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


  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

Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains - 1 Pair - PW3029C

- PW3029C

I fit the cables to the tires and they're fine in that respect and they appear to be a good and stout. I did have trouble with the lever-lock. When the cables are tight the radius of the cables around the tire make it difficult to hook the lever-lock in the closed position due to the small gap between the "two hooks" on the lever-lock. With the cables matching the curve of the tire the cable does not fit easily between the two "hooks". It would seem just one "hook" would be sufficient as the tension is applied to the lever-lock in only one direction. I don't understand why there is a hook going the other way too. With a bit of deft filing I opened the gap enough to hook the lever-lock in position with much less difficulty. Without the alteration, working that lever-lock closed on a dark, freezing night would have been much less fun.

Thanks for sharing. Although, the warranty on the chains will not be effective once you have modified them and you can no longer return them, so I cannot recommend filing. At the 2:00 mark of this installation video it shows the installer having a bit of trouble putting the lever-lock onto the cable as you are saying.

Great service, ordering and getting them in. Haven't had to use them yet and hope I won't but tried them on the truck and the fit uus fine. The chains/cables looked made but the reason I am only giving 4 stars is the storage bags were bsrle able to fit the chains in from the factory. I just about had to peal the chains out and they are impossible to be rerolled and reinstated. I was able to fit them in empty sand bags. I just feel for that kind of money they could provide a better bag.

The cable chains fit my truck really well and are pretty simple to install. I purchased them for an upcoming trip up north for vacation. Not sure if I'll need them but don't want to be without them if I do. I'll prolly be giving 5 stars after I use them. The buying process and customer service and communication are great also.

Haven't worn them in the snow yet. But tried one on for size in the driveway. Looked like they may be too tight in circumference to use on my P275/60 R20 original equipment tires/wheels

These are very easy to install and etrailer's customer service and follow up is excellent.

Great value and much more reasonable than Tire store prices. Easy to install (easier not to have to need them but safer to have when necessary). Super service from etrailer people.

  • Snow Chains Recommend for 2021 Ford F-350 With LT275/65R20 Tires
    Many of the manufactures say that tire chains are not recommended, but as you said sometimes they are required or needed. That being said, we have a couple tire chains that will work with the LT275/65R20 on your 2021 Ford F-350. If you're wanting a ladder pattern chains that are a pretty aggressive get these all square snow tire chains # PWE3231SC. These can only be used on the road and not off-road. A simpler less aggressive chain option you have is the Titan alloy chains # TC2536. These...

  • Recommended Tire Chains for 275/60-20 Tires on 2020 GMC Sierra 1500
    Your owner's manual states that chains shouldn't be used with your given tire size due to the limited amount of clearance between the inside of the tire and the brake/suspension components. If you choose to use chains anyway due to local regulations where you can't use given roads without chains in place, I'd recommend going with Titan # TC751DC cable chains, due to the fact that they offer the most inside clearance (at least 15mm) of any chain options we offer for your tire size.

  • Tire Chains For A 275/60-20 Tire On A 2018 Ram 1500
    The Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains - 1 Pair Item # PW3029C are designed for the 275/60-20 tires. The brake line may seem close but they are designed that way. Once the chain is on and snugged to the tire it doesn't move around so it shouldn't make contact with the brake line. If you are concerned it is too close you can try the Titan Chain Alloy Snow Tire Chains - Diamond Pattern - Square Link - 1 Pair Item # TC2533 which I would recommend over the ladder pattern anyway.

  • Recommended Snow Tire Chains for 275/70R18 Tires on 2019 Ram 1500 Rebel
    For your 275/70R18 tires, I recommend the Titan Chain Alloy Snow Tire Chains - Diamond Pattern - Square Link - 1 Pair # TC2533. This is great quality chain that has built in adjusters. If you are concerned about internal clearances then you may want to consider a Class S chain like the Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains - 1 Pair # PW3029C. These cable style chains are best used with a tensioning device like the Glacier Multi-Arm Rubber Adjusters # PW105.

    I've linked to our selection of chains that are a fit for 275/70-18 tires.

As a first step, consult your owner's manual to see if your vehicle manufacturer has any specific advice or prohibitions regarding tire chain...

  • What Does Class S Mean on a Tire Chain
    When tire chains are Class S compatible, like the Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains # PW3029C that you referenced, it means that they are specialized for limited-clearance applications. Sometimes traditional tire chains would be too large for certain vehicles and could cause damage to spring clips, fenders, braces, splash pans, fuel lines, brake lines, or brake controls. If you check your owner's manual it will specify if you need to use Class S chains or not.

  • Recommended Tire Chains for 2016 Chevy Suburban
    Yes. The P at the front of your 275/55R20 tire size notation just means that they're tires for a passenger car and not a LT (light truck) or ST (special trailer), so they are the same sized tires. The reason they do not recommend using tire chains on your vehicle is the limited clearance in the wheel wells of your vehicle could create a situation where if a chain breaks, it can cause a great deal of damage to the suspension or braking components that are stored there. If you wanted to...

  • Snow Chain Recommendation for Fitting Tire Size 275/60-20 on 2011 Ram 1500
    We had the chance to install the Glacier Cable Snow Chains part # PW3029C on a similar Ram 1500 with your tire size and we found that the chains actually don't drape down far enough to touch the rims so rim protection wasn't necessary. The same was true of the larger chains # TC2828CAM with the V-bar that aren't low profile but provide more traction. Check out the install video and picture I attached to see what I mean.

    I checked the online copy of the owner's manual for the 2008 Ford F350, and saw that Ford only recommends using Class S chains on your vehicle. A Class S chain will add 15 mm or less height or width to the inside of the tire. Typically, a vehicle manufacturer will recommend Class S chains only when there is a risk of thicker, heavier chains damaging something to the inside of the tires, like steering, braking or suspension components.

This is standard across nearly all of the tire cables/chains we offer. Please note that in order to keep the cables seated correctly the use of rubber adjusters part # PW105 for 15" wheels to 18" wheels or part # PW103 for 18-1/2" wheels to 24-1/2" wheels is recommended.

    You are correct in that you only need to install the tire cables on the outer two rearmost tires on your motorhome. For this, the only option we have is the Glacier V-Trac Cable Snow Tire Chains part # PW2114V but they are an excellent choice at that.

    Tire chains should be used on the main drive wheels of a vehicle which on a truck is almost always the rear wheels. Adding chains to the front will help with traction and braking but is not 100 percent necessary. With that said you would need to run the plan by someone at Nissan or a tech at a Nissan dealer because they would be the only ones that could override the owner's manual. For 275/70R18 tires I recommend the Glacier V-Trac Cable Snow Tire Chains - 1 Pair # PW2114V. The issue...
