Installation

Installation Step 1

1. Spread the chain around the back of the tire.


Installation Step 2

2. Connect the yellow and blue cable at the back of the tire.


Installation Step 3

3. Push the cable into place behind the tire and center the cross chains on the tire's tread. Then, on the front side of the tire, join the 2 ends of the yellow side chain using the green hook.


Installation Step 4

4. Feed the silver draw chain with the rubber tensioner through the red channel at the bottom and pull it tight. Then run the tensioner through the red rings. (Note: Depending on your tire size, you might not be able to thread through both rings.) Pull the tensioner across the tire and fasten it to the yellow chain on the opposite side.


Installation Step 5

5. Pull your vehicle forward and retighten the chain.


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 Clearances

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 itself.

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

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

Be warned! I bought the correct size and installed the chains correctly and on my first drive down a snowy mountain, the chains broke apart and the loose metal pieces damaged the front two wheel wells of my car, my shocks, and the paint/carbon alloy pieces. I have been given estimates that this will cost $3-5K to fix everything and the chains themselves are now also useless after one use. Be careful!


Comments
I will have our Customer Service team reach out to you. I recommend to always test fit the chains when you receive them. I also suggest watching our video receive of the chains.

Good easy to use product and a very smooth transaction with quick shipping and delivery. Highly recommend working with etrailer. I have bought a few items over the years and have not been disappointed once.



by:
2010 Toyota Prius

Everything looks good and shipping was quick. I was disappointed by the amount of shipping material used, it seemed excessive and bordered on wasteful to me. I would have preferred to shop at a brick and mortar store than to have pounds and pounds of cardboard and paper on my hands after receiving the product. Thank you for the chance to offer my comments, I hope there's a way shipping material can be reduced.



by:
2010 Toyota Prius

I installed one of the chains in the driveway to ensure the fit was snug given the lack of wheelwell space on the Prius. I like the diamond shape which I expect will be more aggressive than cables. Of course I hope that I don’t need them but feel well prepared if chains are required.



by:

Great follow-up by the etrailer staff, and the product is just what I need for the next Snowpocalypse in Atlanta...



by:
2010 Toyota Prius

This product is very easy to put on and work great.



by:

Did a practice install. Installs fine. 194/95R15. As with any chains, I highly recommend going a few practice installs in good weather before winter.

Review from a similar Diamond Alloy in Tire Chains


BE CAREFUL. I've been saving up for years to get my Model 3 SR+. This winter I planned to go on a trip to Reno with my family from SF and bought these chains in preparation for crossing the Sierra. Because of the good reviews I had high hopes and confidence. Unfortunately, these chains completely destroyed the area around my left tire. I made sure to travel under 25mph, the chains were put on correctly, and there was a solid layer of snow on the ground when using them. I'm not sure when it happened but a chain snapped and caused the loose chains to hit the bottom of the rear tire well. The protective layer of the tire well completely came off, tire rims were incredibly scratched up, underside of the protective layer is extremely scratched up, the side of the car panel damaged and sticking out.

Customer Service will reach out to you.

Review from a similar Diamond Alloy in Tire Chains


These chains were amazing! I was a bit hesitant to go with chains over cables due to the car's manual saying to use cables, but after talking to Bob at etrailer, and watching the install videos, I went with them (on all four tires) and am glad I did! We went up to Yosemite for the New Year, and it snowed the day we drove in. We got through the gate into the park without needing chains, but once inside, the roads started to get covered, and though we have AWD, we don't have snow tires and the chains seemed like the best option. We pulled over and had the chains on all four tires within about 20 minutes. The car ran like a tank through the snow (and later, ice-covered roads) and I'm really happy we went with the chains rather than cables. After putting on the chains, we drove about 100 yards to check and tighten them. They were actually pretty tight - only had to tighten one. They really really came in handy driving through the Yosemite Valley, and the email responses I got from Bob prior to buying these showed me great customer service. The shipping speed was top notch as well, and overall, I'm happy that we went with etrailer to get these chains for our snow-covered trip to Yosemite.

Review from a similar Diamond Alloy in Tire Chains


These chains are Awesome in every way! I live at 7500' on a mesa in W.new mexico, winter is get to town in the morning early while the roads are still frozen. . . otherwise its mud\snow\rock\ice, in a steady uphill climb. . . These chains go on so fast, (like 5min for a set). I use them on a 2001 AWD\4WD Expedition... FRONT end only and while I get some rear end sliding, the fronts just never break loose at all

Review from a similar Diamond Alloy in Tire Chains


From ordering, to shipment, tracking, delivery and follow-up, really top notch service. The videos that show how to install are perfect (pay attention to that first hooking of the chain after draping the chains over the tire - a very important step!!). The picture is of my practice run in Texas prior to heading to PA/NY for a couple of weeks - haven’t needed them yet, but have total peace of mind that if I do need them, all will be well - they performed great in my pasture!!

Wow!! Installed in minutes and fit snug no chain flopping in fender well like other chains. These are half the weight than my other chains and Titans came with nice carry case as well. Thank you to Christina J for all your help and getting these to me just in time to hit the snow [thumbs up]

Review from a similar Diamond Alloy in Tire Chains


I haven't driven with them yet, but I like the size of the chain and the design, and expect them to ride smoother than ladder chains. The storage bag is nice also. They were easy to put on without moving the vehicle, and they fit perfectly on the 265/70-17 tires on my Toyota 4Runner. I've added a rubber tie down strap to tighten them further just in case. In the photo the vehicle hasn't moved yet, I might have to adjust them a bit, but they do feel pretty tight already.

Review from a similar Diamond Alloy in Tire Chains


Tire chains are too loose, the tightening chain was pulled as fas as possible, but still too loose


Comments
I have reached out to the manufacturer about the installation of the chain. It was suggested to take the pull chain up through the next yellow side chain then bring it back and that would tighten better. Before taking this step I recommend taking the chains off and then reinstalling. Please note that it is recommended that you pull forward a few feet in order to let the chains reset and then tighten as needed.

Review from a similar Diamond Alloy in Tire Chains


I just received these the other day and tried one on before we head over a couple of passes for our Christmas venture. It fit like a charm on my 2009 Yukon XL 1500 with 265/70R17 tires. It took about 5 minutes to put one on in nice weather with no snow. If I need to change my review after using them I'll do so. For now, I am completely satisfied.

Review from a similar Diamond Alloy in Tire Chains


Well constructed, but these won't stay straight on my tires. As soon as I turn they slide across the surface and end up slapping around the wheel wells. I tightened them as tight as they would go, within 1 link of max tight and even wrapped the chain through other parts of the yellow to try and get them tight but nothing worked. I have a 2021 F-150 platinum with the 20" wheels. Your experience might differ if using a higher profile tire but for me these don't work. Shame because I really wanted them to.


Comments
You mentioned that they are not a fit for you and I had a few questions that I wanted to ask. Can you confirm your tire size? Would you be able to send a picture with them installed?
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 03/02/2022
Comments
I have a 2021 F-150 platinum with 27560-20s. They fit when installing them, but as soon as I drive on them even at only 10 mph and take a turn, they end up sliding across the surface and quickly end up not straight and start rubbing on parts of the vehicle. I tried using them twice in the snow up in the Sierra Nevada mountains in December and the result was the same both times. I can mount them for a picture but since I am down below the snow line right now I do not want to drive around on them on bare roads to demonstrate how they slide around. But if it is helpful to show how I mounted them for reference I can send a picture.

Yes, if you could send a picture of the chain installed that would be great.

Review from a similar Diamond Alloy in Tire Chains


To be honest, I never had to use these tire chains in bad weather. They were purchased as insurance because we had travel plans were included crossing the Rocky Mountains and Seaira Nevada mountains in January. The weather was mild on our actual dates of travel. I did a test install before, and it was easy enough and straight forward.

Review from a similar Diamond Alloy in Tire Chains


Chains fit my Blizzak 265/70 R17 tires perfectly. I'll be honest, I was expecting thicker links (similar to old school snow chains) but since my vehicle requires Class S chains I guess the links need to be a smaller gauge. No worries, I did a test install in the garage and they went on fine. Also took a test drive on snow covered gravel road and they worked as advertised. No regrets on my purchase, in fact I might get an additional set for my front tires as well at some point. Shipping was extremely fast. Hopefully I'll never need them, but if I do it's good to know I've got them in the vehicle.


Comments
Perfect. I did get a second set for my front tires and have had the opportunity to use them on county roads that arent plowedmaintained by the county. Worked perfect. Continue to highly recommend.

Review from a similar Diamond Alloy in Tire Chains


Just completed fit-check of these chains on my two vehicles (2016 Toyota Tundra, P255/70R18, Michelin LTX MS2; 2010 Toyota Sequoia, P275/55R20 111S M+S, Bridgestone Dueler H/L) and all is good! Hardest part of installation was untangling the chains to lay out on the ground (that always is, for me!). Practice makes it easier. Thank you etrailer!

Rolling a few revolutions and re-tightening chains IS important. Don't leave that step out. I'm going to add rubber tensioners (old-school, I know) just to be sure.

Pics are of the 2010 Sequoia and 2016 Tundra.

Ive only had to use them once in the year Ive had them I live in SoCal, after all!. Easy on, easy off. Work good.

Review from a similar Diamond Alloy in Tire Chains


Im am very very satisfied with purchasing these chains from etrailer. First their web page was easy to navigate. Second the price was great. Then they were delivered as promised and quick. Once they arrived the quality is great and they came in a very nice carry case. Then I actually put them on in less then 5 minutes each and they went on without moving the truck like it says. so easy I couldn't believe it. I drove several times up and down my driveway without any problems with traction, and it was very slippery without them. I don't plan to use them all the time I plan to use them when I plow my driveway next year but just wanted to get prepared for next year. I put them over all season tires so I saved from getting snow tires for plowing. Great Job Team etrailer !!!


Comments
the tire chains worked awesome. I have a home plow on my ford escape and all season tires. without the chains I could have never plowed, went through over one foot of snow without any problem. they are real easy to put on and worked better then my expectations. I did have to purchase new rubber tensioners because I coated the chains and rubber tensioners with dc 10 which made the rubber break down , that was my fault. looking forward to next winter, only to plow instead of snowblow.thanks

Review from a similar Diamond Alloy in Tire Chains


The good: They are easy to put on. The price is cheap. Even if they bail you out one time it will be cheaper than calling a tow truck. The carrying case is nice so they store in the vehicle well.

The bad: They are built to a price point. I bought 2 sets, so for 4 tires. I used them the first time this week. They worked and paid for themselves, but 2 of the chains had issues that required repair till I can use them again. I don't think I'd drive 30mph on these, I'd be nervous they might come apart. They were hard to tension to the point they felt tight. One of the loops that hold the chain to the cable bent open, releasing the chain. If I was actually traveling with the chains placed the chain slapping around would likely do some damage. I was just trying to get up a 20 foot snowy hill with a trailer attached. To get the chains off, once they are unclasp and on the ground, you have to drive off of them. This maybe user error, but if you drive over the part where the cable clasp is, it bends closed so they can't be installed again. I'm surprised it bent driving over it in the snow but I know for next time to push that part out of the way to make sure it doesn't get bent again. The issue, if I hadn't noticed the next time I needed to use them I wouldn't of had tools to bend it back and would have been toast. The other hook, I still haven't decided how to bend it back. I worry if I heat it, it will be weaker than the first time but I'm sure I will be able to fix it.

So for an emergency chain that you think or are hoping you will never need, these are great! If you think you might use your chains regularly or need to actually drive longer distances or faster on them, I'd recommend buying something that will likely be twice as expensive. The expensive ones look about the same, but I'd guess they would be built a little more sturdy.
