pewag Servo RS Installation Instructions

How to Install pewag Servo RS Snow Chains

  1. Spread the chain around the back of the tire.
  2. Connect the cable on the back side of the tire.
  3. Pull the chain over the top and around to the front of the tire. Connect the servo device to the inner, tensioning chain with the top-mounted, dual hook.
  4. Fit the chain around the tire, making sure that the servo is in the front.
  5. Connect the inner chain to the outer traction chain at the bottom of the tire using the large red hook.
  6. Activate the servo device to ratchet the chain tightly into place.

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 the use of Class S chains.

SAE Class S Clearance Diagram

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 chains, 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 the width
  2. (60) - gives you the aspect ratio (sidewall height as percentage of width)

I have a 2015 Ford Cmax which in the manual states that no chains or cables are to be used due to limited clearance. I bought these anyway and have used them twice with no issues. I hate putting on chains or cables but these are fairly easy. The advantage to these is that they can be put on without moving the car. First time was on a steep driveway, second on a mountain turnout with deep snow. They auto tensioned as described and a fairly smooth ride compared to typical cables or chains. Your video convinced me to try them even though Ford doesn't recommend anything...which means I'd have to use a different car to go skiing.

The package came on time as you said it would! The directions were pictures with little text in a vinyl/plastic insert that fits nicely in the case. Watching the video helped a lot, should have looked at first before I installed one. I did it right but the video made it faster the second time! The case is compact and has a rigid separator plate that keeps the two chains separate. The service on the telephone was superb rate it a 10. This was reassuring since their are so many choices. The chains fit like a glove and now I hope I never need them!

Excellent and easy to install snow chains! Five minute install. Perfect for driving on ice and slick roads where my UHP-All Season tires don't work well.

Review from a similar Servo RS in Tire Chains


First, I thought reviews were about using the product (Pewag tire chains); not about giving it 4 stars before you even took it out of the box. Now for a review from some one who actually put them on a tire. They are certainly a big improvement in tire chains. But if you are putting them on a sedan with limited wheel-well access you better do it first in your garage. The inside hook is a disaster to connect; especially, with limited access and visibility. The inside hook definitely need to be replaced with something simpler to connect the two ends of the inside chain together. My reason for a 3 star rating. Next, to get the chains properly laid out on the tire takes some doing. That said, the cable on the auto tensioner need to be a 1/4” longer. That’s right, the difference between and easy connection of the auto tensioner and 5 minutes spent trying to get the chain ends closer. Finally, and really, really important, is how you remove the chains. Once you disconnect the chains, you do not want to just drop the chains off the back of the tire. There is a lot of chain and the auto tension cable to catch on some part of the front suspension preventing you from removing the chain. This ability to catch on something is aided by the plastic circular-shaped tubes that hold the back chain in a circle. I know; because it happened to me. O no! I thought for a while I was going to have to remove the tire to unhook the chain. Fortunately, I was able to reach over the tire and unhook the auto-tension cable that was hooked around a part of the car’s front suspension.

Review from a similar Servo RS in Tire Chains


I have never been more pleased with a purchase decision than I am with these snow chains. They fit my car perfectly and were easier to install than I expected. If you have ever used on-ground cable chains, you know there are three connections that must be made, plus any adjustments to the tension device. With these chains, the connections are easy and the self-tightening tension device is impressive. At first I was not interested in this feature, but after using it I can appreciate how it will keep the chains tight and secure. I was also impressed by the design of the carrying case. I expected it would be difficult to replace the chains in the case once removed. Wrong. They easily fit back into the handy plastic case. Further, the chains came with plastic gloves to slip over your your hands (even with winter gloves) to keep your hands and lower arms clean. It's a bit odd to be so excited about a product that I hope NOT to use. But I drive to ski resorts all over the West and encounter chain restrictions often. Although I have all-wheel drive, I don't have snow tires and recent chain restrictions in Mammoth, CA require chains or 4-WD with snow tires on all wheels. Now, I'm actually looking forward to using the chains. I'm so pleased, I may purchase a second set for my wife's car. Finally, etrailer.com was great too work with. Their rep ( thanks Donna!) helped me find the right size chains for my wheels. Thanks so much!

Review from a similar Servo RS in Tire Chains


There are many types of tire chains available today. When you want reliable, relatively easy to install chains, this is a great choice. In addition, it appears that they will wear well. There is no available reliable data available on the strength of tire chains when high levels of horsepower are delivered through them. My personal experience is that my 300 hp pickup can easily break chains in this design category. I have never broken link chains with cam tighteners. Those conditions require the chain to be very snug. No looseness can be permitted. The link chains fail when hopping takes place. Little doubt that will be true for these as well. Avoiding hopping requires high skill and the willingness to say, I am turning around and going back. Given the chain design, it does run very smoothly. This will minimize the likelihood of hopping.

Review from a similar Servo RS in Tire Chains


I haven't used these yet, but I am very familiar with chains in general. I bought these to put on my wife's car, and wanted something easy for her to use. We put them on to teach her, and she was able to put them on pretty easily. I have used pewag truck tire chains, and if these are anything like them, they are great. 4 stars for ease of use. When I do use them, I'll update this review.

Review from a similar Servo RS in Tire Chains


Outstanding product! Very well-designed tire chain, quality components, easy to install, and terrific grip. I researched this purchase from some time and paid a little more for this quality product. We live in an area with very steep hills and quite a bit of snow and ice that goes unmanaged by the city. I figured these chains would be easy to install (I didn't look a the instructions before I took them out to put them on and had them on in 11 minutes), last a long time, not cause damage to my Lexus SUV, and provide excellent traction. They meet all my expectations.

These are easy to install, self-tension, work great on front and rear wheel drive vehicles, and offer rim protection to help protect the finish of the rims of your vehicle.
