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, as shown below.

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 Pewag All Square Tire Chains Review - 2017 Ford F-150

Today, on our 2017 Ford F-150, we're going to be test fitting the Pewag All Square Snow Tire Chains, part number PWE2228S. Today we're working with tire size 265/70R17. If these chains don't fit your particular tire, double check the size, and then go to our fit guide and find the proper fit. Also, installing tire chains can be particularly taxing on your hands, so we do recommend that you wear gloves while you install these. These are strong durable chains made from a nickel manganese alloy, which means they're corrosion resistant. They also have these square links which gives excellent traction in both snow, and icy conditions. These don't have cams that can loosen up while you drive, and it's not required to use any rubber tensioners so you don't have to buy any additional items to install these chains.

You can install them either side, so you can double the life of your chains as well. Before we install the chains onto the tire, we're going to lay them out on the ground like you see here to make sure there's no kinks in the lines. You also want to make sure that this end, where the hook bends over, is facing away from the tire. Next, we'll drape our chains over the tire trying to keep them as even as possible as we do so. Next, we'll go behind the tire, and make our first connections there. We'll take our two ends with the hook and with the links, and go in as far as we can. Then, we'll go back around to the front and make our connections there.

Come back around front. Put our connection point through our first link, bend it back over, and attach it with this link here. You may need to drive a short distance, get out, and double check the chains to make sure they're working properly, and then you're good to go. There you have it for the Pewag All Square Snow Tire Chains, part number PWE2228S, on our 2017 Ford F-150.

2018 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

Just got chains, came when said they would. Put them on they fit fine and got good traction. First set of chains I have ordered for a pickup. They a little lighter weight than I expected. But other chains i have used have been on farm equipment and were made from heaver material. I wouldn't purchase anything lighter weight or cheaper than these unless your using them solely for on road use. On a 2018 Silverado 1500 18" wheels pickup the chains fit well, but you definitely need the chain tightening bunge or the chains do hit the fenders on the rear. Not the chains fault, just GM should have left more space between the rear wheels and the fenders. 591704

After a year of owning these chaims, I am very pleased. I take them with me whenever I travel in the winter months. They have not failed me yet. I will replace them in the future when and if they fail.

Review from a similar Pewag All Square in Tire Chains

I am pleased with these tire chains. There are easy to hook up and tighten down well. I have yet to break a link. They are not any more noisy than any other chain. When breaking they do not tend to slide. When using the chain adjusters, there is no banging of excess chain on the vehicle. shipping was fast and well packed. Would purchase again. Highly recommend the chain adjusters. 589006

Review from a similar Pewag All Square in Tire Chains

We had just been through a bad ice storm and couldn't get out of our acreage. A second storm was coming, so I called Jesse M to select and purchase a set of chains for my truck. Jesse M was able to ship them the same day, and they arrived in the nick-of-time. If I hadn't had these chains, my family would have been stranded. Thanks Jesse M!! 478238

Review from a similar Pewag All Square in Tire Chains

These arrived, and I put them on in the garage to test fit, and they appear to be perfect. I had to buy two sets, to cover front and rear tires. My tires are 33x12.50x15, and at some point I plan to move up to 35x12.50x15 and understand these will cover those tires too. So I expect to be covered in extreme ice conditions. Very easy to install at home in the garage. I did also purchase the orange chain tensioner's, and they work nicely too. But I really may not need them, as I was able to get these very snug by using 3rd and 4th tightening links. I watched the video that explains how to stack the loose links so they don't flop around too much. etrailer was a pleasure to work with, products arrived quickly. 489376

Nice set of heavy duty chains for my 3500 HD. They fit well on a 275/70/R18 BFG KO2. 2nd link in back side of tire and 2nd link on the outside of the tire. 327826

Review from a similar Pewag All Square in Tire Chains

I just received the chains yesterday, a fairly quick turn around given the weight and they were out of stock. They appear to be good quality, I've yet to use them. A note, the shipping cardboard box was torn wide open upon arrival on 3 of the 4 corners, I would recommend a better quality box for shipping or contents are going to go missing. Nothing appeared to be damaged inclusive of the other items I ordered. I can imagine that most arrive this way due to the sheer weight of the chains....but still. If I needed more chains and or other items, I "would" order from again. 609809

Review from a similar Pewag All Square in Tire Chains

I got these chains for my 3500 Ram with 10 ply E rated Hankook I-Pike winter tires size 245-75-17. I had first ordered PWE3210S that the manufacturer said would fit, but the chains were a few inches too short. Vanessa at E-trailer worked with me and she was in contact with Pewag numerous times to ensure a proper fit on the second set of chains and they fit perfectly. I really cant believe how good of customer service these folks at E-trailer provide, outstanding!! 600256

  • Driving Speed and Snow Chain Lifespan When Used on 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 HD 4x4
  • All snow chains require reduced driving speed. Typically manufacturers suggest speed not exceed 30 mph when chains are installed. Driving faster than this increases the risk of damaging and/or dislodging the chains, which could lead to damage to your vehicle and/or personal injury to you or other motorists. No tire chain product allows for normal driving speed in snowy or icy conditions. The rate and degree of wear on any given snow chain is a function of many factors, including but...

The chains are constructed of low-carbon steel and offer a 90 day warranty.

  • Comparing Pewag Square and Glacier Twist Link Mud Service Chains
  • Between the two sets of chains the Pewag All Square Snow Tire Chains # PWE2228S has a few distinct advantages. The links are square which means they are taller and will do better in deep snow. The set is also reversible which means you get quite a bit more life out of the chains than a set that is not.

They fit your tire size and are extra heavy duty which means they will last longer in the higher stress scenario of towing. Unlike most chains these are reversible too which allows you to get more use out of them as well.
