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

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

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 have not used them in the snow yet but I did install to see the level of difficulty. As per the video I watched installing on a 2016 Honda Odyssey which is what I own, it was exactly the same with no surprises, very simple. I'm not giving 5 stars only due to the fact that I have not used them in the snow so I have no performance results as of yet. As per the video, I also bought the PW105 tensioner straps. 592214

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. 695899

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. 718917

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). 351427

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! 336423

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. 331585

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. 343696

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. 572404

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! 468118

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! 468378

Nice company to do business with . Easy to understand what product to buy for my application. Price was right and product is not cheap throwaway. Price was good enough I bought two setts of chains for my 2017 Honda Ridgeline. If needed can put one set on each end of the vehicle. I travel a lot as I'm an inspector for a state board. Now can put these in the trunk and have them if needed. 322583

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. 473320

We go to Honduras in a Mission every year. We set up medical and dental services in the village up the mountain where only 4x4 can reach. When it rains the only way we can get there is if we set up these chains. Is like night and day the difference. Without chains we got stuck with 3 of the trucks. We set up the chains and it felt as we were driving a tank. 280107

I use the product on a limited basis (really snowy conditions) but they provide great traction. I have 4wd with my JGC so accelerating and driving aren't the problem, it's the stopping. Even at slow speeds, driving down windy hills on the commute is problematic for any SUV. These chains definitely provide the traction you need in back road driving. Plus you do not have to shell out $600 on snow tires. 6655

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. 233915

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 etrailer.com - 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! 607200

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.

  • The Glacier Cable Tire Chains, part # PW1046, are confirmed to fit the 225/60-18 sized tires on your 2018 Subaru Outback. With an 18 inch rim you definitely want the # TCMA2 adjusters even though the size range for the # TCMA1 says they'll fit. You'll have a much easier time installing and using the # TCMA2.

  • We have several tire chain options that will work with the 245/60-18 tires on your 2016 Honda Pilot. For the cable type we have # PW1046. These are best for infrequent use or if you have to have something in the vehicle to be in compliance with the laws in some areas. We also have # PW1946V which has the cables at more of an angle across the tire tread and will offer a little better traction. I have linked videos of both types for you.

This means you will want to go with a tire chain set that is Class S compatible, which simply indicates that they are specifically designed for vehicles like yours and will require very little clearance to install. It also states that traction devices should only be used on the front tires. I do recommend checking your copy...

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.

  • Cable Style Tire Chains for 225/65-17 Tires on a 2017 Subaru Outback

I also recommend rubber adjusters # PW105 to keep the cables tight and in place. You will need to use the chains if there are road signs indicating they are required. Other than that if you sense any slipping at all or feel unsure then it would be a good idea to put them on.

  • Snow Chain Recommendation for 2019 Subaru Outback Wagon with Tire Size 225/60R18
  • We have similar tire cables to the Titan set you referenced that do fit your tire size of 225/60R18 like with the # PW1046 from Glacier but the # TC343DC would not fit. If you wanted my recommendation though I would go with the Konig Easy Fit chains part # TH04115245 since this provides the ultimate in traction, durability, and ease of install. These literally install in a matter of seconds and don't require you to roll around on the ground at all to install either. Check out the install...

  • Snow Tire Chain Cables for 2017 Subaru Outback With 225/60-18 Tires
  • For your 2017 Subaru Outback with 225/60-18 tires, the correct fit is the Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains # PW1046, which are the same snow chain cables as the ones you asked about, but a different part number to fit your size tires. I highly recommend adding the Glacier Multi-Arm Rubber Adjusters # PW105 because they ensure consistent tension of the cables around your Outback's tires at all times. I have added some photos of these cables installed on an Outback for you to take a...

  • Recommended Class S Snow Chains for 2019 Toyota RAV4
  • Class S snow chains are the chains that offer the lowest profile and are designed for vehicles that don't have a great deal of clearance at the top and inside of the wheel well- so they're perfect for your 2019 Toyota RAV4 and the profile of your tire in the wheel well. Your vehicle manual likely makes the recommendation not to use snow chains because of the lack of clearance with your tires and the potential damage that could be caused to the wheel well components if you were to use a...

  • 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...

  • Adding Links to Tire Chains and Recommended Tire Chains for 2017 Subaru Outback
  • Depending on the type of tire chains you have, you may be able to add a few links on the inside to better fit your wider tires. As long as you have the proper tools and make sure the added width and links don't interfere with the truck's brake line, this should work just fine. Please note though that making any alterations like this will likely void the warranty on the chains. With that being said, since it sounds like you have been using these chains for a while, it may be time for...

  • Snow Chain Recommendation for 2018 Subaru Outback Wagon with Tire Size 225/60-18
  • We don't carry the Z-Chain brand of tire chains but I am familiar with them. They basically are a cable style traction device for tires very similar to ones we carry. Your 2018 Limited Subaru Outback has the tire size of 225/60-18 which for a set of similar cables we have the Glacier set part # PW1046 which would fit and work well. We had the chance to install these on a 2017 Subaru Outback similar to yours and found they fit and worked well. If you check out the install video link I attached...

  • Snow Socks or cables
  • Between the Snow Sock and a set of snow cables, the snow cables, all though sometimes cumbersome to install, will give the better traction on ice and snow than the Snow Sock. According to our fit guide, your 2017 Subaru Outback Wagon had two tire size options available. Your vehicle should have either 225/60R18 or 225/65R17 tires installed. In these tires sizes the only thing available would be tire cables. If you have the 225/60R18 tires, then the Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains,...

  • Subaru 2015 Outback AWD Snow Chain Recommendation
  • Using chains on all four tires will give the best traction for braking, turning, and acceleration. So if possible I would recommend going that route. But in most cases you can get away with just one set of chains or cables. To determine which axles your 2015 Subaru Outback should have chains installed on you will need to consult your owners manual. The cable set part # PW1046 that you referenced has been confirmed to fit your tire size so they would work great for an emergency set of...

  • Snow Tire Chain Recommendations for 2016 Subaru Outback w/ 225/60-18 Tires
  • The owner's manual of your Subaru Outback states in no uncertain terms that tire chains should not be used on your vehicle. "Traction Devices" like cables may be used if they meet Class S specifications and are used on the front tires only. For cables, I'd recommend using # PW1046 from Glacier Chain along with # PW105 tensioners to keep the cables tight.

  • Cable Tire Chain Fit for 225/60-17 Size Tires on 2012 Subaru Outback

These chains are Class S compatible, meaning they will require minimal clearance, 15 mm, between the tire sidewall and vehicle. Using rubber adjusters will help keep the tire cable secure on your vehicle's tire. For your 17 inch rims, you will want the Glacier Multi-Arm Rubber Adjusters for 15 Inch to 18 Inch Rims # PW105. I recommend checking the owner's...

  • Confirmed Tire Cable Chains For 2017 Subaru Outback Wagon With 225/60-18 Tires
  • I went through our fit guide and see the 225/60-18 tires are listed as a confirmed fit for the Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains, # PW1046. The tag included with the chains may not have some tire sizes listed. Since your vehicle is so new the tire size may have been added after the chains you received were made and packaged. I called my contact at Glacier and they told me the # PW1046 is confirmed as a fit for your tires. Using snow socks would be good if you just needed to briefly use...

  • Tire Chain Recommendation For 2015 Subaru Outback
  • In the owner's manual for your 2015 Subaru Outback, it should state whether the acceptable tire chains are limited to Class S Compatible. If you are unable to find that information in the manual, the dealership should be able to answer that question for you. The concern when considering tire chains is due to the clearance needed. Traditional chains might not be recommended for your vehicle. Minimum clearances must be maintained around spring clips, fenders, braces, splash pans, fuel...

Check out the review video I attached for more info. You will want to check the owners manual of your Honda Odyssey to determine if there are any restrictions on snow chain usage with your vehicle.

  • Tire Chain Recommendations for 1993 Tioga Arrow Class C Motorhome w/ 225/75-16 Tires

The V bar chain links will bite into snow and ice, providing great traction. If you went that route, I'd also recommend tensioners like part # TCMA2.

  • Should Tire Chains be Installed on Front or Rear Tires of a 2016 Honda Odyssey
  • I looked at an online owner's manual for your 2016 Honda Odyssey and it says that chains should only be used on the front tires. You should verify this with your owner's manual to be sure. The Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains # PW1046 are confirmed to fit your tires as long as you have the factory tire sizes of either 235/60-18 or 235/65-17.

For that the snow cables part # PW1046 that you referenced would be what I would recommend. We have snow socks like the ISSE # TCH74 which do fit your 2016 Subaru Outback Wagon but a lot of places do not consider them to be an adequate enough traction device.
