class S chains. If you're unsure about the class of your vehicle, consult your vehicle's owner's manual.


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

Confirming Your Fit

If you know your tire size, you may think you won't need to test fit your new cable chains. But there are a lot of variables that can affect whether chains will fit your specific tires, including your tire type, the amount of pressure in the tire, the amount of tread wear, and the tire manufacturer.


We recommend that you order chains as early in the season as possible to give yourself plenty of time to test fit the chains and reorder if needed. This way, you won't be stuck out in the cold later with snow cables that don't fit.


You can test fit these chains in your garage or driveway, but you'll want to wait until there's snow on the ground to actually drive with them. Likewise, if you're out in the snow and come across bare pavement, you'll want to pull over and remove the chains. Even these low-profile cables can cause damage to the bare pavement, your garage floor, or your vehicle if they break from the wear of riding on a harsh surface.


Installing Cable Chains

Installing cable chains is easy.


Lay chains on the ground to get all the tangles out

1. Lay out the chains on the ground to make sure there are no twists or kinks in the cables.


Cross cable connections have a smooth side that goes against the tire

2. Where each cross cable attaches, you'll notice there is a smooth side and one with an edge. Make sure the smooth side faces in to sit against your tire's sidewall as you drape the cables over your tire.


Feed the cable through the connection loop

3. On the front of the tire, feed the cable through the connection loop until it's tight, then feed the extra cable through the second loop to keep it from flapping as you drive. Repeat this on the backside of the tire.


Optional rubber adjusters ensure a tight fit

Rubber adjusters (sold separately) are recommended to help ensure a tight fit. Connect these to the front side of the cable in a star pattern. Make sure the hooks face away from your tire so your wheels don't get scratched.


Quick Tips:

  • Lengthen the life of snow chains by drying them after each use before you store them.
  • Check out our installation kit with safety lights and a kneeling pad (PO34FRK) to make things a little easier when you're installing cables out in the snow.

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

185/60-15

  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

by:

Really good service (I had to call to make sure they fit my car) and great recommendation on how to install them and the use of tensioners.



by:

I have not used the cables just yet. Hopeful I will not need to since I have AWD. However it's nice to have them just in case. I wasn't sure what ones to get but their customer service was great and shipping was fast. They are a nice set of cables. I definitely do not have any hesitations in using etrailers.



by:

Quality looks good. Fit well on a car with little clearance and not designed for winter condtions.



by:

Great product!
I was worried the cables
will scratch the alloy wheels on my 2011 MB E350 (it is the Sport model with low profile tires), but all works very well! I just used them last week at Tahoe, and they performed perfectly! Make sure to tighten the cables all the way up, on the last metal stud.

2017 Toyota Sienna

Great product. Did a dry run in preparation for a trip up to Yosemite in the winter. I purchased these w/ the Titan Chain Multi-Arm Rubber Tire Chain Adjuster (TCMA2) and it fit great on my 2017 Toyota Sienna SE (P235/50R19). The installation video on etrailer.com was VERY helpful.

easy to put on and easy to take off

Tesla

This does not fit my Tesla Model Y 2021 with 19’ wheels. The website said it does but it is very short. I even bought the chain adjuster separately. I was in the pouring rain before going into the snowy road trying to put this chains on come to find out it doesnt fit. Im very disappointed



by:

I received my order of the Glacier Cable Tire Chains yesterday and both the chains and the tensioner look fine. I have not had a chance to use them yet. HOWEVER, the cloth bag holding the products has a defective zipper. I do not want to place these items in my car with a broken zipper. I could send you the bag for you to see before you would send me a workable one. Thanks.

I did a practice fitting in my driveway with cardboard laid out to run on. Install and fix as expected on A/T tires . In two weeks the real test if it is snowing in the Sierra. Rubber tire cable adjusters not needed, which is good because they are too small to connect all 6 arms.



by:
2017 Subaru Forester

Needed chains for my Subaru Forester to meet the legal requirement that I have traction devices when I go to the mountains and to get me out of trouble in an emergency. I don't actually plan on ever using them.

I immediately installed them to make sure they fit (etrailer guarantees they will) and to make sure I know how to put them on. The instructions were clear and installation was easier than any other chains I've used. I'm not sure if they would stand up to a lot of use, but they meet my needs.

Luckily, I havent had to use them.

Tire cable chains arrived in excellent condition. Got these as a just in case item so haven't had a chance to try them out yet. Fit in the driveway is as advertised. Our experience with ETRAILER has always resulted in great service, the orders are always shipped expeditiously and we’ve never had any problems. That’s why we’re repeat customers.

Carole

We purchased these as a just in case we need them item. So far we have not had to put these cable chains to the test yet.



by:

This chain did not fit my tire. My tire size is 255/45R19, and the website advertises it would fit this tire.

2016 Subaru Outback Wagon

No wonder why this place gets 5 stars. I bought the spring chains for my 2016 Outback, probably won’t use them but some states require you to have them in your car. Awesome website. Easy to find what you need for your vehicle. Fast shipping and very well packaged. Awesome customer service people and if you have any questions they respond fast. Highly recommended and I will use them again.

Kevin

So far so good. I have not actually needed them. However in the mean time I traded in the 2016 Outback and got a 2019 Outback. Looking forward to trying them out if needed.

Ford Escape

As a woman who needs to use these type of chains due to a neighborhood road that terribly ices when it thaws and rains, they work great to keep me from sliding off the road. I own a Ford Escape and can get these on and off with a little work. My only complaint is that last year these chains were recommended for my vehicle and this year your website says I should not be using these chains, but some other model by Glacier. And one other thing that is totally my fault, is that I bought them last year, but did not need to use them so I never put them on my vehicle, so I did not know that they barely fit my tires even though they were supposed to be the correct size for my tires. I am only able to put them on the first link lock thingy and I use the spreader star bungie, so that makes them tight enough for me to drive out of our neighborhood and get to the paved road to take them off. It would be best if I had a little more tightening chain to work with, but that's on me for not trying them on the tires when I got them last year.



by:
2018 Subaru Forester

Haven't used them yet, but they look solid and have easy to follow instructions for installation.



by:

They worked when we needed them. We were caught in a sudden snow storm on the I-5 in Weed CA along with hundreds of other cars. We made it off the freeway to a motel and enjoyed the rest of the night in a warm motel room.

Great, the only thing i was curious about was the rubber tie downs. I am asuming the chains will fit tight enough not to need them?

Rubber adjusters, that are sold separately, are recommended, as the chains you purchased do not have self-tightening cams or adjusters. Here are some for size 15-18 inch rims: item # PW105.



by:
2015 Subaru Outback Wagon

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.



by:
2017 Subaru Outback Wagon

Bought a new pair of Glacier spring tire cables with the adjusters. They arrived in California within a few days. Product purchased for our 2017 Subaru Outback since these are the only authorized tire traction devices for Subaru vehicles. Sold our former Outback after 17 years and 200,000 mile of excellent service. These are almost never necessary on Subaru cars with the rare exception of ice ink conditions on which you can't even stand up. The CHP flags Subaru cars thru without added traction devices because they really aren't needed. A CHP officer once flagged us out of a line of cars being turned around in Truckee when I-80 was closed over Donner Summit because of too much snow and motioned that we were the exception to the rule and were cleared to head on home.



by:
2019 Subaru Forester

great service,even during the holiday rush.
a late decision and bid storm required chains, they got here on time.



by:

I initially purchased the tire chains for use on a trip from Texas to Washington state in October of 2020 but had decent weather and did not need them until a snow storm hit southern Texas this past spring. I had no trouble traveling to and from work during the bad weather. If I did not have the chains, I would not have been driving.



by:
Subaru Outback Wagon

Had them in the Subaru Outback all winter but never had to use them



by:

Theses cables worked perfectly. They were easy to install and use. I hated using chains on my last vehicle but these cables were great. Very little noise and the van handled good with them on.
This was a great investment. I'm about to start using them again for this year.



by:
Subaru Forester

OK I gave the chains five stars without really trying them out. I gave the 5 stars for customer service and speed with which I received the product, also for their website that made it easy to find the right product.

I purchased these for s Subaru Forester that regular chains don't work. We are headed to Colorado where chains or socks are relied to be in your car during winter months. I was leaning towards tire socks until I did some research and found the Utah does not consider socks as adequate.

These chains, from the video seem to as easy to use as possible. Personally I hope I never need to use them!

Excellent Customer SeviceI 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 etrailer.com web site was very easy to navigate to find the correct products. Email communication from etrailer.com 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 etrailer.com

  • Tire Chains for a Toyota RAV4 with 225/65-17 Tires
    It sounds like you are talking about the emergency style chains # PW6081. They strap around the tire on vehicles that have wheels with existing holes or slots to attach to. Or if you mean cable style chains we certainly have some that will fit a 225/65-17 tire size. I recommend the Glacier cables, # PW1042, with rubber adjusters # PW99. The rubber adjusters make installation a little easier and help maintain the proper tension on the cables. Be sure to consult your vehicle owners manual...

  • RV Tire Chains for Thor Windsport 34J for Tire Size 245/70-19.5
    Tire cables are not known for being super long lasting. For vehicle applications you really only will get one or two solid uses out of them before they are worn out so I would agree a chain would be the way to go. I'd recommend a heavier duty tire chain made from higher quality materials like the Titan Chains # TC2228SCAM which is made from the toughest metal used on tire chains, manganese nickel alloy. These fit your tire size of 245/70-19.5 as well.

    The only Glacier brand snow chains we have available, at this time, for the 245/50-18 tire size are the Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains, item # PW1042. For better traction I would use the Konig # TH01594245 chains with the much more superior diamond pattern that handles better with braking and cornering. The are also self tensioning which is super helpful benefit. Both of these choices are S-class for narrow clearance wheel wells. Check your Owner's Manual for any restrictions or requirements...

  • Things to Consider when Buying a Winter Tire for a 2012 Honda CRV
    It depends on the clearances you have in your wheel well, the 235/70R16 will be 20 mm wider and little bit taller. However, for snow driving you actually want to go with a skinnier tire as it will cut through the snow better and give you better traction. If there is a smaller size available in a winter tire for your vehicle I would recommend that over the wider one. Any time you change the overall diameter of a tire you will need to reprogram the computer of the vehicle so that the speedometer...

    I took a look at the online version of the owner's manual for your 2018 Subaru Outback and it does state that the vehicle has very limited wheel well clearance.

  • Where to Install Tire Chains/Cables on a 2016 Subaru Forester
    According to the owner's manual for a 2016 Subaru Forester, tire chains cannot be used because of the lack of clearance between the tires and vehicle body. However, I understand there are certain situations in which they must be used therefore I suggest placing them on all four tires. The reason for this is because your vehicle is all-wheel drive and generally speaking tire chains need to be placed on the drive axle.

    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.

  • Should Snow Chains be Removed When Driving on Dry Pavement
    With snow chains and cables you would want to take them off whenever they aren't needed for a couple reasons. First, they would wear out very quickly this way. Especially since they would be used on dry pavement. And secondly because with snow chains you shouldn't drive faster than 30-35 miles per hour. I attached a couple snow chain FAQ articles to the right for you to check out as well.

    Good news, I can help you with your tire chain inquiry. The LT and P designations are important when selecting tires, because not all tires are equal, but not when selecting tire chains. The # PW1042 cables are a listed fit for your tire size, and are S Class compatible which means that they work well with low tire clearance.

  • Would Ride Quality Change If Switching From Smaller Tire Size to Taller Tire Size
    Those tire sizes sound like vehicle tire sizes as they aren't standard trailer tire sizes. The difference though would be a slightly taller tire. Assuming you had clearance you might notice a slightly smoother ride quality and bumps wouldn't be quite as intense. But it wouldn't be a night and day difference. Your speedometer would slightly off too so that would need to be re-calibrated.

    According to the owner's manual for your 2017 Mini Countryman, traction devices such as tire chains must be Class S compatible, installed on the front two wheels, and only for use on 205/65-16 and 205/60-17 tires. With that being said, I understand certain states require the use of tire chains. Therefore, should you decide to use a set of tire chains anyway, the correct set to fit the 225/80-18 tires on your vehicle are listed in the linked page for you. For a set of tire chains that...

  • Cable and Square Link Tire Chains for 2018 Subaru Outback Wagon
    Yes, generally it is the vehicle drive wheels that most benefit from installation of tire chains. But some auto makers may determine that tire chains should not be installed on certain models, trim levels or tire sizes. It all comes down to clearance between the chains and the components within the wheel wells, such as brake lines and suspension parts. It is therefore always best to check your vehicle owner's manual for guidance about use of tire chains before selecting and installing...

  • Snow Tire Cable Recommendations for a 2006 Honda Pilot with 235/70-16 Tires
    If the Pilot owners manual states that you must use Class S chains/cables then you must go by that recommendation. A class S chain or cable is going to require 15 mm or less of clearance around the tire. For your Pilot we have cables, # PW1042. The PW2119V that you have referenced are no longer available.

  • Recommended Tire Chains For 2016 Ford Mustang With 265/35-20 Tires
    The Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains, part # PW1042 will work on your 20 inch tires you have on your 2016 Mustang. These chains are a nice option for occasional travel. I recommend using a tire chain tensioner like part # PW99 to hold the chains in place when installed.

  • Should Tire Chains be Used on All 4 Wheels of a 2016.5 Mazda CX-5 with Front Wheel Drive
    Tire chains or cables such as # PW1042 should go on the main drive wheels of a vehicle. Since your 2016.5 Mazda CX-5 is a front wheel drive model the chains or cables would go on the front wheels. Since the rear wheels are not drive wheels or on a steering axle there isn't much benefit to having them on the rear. Be sure to consult the vehicle owner's manual for additional information on the use of traction devices.

  • Will Glacier Chains Snow Tire Cables Fit a 225/50-18 Size Tire
    Yes, the Glacier Chains Cables, part # PW1042, fit on 225/50-18 sized tires. On a rim that size I recommend # TCMA2 for the rubber adjusters. Vehicle manufacturers often state in the owner's manual that you can't use tire chains because they might make contact with some part of the car. This is basically a liability thing for them. We haven't test fit the cables on a 2017 Subaru Legacy so I can't say for sure if there will be contact or not but it's pretty unlikely. The only way to...

  • Recommended Snow Tire Chains for 2007 Hyundai Entourage with 235/60R17 Tires
    For your 2007 Hyundai Entrourage, the factory sizes of tires are 225/70-16 and 235/60-17. I cannot recommend any other size tires for your vehicle. For reference the 225/65-17 tires are 28.5 inches diameter with a 8.9 inch width and 5.8 inch sidewall. Your current 235/60R17 tires are 28.1 inches diameter with a 9.3 inch width and 5.6 inch sidewall. Changing your tires would decrease the amount of contact with the road and also decrease your wheel well clearances. I recommend the...

  • Could 31X10.50R15 Replace Tire Size 235/70R15
    The size difference is pretty substantial between the two sizes so it would be a tough fit. You'd be going from a tire that's 9.2 inches wide to 10.5 inches wide. The diameter would also increase by right at 3 inches. A lot of it would depend on the wheel size you currently have and the clearance available on your vehicle.
