Expert Answers about Tire Chains


  • Wide Based Tire Chain Recommendation for Truck with Tire Size 265/75-17
  • Glacier does recommend their wide based tire chain part # PWH3229SC for the tire size you have of 265/75-17. Since you have an offroad style of tire this would be a great choice to match that since the tread is probably wider and more squared off than non-off road style tires. Be sure to check the owners manual of your truck for any tire chain restrictions as well.

  • Snow Cable Recommendation for Tire Size 225/65R17 on 2015 Subaru Outback
  • Tire chain fits are very specific. If the size isn't listed on that chains that you have then they aren't going to fit even if it seems really close. The safe option is the Glacier cables part # PW1042 that you referenced which would fit and work well.

  • Tire Chain Recommendation for 2006 GMC Sierra with Tire Size 265/70R17
  • For a set of cables that fit your tire size of 265/70R17 we have the PW2121V which would fit and work well. Or for a set of chains with similar clearance requirements the Titan Alloy Snow Chains # TC2326 would be a great option too. So the other set of chains you mentioned part # TC2828CAM is V-bar style chain which will help quite a bit but it's geared towards icy conditions. For deep snow square links are the best as they cut through deep snow the best. So for that the part # TC2228SCAM...

  • Tire Chain Recommendation for 2018 Mazda CX-9 with 255/50-20 Tire Size
  • Our tire chain fitguide is based on tire sizes we know are available for vehicles. We do not verify if the manufacturer of the vehicle recommends tire chains or not. The manufacturer of the vehicle is the final authority on whether or not chains can be used though. We have found that if you check with a dealer near mountains that require tire chains sometimes you'll get a different recommendation. A lot of times they'll let Class S chains be used which don't require quite as much clearance....

  • Tire Chain Use on Tandem Axle Horse Trailer with Electric Brakes
  • If your tandem axle horse trailer has brakes on both axles then ideally you will want to install compatible tire chains on both axles, all four tires. This will do more to avoid the trailer trying to get ahead of you (!) on a slippery road surface. Even if you do not need the chains to slow the trailer they will still help to avoid lateral movement of the trailer on the road. Laws vary by state concerning use of tire chains on trailers. California and Oregon, for example, require chains...

  • Snow Chain Compatibility for 265/75R16 Tires and Other Tire Size Fits
  • Unfortunately those two size tires will require different snow chains. I've looked up some chains like # TC2028 that will fit 245/85-16 tires and 275/65R16 tires, but the 245/75-16 are not a confirmed fit for chains that also fit 265/75R16 tires. The diameter, width, and sidewall height are simply too different. If you click on chains that fit your tire size and scroll to the bottom of that product you will see the other tire size fits for those chains.

  • Recommended Tire Chains for a 2016 Jeep Renegade with 215/65 R16 Size Tires
  • You aren't alone. A lot of vehicle manufacturers are erring on the side of caution and putting dislcaimers on using tire chains. Basically, this keeps them from being responsible if any damage is caused by the chains. It doesn't mean using chains will definitely damage the vehicle. But you do need to be careful when selecting them. I recommend choosing tire chains that are Class S compatible. Class S chains are designed for vehicle that have a small amount of clearance between the...

It's much more expensive, but the Konig K-Summits part # TH02230K66 are the best option. These require no clearance at all due to how they install, are easy to install, and will last much longer than the Titans. This would be basically the best option you'll find.

  • Snow Tire Recommendation for 2013 Buick Enclave with Tire Size 255/55-20
  • For your tire size of 255/55-20 with tight wheel clearances the Konig K-Summit part # TH02230K77 would be the best option. This is the only tire chain that does not require any inner tire sidewall to frame clearance so it's the best option by far. I attached a picture of these chains installed for you to check out as well. You can see that no portion of the chain drapes over the inner sidewall of the tire.

  • Recommended Snow Tire Chains for 2004 AWD Lexus RX330 and Manufacturer Installation Requirements

  • Can Tire Chains be Used on Bare Pavement
  • I highly recommend waiting to install your tire chains until right before entering snow covered roads where they are needed. Driving on bare pavement with tire chains, even if staying at low speeds, can greatly reduce the chains' lifespan by prematurely wearing them down. Using chains on bare pavement can also cause damage to the road itself. Also keep in mind that the wear from using them on bare roads can potentially damage the chains to the point of them failing or breaking, which in...

  • Are K-Summit Tire Chains Good on Plowed/Dry Roads with Occasional Ice and Snow Patches

For those situations you could use something like emergency chains # 288-07413. This will allow most of the tire to grip while still offering some traction for snow or ice.

Since tire chains are designed to fit specific tire sizes and those tires have specific load ratings you should have no issues as long as you are within your load weight rating and you are driving the recommended speed by law with tire chains on (or no more than 30 mph with these tire chains). Be sure to check your owner's manual and any local laws about the use of tires chains as well.
