Note: To determine whether you can use snow chains on your vehicle, or if chains might affect your ABS/ESP functionality, consult your owner's manual.

These chains are great for giving you a little extra traction in the snow. But if you live somewhere where you experience heavy snow often, you'll definitely want something more heavy duty than cables. Because these cable chains are lightweight and don't take up a lot of storage space, they are also perfect for keeping in your trunk if you occasionally travel through areas that require you to have chains on hand.

Class S Designation

SAE Class S tire chains are designed for use on passenger vehicles with restricted wheel-well clearance. Most newer cars, vans, and small trucks - especially those with large aftermarket tires - will require Class S chains. If you're unsure about the class of your vehicle, consult your vehicle's owner's manual.

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

Confirming Your Fit

If you know your tire size, you may think you won't need to test fit your new cable chains. But there are a lot of variables that can affect whether chains will fit your specific tires, including your tire type, the amount of pressure in the tire, the amount of tread wear, and the tire manufacturer.

We recommend that you order chains as early in the season as possible to give yourself plenty of time to test fit the chains and reorder if needed. This way, you won't be stuck out in the cold later with snow cables that don't fit.

You can test fit these chains in your garage or driveway, but you'll want to wait until there's snow on the ground to actually drive with them. Likewise, if you're out in the snow and come across bare pavement, you'll want to pull over and remove the chains. Even these low-profile cables can cause damage to the bare pavement, your garage floor, or your vehicle if they break from the wear of riding on a harsh surface.

Installing Cable Chains

Installing cable chains is easy.

Lay chains on the ground to get all the tangles out

1. Lay out the chains on the ground to make sure there are no twists or kinks in the cables.

Cross cable connections have a smooth side that goes against the tire

2. Where each cross cable attaches, you'll notice there is a smooth side and one with an edge. Make sure the smooth side faces in to sit against your tire's sidewall as you drape the cables over your tire.

Feed the cable through the connection loop

3. On the front of the tire, feed the cable through the connection loop until it's tight, then feed the extra cable through the second loop to keep it from flapping as you drive. Repeat this on the backside of the tire.

Optional rubber adjusters ensure a tight fit

Rubber adjusters (sold separately) are recommended to help ensure a tight fit. Connect these to the front side of the cable in a star pattern. Make sure the hooks face away from your tire so your wheels don't get scratched.

Quick Tips:

  • Lengthen the life of snow chains by drying them after each use before you store them.
  • Check out our installation kit with safety lights and a kneeling pad (PO34FRK) to make things a little easier when you're installing cables out in the snow.

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 Tire Chains - Ladder Pattern - Roller Links - Manual Tensioning - 1 Pair - PW1038

Average Customer Rating:  4.7 out of 5 stars   (975 Customer Reviews)

These low-profile, lightweight cable chains are great for driving in light snow. Perfect for those trips where you need chains "just in case." Designed to fit passenger vehicles with tight clearance around the wheels.

2016 Subaru Forester

Good news. The order arrived on the 6th day. To be sure they fit I did a test installation. I installed the Glacier PW1038 snow cable/chains on our 2016 Subaru Forester (225 -60R-17). The chains fit perfectly and on the 2nd notch. (See attached pix).

nice fit: away from the rim and other body parts. The PW105s also helped greatly to snug the package.

2015 Subaru Forester

The chains arrived sooner than expected and were easy to install on my 2015 Subaru Forester. Because of the clearance between tire and wheelwell this chain was recommended. The video,which shows them being installed on a 2015 Subaru Foresters rear wheels,contradicts the owners manual which tells you to install them on the front wheels. The price was very reasonable. The multi arm adjusters I feel are a necessity and should be included with the chains at an additional cost. Finally, I have not tried them out yet but am confident they will give me additional traction in snow. erailer is a very reputable company and I highly recommend them.

2020 Subaru Crosstrek

This was delivered right away and right on time. This product was easy to find on their page, meaning the sizing. Greta company and ease.

2019 Toyota Camry

Although I have not yet had to put on these cable chains, the ordering and delivery process were excellent. Knowing when your order is coming for planning purposes is essential, and etrailer came through. I've laid the cables out on the ground, and they are exactly what I expected. My wish is to never have to use them, but I've had to purchase cables for rental vehicles three times in my past, because of unpredictable weather. At least I have this concern covered for my Utah car.

Toyota Sienna

So far, everything has been great. The website was easy, well set up and full of options for my Sienna AWD. Very competitive pricing. I had to buy 4 and the rubber multi-arm adjusters are beefy! We are planning a road trip for spring breaker and will headed over several passes and just want piece of mind with the young family. This has done that and for under $xx.xx!
Thank you

A year out and what a crazy one!!! With COVID, spring break trip never happen. I have used the chains one up at the local XC skiing road closure. There was a noticeable change in traction control and I have 3 season rubber.

I received my order quickly and will be teaching myself how to install these snow tire chains this evening when I get home. These are the same snow tire chains selling in our area but for a much better price. We are taking a trip up to the mountains this weekend and our area mountains have received hundreds of inches of snow. I wouldn't think of heading up without high quality chains for our car. Thanks so much for the fantastic turn around time I would definitely purchase items from this retailer in the future! Thank you etrailer!

Well, I believe they are still sitting in my garage. We took a trip to the snow last year and the highway required chains. At the last minute we decided to take my husbands truck rather than my passenger vehicle, so we never did have to use them. Hopefully someday, someone will need them and we will be able to use them :- I appreciate the follow up. I remember everything being great with this purchase and I would purchase from you again in the future.
Paula B - 01/26/2018


I will know later this year how great the chains are when and if we get snow. The last couple of years in California, we have been lacking in snow and rain.


I won't know until I use them but they look good and have convenient storage bags that I put the tensioners in also

2017 Subaru Forester

Per the Subaru technical manual, while tire chains are not recommended, if needed S style spring chains can be used on the front tires only (2017 Technical Manual, section 8-12). While I hope to never require them, I live in Washington State. When the roads are severe enough, chains can be mandatory. This is especially true for National Parks such as Hurricane Ridge where weather conditions can change rapidly.

After watching the etrailer video for installation of chains on a 2015 Forester, I purchased a set of PW1038 Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains and PW105 Multi Arm Truck Tire Chain Adjusters. I have test fit the chains with adjusters on my front tire and they appear to be a good fit. I turned the tires hard right and hard left and checked my clearances and found no interference with the fit. Unfortunately, there is no snow for me to do a test run at this time.

Please note the etrailer video test fits the chains on the rear tires and the Glacier instructions specify installation on the rear tires for all wheel drive vehicles. This information is inconsistant with the 2017 Subaru Forester Technical Manual for front tire installation only.

2014 Subaru Outback Wagon

Quality product. It fits. It got here right when they said it would. Perfect. I ordered the PW1038 low-profile S Chains for my 2014 Subaru Outback. They fit, using the 2nd from last locking link from the end. They do not rub the shock absorber. Great. etrailer gave an estimated delivery date, and they arrived exactly on that date. Tip: They ship using UPS, but then hand it off to USPS, meaning it arrived in my US Mail Box, not on the front porch. More secure. I doubt I will every have to use them in a snow-chain Level 3 condition (in which ALL vehicles, 4WD or not, have to chain up), but in CA, NV, and OR, you have to be able to show the police that you HAVE the chains in your vehicle, even though you are not using them on the tires. I recommend this solution for my fellow Subaru owners.


We got the item right on time to make it to our ski trip! They worked perfectly with our 2013 Subaru Outback. We had the chains on when there was only slushy on the ground, to the mountains where the snow was 3-feet deep and kept them on for the duration of the 3 days trip. They didn't budge at all! They stayed on the wheels and didn't break, while another mini van's snow chains from Walmart were falling apart on day 1! Highly recommend these!!


I visited Yosemite National Park in early November and was cautioned that I should have tire chains in my vehicle because of Caltrans and National Park requirements. The etrailer folks got me an inexpensive set that met the requirements and could work as intended in an emergency situation. Wayne was particularly patient and helpful. My order was quickly received and came with a nice storage bag, too. Their service is great and the web site is also very helpful about installing and using chains.


I purchased the PW1038 cable chains for a winter trip from our home in Texas to Yellowstone National Park. I was concerned that the road conditions we anticipated during our trip would dictate the use of traction devices or risk time lost waiting for improving road conditions.

As it turned out we did not need the devices. Therefore, I am unable to comment on how effective they were in providing any additional traction for our vehicle. However, since I never like to use something for the first time under less than ideal conditions, such as cold temperatures and blowing snow, I decided to not only fit test the devices but to also test my ability to install them in a minimal amount of time and therefore personal exposure to the elements.

I am happy to report that following a little struggle to fit the first one, I was able to quickly and efficiently install the second. After removing both, I reinstalled one to verify I had learned the process.

I am confident that had I encountered the need to use these traction devices I would have had no problem getting them on and off.

2013 Toyota Prius V

Cable Snow Tire chain PW1038

Supprised to receive my order so soon. Excellent Service,.

I tested putting the cable tire chain. I followed the instructions on installation and as expected I had to move the inside and outside liks several time to get the right tension. It was not a problem because I have done it many times before ( about 10 years ago). The true test is when I have to install it in the snow and drive with it on. I was concerned that this was not the right size because the tire size didn't show up on the carring bag tag. I double check on the web and verified PW1038 was the right size for my tire P215/50R17 90W. I think this is the right size.



I haven't used the tire chains yet, but I am very happy with the service. I phoned on December 2 and spoke with Patrick. He confirmed that the chains and rubber adjusters were in stock. Later that day I received confirmation the the items had been shipped. The order arrived in Sumas, WA, on Friday, December 6. Thank you for the fast and efficient service!

2013 Subaru Outback Wagon

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.

Subaru Forester

Bought these with the hope of never having to use them on our Forester but required to have for visits to National Parks during winter. They lived, unused, in the back of the car until major February snowstorm hit. We have a short but steep hill to traverse to get out to plowed roads. These chains did the trick. They were easy to put on and take off for the five minutes they were needed to get the car up or down the hill.

1989 Jeep Grand Wagoneer

I appreciate that you/your company does follow ups to purchases after a year. I think that is great. That being said, since ordering the tire cables/chains, it has not snowed enough to use them! I have saved this email and promise to review them once we actually get to use them. Thanks again!!


I purchased chains for a trip to Squaw. I didn't end up needing to use them this time. Customer service at etrailer was great! I emailed them to see if the chains could be mailed in time for my trip and they wrote back quickly and shipped them out fast. They even wrote a follow up email to let me know that the item had shipped and with extra info on the chains in case I needed it. I;m really impressed with the service and would definitely use this company again if I needed something.

2007 Acura TL

I needed some light chains for emergencies. These fit my Acura and were easy to install. The cables come in a small bag that keeps them compact. Be sure to get the chain adjusters. They are necessary to tighten the cables around the tires. The installation videos were very helpful. I have not used them yet, so I cannot report how well they might perform on the road.


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. I’ve now bought two trailer hitches and a set of chains for my car. The products and installation instructions were perfect. Thanks so much for wonderful products.

2007 Subaru Legacy

Good chains. They fit a 2007 Subaru Legacy B spec well.

2016 Kia Optima

Dry fitted these as soon as they arrived and they are very easy to fit. I can't give a review on how they work in snow, because everyone drives differently and they are snow chains. The most important consideration for me, was how easy they were to install and these were cake.

The tensioners were, well, very tense and it took some muscle to get all 6 hooks onto the wire. I recommend a good pair of gloves or an extra pair of hands to get these on.

GMC Safari

Always excellent customer service with My first set of cable chains arrived quickly and fit perfectly. Be sure to order the rubber adjusters. They are very convenient, worth every penny. This is my second set of cable chains, the first for a front wheel drive Venture, the 2nd for an AWD Safari. Even though it's AWD, the cable chains on the rear really improve traction. Be sure to always follow the manufacturer's "speed limits" when using this product to prevent catastrophic failure! Read all info supplied and enjoy your enhanced mobility!

Subaru XV Crosstrek

Purchased Glacier cable chains for my new Subaru Crosstrek. Etrailer staff were knowledgeable, friendly and efficient. Delivery was fast. The chains are easy to put on. Just need some snow to try them out!

  • Snow Tire Chain Recommendation for 2012 Subaru Outback 2.5i
    The stock tire size of your 2012 Subaru Outback Wagon would be P215/70R16 which for a one-time use, mainly to get through California check points, we recommend using tire cables like the Glacier part # PW1038 which is a confirmed fit for your tire size and would require a minimal amount of clearance so they are a great option. We had a chance to install these on a similar 2012 Outback like yours and found they fit and worked well. Check out the install video link I attached to this page...

  • How Fast Can Vehicle go With Snow Chains Installed
    Glacier snow cables like the part # PW1038 have a speed rating of up to 30 mph. Anything beyond that and the cables may come apart and damage the vehicle, but also if you are in a scenario where you need the cables you probably shouldn't be going much faster than 30 mph. This is the same speed rating for nearly all tire chains across the board.

  • Snow Cable Tensioner Recommendation
    Rubber tensioner are a great idea when using tire chains like the part # PW1038 or # TC1038 that do not have an automatic tensioning ability. The ones to use are the part # PW105. This style of tensioner seems to work better than the other style like part # PW99.
