Class S Designation

SAE Class S tire chains are designed for use on vehicles with restricted wheel-well clearance. Certain newer cars, vans and small trucks, especially those with large, aftermarket tires, may require Class S chains.

SAE Class S Clearance Diagram

These chains will fit your tires provided there is both:

  • A - a minimum of 1.46" (37 mm) between the top of the tire tread and the wheel well
  • B - at least 0.59" (15 mm) between the tire's sidewall and the vehicle

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

Video Transcript for Glacier Square-Link Snow Tire Chains Review - 2017 Subaru Outback Wagon

Today on our 2017 Subaru Outback wagon we're gonna be test-fitting the Glacier square link snow tire chains, part number PWPLC1142. These 30 case-hardened steel chains come with square links and a ladder pattern design which will give you better grip on both snowy and icy roads. These can be used with both rear and front wheel drive cars and are designed for highway use, not off road applications. These are SAE class S chains which means they work well with vehicles with limited wheel well clearance. And once you're finished using them, they do come with a convenient storage case to have them ready for next time. Today we're working with tire size 225 65 17. Now if these chains don't fit for your particular tires, double check the size, then go to our website and find the proper fitting.

Before we put the chains onto the tire, we went ahead and laid them out on the ground as you can see here just to make sure there's no kinks in the lines. Now another thing to know is that installing tire chains can be particularly tough on your hands so we do recommend that you wear a pair of gloves while you do this. Next we'll take our chains and drape them over our tire, keeping it as even as possible on both sides. With the chains draped over on this side, now we'll go behind the tire and make our connections there. Now to make it easier to get to our chains, we're gonna go ahead and turn our wheel all the way to the right to be able to make our connections behind the tire. We'll make our connections.

Looks like the first link we're gonna get to is on the one side, now we'll straighten out our tire to make our connections on the outside of the tire. Next to take the end with our links, put it around our hook here, tension it down and catch it with this link on the other side. While these don't come with the tire chains, they do recommend the use of these rubber tensioners and today we're using part number PW105. You'll take them and hook them around like so, making sure the ends of the hook are facing away from the tire. We'll just make our connections around the tire. And after these are installed, you want to drive a short distance to make sure the tensioning system is working properly, or to make any adjustments as necessary.

And there you have it for the Glacier square link snow tire chains, part number PWPLC1142 on our 2017 Subaru Outback wagon.

Order was delivered on schedule and in great shape. All items fit perfectly on our vehicle. The window cover will be so handy when the snow comes and no more scraping ice to get off to work. When the order was started, I forgot the tensioners that were needed with the snow chains. One phone call was all that I needed, the Gentleman on the phone took care of it and everything showed up at the same time. The service was polite, calm and prompt. Thank you and we will do more business in the future with Etrailer on line service. 451933

I did receive the chains yesterday. We put them on and took a spin around the unplowed yard. They fit and work great! We were pushing snow with the front bumper, and never got stuck. When I went to take them off however, I noticed that the cam lock Fastener on the outside was dangling and loose. It looks like the link that connects to the side chain opened up. I found a link that will work, and I plan on welding it where it connects tonight. Is there any way you can have supplier do this at factory? It would make a much stronger tire chain. 606859

I haven't needed to use these chains yet but I have tested them on our wheels and I have used chains before. I have high confidence that when I do use them, they will be great. 343789

I havent needed them yet. Taken them on several ski trips but roads have been clear.I did test install them as the instructions advise and discovered one clip link was not opened enough. My household tools were not strong enough to open it but the hotels maintenance person was able to open it in a vice. If I had not tested all 4 chains I would have been stuck at the roadside. Im surprised I didnt mention that in my review! I put it down to a rare manufacturing glitch and thanked my lucky stars that I found it.

Jeep Compass

The product itself has no issues, although i wish the carrying case was a little more substantial. My issue is that Etrailer said these chains are compatible for my vehicle and after installing and using them I learned that they are indeed not compatible as my Jeep Compass requires something designed for low clearance. It seems like this should come up when I searched specifically for chains for my vehicle. As a consumer I trusted that Etrailer was only showing me results of chains I could actually use without damaging my vehicle 600894

I used a ground delivery but it came significantly faster together with chains. I put it on the wheel. The plastic box with chains and fits to space on the side of the spare wheel in 2014 Toyota. That's nice benefit. 232146

- PWPLC1142

It was some time after receiving the chains that I had an opportunity to try them on. I waited until a nice day then followed the directions on my right front wheel (on my driveway). It took about 10 minutes. The next time I really used them was February in a large snowstorm in the mountains. I had to lay down and dig snow away from the wheels to get the chains attached. It took about 45 minutes for both. I had a bit of trouble using the chain tighteners because my fingers got cold. However, from then on the chains worked great. If I hadn't had them, my weekend would have been terrible. 757507

Bought these to on my 2WD, 2014 Mazda CX-5. These worked great! we enjoyed cashing in on some food deliveries during a heavy snow day in KC where over 10" fell. We have used them several times since and find them easy to install and provide good traction. 736815

Took the family to Mammoth this past weekend. This El Nino brought awesome levels of snow to the Sierra Nevada mountains. Unfortunately for the purpose of this product review, road conditions did not call for the mandatory use of tire chains. However, I am pleased to say that etrailer did provide me with two options to chose from (cables and chains), both which meet Subaru's recommendations in terms of clearance between tire and strut. I wanted to be prepared, and avoid being turned around by CHP, in the event that road conditions had changed to R2 or R3. Thank you etrailer for the prompt shipping and reasonable pricing! 608290

I was having a hard time finding chains for my oversized BMW tires (thanks BMW!). They were not stocked by any of the big retailers, nor could those retailers commit to having them delivered in a timely manner. Fortunately, I found etrailer.com. I talked to Sheila, who couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. I got the chains at a reasonable price, delivered just when I needed them. 603102

Well, I put on on a tire & there is a little clearance hope I don't break a cross chain. The Chains are very good quality The cross chains are very good material should last a good while. The service of shipping is 2nd to none. The chain adjusters are the best I've ever seen they are strong to keep chains pulled tight. I haven't driven with them yet but they should sure do the job with ease. I'm very well satisfied with what I see & thank you for making so many good products available 591079

  • Best Snow Tire Chains for a 2018 Ram ProMaster 2500 with 225/75-16 Tires
    I have great news for you. The owner's manual for your ProMaster is very lenient in regards to tire chain use on your vehicle which means you have an excellent selection to choose from. The only restrictions are that you install them on the front two tires and they are a non-cam type. The Glacier Alloy Square-Link Snow Tire Chains part # PWPLC1142 that you were looking at are a good option for you but an even better one would be the Titan Chain Alloy Snow Tire Chains part # TC2519....

    From my research your 2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek has 225/55-17 size tires from the factory. If you have a different tire size let me know. I also checked out your owner's manual and it recommends not using tire chains unless you're required to. In the event you need to the manual states to use Class S chains and to install them on the front wheels. Since you're not planning to use them long term (or at all if you don't have to) I recommend going with basic ladder style chains, like...

  • Should Tire Chains be Put on Both Wheels or Just Outer Wheels on a Dually Axle
    You can install tire chains on either both tires or just the outer tire on a dually set of tires (per side). Having chains on both will provide the best traction but it is a little more difficult to install them. The distance of the trip isn't as important as the road conditions and the type of terrain. In heavy snow or ice or steep grades, I would put chains on all the tires of a dually axle. If you can tell me the tire size I can determine which chains will fit. I have included a link...

You may also be interested in purchasing a Glacier Rubber Adjusters # PW100 to make it easier to adjust your vehicle snow chains.

  • Speed Limits for Snow Tire Chains
    With the Pewag, Glacier, and Thule chains, I recommend a maximum speed of 30 to 35 miles per hour. And with some chains, the maximum speed is 40 miles per hour. Check your vehicle owners manual for specific information on tire chain use. It may list a different speed and if it is lower than the max speed for the chains, you must go by the lower speed rating. I also attached an FAQ on snow chains plus an install video for you to check out to the right.

  • Should I Use Snow Chains when I am Plowing Snow
    For optimum traction, you will want to have chains on all four tires of your truck when you are plowing. Having chains on one axle would help, but would not be as beneficial. However, you should note that if you are using chains there is a chance you will damage the road beneath you as the chains dig through the snow into the the pavement or concrete. If potentially damaging the road beneath you is not a concern, I would strongly recommend you use chains as you will get increased...

Class S refers to limited clearance tire chains that measure 15mm or less at the side walls and 37mm or less across the tread of the tire they are designed to fit.

This is clearance that you cannot exceed with chains. You will also need to check the owners manual...

  • Are Tire Chains Recommended for a Vehicle Being Flat Towed
