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)

Video Transcript for Glacier Twist Link Snow Tire Chains with Cam Tighteners Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Glacier Twisted Length Snow Tire Chain with cam tensioners. These are available in a wide variety of sizes to fit many different applications. Designed for highway use and not intended for off road applications, our tire chains do have a 30 mile an hour speed rating. As you can see, we've got a twisted length design. That gives us a raised edge on two points of our length to help get good traction for when we're taking off and stopping. They've constructed it using a low carbon steel, so we're not going to have to worry about a ton of corrosion. These chains have been designed for highway use.

They've got a rounded edge, it kind of smooths out our ride going down the road. Also, these chains are great for use on the rear axle or the front axle of front wheel drive and rear wheel drive vehicles. They've designed it in a ladder style. This is going to help us with taking off and stopping in a straight line so that this chain is going to go all the way across our tire. Now that we've gone over the features, let's show you how to get this installed. As you can see, we've spread it out here to check to make sure we have all the twists out and things like that, make sure we don't have any kinks.

Then we'll grab the side away from our tensioners. We just want to work this up and over our tire. We'll set this so that our front ladder rung or the first cross chain will sit there in front of the vehicle. Now it's time to roll it forward and allow those lengths to go underneath our wheel there. As you can see, we've got it up to about our third or fourth spot here. We'll now take the tag end, we're going to connect it on one of the six lengths there.

Let's do the fourth one, what I like to do is let those hang down so we're getting a direct connect onto our length. As you can see, we do have three extras hanging over there on the back side. We'll bring it around to the front. We've got a plus or a minus of one, so we have the option of using the third the fourth or the fifth length. I think the fourth is going to serve our purpose here. Bring that through, cam that over and there's a spare length that's hanging out here.

That's just going to go over and hold that into place for us. It's now time to start tightening our tensioners. We'll use our tensioning tools, place it in and rotate them around. As you can see, that's going to draw in some of the slack we've got and get each of our lengths of chains nice and tight. Now that we've got all of our cams tight, you'll see our chain's tightened up. We still have three excess lengths hanging off of each side of our chain here. One option would be to try to tuck that in behind our chain, to where it's not going to be flipping around. The other option would just be to cut it right off there, remove it completely. That way you won't have to worry about it slipping out as you're heading down the road. As with any manually adjusted chain, we do recommend the use of a chain tensioner. The one I've got here today is a really neat one from Glacier, the part number on it is PW105. It's got six lengths on it, as you can see, you're just going to connect those kind of evenly around our tire. That one's not so even. Kind of connect those evenly around, that's going to give us that extra little bit of force that we need to really hold our chains in place. Now that we've seen how the chain installs and how it's going to fit onto our vehicle, let's take a look and see how it performs with some footage we have of it in action. That will complete today's look at the Glacier Twist Length Snow Tire Chains with cam tighteners. .

I ordered a pair of traditional tire chains for my truck with monster snows being the norm these days I didnt want to take any chances. I was very pleased with the heavy duty construction, pretty easy to slap on and tighten. A lot beefier than I expected, strong construction! I was also very pleased with the fast delivery even though I chose the cheepest slow boat to china method, ordered late thursday night, on my back porch monday am (two business days!) Bravo to etrailer! You have a new loyal customer! Thank you, Andy 27794

The customer service for e-trailer was excellent. I received a personal email regarding the shipping schedule that had to be changed. Product arrived as promised. Weather conditions have not warranted my need of tire chains yet but the chains are what I expected. Good service, good ordering experience. I will order from etrailer again. 154618
