  • Tire Chain Recommendations for a 2017 Subaru Outback with 225/60-18 Tires
  • Subaru tends to say that you cannot use tire chains in the vehicle owner's manuals and the 2017 Outback is no different. But if you are somewhere where chains are required by law you don't really have a choice. The law is the law. So what I recommend is going with something that requires the least amount of clearance. For your 225/60-18 tires the best option are the K-Summit chains # TH02230K66. They are expensive but they are built to last and no part of them will be between the inner...

  • Can Tire Chains Be Used On a 2015/2016 Subaru Forester or 2017 Subaru Outback?
  • The Thule Self-Tensioning, Low-Profile Snow Tire Chains, # TH2004205104, will give you enough clearance because they will adjust tension and not just have slack in the chain. If you are concerned about the seeming contradicting information, you could go with a cable chain like Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains, # PW1042. With these style chains, spring rollers are wrapped around sturdy wire cross cables. With this product, Rubber Adjusters like # PW100 are recommended. In the Owner's...

  • Should Snow Chains be Installed on the Front or Rear of a 4 Wheel Drive Toyota FJ Cruiser
  • When adding snow chains on your 4 wheel drive Toyota FJ Cruiser, you can add one set of tire chains to either set of drive wheels. Some people like to add chains to the front because the vehicle engine puts more weight over the front axle and allows the chains to dig into the snow and ice better. This might be a good option, but if your vehicle is equipped with a limited slip rear end and the front end is not limited slip, most likely not, you would be better off with the chains on the...

  • Are Thule passenger Vehicle Tire Chains the Same as or Made By Konig
  • Konig does make the tire chains for Thule and they are under the Thule umbrella. There are a couple of ways you can search for tire chains that will fit your 2011 Subaru Outback. You can use our hitch hunter and enter the year make and model vehicle and then click on tire chains. Or you can use the link below and search by tire size. Please consult the owners manual for your vehicle as some manufacturers do not permit the use of tire chains on certain vehicles.

  • Tire Chains Recommended for 2017 Subaru Outback Wagon with 2256R17 Tires
  • I was able to find an online edition of the owner's manual for the 2017 Subaru Outback Wagon. On page 8-12 it indicates that tire chains are not recommended due to limited clearance within the wheel wells. It further states that if traction devices are used they must be the S-Class type which are low-profile in design and more compatible with passenger vehicles that have limited wheel well clearance. Subaru says chains can be used on the front tires only. In reality, some municipalities...

  • Tire Chains for a Mercedes Sprinter RV with LT215/85-16 Tires
  • The first thing you are going to want to do is consult the Sprinter owners manual for specific information on the use of tire chains. If you need Class S chains which require the least amount of clearance around the tire I recommend Glacier square-link chains # PWPLC1146. The square-links offer the best traction and they are constructed of low-carbon steel so they should last you a long time especially if they will not be used very often. You would also want rubber adjusters, # PW99...

  • Recommended Tire Chains For 2017 Audi Q7 With 285/45R20 Tires
  • I was unable to find the information on your Q7 regarding the use of tire chains but we do have chains that are designed to fit the size tires you said you have. I recommend the Thule Premium Self-Tensioning Snow Tire Chains, part # TH02230K77. These are Class S compatible chains that require no internal clearance and are the easiest chains to use that Thule makes. Just put the chains on top of the tire, attach to the the wheel nut or blt and drive away. The chains tighten and center...

  • Snow Tire Chain to Fit Size 275/45R21
  • In your tire size there really isn't a low price option. The only fit we have is the Thule K-Summit # TH02230K77 which will give you excellent traction, will install easily, and will have the best possible tire clearance but the price is probably more than what you are interested in. For a Snow Sock that will fit we have the part # TCH74.

  • What Tire Chains Are Recommended For A 2011 Subaru Outback Limited 2.5 AWD 225/60R17 Tires
  • First, you should check the owners manual of your 2011 Subaru Outback Limited to be sure that tire chains are recommended for your vehicle and tire size and that there is not a Class size recommendation the you should be aware of. Many newer vehicles require Class S chains which can be no larger than 15mm for side wall clearance. The Thule CB12 Snow Tire Chains, part # TH01221104, will work on the 225/60R17 tire size and they have an internal clearance of 12mm, which will make them...

  • Self-Tensioning Tire Chains For A 2018 Subaru Forester
  • Before you choose to install a set of tire chains, you will want to consult your vehicle's owner's manual for compatibility issues. For a set of Thule Low Profile Tire Chains that are compatible with the P225/60/R17 tires, I recommend going with the Thule Self-Tensioning, Low-Pro Snow Tire Chains part # TH04115240. These tire chains provide some of the best in class grip. They also have integrated anti-scratch nylon bumpers on chain and soft-touch fabric liner on center bar to protect...

  • Will Thule Snow Tire Chain # TH2004205104 Fit a 2015 Subaru Forester with P225/60R-17 Tires
  • The snow tire chains you referenced, Thule's low-profile diamond-pattern D-link # TH2004205104, do fit your P225/60R-17 tire size. You will want to take a look at the owner's manual for your 2015 Forester to see if there are any restrictions or guidelines for use of tire chains. Many passenger vehicles are limited to use of a special low-profile S-Class type chain, such as these from Thule, which will fit within the wheel wells without interfering with brake components or other vehicle...

For the square link syle chains I recommend the Titan Chain Alloy Snow Tire Chains - Diamond Pattern - Square Link - 1 Pair, # TC2526.

  • Recommended Tire Chains for a 2016 Hyundai Tucson
  • Usually when your owner's manual discourages use of tire chains it is because there is not enough clearance from the tire to the wheel well for you to properly use the chains. If there is not enough space it can lead to damage to your 2016 Hyundai Tcuson. Sometimes chains are legally required in certain areas, whether the manufacturer recommends using them or not. If you decide to use tire chains, the Thule Easy Fit # TH04115245 has the least amount of clearance needed.

  • Tire Chain Recommendations for a 285/75R17 Tire
  • You will need a different set of chains for your 285/75R17 than the set you used for your 265/70R17 tires. I attached a page that has all of the confirmed chains that will fit your tire size, but I like theTitan Chain Snow Tire Chains with Cam Tighteners # TC3829CAM as long as clearance is not an issue. These chains have built in cam tensioners to make installation easier. If clearance is an issue and your owners manual says to only use Class S chains I would recommend the Titan Chain...

The tire chains you are looking at # TH01594245 fit a variety of tire sizes, you will want to check to make sure these work with both your Jeep and Honda CR-V.

  • Snow Chains Compatible With 245/45R19 Tires On 2017 Kia Sportage With Alloy Wheels
  • The wire style snow chains are known as Class S compatible. They are often called cable or spring chains, but the Class S part is what matters because it is limited clearance in the inside between the tire and other components. There are some chain styles that have this minimal clearance as well and are Class S compatible to work with your 2017 Kia Sportage. We don't have spring cable chains compatible with your specific tire size but we do have Class S compatible options in better...

  • Can Tire Chains Be Used on All 4 Wheels
  • The linked article on tire chains does address the question of on which tires to place snow chains. This really has to do with whether the vehicle is front-wheel-drive, rear-wheel-drive or 4-wheel drive. Drive wheels are always the priority but chains on all fours tires means more consistent steering and braking, as well as acceleration. In general, all 4 wheels can be chained to provide extra stability as long as the vehicle's owner manual does not specifically prohibit this due to...

  • Thule Tire Chain Comparison for a 2013 Subaru Outback
  • The Thule CG9 Tire Chains, # TH2004205104, and the CB12 Chains, # TH01221104, are both Class S compatible tire chains and will fit the P225/60R17 tires on your 2013 Subaru Outback. The main difference between the CG9 and CB12 chains is that the CB12 tire chains are manual tensioning chains and the CG9 chains are have automatic tensioning. The CB12 chains are also rated for off-road and on-road use. The CG9 chains are for on-road use only. I would go with the CG9 chains. The automatic...

  • For the tire size you listed the Thule K-Summit Chains part # TH02230K45 are confirmed to fit and would be the best shot at a set of chains that would fit without issue on your vehicle. Most of the time the reason tire chains aren't recommended for certain vehicles is due to inner wheel clearance between the tire and the vehicle body or frame. What is great about these chains is that they do not drape of the inner sidewall of the tire at all so there would be no clearance issue there....

The general rule for AWD or 4WD vehicle is that if one set of chains is used you want to put them on the main drive axle. For your vehicle that would be the rear axle.
