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 V-Trac Cable Snow Tire Chains Road Test

Speaker 1: When snow and ice make driving difficult tire chains can give you the traction you need to maintain control of your vehicle. Laws regarding snow chain use vary by region. Your area may require the use of tire chains in certain weather conditions. You'll also want to check your owner's manual to see what your vehicle's manufacturer says regarding tire chain use.Let's look at our tire chains in action. These are great for light snow and ice. The diagonal V-pattern offers a steadier, more refined ride than traditional cross cables.

The steel rollers help to grip the road. These include a rubber adjuster to maintain tension on the chains, while the low profile design offers a smooth ride over larger square link chains. Check out our handling as we turn. And check them out when we brake.

Review from a similar Glacier V-Trac in Tire Chains


The chains were delivered quickly. I can't give a review because we never needed to use them. They haven't even been out of the bag they came in. Now we don't have the same vehicle so we can't se them on the new one since the tires are different. We had to get more chains for the new car. I wish you had a deal where you could send back unused chains a year later for a different size. 321540

The chains were to small to fit the tires of my truck. Patrick O handled the problem quickly and to my satisfaction. Thanks for the great service. 336022

Review from a similar Glacier V-Trac in Tire Chains


I purchased the Glacier V-Trac Cable Snow Tire Chains PW2114V. The order was delivered quickly and the shipping was free. I have a 2015 Ram with P275 60 R20 tires. There are not many styles that fit the tire. I read a review where the purchaser said they did not fit. The cables are a very tight fit and take a little extra finessing, but they do fit. I am very happy with the product. 171892


Comments

Is your 2015 Ram a 1500, and have you used the chains without incident? My concern is the close proximity of the rear brake hose to the inside of the rear wheel.

I have a 2012 Dodge Ram with the same tire size. I am looking to get a set of snow chains and wanted to see if you used yours and how it was? I keep seeing you cant put chains on the rear tires due to the break line. Did you run into this?Thank you

Chains broke after 2 days of usage. Etrailer basically told me to ask the manufacturer to fix it. They were not interested in replacing the broken chain. Will not buy from Etrailer again. Since they don’t stand behind what they sell. 469827

I love these cables. Worked very well. Easy to put on. Good quality. Worth the money. I trust myself when driving in the snow or over ice when these cables are on my tires. Good brand. 235577

Review from a similar Glacier V-Trac in Tire Chains


Purchase went smoothly. Fast shipping. I have not used the cable snow chains yet, but I did put them on my car to make sure they fit. It takes a few minutes to put the clips on the rubber tension ring. It is best to do this before you need them. Directions with the chains are in small print and not very helpful. Look at the etrailer tutorial video on their web-site - very helpful. 345209

Cable Chains Thank you once more. The cable chains look like they are worth the wait. I thank you for immediately informing me that they were out of stock and your offering of another type. I haven't an opportunity to use them just yet, but the installation looks easy and I expect them to be successful when needed. I got these to assist in the upper mountain conditions, when four wheel drive needs additional help! I may even get another set for the front of my vehicle if I feel they are needed! Again, it is a pleasure dealing with superior people and real business that cares! 4186

Everything arrived on time and as it should. I was gald I tried them on first just to get the hang of installation. The first one took me about 10 minutes but the second one only 5 minutes. I have not used them in snow or ice conditions yet but they look well made and ready to go. 8864

Have done a practice of putting on my cable chains in nice weather. At first it was a struggle but with the second tire it went smoother as I was used to how the assembly worked. Finished work was a very nice and snug fit. Really nice workmanship! These are going to be perfect for when the weather gets bad. Thanks! 591097

Great customer service. Product as described (tire chains); won't use until needed, but do not anticipate any problems. 313085

FYI when I went to use I discovered they were defective and would not work. I contacted your customer service and after several discussions I was able to return for a full refund. I was disappointed they did not work. Your customer service is very efficient and effective.

Good test fit on vehicle, but haven't had a chance to try on snow/ice. Manufacturer's directions are a little hard to follow. Recommend watching etrailer.com's online reviews of product, as they demonstrate installation techniques. 153141

Ask the Experts about this Glacier Tire Chains


  • Snow Cable Recommendation for a 2013 Honda Pilot
  • Since your owners manual states to use cables instead of chains I cannot safely recommend you attempt to use chains as that might cause clearance issues. I would recommend the Glacier V-Trac Cable Snow Tire Chains # PW2117V for your P235/60R18 wheels. This is a cable chain setup that has rubber adjusters that provide constant tension. Check out the review video I attached for these chains also.

  • Class S Compatible Tire Chains on 2012 Audi Q5 and 2012 Volvo XC60 with 235/60-18 Sized Tires
  • The Glacier Chains # PW2117V are confirmed to fit the 235/60-18 sized tires on both your vehicles. They are Class S compatible, meaning they have at least 37 mm of clearance between the top of the tire tread and the wheel well and at least 15 mm between the tire's sidewall and the vehicle. I can't recommend you go against your owner's manuals but these chains will fit the tire size.
