Expert Answers about Tire Chains


  • Recommended Heavy-Duty Tire Chains For 2016 Ram 2500 Truck
  • I did some research on your 2016 Ram 2500. Per the owner's manual tire chains can only be used on the rear tires. For your 285/60R20 tires, the heavy-duty chains we offer are the Titan Chain Alloy Snow Chains w/ Cams for Wide Base Tires, part # TC3229SCAM. These are a ladder-pattern manganese nickel alloy chain with square links that are excellent in snow and on ice. These include cam tighteners so adjusting is easy. When using these chains the maximum speed rating is 30-mph. To...

  • What is the Difference Between Twist-Link Snow Chains and Square-Link Snow Chains
  • The Twist-Link Snow Tire Chains like part # PWH3229SC are better for snow purposes than ice. Square-Link Chains like part # PWPLC1146 work better on ice than the twist-link chains. The Square-Links will work just as well in the snow too. Since they are both constructed of low-carbon steel, they will have about the same durability. If you are going to be using chains for a snow and ice situation I recommend going with the square chains since they have the squared edge which will do better...

  • Cable Style Tire Chains for 275/60R20 Tires
  • For cable style tire chains that will fit on 275/60R20 tires you can use Glacier cables # PW3029C, # PW2037C, or # PW2114V as well as Titan cables # TC751DC. There isn't a whole lot of difference amongst these chains but if I were choosing a set I would go with Glacier V-Trac cables # PW2114V for a smoother ride. They also come with rubber tensioners to keep the cables tight and in place.

  • Tire Chains for a 2014 Ford F-150 with 275/55-20 Tires
  • What you are describing is a textbook example of the Tire Chain Paradox or Mike's Law. Basically this occurs when you travel in an area where chains are required by law yet the vehicle owner's manual states that you cannot use chains. In my opinion your safety, the safety of other motorists, and following the law outweigh any repercussions that may occur from not following the manual. Titan chains # TC2533 are not Class S rated chains but we do have some Class S options that will fit...

  • Comparing Twist Link and V-Bar Style Tire Chains
  • Twist link chains offer excellent traction in deep snow and some are even rated for mud. They provide decent traction on ice, and since they have rounded edges ride quality isn't too bad. V-Bar chains such as # TC2828CAM are similar but have better grip on ice. If you can tell me the tire size on your Ram 3500 I can make some specific recommendations for you. I have also included a link to our help article that covers various aspects of tire chains and other traction devices.

For deep snow you'd want square links like part # TC3231SCAM. For a smoother ride quality you'd want the twist links part # PWH3231SC.

  • Can Tire Chains be Used on a 2016 Subaru Forester and Do they Go on the Front or Rear Wheels
  • In the owner's manual for your 2016 Subaru Forester it states that you can use traction devices on the front wheels only just not actual chains. This means you can use cables, Snow Socks, or K-Summit chains that only go on the tread. You didn't mention the tire size you have so if they are 225/55-18 or 225/60-17 tires you can use cables # TC339DC or Snow Socks # TCH70. If the tires are a different size let me know what they are and I can make other recommendations.

This restriction is due to limited clearance when the vehicle is fitted with larger tires. It also states to use traction devices only on the front tires.

  • Comparing Titan Tire Chains TC2524 and TC2323
  • 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...

These are twist link chains which mean you'll get a smoother ride than a square or V-bar. The advantage to a V-bar like the part # TC4831CAM which are also a fit is that they work great in icy conditions as the V-bars break up the ice due to how sharp and pointy they are. Square link like part # PWE4228SC are for the deeper snow which require a bigger...

At least as far as Chevy is concerned and if you damage your vehicle using chains it likely won't be covered under the warranty.

  • 2016 BMW x35i Snow Chain or Cables Recommendation Tire Size 315/35R20

  • Recommended Snow Tire Chains for a 2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek
  • From my research your 2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek has 225/55-17 size tires from the factory. If you have a different tire size let me know. 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. Since you're not planning to use them long term (or at all if you don't have to) I recommend going with basic ladder style chains, like...

  • Tire Chain Recommendations for 2014 Toyota Tacoma With 265/65R17 Tires
  • I looked at an online copy of the owner's manual for a 2014 Toyota Tacoma and it said you should only install tire chains on the rear wheels. If you are going to use these off-road you will need chains that are rated for that and I recommend the Konig Standard Snow Tire Chains # TH01571265 because their D-shape is designed for off-road use, they are easy to install, and they are made of durable manganese nickel alloy steel. They do require you have 16mm (just under 1/4 inch) of clearance...

These are made from low carbon steel so they won't last quite as long as the Pewag Chains part # PWE3231SC which are also a fit. These are made from Nickel manganese alloy steel which is much stronger and are reversible so they will last quite a bit longer. These are also square links which will do best in...
