Expert Answers about Audi Tire Chains


  • Recommended Tire Chains for a 2018 Audi Q5 Quattro
  • Between those options I recommend the Titan Chain, part # TC2317. Actually, these are the chains I would've recommended for you even if you hadn't already narrowed it down. Both the Titan chains and the Glacier cables you mentioned, part # PW2019C, are Class S compatible, which means they're designed to be used when there isn't much clearance between the tires and the vehicle so they'll both fit. The reason I like the Titans so much more is becasue they're actually chains and not cables....

  • Recommendation for Snow Socks or Chains on 2014 Audi Q7 and 2003 Lincoln Navigator
  • The ISSE Hybrid Snow Socks - Size 72 # TCH72 referenced in your question are confirmed to fit the 265/50-19 size tires that are on your 2014 Audi Q7. These snow socks will help you to safely navigate snowy or icy roads by providing traction for your tires. I was unable to find any information on the 215/70-19 tire size that you mentioned having on your Lincoln Navigator. It looks like the typical tire size on this vehicle is a 255/70-18. We do not have a snow sock available that is designed...

  • Could K-Summit Tire Chains fit 2017 Audi Q5 with 235/55 R19 Tires
  • If there was a set of tire chains that were going to be a fit for a vehicle that the manufacturer stated that chains shouldn't be used it's the Konig K-Summits like the part # TH02230K66 that you referenced as they do not drape over the inside of the tire's sidewall so they don't require any clearance there. If you are in an area that requires tire chains I'd show these to your Audi dealer and ask if they think these would be an issue. Most likely you'd be fine but you have to clear...

  • Correct Konig XG12 Tire Chain Size for Tire 235/55-19
  • We get all of our fit info from the tire chain manufacturers. If they changed a fit and list the 250 # TH01594250 now as the correct fit this would be the chains to use. I checked with Konig and this is the correct size.

  • Are Rubber Adjusters Needed for Cable Tire Chains on a 2011 Audi Q5 with 235/55-19 Sized Tires
  • Cable chains, like the Titan Chain Cable Tire Chains part # TC2019, do not have any type of tightening built into them so rubber adjusters are almost always needed. For adjusters I recommend the Glacier Multi-Arm, part # PW103. I like the design with the metal ring in the middle because if one arm were to break you still have 5 other arms to keep the chains tight on your tires. The cable chains are for very limited use and really won't supply a lot of traction for you. If you plan...

  • Tire Chains for 255/40-19 Tires on a 2016 Audi A6
  • I was not able to find an online version of the owner's manual for your 2016 Audi A6 but you will need to review the tire chains section of the manual for any requirements when using tire chains on your vehicle. For a set of tire chains that will fit the 255/40-19 tires on your vehicle the Konig Self-Tensioning, Low-Pro Snow Tire Chains part # TH04115240 are an excellent option. The Konig Self-Tensioning Chains are very easy to install and have anti-scratch nylon bumpers that will protect...

  • 2018 Audi S3 Tire Chain Recommendation for Size 235/40/18
  • The correct Thule EZ fit tire chains for your tire size of 235/40-18 is the part # TH04115100 actually and not the one you mentioned. These chains are amazing. They install in literally seconds and will give you great traction. Be sure to check the owners manual of your 2018 Audi S3 for any tire chain restrictions.

  • Where Should Tire Chains be Installed on a 2013 Audi Q5 All Wheel Drive
  • According to the vehicle owner's manual for your 2013 Audi Q5 all wheel drive tire chains can be used on the rear wheels only and are only to be used only on certain tire sizes. But the manual does not specify which tire sizes and only says to consult an Audi dealer for those specific sizes. The manual goes on to say that the chains "must have low-profile links and must not be thicker than 0.53 inch (13 .5 mm), including the lock." This means that you will want to lock at Class S rated...

  • Class S Compatible Tire Chains on 2012 Audi Q5 and 2012 Volvo XC60 with 235/60-18 Sized Tires
  • The Glacier Chains # PW2117V are confirmed to fit the 235/60-18 sized tires on both your vehicles. They are Class S compatible, meaning they have at least 37 mm of clearance between the top of the tire tread and the wheel well and at least 15 mm between the tire's sidewall and the vehicle. I can't recommend you go against your owner's manuals but these chains will fit the tire size.

  • Tire Chain Recommendation for Tire Size 255/45R20 on 2014 Audi Q5
  • We have plenty of tire chains that fit your tire size of 255/45R20. I attached a link to a page that has all of them. If clearance is tight like I would imagine on your vehicle the best solution is going to be the K-Summit chains part # TH02230K66.

  • Tire Cable Recommendation for Fitting Tire Size 245/40-18

  • Low Clearance Tire Chain Recommendation for 2014 Audi Allroad with 245/45/R18
  • For low profile tire chains that fit your tire size of 245/45/R18 I would highly recommend the Thule Easy Fit tire chains part # TH04115104. These chains are my favorite because they only require 9 mm of inner clearance, they have a 5 year warranty, but mainly because of how easy they are to install. Some chains are somewhat difficult to install, which is a pain when you consider the weather conditions you will be in when needing to install them. These chains on the other hand install...

  • Pewag Tire Chain Availability For 2016 Audi Q3 With 255/40R19 Tires
  • The Pewag Servo RS Self-Tensioning Snow Tire Chains # PWRS80 are not a fit for your 255/40R19 tires. There are not any Pewag options available for your specific tire size other than their lower end Glacier Chains made of low-carbon steel instead of the titanium alloy steel of the chains you mentioned. I recommend checking your owners manual for any specifics regarding tire chain limitations. I tried to check for you but Audi requires a VIN number to view the manuals online. I...

  • Snow Chain Recommendation for 2013 Audi A6 AWD with Summer Tires 255/35R20
  • The Thule Chains part # TH2004205106 that you referenced have been confirmed as a fit for your 2013 Audi A6 with 255/35R20 size tires. For an AWD drive vehicle ideally you will run chains on all four wheels as that will provide you with maximum traction for stopping, turning, and accelerating. If you did choose to only go with one set of chains you will need to put the chains on the main drive axle. Typically for an SUV this is the rear axle, but your owners manual will be able to tell...

  • Tire Chain Recommendation for a 2015 Audi Q5 With Limited Clearance
  • I have a tire chain solution for the limited clearance your having with your tire and Audi Q5. I recommend the Thule K-Summit Snow Chains # TH02230K66, because this chain sits on only the tire treads, leaving alloy wheels and the inside of the tire wall untouched. The K-Summit Chains would be the best option to reduce the potential for damage on the vehicle. I was unable to confirm but your owners manual will tell you if you will need chains on both sets of tires or just one. Ideally,...

  • Tire Chains for a 2016 Audi S4 with 255/35-19 Tires
  • I think the dealer might be pulling your chain (pun intended). Once I was able to get to the Audi parts website to look up tire chains there was nothing special about the chains they have. I am thinking that the vehicle requires Class S chains but I was unable to access the owner's manual for a 2016 Audi S4. Check your owner's manual for more specific information on tire chains. We have many Class S tire chains available, some that only mount to the outside and tread of the tires so...

  • Snow Chain Recommendation for a 2012 Audi Q5 with 255/45-20 Tires
  • The Titan snow chain part # TC2029 has been confirmed as a fit for the 255/45-20 size tires you have on your 2012 Audi Q5. The adjusters part # TCOA2 that you referenced would also be the correct part to use with these chains as well. Ideally you would put chains on all of the wheels of your vehicle or the best traction. However, if you only want to use one set of chains you would need to have them installed on the primary drive wheels of the vehicle. Lastly you would need to check...

  • Class S/Low Profile Snow Chain Recommendation for 2011 Audi Q5 w/ 235/55R19 Tires
  • Looks like you did your homework and have a good idea on exactly what you need. The Titan Chain part # TC2317 would be perfect for you. The price is great on these chains, they are pretty easy to install, and will actually work really well if you do need them. These chains are S rated as well like your owners manual says you would need. I attached a review video for these chains for you to check out as well.

  • Titan Tire Chains # TC2828CAM Seem to Fit Too Loose on 275/45-20 Tires on 2007 Audi Q7
  • Thank you for your recent purchase of two pairs of Titan Chain Snow Tire Chains # TC2828CAM. These chains do fit your specified 275/45-20 tire size, which is in the middle of the range of sizes these chains will fit. All tire chains are designed to fit more than one tire size, so it is not unusual for variances in fit - the slightly loose hold even after the cams are tightened. First make sure that when you apply the chains that they are centered on the tires from left-to-right. This...

  • Snow Chain Recommendation for a 2015 Audi Q5 with 235/55/R19 Tires
  • The first thing you need to do is consult the owners manual of your 2015 Audi Q5 to see if there are any restrictions on the use of snow chains. We do have Thule chains that would work great on your 235/55R19 size tires assuming Audi says you are okay to use chains. A great option that works great is the Thule K Summit Chains like part # TH02230K66. These also install easily and have nothing draped over the inside of the tire so tire clearance issues are virtually non-existant. I...

  • Snow Tire Chain Recommendation with Rim Protection for a 2008 Audi A4
  • I have a few sets of snow tire chains that will work with the 235/40ZR18 tires on your 2008 Audi A4, but the Thule CB12 tire chains that you referenced do not offer rim protection and they will be too small for your tire size. The Thule tire chains that will work for your car are the Easy Fit CU9 Tire Chains, # TH04115100, and the Konig CG9 Tire Chains, # TH00023100. These are higher end tire chains that include many great features that traditional tire chains simply don't offer. Another...

  • Snow Tire Chains for a 2010 Audi Q7 with 295/35-21 Tires
  • You will need to consult the vehicle owners manual to determine if tire chains can be used and if they can if there are any restrictions. If the tires are not the factory size then you will also want to contact an Audi dealer to determine if chains can be used. If they can then the only chains we have for a 295/35-21 tire are the K-Summit chains you have referenced, # TH02230K66. These chains require zero millimeters of clearance on the back side of the tires. I have included some tire...

  • Recommendation for Snow Tire Chains or Cables for 2004 Audi A6 Avant Quattro
  • You will first want to check your owners manual or with the Audi dealer to determine if you can use snow tire chains on your 2004 Audi A6 Avant Quattro, or if there are any limitations. For the 235/45R17 tire size the Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains, part # PW1038, is the part number you would need for the cable style chains like the part number you have referenced. I would also recommend the Thule CB12 Snow Chains, part # TH01221100. These are dual-sided, D-shape chain links that...
