Pewag Snow Tire Chains

Pewag Snow Chains

Pewag is one of the original snow tire chain manufacturers. Based in Austria, this company makes everything from basic, ladder-style chains to premium, automatically adjusting tire chains. Each product line offered by Pewag has its own set of features and benefits, as detailed below.







Pewag All Square Tire Chains

Pewag All Square Standard Tire Chains

Standard chains done right, these traditional, ladder-pattern snow chains are made of high-quality material for lasting effectiveness. The installation on these chains is more involved than it is with Pewag's premium lines, but if you're looking for rugged durability at a good price, the All Square chains are for you.


Construction

  • Nickel manganese alloy steel is strong and corrosion resistant
  • Square links provide good traction in snow and excellent grip on ice
  • Standard ladder pattern provides good traction as you drive forward

Installation

  • Lay chains out in front of your tires
  • Drive onto chains
  • Hook chains around tires
  • Tighten chains manually
    • Twist cams are available on some chains to ease adjustment
    • Rubber adjusters can be purchased separately to help achieve perfect fit

Or...


  • Drape chains over stationary tire
  • Move vehicle forward, turning wheel so that you can reach around to access the rear of the tire
  • Hook chains in place at bottom
  • Adjust manually

Pewag CL Tire Chains

Pewag CL Tire Chains

Pewag's CL chains offer excellent coverage along with simple installation. A tensioning chain is used to fit the chains, making installation easier than with traditional chains.


Construction

  • Titanium alloy steel is strong, durable and corrosion resistant
  • Square links provide good traction in snow and excellent grip on ice
  • Diamond pattern provides great tire coverage for increased chain-to-road contact
    • Excellent traction and stopping power when driving forward and when making turns


Pewag CL Installation

Installation

  1. Arrange chain behind the tire with the tensioning lever, tensioning spring, and tensioning chain facing out.
  2. Place the mounting cable at an angle across the top half of the tire and hook it to the chain.
  3. Drive forward slowly. This will pull the chain onto the tire. Remove the mounting cable.
  4. Connect the side chains on the inside and outside of the tire.
  5. Hook the tensioning chain to the side chain with the integrated lever. Then twist the lever to pull the tensioning chain taut and secure it in place.

Pewag's ASV chains offer the best coverage with an asymmetrical pattern that runs across your tire's tread. This "full coverage" chain is designed for heavy-duty applications and severe weather conditions. Installation is identical to that of the CL chains.


Construction

  • Titanium alloy steel is strong, durable and corrosion resistant
  • Square links provide good traction in snow and excellent grip on ice
  • Asymmetrical pattern provides superior tire coverage for the best chain-to-road contact
