Expert Answers about Tire Chains


  • Snow Chain Recommendation for 2019 Subaru Forester Sport
  • I have a great solution for the tires of your 2019 Subaru Forester Sport that are either 225/60-17 or 225/55-18. We have the Konig K-Summit tire chains # TH02230k45 which are a confirmed fit and offer the best clearance you can get from winter weather traction device. Since these do not go over the inside shoulder of the tire when installed they do not require any clearance at all and are the perfect solution for snow chains on a vehicle like yours where clearance is limited. I attached...

  • Best Snow Tire Chain Recommendation for 2018 Honda CR-V
  • In recent years we are starting to see more manufacturers recommend a specific tire chain for a vehicle instead of just saying one with low clearance requirements like what used to be the standard. So the TC2212MM that you referenced is essentially a standard snow cable chain setup that has a Class S compatibility. This means it works in low clearance applications but I would not describe any cable set as durable or easy to install. So I have a bettery choice for your 2018 Honda CR-V....

  • Recommended Tire Chains for 2018 Ram 1500 with P275/60R20 Size Tires
  • I took a glance at your 2018 Ram 1500's owner's manual and it does state that tire chains should only be used on the truck if you have 26/70R17 tires, and even those should only Class S chains. So before getting chains at all you should know that Ram doesn't recommend them for you. With that being said sometimes you're required by law to have chains and other times it just makes sense. I encourage you to look at a printed copy of your owner's manual and even more so to be extremley careful...

  • We have the exact set of chains you are looking for. For your tire size of 265/60-18 we have the exact XG-12 called out in your owners manual but it is now made by Konig who bought Thule. The set of chains you'd need is part # TH2004705265. These will fit your vehicle and work well. What's great about these chains is that they require minimal clearance, provide great traction, and are easy to install. I attached an install video for these chains to show you the install process.

These features square links in a diamond pattern to give your 2018 Toyota Highlander the best traction. There is an integrated tensioner to help the chains fit snug on your tires which is somewhat of a rim protector but there still is a chance that your wheels could be damaged. To get the same kind of chains but with...

  • Tire Chains Recommended for a 2015 Ram 1500 with 275/60R20 Size Tires
  • Out of the Class S tire chains that fit your 275/60R20 size tires I recommend the Titan Chain # TC751DC. They're a diagonal chain which has better contact with ground and isn't as rough a ride as the ladder chains. They also come with tensioners so you don't need to purchase them separately.\ I've attached a link to all the Class S chains that fit your tires, and another that is all the chains that fit your tires.

  • Tire Chains for a Mercedes Unimog U400 with 365/85-20 Tires
  • For your Mercedes Unimog U400 with 365/85-20 tires, I recommend using either the Pewag All Square Snow Tire Chains or the Pewag ASV Snow Tire Chains. The All Square chains have 7mm think square links whereas the ASV chains have 8mm think square links. The All Square chains will be better suited for mostly on road with some off road whereas the ASV chains will be better suited for mostly off road with some on road. The reason for this is that the ASV chains are not really made to be taken...

  • Recommended Tire Chains for 2018 Ram ProMaster 1500
  • The tire chains I recommend for your 2018 Ram ProMaster 1500 are the Titan Chain Alloy Snow Tire Chains # TC2319 because not only do they offer outstanding traction but the links are just 0.145 inches and are Class S compatible, which means they will be better for clearance between the chains and wheel well than the thicker Titan # TC2519 you referenced. The Titan Chains # TC2319 have a diamond pattern to maximize stopping power and have a simple, drape-over installation. I have...

The size will appear like the example I linked for you. My research indicates the RV comes with tire size 225/75R 16C and all chains for this size appear on the linked page.

I also checked out your owner's manual and it recommends not using tire chains unless you're required to. In the event you need to the manual states to use Class S chains and to install them on the front wheels.

  • Snow Cable Chain Recommendation for 2017 Ram 2500 with Tire Size 285/60R20
  • I pulled up the owners manual of your 2017 Ram 2500 and found the chart on tire chain recommendations and could not find the size you listed of 285/60R20. Typically this would mean that chains aren't recommended for that size but I'd recommend you check with a Ram dealer to verify this. Most likely the only way will be with low clearance Class S compatible tire chains like the Titan cables part # TC3029 which don't require as much clearance to install.

For your truck, you don't have the factory wheel size, so for your 315/70R17 tires I recommend the Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains - 1 Pair # PW2037C for the Class S minimal clearance chains. You will also want the Glacier Rubber Adjusters for Light-Truck Snow Chains on 16" to 19" Rims - 1 Pair # PW99 or the Glacier Multi-Arm Rubber Adjusters - Light-Truck Chains - 15" to 18" Rims - 1 Pair # PW105 to keep...

  • Chain Tensioners for Tire Chains with Cam Tighteners on Large Diameter Tires
  • For the Glacier Twist Link Snow Tire Chains with Cam Tighteners - 1 Pair # PWH2241SC you most likely do not need tensioners. The cam-style side chains simply rotate using the L-shaped tool to tighten the chain appropriately. If that will not tighten your chains appropriately, let me know your tire size so I can confirm you have the correct chains for your tires. These chains fit the following tire sizes: 10.5x20 10x22.5 255/80-22.5 265/75-22.5 275/70-22.5 9x20 If you have...

These chains fit your tire size and since they do not drape over the inside of the tire they do not require any inner tire clearance. With these tire chains and all others you shouldn't travel faster than 25 to 30 mph. Any faster than that and you risk the chains coming off and damaging your vehicle. Also...

  • The main difference between Titan tire chains # TC2524 and # TC2323 is that the chain set # TC2323 is rated as an S Class chain, meaning that it requires less clearance to fit and operate safely inside the wheel wells on a passenger vehicle. Chains # TC2323 use links that are only 3.7mm thick, as compared to the chains # TC2524 which use links that are 5.5mm thick. This means that the smaller link chains # TC2323 will work on larger tire sizes. The compatible tire sizes for each set...

  • Recommended Tire Chains for 255/35/20 Tires on 2013 Audi A6
  • I checked out the owner's manual for your 2013 Audi A6 and it does mention chains not be thicker than 0.4 inches though it also mentions only using chains on "certain tire sizes" so I recommend making a quick call to your local Audi dealer just to ensure your 255/35/20 tires will be able to use chains. If so I recommend checking out the Titan Chain Snow Tire Chains # TC1142 which fit your tires and are just 0.21 inches thick.
