Note: To determine whether you can use snow chains on your vehicle, or if they might affect your ABS/EPS functionality, consult your owner's manual.

The pewag Snox Pro chains are great winter weather chains if you live in an area where you're likely to get periodic snow and ice. They're durable, give you constant traction - and they're lightweight and compact, so they store in your vehicle nicely too. If you're more likely to see seriously icy conditions, you may want a chain with V-bar links that can really bite into the ice to give you maximum traction.

With these chains, installation is a snap. There's no need to crawl around on the ground to make connections - just tug the chains around your tire to get them into place, and then drive off. The Snox will self-tension while you're driving to tighten perfectly around your tires. Once you stop driving, the tensioners release, making these chains equally simple and quick to pull off when you reach dry pavement.

Class S Designation

SAE Class S tire chains are designed for use on passenger vehicles with restricted wheel-well clearance. Most newer cars, vans, and small trucks - especially those with large aftermarket tires - will require Class S chains. If you're unsure about the class of your vehicle, consult your vehicle's owner's manual.

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

Confirming Your Fit

If you know your tire size, you may think you won't need to test fit your new chains. But there are a lot of variables that can affect whether chains will fit your specific tires, including your tire type, the amount of air pressure in the tire, the amount of tread wear, and the tire manufacturer. You'll also need to know how much clearance is in your wheel well, which you can determine by measuring from your tire tread to the sidewall of the wheel well.

We recommend that you order chains as early in the season as possible to give yourself plenty of time to test fit the chains and reorder if needed. This way, you won't be stuck out in the cold later with snow chains that don't fit.

You can test fit these chains in your garage or driveway, but you'll want to wait until there's snow on the ground to actually drive with them. Likewise, if you're out in the snow and come across bare pavement, you'll want to pull over and remove the chains. Even low-profile chains can cause damage to the bare pavement, your garage floor, or your vehicle if they break from the wear of riding on a harsh surface.

Installation of pewag Snox Pro Self-Tensioning Snow Tire Chains

Grasp both ends of the red cord and pull outward to activate the self-tensioning system

1. Grasp the red cord on each side of the self-tensioning device and pull outward to activate.

Place the red self-tensioning system at the back of the tire and drape the chain along the face of the wheel to position the red bungee at the bottom of the tire

2. Position the red cord over your tire, pulling it to the back. Then tug the cord down to fit it around the bottom of the tire.

3. Drive forward 1/4 of a tire revolution, keeping your wheels straight.

Once the bungee has been placed completely around the tire, pull on your assembly to make sure the chains are snug

4. Pull the rest of the chain around your tire so that the cross chains are positioned on top of the tire tread.

5. Once the chains are properly positioned, drive forward. The Snox Pro chains will automatically tighten and center themselves as you drive. No manual adjustment is necessary.

Tensioners automatically disengage

The tensioners automatically disengage when your car comes to a stop. To remove the chains, you can simply pull them off, or you can press the quick-release latch, which provides more slack in the chains to allow even faster removal.

Quick Tips:

  • Lengthen the life of snow chains by drying them after each use before you store them.
  • Check out our installation kit with safety lights and a kneeling pad (PO34FRK) to make things a little easier when you're installing chains out in the snow.

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.

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

pewag Snox Pro Tire Chains - Diamond Pattern - Square Links - Self Tensioning - 1 Pair - PWSXP560

Average Customer Rating:  4.4 out of 5 stars   (66 Customer Reviews)

Just stretch these Snox over your tires to install, and the chains will automatically tension around your wheels as you drive. Diamond pattern and square links deliver a smooth ride. Includes anti-scratch bumpers. Ideal for snow and light ice.


Fit snugly. Will be a little difficult in the snow but with a pair of gloves on it is doable. The red plastic rim protectors would protect rim from metal on metal contact. However, with my M-sport rims and Pirelli Cinturato P7 tires, the red plastic doesn't even come into contact with the rim due to the extended lip of the tire...but this does mean that the chain touches the outside surface of the tire--see pics. A little off putting scarring the sticky looking surface of the tire...but it is inevitable.

On the inside of the wheel/tire, my concern was contact with the knuckle, strut, end link, stabilizer, etc. It does get close to the stabilizer end link, but doesn't pictures are shown before self centering while the spacing to end link would only get greater as I installed in worst case scenario to compare.

1996 Chevrolet Corvette

I drive a 1996 Corvette and have for the past 20 years - year round. And that makes driving near impossible in Connecticut winters and hilly terrains. Until I got my Pewag chains. When the snow accumulates, on go my Pewags and away I go. Snow covered roads, no problem, up and down hills, no problem. I can put my Pewags on both tires in less than ten minutes and I am good to go. Great product! I highly recommend Pewag chains.


This is a gift, so I have no way of knowing yet if the chains are a great product. I am however quite pleased with the quick arrival and customer service. Thank you!

2012 Kia Optima

I ordered the SXP560 chains but received the SXP570 chains which are not for the size tires I have. I called customer service and they said they would resend the correct size and also send a mailing label to return the incorrect ones which would take about 1 hour to receive. However it's been about 12 hours and I still haven't received the return label. Note: If I receive the proper chains I will submit a new review.


I have used them a few times now on snow and ice and they are great! Definitely worth the money! They are easy to put on and take off. Would be very helpful in emergency situations. Putting them on takes a bit more time than taking them off, but still just a few minutes. I was very surprised by how much traction they gave me in snowy and icy situations. These chains seem like they are durable and reliable. Definitely recommend! Also they delivered fast, which was good because I ended up needing them right after I got them.

2012 Chevrolet Cruze

I can't give a complete review because we haven't tried them yet. Need to see how they work in the snow first but my first impression is a little less than satisfied. I have used may snow chains in my life but the material of the chains don't seem to be very strong and I don't know if they will hold up to the road test. I'm not feeling very confident that they will last one use. I bought these chains for my daughter's car and I love the ease of installation. I hope they get her home during her winter break from college.

2001 Lexus LS 430

I mounted my Pewag Snow Chains (PWSXP560) today on a dry run. I was very impressed with the method of installation, as well as the ease of taking them off. I purchased them because of a very bad experience I had with chains previously. I was very uncomfortable driving in conditions that would require chains. With these chains I have confidence in using them should conditions require them.


They worked great the first couple times we used them, but the elastic wore out quickly and had to cut one off.


Product is obviously of extreme high quality. I believe I will be very happy with the performance as well (we haven't used them yet). I expect the installation to be as simple as shown in the video(s).

2018 Honda Civic

The chains are excellent, very quick to get on and off and they got me through the snow and ice with no problems. I definitely recommend these!

Chevrolet Colorado

Got the shipment in great time. Won't know how the units work until the winter...
probably in Colorado going over one of the high passes.

2017 Kia Niro

Very pleased with the fit and ease of installation. Met my expectations.

They were not easier to put on, and they promptly came off all together. I would have done better with a standard old school chain.


Great product and perfect fit. I would buy it again if needed be and would recommend to all. Looks great too...


Received chains today and put them on the wheels in the comfort of warm garage. It was relatively easy process. I expect it to be similar on the cold road.

2003 Toyota Camry

I haven't used them yet but they look like what I wanted. Customer Service was very helpful and quick to respond.


Fast service. Excellent follow up.



These chains are amazing to say the least. 2012 GMC Terrain never needed to put chains on it, but we decided to take it on a snow trip. I have used chains in the past on other vehicles and all have been so hard to put on, on so many different levels. It made me hate to have to use them. Now the Pewag Snox Pro are the best chains I have ever used. WOW!!! They were on in less than 5-10 minutes and then taking them off was even easier. One snap of the lock, a few rough tugs, and pulled forward. Shook them of and packed them back up in the awesome case. Smooth ride considering I had chains on and great traction on snow and ice! I did not know I could love chains so much!


Excellent install instructions. For tire chains, easy to install, use, remove, store.


Only had to use the tire chains once last winter for a short distance over the coast range in Oregon, which I think is a success. The chains appear to be well made, are easy to install and they performed well. I would buy them again.


The 2nd time I used the chains, the tensioner on one chain would not release, so I could not flip the chains off, and I had to pay a roadside chain removal guy to cut them off. The 90-day warranty seems unreasonable for the price of these chains. I'm not going to buy Pewag chains to replace them.


Clever design and great instructions. I did a test mount. Have not yet used in snow.


I got to test them out for the first time after 4 inches of snow going up a long, steep gravel road full of switchbacks and ice patches in Blue Ridge Mountains. They performed wonderfully and were pretty easy to put on. My only concern are the blue plastic parts that could be a weak point.
