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)

Review from a similar V-Bar Link with Cam in Tire Chains


These are very good. Large spikes and all the welds on the chains look very good. They seem a bit large for my size tire[P255/70R16, but I just needed to tie them down a bit more. I would buy again. These performed well in Washington just a week ago. 330416

Review from a similar V-Bar Link with Cam in Tire Chains


They went on fairly easily, seemed strong and seemed secure. The problem was that the first time that we needed them, two of the chains came off and we lost one of them. My husband and I haven't used chains before... so maybe it was user error (hence the 3 star review instead of a 2 star), but we put them on according to the instructions... so either the instructions are poorly written or the product wasn't as good as it should have been. 313220

I have not used the product yet so keep that in mind. The product was shipped quickly. Upon inspection I would imagine the v-bars probably won't stay on the cross chains for very long by looking at the welds. Also, this product is made in China. Had I known this I wouldn't have made the purchase. There are still American made snow chains that can be purchased on line. Hopefully they'll make it at least one season. 154115

They fit. They haven't been tested because there has not been the need in the since purchasing...that's why only three stars. 702913

Review from a similar V-Bar Link with Cam in Tire Chains


I just received my tire chains today and have not yet tried them. I can't say enough how easy etrailer made them to order. Just go by vehicle and they show you the different chains that fit. I went to tire chain sites and they were difficult to choose the tire size and types. I bough these for my new Colorado in case I need them to get up my very steep driveway to my cabin if there is a lot of snow. I'm very sure these chains well help. 330476


Comments
Dennis, thanks so much for your review and your business. While we have our chains sorted by typical year, make, and model sizes, you should be sure to check the tire sizes listed at the bottom of each product page to ensure the chains will fit your tires, rather than the year, make, and model of your vehicle. I hope this helps!

Review from a similar V-Bar Link with Cam in Tire Chains


I purchased these chains for several trips to Alaska. I haul several loads a year to Alaska. Each time I’ve gone I’ve never needed them until I get to my property. After hooking them up to get into the driveway several of the cross chains broke on the first use. 459744

The first set of chains we ordered did not arrive. They got lost during the holiday mail shuffle. I spoke to a representative who was very kind, knowledgeable and helpful. After trying to track the package in vain, they shipped us a new set free of charge. We are very pleased with the level of service and will give our repeat business. 467780

The learning curve for applying the tire chain was short, and in the end, the process took about 5 minutes. (It helped to drive the tire on to a brick first.) The galvanized links appear sturdy, as do the cams, and the chains seem tight enough. Intended use is road travel in snow/ice - more on that later, perhaps. 106072

Just put them on my truck. OMG! Talk about getting out of a sticky situation. We have a 27' camper and couldn't get it thru the yard. I put the glacier chains on and the truck moved with ease. I would recommend these chain and this company ETrailer. I've ordered several times with confidence. Thank you Etrailer! 582817

Review from a similar V-Bar Link with Cam in Tire Chains


I purchased these for my husband and will have to do my review in 2 parts. My husband has not had time to open the box the chains arrived in. I will address the service provided by etrailer.com today. I ordered the chains rather late in the evening and to my delight, I received notification that they had shipped my order that night. Inadvertently my unit number was left off of the order (my error) and again, late at night, I emailed etrailer and the next morning I awoke to a message that the problem was taken care of and I should get the order in a day or two. They were delivered that day. I ordered them 1/7/15 on 1/13/15 they were delivered. It took "longer" because of my error. I think I received superior customer service and still think that the time it took for the delivery (free) was excellent. Once my husband actually opens the box I will add to the review about the product. Customer service like this needs to be applauded immediately. 168935

It is not a good sign when you place your order and get an email that the item is no longer in stock. George J at eTrailer immediately emailed me, found what I was looking for and sent it with expedited shipping. Clearly customer service is important to them, which means that we, as the customer, are important. A concept lost on many businesses today. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! 331444

The snow chains were for a trip to Colorado, where I may need them. I checked the fit and they worked great. Although I did not need them but it was good to have them. In Texas I don't think I will need them so unused I will keep them. 358342

Had trouble getting out to get wood, a good amount of snow and ice underneath. Put on the chains and the old truck walked right through. We'll see how they hold up but I am very satisfied. 341311

This product was amazing it worked very well . They are easy to install and they are easy to remove. they make plowing my driveway so much easier because I have a couple of low spots that fill with water and turn to ice and with these chains I have not gotten stuck would highly recommend them to anybody they also work well going down tote roads when I'm ice fishing. 5 Stars 604705

Review from a similar V-Bar Link with Cam in Tire Chains


these are nice heavy chains. however, i felt the workmanship was a bit under-par. the welds, especially on the twist links which form the cross-members were rough and when you add the galvinizing to that, they are difficult to lay out flat prior to installation. the rough welds hang-up and you have have to do some "creative twisting" to get all the links into proper position. this problem was only in a few places. but, i can foresee some frustration if i have to find those kinks in the snow and with numb fingers. i discovered the problem when i laid the chains out on my garage floor as i was inspecting the chains the day i received them. this is May and so i can't say how they will perform this coming winter. i expect they will do well, but chains, by nature, are a tangled mess when you first pull them out. it should not have to be an extra struggle do to rough surfaces. 129943

He was unable to make the trip last season so i have no feedback.im am writing to say, thumbs-up to etrailer for providing follow-up reviews.

Review from a similar V-Bar Link with Cam in Tire Chains


I was purchasing some chains for use on Colorado Forest Roads for an upcoming mid-november elk hunt. I called in and the woman on the phone was very helpful, and they arrive in less than 48 hours. I am a little bit bummed that on the side of the paper thin cotton-ish sack these came in it says Made in China, but nowhere on the site does it say that these are imported. I am aware that Glacier is a product of Pewag, but did not realize that it was a China made version. The mention of Pewag in the description of these chains should be followed up by either "Imported", "Made in China", or some other description making it clear on where these were made. I laid them out at home and didn't see any defects, so visual quality seems fine. I hope they hold up, and if we end up using them I will be sure to follow up. 577661

Review from a similar V-Bar Link with Cam in Tire Chains


Recently we got 12-14 inches of snow here in N.C. and put these chains on 1 day ahead of the snow. Installation was very simple as especially since etrailer.com has the accompanying instruction video which was great. I couldn't believe how easy it was. Then came the driving. We had ice first for a few hours and then the heavy snow. I had a 14 mile round trip to make and here's what stopped me....NOTHING! My truck drove on the snow and ice like a snow plow, never skidding, never sliding, and I was traveling about the recommended 30-35 mph., and even the steep country road hills made NO difference. My truck went up inclines and curves as if I was driving on dry pavement. The "V" bars on each link made all the difference, and I will never buy "regular" chains again. Hats off to Glacier chains for ruggedly, well built chains that not only hold up and work well, but work better than I ever expected. Kirk 594860

Had a very hard time finding quality tire chains online, that would arrive in time for our move to Alaska. Our chains were delivered on time yesterday and far exceed expectations for the price! Would use your company again and would recommend to friends and family in an instant! Thanks for great service and a great product! 25111

Review from a similar V-Bar Link with Cam in Tire Chains


These are a complete waste of money. Bought them last year and only used them once, they seemed to work fine. I didn’t need them for the rest of the winter. This year, on their 3rd use the cam tightener tool broke, really cheap metal. On their 4th use (needing a screwdriver and wrench to tighten the cams) they completely fell apart. 3 cross links broke on one chain, plus the outside latch fell off. Other chain seems fine which I don’t understand. Bottom line is after 4 uses totaling less than 30 miles, these chains are toast and I feel like an idiot for having purchased them... 585915

The chains worked better than expected. A little difficult to get them properly fitted in the field but they did what they were designed to do. The only drawback to the experience was I ordered & paid for next day shipping but received them 3 business days later. Would still recommend this product and company. 177915

  • Recommended V-Bar Tire Snow Chains for Jeep with 31x1050R15LT Tires
    I have just what you're looking for, but the Glacier V-Bar Snow Chains # PWH2816SC are going to be a bit too small for your Jeep TJ with 31 x 10.5 x 15 tires.
