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. .

These chains are good quality and easy to install. I expect to deal with more icy road conditions than deep snow, and I think they ride smother and will cause less wear on my tires than the old-style heavy chains. 464557

Interesting use of physics. Easily installed, well presented in advertisement. Delightful sales person. They look very substantial and follow exactly what I was looking for. I saw a set last winter and now they are mine. I bought a set for the front so I will have all drive. I live in mid forest, forest service road access. A good point to point out is the fotos on the instructions are very poor difficult to see detail. I scanned them and enlarged to no avail. However, I was saved by the web pages which had great fotoss and made comprehension a beautiful thing. thanks j 235765

Comments
Remember to stay under 30 MPH, or what is specified in the instructions, with tire chains and they should not be driven on exposed concrete or pavement. They must only be used on snow or ice covered roads.

Such a great place to buy chains and hitches for your car. The service is amazing and my products were promptly handled with incredible speed.

Review from a similar Glacier Cable in Tire Chains


First, I'll note that I rated the product as "Excellent" based on the visual quality of the cable chains as well as the east of installation. I haven't driven on them yet so I will reserve my final opinion. I ordered express delivery and received the shipment yesterday as expected. I read the installation instructions last night and fitted the chains today. I put both on in 10 minutes and could probably have saved a bit of time because I was trying to get the hooks exactly the same (inside and out) but could not make it work. So, I settled for 2 in - 3 out on one tire and 3 in - 2 out on the other. I also bought tension rings but I did not install them today. So, with tension ring installation, say 15 minutes maximum to install chains on two front tires. 721832

I'm prepared again. I've used these chains on my last car, 2007 Ford Fusion. Everyone at work was laughing at me when I put on the chains. (The snow was light in the morning). But later on, the snow turned heavy in the afternoon. The snowplow have not arrived yet. And many cars could not leave the parking lot. Now, it was my turn to laugh. Thank you very much. This product is the best. I highly recommend to purchase the tensioner with the chains. You would be sorry if you don't. 468216

Review from a similar Glacier Cable in Tire Chains


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

  • Low-Profile S-Class Tire Chains for 2006 Ford F-150 with 265/60-18 Tires
    Auto makers often discourage use of tire chains because of potential interference with components in the braking system or other parts within the wheel wells. At the same time many states/regions require use of chains, or at least having a set in the vehicle, or you could receive a summons or be barred access to certain roads. One of my fellow Experts gave this situation the affectionate term "Tire Chain Paradox". The bottom line is that the auto maker cannot force you to brake the...

    We have some low-profile Class S rated chains and cables available for your 2014 Jeep Wrangler with 255/75-17 tires. For regular chains I recommend Titan chains # TC2326.

  • Pewag Cable Snow Tire Chains for 275/55-20 Tires
    According to Pewag, the # PW3027C chains you referenced would not be a fit for your 275/55-20 tires, as they would be too small to fit that diameter tire. For your 20 inch wheels, there is a similar style cable # PW3029C that is comparable with your tire size. In addition to the chains, the # PW99 rubber adjusters are recommended. I have linked you to some tire chain FAQ articles that you might find helpful.

    Snow chains are typically installed on the drive wheels, which in the case of your F-150 would be the rear wheels. On a four wheel drive vehicle, they can be installed on all four wheels if desired. Since it sounds as if you are wanting the chains specifically for this trip, and since they might not see frequent use any time soon thereafter, I would suggest a basic set of chains like the Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains, part # PW2028C.

    If your owners manual specifies tire chains only on the rear of your 2012 Chevrolet Suburban, then I would also recommend to use tire chains only in the rear. Sometimes the reason the manufacturer does not recommend tire chains on a vehicle is because of clearance, but it also could be for other reasons. Both of the snow tire chains and snow tire cables will work great in snow conditions. The difference is the snow chains will give you better grip in more ice conditions because the chain...

The manual says not to use chains/cables on the front tires because of interference with the suspension. It also says that you will need to use Class S rated cables, not chains. The maximum speed with cables on is 30 miles per hour. And you can only use them on the following tire sizes: 245/70-17, 265/70-17, or 265/60-18. If you have 245/70-17 tires you can use cables...

  • Will the Same Cable Tire Chains Fit 275/55-20 and 255/75-17 Tires
    The 2 tire sizes are roughly the same diameter but there is a bit more to it than just that. The comparable chains that fit the 255/75-17 tires have a shorter side chain. Otherwise they are nearly identical. So you could potentially use # PW2028C if you want but you might not be able to get them tight enough. For the best fit I recommend # PW3027C.

    On a 4WD vehicle, having chains on all 4 wheels is not a requirement. If you will only be using chains on two wheels, you would typically have the chains on the back wheels although for best performance having chains on all 4 wheels would be best. If the chains will sit in the cargo area of the vehicle, and the chances of them actually being used is pretty slim, then a set of the cable chains like # PW3027C for your F150 or # PW1030 for your Voyager would work fine.

    Normally when an owners manual of a Ford F-150 does not recommend to use snow chains on certain tire sizes it is because of the larger tire sizes. When chains are installed on the larger tire sizes it could cause the snow chains to interfere with parts on the vehicle.

  • Slipping Chains and No Traction when Using Snow Tire Chains on a Ford F-150
    Your truck is a rear wheel drive vehicle and since you made it up without the chains on I do not think it was the weight, or lack of weight, in the back. There is a speed limitation with chains. Basically you will want to go about 25 miles per hour. Certain chains are not good in ice so depending on the chain type and the nature of the accumulation on the road, that could be the problem. If you were using cables like # PW3027C they are not good in ice at all. Also if the chains are...

  • Tire Chain Recommendation for 2004 Ford F-150 with 265-75-17 Tires
    If you think you will use the chains at all then I would recommend the Thule Chains part # TH2004705265 even though they are somewhat expensive. These will give you the best traction, are S compatible, and will install easily. If price really is what you are most worried about then cables like the part # PW3027C would be your best option. These are best for occasional use and will get the job done.

  • Recommended Tire Chains for 2001 Ford F-150 with 265/70R17 Size Tires
    I have a few options of tire chains for your 2001 Ford F-150 with the 265/70R17 size tires. A good economy option for tire chains on your F-150 are the Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains # PW3027C. These chains feature low-carbon steel spring rollers wrapped around sturdy wire cross cables. They also have a low profile which makes the ride a lot more smooth. Another option for snow chains for your Ford is the Konig Self-Tensioning Snow Tire Chains # TH01594267. I recommend using these...

  • Tire Chain Recommendation for 2006 Ford Expedition
    Assuming that your Expedition uses 265/70-17 tires, the owner's manual says you can uses traction devices, but they recommend using tire cables like part # PW3027C, not chains. Ford recommends using cables on the rear wheels only. I'd also recommend a set of rubber adjusters, part # PW105. The adjusters will keep the cables tight to your tires, providing constant tension. I'll link you to our Snow Chain FAQ article. In addition to all kinds of snow chain information, a state-by-state...

  • Will the Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains # PW3029C Fit on a 2011 Chevrolet Suburban 2WD
    It is best to choose tire chains based on the size of the tires on your 2011 Chevrolet Suburban. It looks like there are two factory tire sizes for the Chevrolet Suburban. If the tires on your Suburban are size 275/55-20, then the Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains, # PW3029C, will work for you. If your tire size is 265/70-17, then you will want part # PW3027C. The cable chains come in a set of 2 chains. If you only plan on purchasing one set of cable chains, then I recommend installing...

  • Snow Chain Recommendation for a 2009 Ford F-150 with 235/75R17 Tires
    First thing you need to do is check the owners manual of your 2009 Ford F-150 to determine if there are any restrictions on snow chain usage. If you are good to go I would recommend the Titan Snow Chains # TC2323. These are easy to install, will provide great traction and are priced great as well. I attached a review video for you to check out as well. The # PW3027C that you referenced aren't confirmed to fit your tire size so I would not recommend them for you.

  • Tire Chain Recommendation for a 2001 Chevy Camaro
    As an owner of a similar F-body as your 2001 Chevy Camaro I can say that what helps me the most in the snow is a set of snow tires. Since Chevy doesn't recommend the use of snow chains on your car I can't really recommend you do so. That being said, if you were to go with a set of chains on your vehicle I would recommend a diamond pattern chains as they do a much better job than the ladder style cables and chains for side to side traction. Cables don't provide nearly the same amount...
