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

185/60-15

  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 Cable Snow Tire Chains Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Glacier cable snow tire chains, part number PW1046. These Glacier snow tire chains are SAE class S chains. They're designed specifically for vehicles with limited wheel well clearance. You can see how they work out nicely right here. They have a low profile design, so they're going to provide a smoother ride than your average chains. They feature steel rollers on cross cables, so they're going to give you adequate traction on light snow and ice.

They also feature a ladder pattern that will assist you during starts and stops. They'll work with vehicles that are either front or rear wheel drive and will fit wheels between 15 and 20 inches. See etrailer.com for your specific tire size. They meet Department of Transportation requirements in all states and have a maximum speed rating of 30 miles per hour. They come in a quantity of 2. Let's go ahead and show you how to get them installed.

We're going to be putting tire chains on the front tires of our Santa Fe today because it is driven by the front axles. To begin our test fit, I've gone ahead and laid the chain out. You want to be sure there's no kinks, twists, or any tangles in it. You also want to be sure that the hooks here, the open end, is facing up. Our tire is actually going to be on the opposite side, right here.

Now, let's go ahead and drape our chain over our tire. You want to be sure it's even on both sides. An easy way you can do that is grab the cable in front here and make sure it's about the same in the back. Then we can finish bringing it around our tire, and we'll hook up in the back first. If you're on the backside, what we want to do is take our stoppers here and our eyelet here and put them together. We don't want to connect too many though because we won't be able to connect to the front side evenly, and we can always change it later.

Here on the front, we're going to do the exact same thing. Only this time, we're going to connect as many as we can. That way, it's going to be a nice, tight fit. Then with the excess here, we can fit it into our little keeper. That way, it doesn't flap around while we're on the road. Now we can repeat the same process for the other side. With both sides installed, the manufacturer does recommend a rubber adjuster. What this does is it's going to help keep tension on your chain around your tire while you're on the road. It's going to help your chain have a better fit. You can pick up 2 with part number PW105. Just be sure to install with the hook away from the tire. We'll hook one side, and go right across, and then work our way around. It's very easy to install. Now, it is a good idea to drive a short distance, stop, and get out, see if you need to make any adjustments. Just want to be sure that it remains tight. That's going to complete our look at the Glacier cable snow tire chains, part number PW1046.

Haven't used in snow yet, but tried them on to check fit and they are VERY fast/easy to install (I've always used chains before) and fit very well. Quality looks pretty good (though these are clearly meant for occasional use, not daily living in snow). My only complaint was the 10 minutes it took me to untangle them out of the bag the first time. When I put them away, it was clear immediately that rolling each up individually then 'latching' the hooks to hold the roll in place was a better way than the 'rolling-them-up-together-and-trying-your-best-to-tangle-them' method apparently used at the factory. Also, rolled up individually that way, they fit easily into the bag with plenty of room for the rubber-snuggers, too (some reviews said the bag was too small). 351427

They're tire chains, what can I say... The price was competitive unles you look at used chains on [another site]. The etrailer site made it easy and shipment was fast. I'll wait for a clear, dry day and install them on the front wheels of my 2017 Subaru Outback Touring. Then I'll take them off and probably never open the bag again. It's always a good idea to carry chains in the mountains in winter, even if you drive a new Subaru. Also recommended: pack bottled water, some food, a fleece blanket, winter sleeping bag and a candle lantern. And drive with a full tank of gas. 331585

I cannot review the product right now as I just received it and purchased it as a "just in case" scenario when we drive from SF to Tahoe at the end of the month. However I really appreciated the customer service when I called to make sure I was ordering the right item. The tracking of the item was also flawless from etrailer and the package actually got here a day earlier than scheduled. The cables come in a handy pouch with instructions and a tag with tire compatibility. All good. Will order again from etrailer for sure. 233915

Second time buying from etrailer. Very good communication and speedy delivery. My tire chains where shipped to me days early. George J, from etrailer, sent me an message thanking me for being a return customer and that my chains were being shipped that same day I ordered them. By the way, that was a Sunday. Great personal service from and online retailer. That is uncommon and much appreciated. Thanks George! 336423

I use the product on a limited basis (really snowy conditions) but they provide great traction. I have 4wd with my JGC so accelerating and driving aren't the problem, it's the stopping. Even at slow speeds, driving down windy hills on the commute is problematic for any SUV. These chains definitely provide the traction you need in back road driving. Plus you do not have to shell out $600 on snow tires. 6655

Nice company to do business with . Easy to understand what product to buy for my application. Price was right and product is not cheap throwaway. Price was good enough I bought two setts of chains for my 2017 Honda Ridgeline. If needed can put one set on each end of the vehicle. I travel a lot as I'm an inspector for a state board. Now can put these in the trunk and have them if needed. 322583

We go to Honduras in a Mission every year. We set up medical and dental services in the village up the mountain where only 4x4 can reach. When it rains the only way we can get there is if we set up these chains. Is like night and day the difference. Without chains we got stuck with 3 of the trucks. We set up the chains and it felt as we were driving a tank. 280107

They arrived in good condition and on time. Tried them on the car today and they are much easier to put on than my old tire chains. Would give them 5 stars if only the bag was a little larger. Putting the cables back in the bag is like trying to repack a parachute. Took a lot of pushing and shoving to get them in and then zipped up. 343696

Don't know about the product yet since I have not use it but the service by Rachel was great. She assured my that the sizing was right and that I would receive the chains before our Idaho road trip. They arrived yesterday. A little concerned about the quality and durability since the product was made in China but time will tell. 362150

Purchased these for a snow weekend. We've never used snow chains before and boy are we glad we had them in the minivan. We drive a 2014 Honda Odyssey and it got stuck in the snow overnight. We put the chains on and easily made our way out. You should practice putting the chains on before you have to do it in bad weather! 236857

Ordering from the site was easy and straightforward. Economy shipping is very reasonable and took just 7 days from MO to CA. Haven't taken the cables out of the box yet because we left for a trip as soon as they came in, and we needed to carry them in the car. So far everything is great. 346960

Ask the Experts about this Glacier Tire Chains
Do you have a question about this Tire Chain?


  • Tire Chain Recommendation For 2015 Subaru Outback
  • In the owner's manual for your 2015 Subaru Outback, it should state whether the acceptable tire chains are limited to Class S Compatible. If you are unable to find that information in the manual, the dealership should be able to answer that question for you. The concern when considering tire chains is due to the clearance needed. Traditional chains might not be recommended for your vehicle. Minimum clearances must be maintained around spring clips, fenders, braces, splash pans, fuel...

  • Can Tire Chains Be Used On a 2015/2016 Subaru Forester or 2017 Subaru Outback?
  • The Thule Self-Tensioning, Low-Profile Snow Tire Chains, # TH2004205104, will give you enough clearance because they will adjust tension and not just have slack in the chain. If you are concerned about the seeming contradicting information, you could go with a cable chain like Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains, # PW1042. With these style chains, spring rollers are wrapped around sturdy wire cross cables. With this product, Rubber Adjusters like # PW100 are recommended. In the Owner's...

  • Are Snow Chains Required for Both Wheels On a Dual Rear Wheel Moving Van
  • You can use one tire chain on each side of your dual rear wheel van, however, I would recommend using chains on all 4 rear wheels, especially if you will be driving in areas with extreme weather. Using chains on all 4 wheels will provide more traction on snow and ice over using chains on 2 wheels, but using chains on only 2 wheels is acceptable. The Glacier Chains Cable Chains, # PW1046, that you referenced are designed to fit the 225/75 R16 tire, however, these chains were designed...

  • Yes, the Glacier Chains Cable Snow Tire Chains, # PW1046, will fit the P235/55R19 tires on your 2013 Lexus RX 450h. I have attached a link to all of the tire chains that we carry that will fit your tire size. It is important that you check your owners manual on the use of tire chains. Some manufacturers place restrictions on the use of tire chains. If you would like a tire chain with better performance at an economical price, I would recommend looking at the Glacier Square-Link Tire...

  • Availability of Snow Tire Chains For a LT225/75R16 Tire Size
  • The Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains, part # PW1042, will fit the LT225/75R16 tire size. I would also recommend to use the Glacier Rubber Adjusters, part # PW99, for the Glacier snow tire chain. They attach to the snow chains and keep constant tension on the chains for a tight, secure fit. I am including a link to a page that will show all of the snow tire chains I have available for the LT225/75R16 tire size.

  • Snow Tire Chain Recommendations for 2016 Subaru Outback w/ 225/60-18 Tires
  • The owner's manual of your Subaru Outback states in no uncertain terms that tire chains should not be used on your vehicle. "Traction Devices" like cables may be used if they meet Class S specifications and are used on the front tires only. For cables, I'd recommend using # PW1046 from Glacier Chain along with # PW105 tensioners to keep the cables tight.

  • Tire Chain Recommendation for a 2004 RX 330 AWD and a 2012 Acura TL SH-AWD
  • Snow tire chains are designed to give you additional traction in heavy snow and ice conditions, even vehicles that have AWD and 4WD. If you plan on taking a trip to an area with heavy snow or ice, it would be a good idea to bring a set of tire chains along for emergency situations. Using tire chains is not necessarily required, but they will help in hazardous conditions and there are even some areas that require the use of snow chains during certain times of the year. I recommend checking...

  • Will Tire Chains or Cables for Light Truck Tires Fit the Same Size Passenger Car Tires
  • Yes, there is a slight difference between passenger car tires and light truck tires when it comes to using tire chains. Tire chain manufacturers will usually list chains/cables for regular tires and different chains/tires for light truck tires so even tires the same size may not be able to fit each others chains/cables. For LT tires, be sure to use chains or cables for light truck tires in size 245/75-16 to ensure compatibility. Cables # PW1046 are for passenger cars, not for light...

  • Tire Chain Recommendations for a 2010 Acura MDX
  • On your 2010 Acura MDX you can use 1 pair of chains, like the Glacier Tire Chains, # PW1046, that you have referenced, for use in snow and ice. You will want to put the chains on the primary drive wheels of the vehicle. For example, if you have a front wheel drive vehicle you would put them on the front wheels. For rear wheel drive vehicles, you would put them on the rear wheels. From the research I did, your MDX is all wheel drive. All wheel drive vehicles usually engage all 4 wheels...

  • Tire Chain Recommendation for a Honda Odyssey with 235/60-18 Tires
  • For the tire size you listed I would recommend the Titan Chains part # TC2319. These have a diamond pattern which means you will get the best traction for braking, accelerating, and turning, they're pretty easy to install and they are priced great. Check out the review video I attached for more info. You will want to check the owners manual of your Honda Odyssey to determine if there are any restrictions on snow chain usage with your vehicle.

The online manual does not state which class of snow chains are acceptable. The chains that you selected are recommended for your front tires but Mercedes does not recommend tire chains for the front of the CLS 550.

  • Cable Tire Chain Fit for 225/60-17 Size Tires on 2012 Subaru Outback
  • The only spring roller cable chains that we offer for your 225/60-17 size tires are the Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains # PW1038. These chains are Class S compatible, meaning they will require minimal clearance, 15 mm, between the tire sidewall and vehicle. Using rubber adjusters will help keep the tire cable secure on your vehicle's tire. For your 17 inch rims, you will want the Glacier Multi-Arm Rubber Adjusters for 15 Inch to 18 Inch Rims # PW105. I recommend checking the owner's...

  • Which Tires should Tire Chains Be Installed on for 2015 Subaru Outback AWD
  • Thank you for your purchase from etrailer! Typically for All Wheel Drive vehicles, it is best to use chains on all of the wheels. This allows all of the wheels to have the same traction while driving. However, if using only one set of chains, you will want to follow the guidelines in your owner's manual. Since the manual for your 2015 Subaru Outback instructions you to use them only on the front wheels, you will want to put the chains on the front wheels. I am not sure why Subaru...

  • Subaru 2015 Outback AWD Snow Chain Recommendation
  • Using chains on all four tires will give the best traction for braking, turning, and acceleration. So if possible I would recommend going that route. But in most cases you can get away with just one set of chains or cables. To determine which axles your 2015 Subaru Outback should have chains installed on you will need to consult your owners manual. The cable set part # PW1046 that you referenced has been confirmed to fit your tire size so they would work great for an emergency set of...

  • Cable Style Tire Chains for a 2014 Honda Odyssey with P235/65R17 Tires
  • We do not carry that brand of tire chain but I looked them up and that size will not fit the 235/65-17 tires on your 2014 Honda Odyssey. It would take SZ429 instead. We have similar chains that will fit, # PW1946V. This are cable style chains that include the rubber adjusters. I have also included a link to the right to all of the chains we carry for your tire size. Be sure to consult the vehicle owners manual for specific information on the use of tire chains.

  • Tire Chain Recommendation for a 1999 Chevy Silverado With Chrome Rims
  • Snow chains and even cables have metal parts that could potentially scratch your chrome wheels. It is more likely that scratches will occur during the installation process because when moving the chains are, ideally, in the correct position away from the rims and centrifugal force and tension will keep them in place. Probably the safest bet in terms of keeping your chrome rims pristine is to use something like the Glacier V-Bar Snow Tire Chains with Cam Tighteners, # PWH2829SC. With...

  • Class S Snow Chain Recommendation for a 2001 F-150 With LT 255/70-16 Tires
  • For your 2001 Ford F-150, with 255/70-16 LT tires, we have several sets of Snow tire chains available, see link. Among these Snow chains three have less than 15mm clearance that is required for Class S rated chains. I would select the Thule XB16 Standard Snow Tire Chains, item # TH01571255, for the best performing Class S rated snow chains for your truck. They are also the easiest to install and come with an industry leading 5 year warranty. The Glacier V-Trac Cable Snow Tire Chains,...

  • Cable Style Snow Tire Chains for P225/75-16 Tires
  • A tire size of 225/27-16 like you indicated in your question then that would mean it has an overall diameter of 20.78 inches compared to the 29.29 diameter of a 225/75-16. If you meant LT225 vs P225 (/75-16 for both) then you can use use the appropriate size chains for both types of tire but some are better suited for one style or the other. For a P225 you would want to go with chains # PW1042 because they are better suited for passenger vehicle tires as opposed to light truck (LT) tires....

  • Will Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains Work On A 2003 Chevrolet TrailBlazer 4WD With 245/65R17 Tires
  • Before buying snow tire chains or cables you will want to check your owners manual or with the Chevrolet dealer if you can install snow tire chains or cables on your 2003 Chevrolet TrailBlazer 4WD, or if there are any limitations. The cable snow tire chains you will need for the 245/65R17 tire size is the Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains, part # PW1046. The set you reference, part # PW2014C, will not work on the 245/65R17 tire size. If you can use cable snow tire chains on your TrailBlazer...

  • Tire Chains for a 2017 Subaru Outback with 235/65-17 Tires
  • I have included a link to all of the tire chains that fit the 235/65-17 tires on your 2017 Subaru Outback. That does include cables # PW1046. Cables are a solid choice if your owner's manual states that chains or traction devices with a Class S rating are needed because of limited clearance around the tires. I also recommend rubber adjusters # PW105 to help keep the chains tight and centered.

  • Snow Chains Recommendation for a 2011 Lexus RX350
  • Your Lexus RX350 should have 235/60R18 size tires on it. The tire chains we offer that give the absolute best fender well clearance confirmed to fit this tire size would be the Thule K Summit Tire Chains # TH02230K66. Most chains wrap around the inside of the tire to secure, whereas these do not at all so they work the best for vehicles with limited tire clearances. Check out the review and install videos I attached for more info. You will need to check your vehicle's owners manual...

  • Tire Chain Recommendations for 1993 Tioga Arrow Class C Motorhome w/ 225/75-16 Tires
  • We have many different chains available for the 225/75-16 tires on your Class C motorhome. If you're just wanting something bare-bones without all the bells and whistles, the Titan Chain V Bar Link tire chains # TC2819CAM would work well for you. The V bar chain links will bite into snow and ice, providing great traction. If you went that route, I'd also recommend tensioners like part # TCMA2. If you'd like something that's easier to install and remove, the Thule XG12 Self Tensioning...

  • Can Snow Chains be Used on the Front and Rear Wheels of a 2007 Mercedes-Benz CLS 550
  • I checked the online manual for the 2007 Mercedes-Benz CLS 550 and it states that tire chains are only to be used on the rear wheels. Your owners manual may have different information for your specific vehicle. Either the # PW1046 Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains or the # PW1946V Glacier V-Trac Cable Snow Tire Chains are the correct size for your rear 285/35-18 wheel and tire combination. You will need to check your owners manual or with the Mercedes dealer to determine if snow chains...

  • Snow Tire Chain Recommendation for 2012 Toyota Sienna SE with 235/50-19 Tires
  • We do have several chains options for the 235/50-19 tire size but the Glacier 1046 chains will not fit. Instead you would need PW2016C. However, you will want to consult the vehicle owners manual and/or a local dealership about the use of chains. There can be restrictions on the use of chains on some vehicles, depending on tire size, so consulting the owners manual is a must. I have included a link to a video showing a typical installation for you. If you determine that you can use these...

  • You will want to check your owners manual or with the Volvo dealer to determine if you can use snow tire chains on your 2006 Volvo XC90 AWD, or if there are any limitations. Some Volvo all-wheel drive cars may limit snow chains to the front wheels only. The Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains, part # PW1046, that you have referenced, will fit the 235/65-17 tire size. This is the tire size we show as factory on your 2006 Volvo XC90 AWD. If you can use these snow chains on your vehicle,...

  • Which Rubber Adjusters to Use with Cable Tire Chains on a 2011 Honda Odyssey with 235/65-17 Tires

  • Snow Tires Chains for a 2013 Highlander AWD When Towing a Tent Trailer
  • Be sure to consult the vehicle owners manual for any restrictions regarding the use of tire chains on your 2013 Toyota Highlander as well as reducing driving speeds are a must. The basic rule is that snow tire chains should always go on the drive wheels. So with a FWD vehicle place the snow tire chains # PW1046 you referenced on the front tires. On an AWD you will install the snow tire chains on the front wheels but getting 2 sets for all the wheels will add steering and braking benefits....

  • Will One Set of Tire Chains Fit Both LT225/75R16 And LT265/70R17 Tires
  • I compared all of the chains for tire sizes 225/75-16 and 265/70-17. There are no chains that fit both sizes so you would need to get separate chains, such as cable style chains, like you want for both vehicles. For the 225/75-16 tires you can use # TC1042 with rubber adjusters # TCOA1. And for the 265/70-17 tires use # TC2028 with rubber adjusters # TCMA2. Be sure to consult the vehicle owners manuals for specific information on the use of tire chains. I have also included a link...

  • Snow Socks or cables
  • Between the Snow Sock and a set of snow cables, the snow cables, all though sometimes cumbersome to install, will give the better traction on ice and snow than the Snow Sock. According to our fit guide, your 2017 Subaru Outback Wagon had two tire size options available. Your vehicle should have either 225/60R18 or 225/65R17 tires installed. In these tires sizes the only thing available would be tire cables. If you have the 225/60R18 tires, then the Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains,...
