  • Is 22mm Lug Nut Adapter Needed for Konig Tire Chains on 2018 Volvo XC90 with 275/40-21 Tires?
  • For your 2018 Volvo XC90 with 275/40-21 tires, I can't 100% confirm that you won't need the 22mm adapter, but chances are extremely slim.

  • Should Snow Chains Be Installed on All 4 Tires for Vehicle Traveling through Mountains
  • Ideally you run chains on all four tires to be the safest. Some people get away with one set, but if you are going to be travelling through snowy mountains with tight corners you are definitely a candidate for chains on all 4 wheels. That said the traction is so low in snow that running only one set is not going to damage the transmission like different size tires would on dry pavement. What is your tire size? With that I'll pick you out the correct size chains and give you a couple...

  • Tire Chain Recommendation for Icy Gravel Road for Tire Size P265/70R17
  • The V-bar style of tire chain is the best for icy conditions like what you mentioned. Their design goes in and breaks up the ice giving you better traction. So for your tire size of 265/70-17 you'd want the part # PWH2828SC which will work great for icy gravel. I attached an install video for this chain set on a similar GM truck as yours for you to check out as well.

  • How Many Tires do you Install the ISSE Hybrid Snow Socks # TCH58 on a Honda Ridgeline
  • When installing any kind of traction device you will first want to consult your owner's manual on which tires it is acceptable to use them on. The ISSE Hybrid Snow Socks # TCH58 that you referenced don't do a whole lot and are pretty much used only when there are no other options available. I recommend checking your owner's manual to see if tire chains can be used instead as they will provide better traction and last longer.

For adjusters I recommend the Glacier Multi-Arm, part # PW103.

Since the rear wheels are not drive wheels or on a steering axle there isn't much benefit to having them on the rear.
