Pewag PWE2228SC chains are nothing fancy. Good old traditional design. Came in a canvas bag with no closure. Successfully mounted them on P165/70R17 tires. Have not tested them in real-life snowy conditions. After chains are on, should drive vehicle 1/4 to 1/2 tire revolution, then tighten chain hooks further. Adding additional tension cords almost a must. Picture shows chain loosening at 6 o'clock and 7 o'clock positions after driving only a few feet. Consider adding threaded chain link to tie down extra free links to prevent them from flopping around when driving. Flopping chains are know to cut brake and ABS lines and cause other damage to the vehicle, especially if chains are installed on front tires. Thule XG12 Pro may be a better choice for front tires, because nothing flops around on the medial side of chains.

I got the glacier multi arm adjusters and these Pewag chains best purchase I made for Montana elk hunt 2019. Snowed every day in mountains. Had to break a trail every day in order to keep road open. Worked great under tough conditions.

2019 Lexus LX 570

These chains are excellent. Made in USA from what appears to be an Austrian company. This size fit a 2019 lX570 very well. 275/50-21 Way easier to install and more traction than cable chains.

2013 Toyota 4Runner

Am glad to have these chains just in case and for the trips through the mountains :) They are very high quality, Pewag is the best for chains, whether for snow tire or security.. I bought a cheaper set (A different brand) a few years back from one of your local auto parts stores, one of the links broke the first day I used it, very low quality.. Sometimes it is a bummer upfront paying the higher cost for quality, but in the long run it is always worth it.. These Pewag chains can not be beat.. You can tell they built these to last, very strong and durable. The old chains I had might as well have been mesh wire compared to these bad boys.. Plus before I ordered I looked up the Versatility so these chains fit my 4runner now and they should fit my dream Land Cruiser that I am hoping to buy in a few years. I am always very impressed with ordering from Etrailer.. They are always very helpful, professional and seem to actually care about their customers; which many businesses seem to not anymore.. They ship quickly and I always seem to get what I ordered faster than I think it will take. Prices are very reasonable, People are great to work with. The way they run their business is the way it should be ran. I am very happy with this company and am glad to buy products from them, I always love helping supporting companies that do such a wonderful job at what they specialize in! You guys should carry the Pewag security chain as well. Thanks again!

- PWE2228SC

Great service provided by etrailer I will definitely purchase again when tire chains are needed. As for the chains themselves, very impressed with the quality and ease at which they install. Have purchased Pewag chain before so I new the quality, would be there and it is.

- PWE2228SC

Normally don’t write reviews like this, but making an exception in this case. I ordered this set of Pewag chains on a Sunday evening and had them in my possession the following Wednesday morning. The quality of the chains are excellent, but the quality of the service I received was exceptional! I cannot remember the last time I received customer service like this? I received a personal phone call regarding my order and emails updating me of its progress. Even received an email after delivery making sure I was happy! Makes me want to complete another purchase! THANK YOU!!!

Review from a similar All Square with Cam in Tire Chains

These Pewag chains are VERY heavy duty and seem to be well made and strong. The cam tighteners will make adjusting chains easier. Service from etrailer was very helpful in getting the correct size for tires and vehicle, and the chains were shipped quickly.

These chains on my Jeep Rubicon are fantastic. I am a volunteer firefighter and EMT in the mountains of Colorado. I need to get to emergency incidents in the worst of weather. These chains make that possible.

Review from a similar All Square with Cam in Tire Chains

Pewag always has been the standard for chains that are designed to do the work when you have to get work done. The fit was as expected you just have to tie back the tails on the inside where they don’t hit the strut tower. A couple of zip ties works Thanks Tim for the help

Review from a similar All Square with Cam in Tire Chains

So far, these chains look like they will deliver. I wanted something better than a cable chain that only lasts one storm. In my local, we typically get freezing rain with temperatures in the 30's. These should be good on ice. Installation was fairly easy and the cam tensioners pulled the chains tight. I also ordered the chain tensioning bungie.

Review from a similar All Square with Cam in Tire Chains

I ordered the Pewag wide base tire chains on Sunday and they arrived on Wednesday. The chains are all they were said to be. High quality American made. Tire chains are a tool you hope you never need, but are invaluable when you do need them. I plan on using them on my wide profile tires on my F-350. A local municipality uses them on their plow truck all winter. The Pewags have lasted five seasons while lesser brands require replacement after one season.

Review from a similar All Square with Cam in Tire Chains

Nice Chains---The chains we received were for a light truck. The tires we have are P215 70R15 and the chains do not fit. We need 2 more links to make them even come close to closing. We have the truck in the garage in ideal conditions--but if we were out on the road---this is impossible. Sent an e-mail to e-trailers and waiting for a response. Also, 2 of the side links have been put on backwards from the factory.

I double checked the Pewag fit guide and your tire size calls for this chain. We will be in touch to request photos of the backwards links and follow up with you about getting you properly fitting chains.

Review from a similar All Square with Cam in Tire Chains

Haven't used on the road yet, since luckily I didn't encounter snow/ice on my recent drive... but did try on. Their etrailer web site clearly specified what size of tires the chains fit and the details of the specific chain models, like type U. The Sprinter manual specified type U chains. Delivery was per their commitment. Fit is good and triple cam method seems that it will work well to keep the chains snug on the tires. The only thing that seems that could be improved, is the cams are tightened and loosened with a supplied L shaped tool. If this was a T shaped tool, this would allow better leverage to be applied to the cams. Thanks

Review from a similar All Square with Cam in Tire Chains

These are top quality chains. They are made of alloy rather than low carbon steel; which can break when you most need them, and even damage your rig. Do yourself a favor, and invest in good quality USA made chain. Think about it. If you need chains, you are already in a bad situation to begin with. Spend the extra money to buy real chains. It's worth it. The square link works very good on ice and snow, and also works great as mud chains for outdoorsman who spend time in the wilderness.

Review from a similar All Square with Cam in Tire Chains

I ordered this set based on the recommendation from Jameson as to the benefits of the brand and set of chains. Ordered with three day shipping as I was leaving town and the chains arrived in one day. Haven't tried them yet as they are mostly need to carry this time of year.

Review from a similar All Square with Cam in Tire Chains

These are by far the BEST tire chains I've ever owned. These are for plowing in Maine winter, and these chains are massive! Talk about high quality and super heavy duty! I put them on with ease. Fitment is perfect. If you want the best chains on the market, get pewag. The camlock tool is equally heavy duty, big & strong. I'm very happy with these awesome chains. Nothing's indestructible, but these certainly feel like it.

Review from a similar All Square with Cam in Tire Chains

Bought these tire chains for my Ford F-350. Had some days last winter when the driveway below the hill was all ice and plowing would be impossible without chains. Perfect fit, easy installation and those cam locks are awesome for a tight fit.

    I recommend your first step when considering tire chains on your 2010 Dodge Ram 2500 Diesel truck be a check of the owner's manual for any guidance or restrictions regarding their use. Many passenger cars, and some trucks, are limited to using special low-profile S-Class chains that do not require too much wheel well clearance.

  • Pewag Snow Chain Recommendation for a 2006 Ford Expedition
    The Pewag Chains # PWE2228SC and # PWH2228SC have many similarities, but the main differences between the two is that the # PWH2228SC is made of corrosion resistant nickel manganese alloy steel that resists corrosion very well and uses thick square links that provide excellent grip and longer wear.
