How to Choose Snow Chains for Your Vehicle

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

The fit was good. Got here sooner than expected. Etrailer. Has the best customer service. Had no idea they carried so many things.




by:

Haven't had to use them, but they seem like a decent quality. My tire is 325/65R18, the equivlant 35x12.50R18. It fits these tires mostly fine. My concern is that it might be too short to get the best fit. On mine, I was down to the second-to-last ferrule and it felt already tight. I think it may be better if it had more ferrules and closer distance between them. As the truck rolls along and the tire compresses/expands/contracts, it may snap the cable compared to a chain. I have rubber tensioners and that may compound the issue more. Otherwise, it seems like a decent cable if you need lower clearance.

Great product with fast shipping!

For those with an F-250 with 20” wheels, you know the pain of figuring out what you can and cannot do, according to Ford’s owners manual, for chains/cables. If you live in a state that requires carrying chains (traction devices), figuring out what will work with the 250/350’s can be confusing. I knew I needed cables for the 20”s but couldn’t find the right ones that fit a 275/65r20, so after a few minutes online, I called the 800 number. Great response, very helpful, knew exactly what I needed and was even able to recommend the tensioners I needed. I was able to order them online within 5 minutes. The shipping on etrailers part was exceptional, not so much for UPS, but they still got to me in a very reasonable time. Overall, I’m super pleased with my etrailer online and on phone experience!

You’re probably wondering about the cables I bought? I dunno, they look great, and the bag they came in was a plus, as it fits under the back seats no problem. The F-250 Fx4 really does not need cables, even with the stock Michelin’s ATX, took it up into the mountains with 2-3” new snow and more falling all day and didn’t experience any issues. But I gotta have them legally, so these are the ones I got and I think they’ll do very well if I ever get stuck.

Review from a similar Ladder Cable in Tire Chains


Order 2 pairs for my car, got 2 different cables, one set blue the other set green. You can tell instantly because the bags are blue and green and oddly the different colors weight different amounts. Emailed customer service to get cables that match and they said that the label invoice number are the same on both bags, So it's the same product. So if you don't care that you can get 2 different colors from ordering 2 sets in the same order you can try for these.


Comments
I did reach out to the manufacturer who confirmed that the storage bag is changing from blue to green. Our stock of chains will have mixed bags for a short time until the transition in color is completed.

Very well organized web site and good prices and smooth ordering online.
The instructional videos are very good.
Very good customer service. I had to call as a result of a delay in deliver entirely on the part of the postal service. The person I spoke with was very courteous and helpful.
I would not hesitate to order from etrailer again!

Review from a similar Ladder Cable in Tire Chains


Just received my chains yesterday. I have to say, first of, customer service is EXCELLENT! I had questions on which chains were best for my SUV and I was promptly responded with suggestions and links to videos. I went with these tire cables for my 2015 Dodge Durango SXT Plus. There was question about clearance issues with brake lines on the Durango and these seem to be very low profile and made for lower clearance. The price was right too. I did a dry install today and it was a breeze. Took way longer to fold these back up and put back into the storage bag! Lol! (That's not these chains fault, it's user error...) I took some pictures but note it was my first time installing tire cables so I'm going to have to center them a bit more. I purchased the Titan chain multi arm rubber chain adjusters and they did make a difference on how snug the cables fit, so I would recommend them. We only plan on using them on very rare occasions when we venture up the mountain, so in sure if you live where it snows all the time, you will probably look at higher prices chains, but I think these are perfect for the occasional use. I will update after our Big Bear trip if we use them to reflect actual use. Thank you etrailer, they also upgraded my shipping to get here a couple days earlier just because... that was amazing!

Review from a similar Ladder Cable in Tire Chains


Purchased Titan Tire Chains for Wide Base Tires - Ladder Pattern - Square Link part TC3229S for a 2018 Ram 2500 with OEM 275/70/R18 tires. These are great chains and very heavy-duty for wide base tires. I mounted them on the rear axle of the Ram and discovered the chain in close proximity to the P-Brake cable, too close for my comfort. I believe the wide base chains are too wide for these OEM tires and fit was pretty loose.
One could gain more clearance near the E-Brake by attaching the inside hook to the end (last) link. Then using a chain a tightener do your best to take up all the outside slack. I just was not comfortable with the overall fit so I send these chains back. Very painless return made easy by etrailer because they emailed a return UPS label.

After reviewing tech info and reviews I purchased Titan Alloy Tire Chains - Diamond Pattern - Square Link part TC2533 for the 2018 Ram 2500. These are regular duty and a better fit. These chains offer a lot more clearance for the P-Brake cable. They are a cleaver design, have great carrying case and are fairly quick to install. I have not purchased winter tires for this vehicle so the Ram need chains to pull a travel trailer up and down our snow-covered road.

Got chains delivered sooner than estimated. Chains are a great product for the price, and performed great while driving up in the Big Bear Mountains.

Review from a similar Ladder Cable in Tire Chains


Titan Chain Cables are great quality and so easy to use. We were able to intuitively put them on and take off quickly. Etrailer has the best prices I've seen after researching.

Also, they have the BEST customer service, specifically Jane S. & Tammie P. I was not familiar with cables and our Subaru had specific clearance requirements. They made sure I received the correct type, fit and clearance for my car.

We highly recommend!

These cable chains will be perfect "just in case" items for our cross state trips.
Hope we'll never need them but great peace of mind!

Review from a similar Ladder Cable in Tire Chains


I tried to fit it in on the driveway before going out to snow country.
It fitted good and much cheaper than buying it from [online].
Needed the cable instead of chains since the tire figment is tight against the wheel well.

  • Availability of Snow Tire Chains to Fit SUV with 305/35-24 Tire Size
    Before buying snow tire chains you will want to check your owners manual or with the car dealer if you can install snow tire chains on your SUV, or if there are any limitations. I would recommend the Titan Cable Snow Tire Chains, part # TC3031. These cable snow chains will meet the SAE Class S (limited clearance) ratings. A SAE Class S snow tire chain means that the minimum sidewall clearance is .59 inches, which is 15 mm. So if a snow chain has an internal clearance of 15 mm or less...

These chains carry a 'Class S' designation and are specifically designed for vehicles with tight clearance between the tire and the wheel well and the inside of the tire and the suspension components. The cables should be installed on the drive wheels of the vehicle and on a 4x4 vehicle, they'd be installed on the rear wheels but you could use them on all 4 wheels if you wish. Adjusters,...
