Class S Designation

SAE Class S tire chains are designed for use on vehicles with restricted wheel-well clearance. Certain newer cars, vans and small trucks, especially those with large, aftermarket tires, may require Class S chains.

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

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

2018 Subaru Outback Wagon

I ordered the snow cables for my Subaru 2018 Outback and received them in 3 days! Your customer service is outstanding! I reordered a second set and received them in 4 days. I just had a chance to use them in Atlanta when we had ice and snow. I used only one set on the front and they worked perfectly. i watched the etrailer installation video for a Subaru and it made the easy to install. It took me less then 5 minutes in my garage. (Outside in the snow and ice might take longer). I drove around Atlanta in the ice and snow and the cables performed flawlessly. I plan to buy a set for my daughter. Thanks again!

2019 Subaru Outback Wagon

Easy to figure out what size tire chain I needed for my 2019 Subaru Outback- like our previous Outback, chains will likely live in the bag and never be used but it is good insurance on the very rare days when there is something 4wd can't handle. Ordered online, got immediate information on shipping date and they showed up on schedule and as ordered. Have used this brand of chain and this company before- everything worked great.

Chains lived in the bag all winter since Subaru handled the snow we got with no problems. Still happyabout my purchase and service from etrailer

2017 Subaru Outback Wagon

They're tire chains, what can I say... The price was competitive unles you look at used chains on [another site]. The etrailer site made it easy and shipment was fast. I'll wait for a clear, dry day and install them on the front wheels of my 2017 Subaru Outback Touring. Then I'll take them off and probably never open the bag again. It's always a good idea to carry chains in the mountains in winter, even if you drive a new Subaru. Also recommended: pack bottled water, some food, a fleece blanket, winter sleeping bag and a candle lantern. And drive with a full tank of gas.

I didn't know how to get chains for my GMC Terrain 2016. We are going to Lake Tahoe in November. On their site there was a writeup about my exact situation. GMC claims there are no chains for that model and they cannot be used on the rear tires. We purchased the equipment in the review because he had used them with success. This includes the Glacier Multi-Arm rubber adjusters and the Glacier cable snow tire chains. We feel comfortable now and hopefully will not need to use them. I spoke to a representative from etrailer who confirmed my purchase would probably work.

- PW1046

I purchased snow chains just in case I need them, will review after I use them. But etrailer is great! ! The customer service at etrailer is fantastic. They helped me with my order and were able to get them to me quicker than I had expected. I will definitely be using etrailer in the future for any accessories I may need for my vehicle.

2016 Subaru Outback Wagon

I purchased a pair of Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains for my 2016 Subaru Outback to ensure that I can comply with Colorado's chain laws. These chains are relatively easy to put on and take off and they store in a convenient carrying bag. The instructions are clear and have helpful suggestions. I really appreciate etrailer's assistance with finding the right chains for my car and getting them to me quickly.

2016 Honda Pilot

Haven't used in snow yet, but tried them on to check fit and they are VERY fast/easy to install (I've always used chains before) and fit very well. Quality looks pretty good (though these are clearly meant for occasional use, not daily living in snow). My only complaint was the 10 minutes it took me to untangle them out of the bag the first time. When I put them away, it was clear immediately that rolling each up individually then 'latching' the hooks to hold the roll in place was a better way than the 'rolling-them-up-together-and-trying-your-best-to-tangle-them' method apparently used at the factory. Also, rolled up individually that way, they fit easily into the bag with plenty of room for the rubber-snuggers, too (some reviews said the bag was too small).

2016 Subaru Outback Wagon

These cable chains were purchased as a gift for my son to use on his 2016 Subaru Outback, so I cannot attest to the actual performance. He is headed to Mt. Rainier at the end of his week with wife and two little children. The Park requires chains no matter how many wheels are being driven. I can say that I enjoyed the shopping experience on the etrailer web-site and found the guidance on which product to purchase very helpful. After reading warnings from Subaru maintainers about the use of chains and possible problems, it took some coaxing to get me to buy. The videos were very helpful showing installation. A good shopping experience in all.

Second time buying from etrailer. Very good communication and speedy delivery. My tire chains where shipped to me days early. George J, from etrailer, sent me an message thanking me for being a return customer and that my chains were being shipped that same day I ordered them. By the way, that was a Sunday. Great personal service from and online retailer. That is uncommon and much appreciated. Thanks George!

I bought these snow chains (cables) for unexpected weather changes while traveling. I have separate winter tires & wheels but don’t want to travel around (1000+ mile trips) with winter set up. Cables will allow me to use factory tires and cables will do the rest. I’ve ordered and used various products from etrailer in the past and always satisfied.

- PW1046
2015 Subaru Outback Wagon

Shipment was timely. Product as expected. After watching the videos on eTrailer tried them on in my garage. Cable chains relatively easy to put on and get a good fit. On a 2015 Outback it's not easy to reach behind the wheel to connect the link but doable. Definitely good to try before doing it in the snow on the side of the freeway!

I cannot review the product right now as I just received it and purchased it as a "just in case" scenario when we drive from SF to Tahoe at the end of the month. However I really appreciated the customer service when I called to make sure I was ordering the right item. The tracking of the item was also flawless from etrailer and the package actually got here a day earlier than scheduled. The cables come in a handy pouch with instructions and a tag with tire compatibility. All good. Will order again from etrailer for sure.

Honda Odyssey

I spent two days trying to figure out which chains were the right ones for my car. I figured out the size of my tire - of the Honda Odyssey, and then realized that all the cheap options, or the more widely available chains were not an option for my vehicle. After giving up on other main-stream online retailers, i went to google and searched for my tire size, which is where I found - the search on the site was excellent. After just a little bit of browsing, I found the one that would work great for me. Ordered the product on a Sunday, a day before a national 3-day holiday weekend, and got a personal email, from the retailer, that they received my order, and needed to check up on actually having the product in stock. That is amazing. They let me know, that if they didn't have it in stock, and couldn't get it to me by the same-week Friday, they would connect with me, otherwise they would do everything they could to get me the product on time. On Monday, which was a holiday ( President's Day ) they emailed again, letting me know that the product had shipped. I received the chains on Thursday, they are exactly what I needed, and now my family weekend trip to the snow can actually happen! Thank you!

- PW1046

They arrived in good condition and on time. Tried them on the car today and they are much easier to put on than my old tire chains. Would give them 5 stars if only the bag was a little larger. Putting the cables back in the bag is like trying to repack a parachute. Took a lot of pushing and shoving to get them in and then zipped up.

  • Spring Snow Chains Recommended for 2018 Subaru Outback with 225/60R18 Tires
    We have exactly what you need! For your 2018 Subaru Outback with 225/60-18 tires, I recommend the Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains # PW1046. They use cables or "spring" style rollers that wrap around wire cross cables which provide the traction you need and are 100% safe to use on your Outback. The Titan Chain Cable Show Tire Chains # TC2019 are also confirmed to fit your Subaru, but because they only offer a 30 day warranty, I recommend going with the Glacier mentioned earlier, which...

  • Low Clearance, Easy to Install Tire Chains for 2021 CR-V Touring Tire Size 235/55-19
    We have cables that fit your tire size of 235/55-19 with the Glacier set part # PW1046. The reason cables are required is because they require a very low amount of clearance since they are thinner than most chains. Now that said the easiest to install chains that fit your tire size that also require the same low clearance would be the Konig tire chains part # TH04115250 which install in a matter of seconds and do not require you to sit or lay down in the snow to install.

  • Should Snow Chains Be Installed on Front Only or All Four Tires of 2019 Honda CR-V AWD
    According to the owner's manual, Honda recommends installing chains on the front tires only. The manual states that because of the limited clearance to the inside of the tire, cable-type chains should be used. The cables needed will depend on the tire size. For a 235/60-18, use # PW1046 or for 235/65-17 tires, use # PW1046. Either set includes the rubber adjusters to keep the cables snug to the tires.
