Expert Answers about BMW Tire Chains


  • Recommended Tire Chains for 2015 BMW X5
  • Typically tire chains should go on the drive axle of the vehicle, and some vehicles will require Class S compatible chains.

The best place to find information on chains is going to be the owner's manual of your vehicle. With that said, for the front tires I recommend using the Konig Self-Tensioning Snow Tire Chains - Diamond Pattern - D Link - XG12 Pro - Size 255...

  • I checked out the online owner's manual for your 2011 BMW X3, and it says that tire chains should only be placed on the rear tires of your vehicle, so that's what you'll want to do. We do have a great option for chains, assuming you have the standard 245/50-18 tires (I do recommend checking just to be sure), and those are the Konig Standard Snow Tire Chains - Diamond Pattern # TH01571245.

  • Recommended Tire Chains to Fit 245/50 R18 Size Tires on a 2017 BMX X3 35i
  • The letter "P" in front of the tire size just indicates that they're designed to be used on a passenger vehicle. Also, when your 2017 BMW X3's manual states that you need "fine link" chains it means there isn't a lot of clearance between the tires and any parts of the vehicle so you need to use chains that are designed for this. Chains are given a Class to designate how much clearance is required for them to be installed. Since your manual specifically states to use "fine link" I recommend...

  • Recommended Class S Snow Tire Chains for a 2016 BMW 3 Series with 225/45 R18 Size Tires
  • Tire chains are classified by a letter class to determine how much clearance is required on a vehicle for that particular chain to fit. Since your 2016 BMW 3 Series states, in the owner's manual, to use "fine-link" chains I recommend going with Class S chains, which require the least amount of clearance. I recommend the Titan Chain, part # TC1550, to fit your 225/45 R18 sized tires. These are great chains that don't break the bank and are pretty easy to install. They also don't need...

  • Tire Chain Recommendation for a 2012 BMW 535i with 275/3519 Tires
  • First, if you cannot find any additional chain information in the owners manual, I recommend contacting a BMW dealer and speaking with a technician. Most vehicles like yours with the larger rims do require Class S chains if chains can be used at all. Tire chains should be placed on the main drive wheels. Since your 535i is rear wheel drive then you will want chains to fit the 275/35/19 rear tires. If you have very little clearance between the tires and wells, or the tires and suspension...

  • The Thule Premium Self-Tensioning K-Summit XXL Snow Tire Chains # TH02230K66 are going to be the best tire chains for your 2017 BMW X5. The most likely reason BMW doesn't recommend using chains at all is becuase of the lack of clearance between the tires and any parts of the vehicle. The biggest advantage of the K-Summits is that they ride on the vehicle's tread and don't require any internal clearance. Another feature of the K-Summit chains is how easy they are to install.

The speed limit is in place because going at a higher speed can cause the sock (or chains or cables) to start to come off of the tire due to the speed.

  • Tire Chain Recommendation for 2015 BMW M6 with 265/35-20 Tires
  • Your first step when considering tire chains on any vehicle is a check of the owner's manual for any guidance or restrictions regarding their use.

Before purchasing any tire chain check your vehicle's manual carefully and if in doubt speak to your local dealership. The Titan low-profile tire chains you referenced, part # TC1555, are indeed a correct fit for one...

  • The Pewag Tire Chains # PWSXV580 that you referenced are confirmed to fit the 245/50R18 tires you have on your 2014 BMW X3.

  • Recommended Tire Chains for 2015 BMW X3 with 275/35-20 Sized Tires
  • I looked at an online copy of the owner's manual for your 2015 BMW X3 and it does not list 275/35 R20 as a tire size. If they're aftermarket tires you might want to check with BMW to see what size they say to use because the manual says not to use chains with anything larger than 245/45 R19. With that being said I recommend getting the lowest profile chain that will fit your tires which are the Konig K-Summit K45 # TH02230K45. They ride only on the tire tread so there is no internal...

  • Tire Chains for a 2012 BMW X3 with 245/50-18 Tires

  • Recommended Low Profile Snow Cables For 2014 BMW X5

  • Choosing the Right Tire Chain Size for 2020 BMW X5
  • It depends. A tire size consists of three measurements. For example, your 2020 BMW X5 has a common tire size of 275/45-20. That means your tire is 265 millimeters wide, the height of your sidewall is 45% of your width, and you have a wheel diameter of 20". If you have a rim size of 21", but your rubber tire is small, you can still fit into the smaller chains. One of the tire chains that fits this wheel is Konig Self-Tensioning Snow Tire Chains - XG12 Pro # th2004705265. If you scroll...

  • Because tire chains have a speed limit while in use (typically 30 to 40 miles per hour, vehicle owners manual may also have a speed requirement) traction with the front tires is not an issue to be concerned about. At low speeds, even in icy or snowy conditions, your tires will not be an issue even though they are not all weather tires. If you are concerned about the traction of the front wheels then going with a set of snow tires on the fronts would be the way to go. I have linked our...
