Excellent traction on snow and ice. Heavy duty textured square chains. Only the best for my 14,000# Mitsubishi Fuso FG 4x4.




by:
2016 Ram 3500

These are great chains! They do give you a rather rough ride but I expect that from any square link snow chain. They grip great and are very strong.

2015 Ram 2500

Heavy durable chains . Wish the tightening tool was longer for more leverage .

They tracked the order every step of the way. Very informative the second you place a order. Great customer service! Product is perfect, can’t wait to try them out next storm

Chains worked very well. They were easy to install and they provided good traction.

Item arrived as described. Customer service was top notch. There was an issue with chains being on backorder and they took care of me as quickly as possible. I would buy from them again




by:

These bad boys eat through snow like a sumo wrestler at a buffet table.... They bite into ice and snow like a grizzly feasting on salmon. Definitely take the time to learn to put these on and actually put them on before you need them!! Helpful online videos if this is your first prom dance...

As in all things in life.. the best time to sell a home, car, watch or whatever is BEFORE YOU HAVE to! This supplier is great, the product is great, I need them for a trip this coming December, thats why I bought them now.

Review from a similar All Square with Cam in Tire Chains


Shipping was extremely fast , received my order in 2 days . Chains are high quality and should last a long time. Bought these for all 4 tires of my ‘01 Ford F-350 , tires are BFG All Terrains Lt285-75-R16. They fit perfectly, will probably be cutting 2 links off of the backside where the two ends hook together. The chains came.2 per sack with a cam tightening tool in each sack. I modified the tool to make it easier to use when your hands are frozen.




by:

Review from a similar All Square with Cam in Tire Chains


I bought the chains, the Titan chain adjuster #TCMA3 and the cam tightening tool and all work great. The chains fit my 245 60/R20 tires just as expected. I used the drape over method to test out the chains, but I would probably try to roll onto them in practice because the tire is so big, there's some space between cross chains when I brought the ends together. I could probably just drive a bit and then retighten them.

Review from a similar All Square with Cam in Tire Chains


Hi Carol,

The chain packaging was
op0ened and looked pre-used with holes in the sack as well.

There were no cable ends included to pull the chains over the tires so I am unsure these are correct for 235/55 R20 tires as listed. For now will use another vehicle, I may need to exchange thes, ideally that will not be a problem for you guys.

thank you!

Review from a similar All Square with Cam in Tire Chains


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.

Review from a similar All Square with Cam in Tire Chains


Not impressed with pewag chains at all why In the hell would you put cams on the inside of the chains think there engineers needs to get the hell out of the office & come see just how the real world works I was very impressed with the customer service from etrailer no complaints with them just pewag




by:

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.

Quality made chains are priceless! We run Pewag chains on our trucks and equipment and get great life and performance from the all square chains.

My item has only been in my possession approximately 4 hours have not checked to see how it fits yet.. the etrailer already chomping for a review so I'll go ahead and give it to em.. oh look they want photos to ?LOL? Not sure what I'm supposed to take a photo of? it's dark outside! I think all this junk started with China's social rating jazz but Who knows? so far so good

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


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.


Comments
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.

  • Tire Chain Recommendation for 2016 Ram 3500 with 285-60-20 Tire Size
    For your tire size of 285/60-20 on your 2016 Ram 3500 we have the Pewag Tire Chains part # PWE3231SC which are a confirmed fit. While these are considered on-road style chains the links are large enough that they would work too in an off-road environment where there is snow. Be sure to check the owners manual of your truck to determine if there are any tire chain restrictions.

  • Tire Chain Recommendation and Installation for 35x12.5R18 and 305/60R18 Tires
    For the 35x12.5R18, or the 305/60R18, the easiest to install and adjust chain would be the Pewag All Square Snow Tire Chains, # PWE3231SC. Make sure the engine is off and the vehicle parking brake is on before installation. First, after taking the chains from the bag, you will lay them out flat on the ground and remove any tangles or twists in the links.

  • Tire Chains for Wide 315/75R16 Tires
    For your large 315/75R16 tires I recommend going with a set of chains that has square links. Square links offer the best traction in snow and ice as well as for off road applications (for applicable chains). I recommend the Pewag chains # PWE3231SC. These chains not only offer square links and excellent traction but they are also reversible. If and when one side wears out you just flip them over and its like a whole new set of chains. I have linked a video review of these chains for you. Be...

    I don't show the # PWE3229SC as being a fit for a 285/60-20 tire. The correct Pewag All Square Snow Tire Chains for that size would be part # PWE3231SC. The square chain links will give a really good bite on snow or ice for superior traction, and the cam tighteners allow the chains to get a snug fit on the tire. These would be an excellent choice for snowy roads in mountainous areas. If you click the provided link, you can see a product demonstration video featuring the Pewag # PWE3231SC.

  • What Tire Chain Will Fit My 295/70-18 Mud Tires On My 2019 Toyota Tundra
    I took a look at your 2019 Toyota Tundra owner's manual. It states that your tire chains should be 5 mm on the side and 6.3 mm across the chain. The pewag All Square Snow Tire Chains with Cam Tighteners for Wide-Base Tires - 1 Pair, part # PWE3231SC, comes closest to this sizing. This tire chain measures 5.6 mm in all links. If you decide to use these tire chains, you do so at your own risk. I have included a product description link and a video review link below.
