Video Transcript for Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to be taking a look at Glacier Cable snow tire chains. Part number PW2029C.These tire chains are going to help you get additional traction in light snow and icy conditions. You'll install these on your drive axle, so you'll want to verify if your vehicle's front wheel drive, rear wheel drive, or all wheel drive. They feature a laddered pattern with spring rollers. The ladder pattern's going to be great for getting traction on starting, acceleration, but they're going to be a lot smoother than your V-bars and other types. So it's going to help reduce road noise and vibration.These are an entry level cable style snow tire chain.

These are going to be great for occasional use, and they're particularly nice in areas where you're required to have safety chains, so you can just keep a set in your trunk just for emergencies.Included with your tire chains, you're going to get a carrying case that'll also allow you to store your chains in a nice compact bag and place it in your vehicle. Included in your bag you get a quantity of two chains so you can have one for each side.They'll meet Department of Transportation's specifications in all states.They're easy to install with the locking mechanism here. This allows you to install it a little bit looser, and then adjust that tension easily. This makes for a much easier and quicker install that will require you not to pull forward so many times and readjust it.Included in your bag you'll get some additional plastic links here, so if you need to add more or if one happens to fall off down the road, you can always replace them.Now it is recommended to use a rubber tensioner to help keep your tire chains secure and center to your tire.And that completes our look at Glacier Cable's snow tire chains. Part number PW2029C..

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

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

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

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 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

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

Hello there, have only test fitted the chains. Did not use them since roads were cleared. I would recommend the larger rubber adjustors.

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

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

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

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

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

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


Comments

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.

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

Thanks for the follow up William. I did want to let you know that a set of adjusters something like the # PW105
Glacier Multi-Arm Rubber Adjusters - Light-Truck Chains - 15" to 18" Rims - 1 Pair
$21.81
might help with the fit issues you are noticing.

These were a bit more expensive, but they were the only ones I found to fit my tire size. When they arrived, the chains were of a higher grade than those I've used before. They also had a nice mechanism for clinching them closed which is better than other chains I've used. 27970

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

Cable chains look more sturdy than I anticipated so should do well for snow and ice. My issue is that the cables are difficult to get back into the nice bag container, once you unpackage the cables. I guess I will expect to get grimey putting away dirty and wet cables., they should come with a bigger bag. 115505

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

  • 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 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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,...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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....

  • 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...

  • Low-Profile Class S Snow Chains for 2013 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Van 2500
  • The low-profile-type of snow chains referred to in the manual for your 2013 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 2500 Van with LT245\75R\16 tires are referred to as Class S snow chains. This type of chain is designed for vehicles whose wheel wells have limited clearance and where standard chains might interfere with brake or suspension components. Please note the chains you referenced, part # PW2029C, do not fit your tire size. The two linked articles on snow chains will provide you with some useful...

  • Recommendation on Tire Cable Chains for a 2016 Acura MDX with 245/55-R19 Tire Size
  • When deciding if to use tire cables or chains you must consult the owner's manual of your vehicle for any restrictions or limitations. Some manufacturers will outright state that the use of cables or chains my cause damage that could void your vehicle's warranty. Although a manufacturer might discourage the use of chains, you need to follow the chain laws of the state you will be traveling through during winter conditions. If you decide to use chains or cables, the Glacier Cable Snow...

  • Recommended Tire Chains for 2009 Ford E350 Passenger Van
  • According to my research your 2009 Ford E350 van came from the factory with either 225/75-16 or 245/75-16 size tires. We offer tire chains that fit both tire sizes. It is still always a good idea to check the vehicle owner's manual for any guidance or restrictions regarding use of tire chains. For example, some vehicles can use chains only on specific tire sizes; others may be able to use them only on one axle but not on the other. I reviewed an online edition of the owner's manual for...

  • 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...
