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. .

While I cannot make a comparison with other models of chains, I bought the PW 2029C as an alternative to the PW1046 which has a keeper tab for the abutments while the PW 2029C has a tensioner which provides for easier tightening in snowy road conditions, in my view, and keeps the lead chains flat against the sidewall, which the single keeper tab on the 1046 does not necessarily; although I did not experience slippage with the 1046, I worried about it.. So while both work well in my limited use, I feel much more secure with the PW2029C and its ease of assembly onto the tires, and in tightening the chains. Purchasing the multi-arm rubber adjuster I would also recommend for difficult and prolonged conditions. Customer Service at etrailer were helpful and knowledgeable and should be contacted with any questions prior to purchase. 606880

Hi, Nice quality of tire chain which fits different sizes and nicely fits my Hyundai Santa Fe SE tream 18 inch tires. Installation is easy with available tension system which allows you to make a tension of chain without any extra tools. Nice looking and does not touch the rims. Highly recommended. 61242

Hi I have the same vehicle with the same size tires. Did you purchase the rubber adjusters and use them? I dont want to spend on items that wont be needed.Thanks in advance!Ed

Damir did not purchase the rubber tensioners to go with the chains. The chains do have a tensioning lever built-in and since your wheel size is on the high end fo the fit range, it should be enough. However, Glacier strongly recommends using the tensioners. Keeping the chains perfectly tight and removing all slack yields better traction and can prevent damage caused by loose 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

1. Super fast shipping - earlier than estimated delivery date. 2. Excellent customer service - they follow up with every process: after order received, after product shipped, after product delivered, follow-up and feedback. The website also share plenty of information about product review and instructions. 3. Great product - with easy carrying bag and detailed instruction. 4. Great price - this is the cheapest price I found online. Will definitely recommend etrailer.com. :) 166803

First time i deal with a vendor that is so efficient. Called their helpline to get info on the right size of rubber adjustors i needed for the PW2029C snow chain tires. Mark M. answered my question and gladly asked me if he could finish my order that i had started online. I think when you call a place like this and they offer such great service, you will still order their product even if they charge taxes and delivery for out of state orders. Thank you Mark M. for great service and my order arrived as promised, ready for the snow this weekend. JP 235075

Product arrived in just a few days using standard shipping. I live in Georgia, but we're traveling to Colorado this winter and bought the cables "just in case." I haven't used them yet, but I'm sure they'll do the job if asked or required by the local authorities. I loved the web page and the ability to be assured of buying the correct size for my car. 310815

Bought the Glacier cable chains and rubber adjusters for my '15 Pilot 4WD as a "just in case" part of my prep to drive up north to Idaho Falls but the trip didn't happen. Delivery was timely. Did a static fitting but did not roll on the cable chains. Looked good but hard to tell without rolling on them. So for now, they're in the bag nice and clean. Thanks for the follow up. 492007

This product had good review so I purchased, however I do not recommend using for SUV or regular sedan. I put them on my 2015 Honda Pilot at Sequoia National Park and there were not enough traction. My tire spun but we were only going side to side. It fit perfect and looked really good, it was easy installation. I had to go down to town and purchased a different type of chain. The thick linked chain type and it worked great. As I was driving into the Sequoia Park, there were at least 5 vehicles stranded either chain broken, or not enough traction and spun side to side. They all were using the similar type of chains as these. 329712


Comments

Phil, thanks so much for your review and your business. You would need to check your owners manual, but according to the manual I found online, cable chains are the only tire chains recommended for the 2015 Honda Pilot, therefore, use of any other chains would be at your discretion. The snow chains should be installed on the front wheels.

I have not had to use the chains yet in the high Sierras, but they were easy to put on and fit quite well. I don't expect any problems. The only negative is they were a tight fit in the bag they came in, and I could not get them compact enought to fit in the bag after trying them on the Toyota. I got a larger gym bag to pack them in and that solved the problem. I liked the light weight of these chains. It made them easier for this old man to handle them. 454036

Overall the tire chains seem pretty decent, but the way they assemble to the tire seems a sketchy. I put them on the other day to test fit them and they are extremely loose at their tightest setting. Luckily about the extra tensioners for 12 bucks which seems to help a ton. I’ve yet to use them other than in the driveway, I’m definatly a bit secpitcal about them coming loose or falling off. The carrying bag for it ripped on my first attempt to open it. Trailer was great for a supplier, quick shipping and great customer service, not 100% sold on the product tho 490867

I bought these tires for a Christmas trip and drove a long 18 hours to visit family. I was very pleased with the service from staff at Etrailer as they understood my concern to have it shipped to me in time to make my trip. I tested the chains out for my lexus rx350 and the chains fit perfectly. I did not end up going through any snowing days so I did not have to use them thankfully, but I will keep them for any future trips and I am glad they fit my tires because my greatest concern was the fit as there were so many options online and trailer was one of the few that allowed me to find the right chains by choosing the type of car i have. 112302

Just what I needed. Easy to use, fast on, fast off, and priced right. My vehicle has low clearance between the wheels and fender wells, so these cable chains are the way to go. I'd recommend them. 312403

Ordered tire chains and the tightening cables for our new car and our annual round trip between Washington and California. Hope we never have to use them, but i was very pleased with the order process. I entered the make and model of the car and it was as simple as that. I feel confident these will fit the car when we have to use them. The order process was smooth and the company even upgraded us to quicker shipping at no extra cost. The chains were well packaged and arrived in good time. The customer service and contacts were all excellent. I will recommend them to anyone who needs this type product. 334062

Used the cables last winter, it was particularly snowy so had to drive about an hour with the cables on, which is unique for California. The only issue I had was the locking mechanism kept coming loose which loosened the cable and caused some thumping. It's a little complex getting the orientation right, but never had a traction problem. These were used on a Ford Explorer and were pretty easy to get on and off. 471657

I haven't tried them out yet, but all indications show that they are fairly well made and somewhat easy to install. Just a couple things, wear gloves when handling, cut my finger getting them out of the bag and the carrying bag issued seems a little small when trying to get them back in after unraveling them out to inspect. Other than that, hope I don't have to use them, but if do at least I have them in my vehicle in case weather changes and I do have to use them on my travels! 461316

Fit well and easy to install. I have not had a chance to use them in the snow yet. I put them on when I first got them to be sure they would fit and drove around the block on dry pavement to be sure clearance was ok, it is much better to put them on and mark the correct adjustment points on a warm sunny day than in the slush trying to make your numb fingers work. 455837

Before using tire chains, I recommend checking your owners manual for tire chain restrictions and procedures. Many vehicle manufacturers will limit the distance and speed your...

  • Tire Chain Recommendation for 2015 Toyota Highlander
  • We can help you with tire chains! There are two stock tire sizes for your 2015 Toyota Highlander: 245/55-19 and 245/60-18. The Glacier chains # PW2029C that you referenced will fit both of these tire sizes. 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 passenger cars are limited to using special low-profile S-Class chains that do not require too much wheel well clearance. Before...

  • Tire Chains for a 2014 Toyota Highlander with 245/55R19 Tires
  • For a good set of chains that is relatively easy to install and would be good for use a few times a year I recommend Titan chain tire chains # TC2324. These chains have square links for good grip in snow and ice. You can see in the video I have linked how they install. On all wheel drive vehicles there are a set of main drive wheels and that is what you would want to attach the chains to. If you wanted, you could get two sets of chains and put them on all 4 wheels. The chains do come...

  • Tire Chain Recommendation for a 2012 Honda Pilot 4WD
  • You should have no problem with the performance of the Glacier Cable Snow Chains, # PW2016C, on your trip, but for superior strength and durability, I would recommend looking at the Pewag Brenta-C 4X4 Tire Chains, # PWXMR80V. The Pewag chains are made of a durable titanium alloy steel that will provide better durability and performance than the low-carbon steel and rubber of the cable style chains. A few things to keep in mind when using snow chains is not to exceed the maximum speed...

  • Tire Chain Recommendation for 2017 Toyota Highlander Limited
  • Getting a clear message on tire chains for newer vehicles is seemingly getting more difficult. On one hand there are several areas of the country that require you have them at least in the car with you and then you have the manufacturers not wanting you to use them as they are constantly trying to stuff larger and larger wheels in their wheel wells. If your owners manual says that the chains are okay but need Class S compatible chains I'd recommend the Titan chains like part # TC2324....

  • Recommended Tire Chains For 2015 Ford Escape With 235/55R17 Tires
  • On page 254 of your owner's manual it states that the largest chains you can use are 10 mm cables or chains only on front axle with 235/55R17 tires. Some tire chains are not Class S rated but are less than 10 mm. I recommend staying on the safe side and use Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains, part # PW2029C. These cables are a low profile so you get a smoother ride and they come with a tote for storage. I also recommend rubber adjusters like part # PW105 to hold the chains more securely...

  • Why Does Ford Exclude Tire Chains for 275/65-18 Tires on a 2016 Ford F-150
  • When a vehicle manufacturer states that chains cannot be used it is generally because there is a potential clearance issue between the inner sidewalls and vehicle components. However, in some places chains or cables are required by law. Since a vehicle manufacturer or dealer cannot tell you to break the law you would have to use a traction device of some kind. Cables such as # PW2028C which fit your 275/65-18 tires usually require the least clearance. For them I also recommend using...

  • Snow Chain Recommendation for a 2015 Audi Q5 with 235/55/R19 Tires
  • The first thing you need to do is consult the owners manual of your 2015 Audi Q5 to see if there are any restrictions on the use of snow chains. We do have Thule chains that would work great on your 235/55R19 size tires assuming Audi says you are okay to use chains. A great option that works great is the Thule K Summit Chains like part # TH02230K66. These also install easily and have nothing draped over the inside of the tire so tire clearance issues are virtually non-existant. I...

  • Recommended Snow Chains for a 2014 Ford Explorer 4WD with P245/60R18 Tires
  • Thanks for sending me information on what your owners manual states for your 2014 Ford Explorer 4x4. The Glacier cable snow chains # PW2029C you referenced will be the ones I recommend based on your owners manual. The spring rollers are wrapped around sturdy wire cross cables for great traction. I highly recommend the rubber adjusters # PW99 as it makes it easy to fit and tighten your truck's snow chains in no time. Snow chains for your 4x4 are usually placed on the rear wheels,...

  • How Long Do Cable Style Tire Chains Last
  • Cable style tire chains such as # PW2029C are for infrequent use. With infrequent use and care they can last several years. They are not the best option for more frequent use or areas that get a lot of snow and ice. A lot of factors will affect the life of any chains including road conditions and vehicle weight so an exact life span is not calculable. If at all possible make sure the cables are rinsed off with fresh water and dry before storing them. If you can tell me the tire size...

  • Snow Chains or Cables Recommendation for a 2011 Ford Escape AWD with 235/70-16 Tires
  • The Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains, # PW2029C, would be a good choice for occaisional use when conditions require the use of snow chains, as long as your Escape has the original tire size 235/70-16 on it. Along with these chains it would be a good idea to use the Glacier Rubber Adjusters, # PW100, to keep the chains tight on the tires. If you think you will be using the chains a bit more than you indicated, or the conditions might require a better bite than cable chains, I recommend...

  • Will Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains fit 235/60R
  • The Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains, # PW2029C, are a confirmed fit for your 2017 Kia Sorento, and are going to fit your 235/60-18 tires. These snow chains are designed to fit tires of many sizes, including that of your Sorento. I recommend the Glacier Multi-Arm Rubber Adjusters, # PW105, to help secure the chain's fit. Keep in mind it is a good idea to check your Sorento's owner's manual for any special instructions about using tire chains on your vehicle.

  • Needing Tire Chains For A 2017 Acura RDX With Tire Size 235/60-R18
  • The Pewag Servo RS Self-Tensioning Snow Tire Chains # PWRS80 will fit a tire size of 235/60-R18. Unfortunately, the owner's manual for the 2017 Acura RDX recommends the use of cables instead of chains. Therefore using the Pewag chains, although they will fit your tires, might be an warranty issue if you have any problems with using the Pewag chains. I recommend using the Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains # PW2029C. The Glacier set are the cable style that Acura recommends for your vehicle....

  • 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.

  • Recommended Snow Chains for 2012 Toyota Highlander
  • I took a look at the owner's manual of your 2012 Toyota Highlander and it said that any snow chains need to be placed on the front wheels. The Glacier Cable Chains # PW2029C are not going to be the most effective solution for you, cables are more of a single-use item and you will need something that will be more effective and last longer. I recommend the Titan Chain Alloy Snow Tire Chains # TC2324 which, if you have the standard 245/55-19 tires on your Highlander, will be a fit as chains...

  • Will Glacier # PW2029C Snow Chains Work on 2011 Chevy Traverse With 255/65/R18 Tires
  • I found an online copy of the owners manual for the 2011 Chevrolet Traverse and it does indeed indicate in section 10-57 that tire chains are not to be used on the vehicle due to limited clearance in the wheel wells. It also indicates that another type of traction device can be used on the front wheels if its manufacturer rates it for the vehicle and tire size. Chevrolet does not specify what these other types of approved traction devices are. We do offer a product from Heininger called...

  • Need Tire Chain Rated 10mm or Less for 2015 Ford Explorer
  • I recommend taking a look at the Titan Chain Tire Chains, # TC2319, for your 2015 Ford Explorer. These square-link, diamond-pattern tire chains provide excellent traction in snow and ice and fit your 245/60R18 size tires. I went to our warehouse to take a measurement of these chains and found that they are 7.08 mm which would meet the 10 mm or less restriction listed in your owner's manual.

  • Should Chains be Used on All Four Wheels of an All Wheel Drive Vehicle
  • It's best to have snow chains on all four wheels of a vehicle to maximize traction for braking, accelerating, and turning. But if you install a set of chains on the main drive axle of a vehicle that can also work. For an AWD vehicle like yours the best route is to put them on all four wheels. You would want to determine which axle is the main drive axle if you plan to go with only one set of chains. You will also want to check with the owners manual of your vehicle to see what Nissan...
