Extra-durable, corrosion-resistant nickel manganese alloy steel chains are reversible and made of thick, square links for excellent grip and reliable wear. Chains are sized to fit wide-base or dual tires.

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

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 etrailer.com again. 609809

If you are looking for the strongest chains these are the ones for you. Only used mine a handful of times so far on the lake and no issue at all getting traction and absolutely no sign of wear!!! Called last year to verify the size of fitment for my truck. 285-65-r18. Very friendly and helpful staff but the chains were too big when received and I was able to take one cross section out and cut the rest off for perfect fitment. Otherwise 5 star quality product. 758829

Review from a similar All Square in Tire Chains

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 All Square in Tire Chains

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

Dont use often 5 times but work ok

Review from a similar All Square in Tire Chains

Estimated ship time from eTrailer was inaccurate since the product turned out not to be in stock; had to wait an additional week before delivery. However the chains did fit my 2015 RAM 2500 Power Wagon with stock tires (Duratrac 285/70-17) and wheels. The rear left parking brake cable is VERY close (~1/2 inch) from the chain, so I had to use a zip tie to keep the extra links from slapping against the cable. There was plenty of clearance up front and on the rear right. Glacier rubber adjusters (PW99) are necessary to remove chain slack. 642309

Review from a similar 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

fine, no problems or breakage

Review from a similar 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

Review from a similar 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

One year later the chains are working well, they did come loose once even with the proper blue colored spider type rubber tightener. Luckily I caught it before any damage was caused. I check them regularly. I would definitely recommend these chains for off pavement usethats all I use them for..

Review from a similar All Square in Tire Chains

I have tested these in my driveway they fit excellently they lock solidly onto the tire and each other with the additional tensioner there's no way they could come off I have not used these on the snow yet as I bought them for a trip across the country during February I have not encountered the chance to use them and I hope I don't lol they are real quality product. I cannot speak to the durability as I have not been able to use them yet 748766

    For the 285/70-17 size tires on your 2014 Ram 1500 the Titan Chain Alloy Snow Tire Chains # TC2327 will work perfectly. These square-link diamond-pattern chains will provide great traction in the snow and ice and the integrated tensioners will allow for a simple installation and a snug fit.

  • Recommended Tire Chains for 275/65-20 Size Dual Tires on a 2014 GMC Sierra 3500
    Since you will be going into the mountains I highly recommend using chains that have square links. For this we have the part # PWE3231S that fits the 275/65-20 size tires on your 2014 GMC Sierra 3500. The square links are best for heavy duty applications like what you will be facing. Please note that when I looked at the online version of the owner's manual for your Sierra it states on page 10-70 not to use tire chains if you have dual wheels and for single rear wheel applications to...

  • Tire Chain Recommendation for Size ST275/70R18 on 2018 Ram 2500
    For your tire size of ST275/70R18 the tire chains I recommend are the Titan chains part # TC2533 as they are easier to install, provide excellent traction, and are priced great. I attached an install video for this chain set on a Ram very similar to yours as well. Ideally you run chains on all four tires. But a single set on the rear axle will get you around. You won't be able to stop or turn as well as if you had chains on all tires though.

  • Reversible Pewag All-Square Chains for 2015 Ram 2500 with 275/70-18 Tires
    The online owner's manual for the 2015 Ram 2500 says (on page 614) to use chains only on the rear LT275/70R18E tires. The Pewag All Square Snow Tire Chains # PWE3231S you referenced will fit your rear tires and give you an exceptionally durable set of chains for on-road or off-road use. Since these chains are reversible you can flip them over and use the other side once they are worn.

I have highlighted a few key points in the manual which I have attached for you below. - If possible, avoid fully loading your vehicle - Use only SAE Class S chains. - Install chains securely, verifying that the chains do not touch any wiring, brake lines or fuel lines. - Drive cautiously.

    I did some research on your 2016 Ram 2500. Per the owner's manual tire chains can only be used on the rear tires. For your 285/60R20 tires, the heavy-duty chains we offer are the Titan Chain Alloy Snow Chains w/ Cams for Wide Base Tires, part # TC3229SCAM.

    I called and spoke with my contact at Titan Chain regarding your 2016 Ram 1500 as it looks like the 295/60-20 size tire that the truck is equipped with isn't a stock size. He said the best fit for this particular tire size is with the Titan Chain Alloy Snow Chains # TC3231SCAM. There is a chance that the chain may end up being just a bit too long so you might need to cut off a link or two. The issue is that the 295/60-20 tire kind of falls in between chain sizes but this set will be your...

  • Tire Chain Recommendation for Truck with Tire Sizes 285/60-20 and 285/65-20
    The Pewag Square Link tire chains part # PWE3231S are a really great fitting tire chain that fits both sizes you mentioned of 285/60-20 and 285/65-20. These are square link which means they do really well in deep snow! Aside from that set there really isn't any other options that fit both sizes but the # PWE3231S is a really great set that will work well for you.

  • Tire Chain Recommendation for Size 33/12.50 by 18 Size for Plowing Snow
    While we don't have the V-bar style of chains that fit your tire size of 33 12.50 by 18 we do have a square link set part # PWE3231S which would work really great for plowing. The square links do a great job with deeper snow as well as for breaking up ice. The V-bars are the best for ice but the square links are also pretty sharp to and would do a great job breaking up ice as well. The second picture shows a customer of ours who used these chains for plowing as well.

That said, the Pewag All Square Chains are no slouch due to the thick cross links which provide excellent traction in both snow and ice. In fact, the cross links on these particular tire chains provide up to 32% more traction than comparable models.

These are made from low carbon steel so they won't last quite as long as the Pewag Chains part # PWE3231S which are also a fit. These are made from Nickel manganese alloy steel which is much stronger and are reversible so they will last quite a bit longer. These are also square links which will do best in...

    We do have a set of Pewag All Square Tire Chains that do fit your tire size of 275/65R20 as part number # PWE3231S but the part # PWE3229S that you referenced will not fit. These are a great set of chains that since they are square links will give you great traction in deep snow, and since they are reversible and made of Nickel Manganese alloy will last you a long time too. A lot of cheaper chains are made of a softer metal that just wears out quicker.

  • Best Tire Chain Recommendation for Ford F-350 with Tire Size TC3231
    The best tire chain option we have for your tire size 275/65R20 that's not overly expensive is the Titan Twist Link set part # TC3231 which will give you great traction in deep snow on and off road. Twist link chains tend to give you solid traction without being quite as rough since the links are a bit smoother. The ultimate for deep snow traction is the square link sets like part # PWE3231S as the larger square links dig deeper into the snow.
