Expert Answers about Honda Pilot Tire Chains


  • Can Snow Socks be Used on 245/60R18 Tires Instead of Tire Chains
  • You can use the ISSE Hybrid Snow Socks # TCH72 on your 2018 Honda Pilot with 245/60R18 tires if you like. They are a solid option for lighter snow or ice, so it really depends on the severity of the roads. If you know you will be experiencing a more dramatic/heavier snow or ice event, then I do recommend going with chains in order to maximize the grip and control. For chains that are easy to use and will provide the traction you need for your Pilot with 245/60R18 tires the best option...

  • Tire Chains with Rim Protection for Tire Size 245/50-20
  • In general the Titan tire chains part # TC2323 aren't known to damage the wheels but they do not have any rim protection. I don't believe you'd have any issue but if you wanted a set of chains that does have them would be the Konig Easy Fit Chains part # TH04115255 which is the easiest to install too as it only takes a few seconds to install and does not require crawling around in the snow.

  • Tire Chain Recommendation for 245/50-20 Size Tires on a 2017 Honda Pilot
  • We do have a few tire chains that will fit the 245/50-20 tires on your 2017 Honda Pilot. When I looked up the online owner's manual for your Pilot it said that you need to use Class S rated chains due to low clearance on the back side of your front tires where the chains need to be installed. For your application I recommend going with the Titan Chain Alloy Snow Tire Chains # TC2323 because they have square links configured in the diamond pattern so you'll get great traction and more...

  • Recommended Tire Chains for 245/50/20 Tires on 2016 Honda Pilot Touring Edition
  • The Titan Chain Snow Tire Chains w/ Cams for Wide Base Tires - Ladder Pattern - V-Bar Link # TC3810CAM are not Class S compatible, so they are not recommended according to your owners manual.

These chains are made of a high quality manganese nickel alloy steel. This...

  • Tire Chains for Trip to the Mountains in 2008 4WD Honda Pilot
  • In your owner's manual in the 'tire' section, Honda states that only Class S cable-style tire chains should be used on your Pilot. A class S chain will not extend more than 15mm above or to the inside of the tire, preventing the chain from coming into contact with any braking, suspension or steering components. Assuming you have 235/70-16 tires on your Pilot, I'd recommend the Glacier Cable Snow Chains # PW2119V. Since you may have limited need, if at all, I would recommend this economical...

  • Can AWD Vehicle Use Single Set of Tire Chains and Which Axle to Use them On
  • For all wheel drive vehicles you can typically get by with a single set of tire chains, but you will need to use them on the primary drive axle of the vehicle. Most likely for your 2016 Honda Pilot that will be the front axle but you will need to check the owners manual of the vehicle to determine which axle to use and if there are any other restrictions. Having chains on all 4 wheels will give you the best possible traction for stopping, turning and accelerating so it would be your...

  • Recommended Snow Tire Chains For Honda Pilot 2013 5DR 4WD-EX-L
  • The QCC Premium Cobra 1046P chains you mentioned are not the only option, they are just a recommended option from Honda due to limited clearance. We have other limited clearance options for your P235/60 R18 tires on your 2013 Honda Pilot 5DR 4WD EX-L. The Titan chains # TC2829CAM are confirmed to fit your tires, but I don't recommend them because they are not for the limited clearance that is labeled class S. I recommend the Pewag Snox Pro Self-Tensioning Snow Tire Chains - Diamond...

  • First, you will want to consult the vehicle owners manual for your 2005 Honda Pilot to determine if cables or chains can be used and if so if there are any restrictions or recommendations. We have answered a question before on a Honda Pilot with 235/70-16 tire size and the owners manual said SAE Class S cables only, no chains. 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...

  • Recommended Tire Chains for Use on 2008 Honda Pilot
  • I checked the online edition of the owner's manual for the 2008 Honda Pilot for any guidance or restrictions concerning use of tire chains. Some vehicle can use chains on only one axle or the other; and some vehicles can use chains only on specific tire sizes. Page 268 of the online manual indicates to use only special low-profile Class S type chains, which we do offer, along with rubber tensioners and then only on the front axle.

  • Installing Tire Chains on 2013 Honda Pilot
  • I took a look at the online version of the owner's manual for your 2013 Honda Pilot. Under the "Winter Tires" section of the manual it states that chains should ONLY be used on the front tires. The two most common tire sizes for your Honda Pilot are a 235/60-18 or 235/65-17. If you have one of these sizes on your vehicle I recommend the Titan Chain Alloy Snow Tire Chains # TC2319. These square-link chains feature integrated tensioners to allow for an easy yet secure installation. They...

  • Recommended Tire Chains for 2018 Honda Pilot with 20 inch Wheels
  • For your 2018 Honda Pilot with tire size 245/50-20 the tire chains Honda recommends tire chains that are Class S compatible. So you'd need a set like the Titan # TC2323 for occasional use. These chains are relatively easy to install, are Class S compatible, and will provide great traction. The ultimate solution though is the Thule Easy Fit # TH04115255 though. These chains are the best because they install literally in a few seconds, offer superior traction, and will last a very long time....

  • Recommended Tire Chains for a 2015 Honda Pilot SE
  • The Titan Chain Diagonal Alloy Cable Snow Tire Chains part # TC729DC are an excellent option for your 2015 Honda Pilot SE and would be exactly what I recommend using. They have both a v-shaped pattern for increased traction and ride quality as well as included tensioners which will keep the cables positioned correctly on the tires. The owner's manual states to only install these cables on the front two wheels so that is what I have to recommend doing as well. I would also test fit the...

  • Chains for 2017 Honda Pilot with Tire Size 245/60-18
  • All of our tire chains that fit your tire size 245/60-18 appear on the linked page. In the manual for your 2017 Honda Pilot (page 609) Honda recommends using lower-profile S-Class chains. This is a common requirement for passenger vehicles and we have this chain type. S-Class chains fit closer to the tires and require less clearance within the wheel wells; they will be less likely to contact components like brake lines and the suspension. You can install chains on your front tires only....

  • Snow Cable Recommendation for a 2013 Honda Pilot
  • Since your owners manual states to use cables instead of chains I cannot safely recommend you attempt to use chains as that might cause clearance issues. I would recommend the Snow Tire Chains # PWRS80for your P235/60R18 wheels. This is a cable chain setup that has rubber adjusters that provide constant tension. Check out the review video I attached for these chains also.

  • What Axle to Snow Chains Go On a 2008 Honda Pilot
  • You are correct, snow chains should always go on the drive axle of a vehicle. If your 2008 Honda Pilot is mainly front-wheel drive, but then will transfer power to the rear wheels when needed then you would want to have the chains on the front axles. I attached an FAQ article on snow chains for you to check out also.

  • Snow Tire Cable Recommendations for a 2006 Honda Pilot with 235/70-16 Tires
  • If the Pilot owners manual states that you must use Class S chains/cables then you must go by that recommendation. A class S chain or cable is going to require 15 mm or less of clearance around the tire. For your Pilot we have cables, # PW1042. The PW2119V that you have referenced are no longer available.

  • Recommended Tire Chains for 2006 Honda Pilot with Upgraded Rims
  • To keep the same dimensions of tire diameter and width on your 2006 Honda Pilot, you are correct that the 235/60R18 is the correct fit. This will keep your 29 inch diameter and 9.3 inch tire width while giving you the larger rims. Unfortunately we do not carry vehicle tires like you are seeking. I assume you are looking for some snow tire chains based on the product you asked the question from and the Pewag Snox Pro Self-Tensioning Snow Tire Chains # PWSXV580 are my recommendation...

  • Ideally you put a set of tire chains on all of the tires of your 2005 Honda Pilot. If you put a single set on your 2005 Honda Pilot you'd be able to get around but for maximum traction you'd be a set of the # TH01594247 on the front axle and the rear axle.

  • Tire Chain Recommendation for a 2012 Honda Pilot 4WD
  • You should have no problem with the performance of the Glacier Cable Snow Chains, # PW2016C, on your trip, but for superior strength and durability, I would recommend looking at the Pewag Brenta-C 4X4 Tire Chains, # PWXMR80V. The Pewag chains are made of a durable titanium alloy steel that will provide better durability and performance than the low-carbon steel and rubber of the cable style chains. A few things to keep in mind when using snow chains is not to exceed the maximum speed...

  • According to the owner's manual for your 2017 Honda Pilot, tire chains must be Class S compliant, used only on the front two wheels, and of a cable construction.

  • Can Two Vehicles with the Same Tire Size Use the Same Snow Chains/Cables
  • Tire chains/cables are recommended based on tire size. If you have the same size tire on both vehicles then a set confirmed to fit one would fit the other. You didn't mention the tire size that both vehicles have, but if the part # PW1046 is confirmed to fit that size and that is why you referenced this part number then it would fit both vehicles. You will still need to check the owners manual of both vehicles to determine if there are any tire chain restrictions.

  • Why Arent My Titan Chains # TC2526 Fitting on My 2014 Honda Pilot with 235/60-18 Tires?
  • Thanks so much for reaching out to us with a picture of your chains. I have a great solution for you.
