Expert Answers about Pewag

  • 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...

  • The Pewag Snox Pro part # PWSXP560 and the Pewag Servo RS part # PWRS75 are both excellent tire chains. They have several similarities but also a few key differences.

  • Best Tire Chains for a 2016 Honda Pilot with 245/60-18 Tires
  • We have several tire chain options that will work with the 245/60-18 tires on your 2016 Honda Pilot. For the cable type we have # PW1046. These are best for infrequent use or if you have to have something in the vehicle to be in compliance with the laws in some areas. We also have # PW1946V which has the cables at more of an angle across the tire tread and will offer a little better traction. I have linked videos of both types for you. For regular chains we have the Pewag Servo RS set...

  • Tire Chains for 2017 Ford F-350 4x4 Dually for Heavy-Duty Gooseneck Towing
  • For the 245/75-17 tires on your 2017 F-350 4x4 dually we have suitable heavy-duty tire chains for your towing needs. For the front tires I suggest the Pewag All Square Chains # PWE2439S. Square links provide more edges to bite into ice. These feature case hardened steel alloy material strong enough for your towing needs. These will help front axle traction to maintain your steering and braking performance in mud, snow or ice. These chains will also be tough enough for off-road use. Use...

  • Are Rubber Tire Chain Adjusters Required for Pewag Skid Steer Tire Chains
  • The Pewag Skid Steer Double Duty Snow Tire Chains part # PWSSE12165-2 are indeed designed for skid steer wheel and tires with an overall diameter ranging from 12" to 16.5". Depending on the tire and type of chain used, some manufacturers recommend using rubber tensioners or adjuster. They are not required but recommended to ensure the tire chains remain in the correct position. Pewag does not state the need for rubber tensioners or adjuster while using these chains but it would not...

  • Snow Chain Recommendation for Tire Size 275/65R20
  • We do have a set of Pewag All Square Tire Chains that do fit your tire size of 275/65R20 as part number # PWE3231S but the part # PWE3229S that you referenced will not fit. These are a great set of chains that since they are square links will give you great traction in deep snow, and since they are reversible and made of Nickel Manganese alloy will last you a long time too. A lot of cheaper chains are made of a softer metal that just wears out quicker.

  • Recommended Tire Chains for Off-Road Use with Tire Size 255/80-17
  • All of our tire chain sets that will fit your tire size 255/80-17 and that can be used off-road are shown on the linked page. The Pewag All Square Reversible Snow Tire Chains # PWE2228SC that you referenced are an excellent choice for on-road use but since you are intending to use these off-road as well you will be better off using chains # PWE2228S. These also are reversible all-square chains. You can use rubber adjusters # TCMA2. I suggest you check your vehicle owner's manual...

  • Reversible Pewag All-Square Chains for 2015 Ram 2500 with 275/70-18 Tires
  • The online owner's manual for the 2015 Ram 2500 says (on page 614) to use chains only on the rear LT275/70R18E tires. The Pewag All Square Snow Tire Chains # PWE3231S you referenced will fit your rear tires and give you an exceptionally durable set of chains for on-road or off-road use. Since these chains are reversible you can flip them over and use the other side once they are worn.

  • Tire Chain Adjusters for the Pewag Chains Part # PWE2255SC on 335/80-20 Tires
  • For a set of tire chain tensioners (adjusters) that will fit the Pewag All Square Snow Tire Chains with Cam Tighteners part # PWE2255SC on your 335/80-20 tires I recommend using the Glacier Multi-Arm Rubber Adjusters part # PW103. These tensioners are designed specifically for larger wheels and tires. They will do an excellent job of keeping your tire chains in the correct position to ensure optimal performance. I have attached a review video for you as well.

  • Recommended Snow or Mud Tire Chains for 35x12.5x17 Inch Tires
  • For your Jeep tire chains on your 35x12.5x17 inch tires, we do not have any 7mm thick links, but we do have heavy duty chains with 5.6mm link thickness. I recommend the Pewag All Square Snow Tire Chains for Wide-Base and Dual Tires - 1 Pair # PWE3231S if you don't want the cam tighteners integrated. These will require the Titan Chain Multi-Arm Rubber Tire Chain Adjuster for Light Trucks - 1 Pair # TCMA2. If you want the integrated cams then I recommend the Pewag All Square Snow Tire...

  • Do Tire Snow Chains Come With One or Two Chains?
  • When a snow tire chain says it comes in a pair, such as the # PWE2241SC or # PWPLC1142 that means it comes in a quantity of two chains. I have added a link for you with a video review of these chains for you to take a look at as well.

  • Recommended Snow Tire Chains for 2019 Toyota Tundra with 275/65-18 Tires
  • For your 2019 Toyota Tundra with 275/65-18 tires, I recommend the Titan Chain Alloy Snow Tire Chains - Diamond Pattern - Square Link - 1 Pair # TC2327. These chains are Class S compatible giving you the minimum internal clearances to protect your vehicle. They require 1.46" (37 mm) between the top of the tire tread and the wheel well and 0.59" (15 mm) between the tire's sidewall and the vehicle itself. They are made of manganese nickel alloy steel for durability and strength. The square...

  • Fit of Pewag Snox Pro Self-Tensioning Tire Snow Chains on 225/50-17 Tires on 2007 BMW 530i
  • The Pewag Snox Pro # PWSXP560 self-tensioning snow chains you referenced are compatible with the 225/50-17 tires used on your 2007 BMW 530i. The chains are Class S rated, which means that they extend less than 15mm to the inside of the tire, so suspension and brake components won't be damaged. Many car manufacturers specify that chains must be Class S rated. Before using snow chains, be sure to consult your owners manual and abide by any prohibitions or advice BMW provides. I'd recommend...

  • Will Pewag All Square Snow Tire Chains Fit 2018 Jeep Wrangler With 35x12.5-17 Tires
  • The Pewag All Square Snow Tire Chains with Cam Tighteners for Wide-Base Tires # PWE3235SC are a fit for the 35x12.5-17 tires on your 2018 Jeep Wrangler JL Unlimited. I went out to measure these chains to determine clearance and at their widest they are 1 inch so that would be the necessary amount of clearance you would need to make absolutely sure there is no contact. I have added links to video reviews of these tire chains for you to check out as well.

  • Tire Chains for a 2008 Volvo S-80 AWD
  • When a vehicle owner's manual or manufacturer says something like Use only Volvo approved chains that means they want you to buy them from Volvo or a Volvo dealer when in reality they should just tell you what makes chains approved or not. Basically you will need Class S compatible chains or cables because there is limited clearance between the tires and vehicle components. Also, on your vehicle the chains should only be used on the front wheels. If you are able to turn off any type...

  • Recommended Snow Tire Chains for a 2016 Ford F-350 with Dual Rear Wheels
  • Before you install a set of tire chains on your 2016 Ford F-350, you will first want to check with the owner's manual on the proper procedures for using tire chains. I have highlighted a few key points in the manual which I have attached for you below. - If possible, avoid fully loading your vehicle - Use only SAE Class S chains. - Install chains securely, verifying that the chains do not touch any wiring, brake lines or fuel lines. - Drive cautiously. If you hear the chains...

  • Does Pewag Tire Chain # PWRS77 Fit 2018 Honda Accord with 235/40/19 Tires
  • The Pewag Servo RS Self-Tensioning Tire Chains # PWRS77 that you referenced have been confirmed as a fit for your tire size of 235/40-19. What's more important that the wheel diameter is the overall diameter and width of the tire when fitting the chains and this chain easily fits your tire size.

  • Recommended Snow Chains for 35x12.5R20 Tires
  • We do have snow chains that are a fit for your 35x12.5R20 tires. I recommend the Titan Chain Alloy Snow Tire Chains - Diamond Pattern - Square Link - 1 Pair # TC2335 if you require the Class S compatible chains often specified in your vehicle owners manual (I recommend checking your owners manual for any restrictions or special instructions). These chains have a simple adjustment with integrated tensioners. They require a minimum of 1.46 inches between the top of the tire tread and the...

  • Recommended Tire Chains for 275/65-20 Size Dual Tires on a 2014 GMC Sierra 3500
  • Since you will be going into the mountains I highly recommend using chains that have square links. For this we have the part # PWE3231S that fits the 275/65-20 size tires on your 2014 GMC Sierra 3500. The square links are best for heavy duty applications like what you will be facing. Please note that when I looked at the online version of the owner's manual for your Sierra it states on page 10-70 not to use tire chains if you have dual wheels and for single rear wheel applications to...

  • Snow Chains or Snow Tires on 2011 Chevy Silverado 1500
  • A good set of tire chains will provide better traction than snow tires in deep snow and ice and also help a ton with your steep driveway when it's slick. The advantage of snow tires is there isn't a low speed limit like with chains and you don't have the setup process. The issue is that snow tires can handle really stange on dry pavement since the treads are soft and the tires themselves are skinner. This means if you don't plan on constantly being in the snow and think you'll be dealing...

  • Where Should the Tire Chains Go, Front or Rear, on a 2006 Dodge Ram 2500 4x4
  • For chains, you do not have to have a set on all 4 wheels of a 4x4. If you can select 2 wheel drive, rear, then you will want the chains on the rear tires. If it is 4 wheel drive all the time then you would still put them on the rear wheels. The 2006 Dodge Ram 2500 could have several different tire sizes. I have included a link to the tire sizes. Click on your size to see the options or if your size is not listed, use the selector option below the list of sizes. If you will only be using...

  • Choosing Pewag PWSXV580 Snox Pro or Thule XG12 Pro TH01594245 Snow Chains for 2016 Ford Transit Van
  • Performance wise, the Thule XG-12 Self-Tensioning Tire Chains, part # TH01594245 and the Pewag # PWSXV580 Snox Pro chains are pretty similar. Both use square chain links for superior bite into slick surfaces. As far as ease of installation, I'd give the Pewag Chains a slight edge. I also like the way the Pewag chains have the permanently installed bumpers that prevent the chains from damaging the vehicle's wheels, rather than the more temporary ones on the Thule chains. Another plus,...

  • Recommended Tire Chains for 2012 Ford F-450 Super Duty Towing 5th Wheel Trailer Off-Road
  • For a set of heavy-duty square-link tire chains for your 2012 Ford F-450's 245/75R17 tires I suggest the Pewag Mud Service Tire Chains # PWE2439S. These case-hardened chains feature nickel manganese alloy construction that makes them ideal for off-road use. You can use a set of chains on the outer dually tires or run two sets if you prefer, so long as Ford says this is okay. It is a good idea to check your Ford owner's manual for any guidance related to tire chain use on your specific...

  • Recommended Tire Snow Chains for a 2014 Jeep Wrangler Driving in Moderate to Heavy Snow
  • I think adding snow chains are a nice addition, especially when you are heading skiing and potentially deep snow at times. But snow tires will be the superior option for snow. This is because snow tires dig down right through the snow to make contact with ground. I recommend the Pewag tire chains # PWE2228SC because of the square links. These provide excellent traction in snow, ice and mud. Just what your Jeep likes. These have a reversible design so you can wear on either side which...

  • Recommended Tire Chains for 295/60-20 Size Tires on 2016 Ram 1500
  • I called and spoke with my contact at Titan Chain regarding your 2016 Ram 1500 as it looks like the 295/60-20 size tire that the truck is equipped with isn't a stock size. He said the best fit for this particular tire size is with the Titan Chain Alloy Snow Chains # TC3231SCAM. There is a chance that the chain may end up being just a bit too long so you might need to cut off a link or two. The issue is that the 295/60-20 tire kind of falls in between chain sizes but this set will be your...

  • Fit of Pewag Cam Tightening Tool PW204 on Other Brands of Tire Chains
  • The Cam Tightening Tool # PW204 is designed to fit the cams on Pewag and Glacier brand heavy truck tire chains. The tool is made from bent bar stock. I went to our warehouse and measured it for you. The cam tool has a cross section of 1/4-inch x 7/8-inch. We do not sell the Quick Grip brand so I checked the specs for a number of their tire chains that use cams, but the cam's dimensions are not provided.

  • Recommended Snow Tire Chains for 235/60-18 Size Tires on a 2019 Honda Odyssey
  • I recommend going with the Pewag Servo RS # PWRS80 for the 235/60-18 size tires on your 2019 Honda Odyssey because these feature a drape-over installation, steel square links in a diamond pattern, rim protection, and a quick release for easy removal. The steel square links in the diamond pattern give you the best traction out there when compared to steel cables or square links in the ladder pattern. When I took a look at the online owner's manual for your 2019 Honda Odyssey it stated...

  • For the 215/85R16 dual wheel setup you have on your 2015 Mercedes Benz Sprinter the Pewag Chains part # PWE4219S would be your best option. These chains are about as easy to install as you are going to get for a dually setup and they are reversible so that you can get more life out of them.

  • Recommended Class S Compatible Tire Chains For 2012 Toyota RAV4 With 225/65R17 Tires
  • The Pewag Snox Pro Self-Tensioning Snow Tire Chains, part # PWSXV580 you referenced is designed to fit the 225/65R17 tires you have on your 2012 Toyota RAV4. I measured the chains on this system and the width of the chains is 11.46 mm. You mentioned the owner's manual said the chains were to be 10 mm. These would be approximately 1/16 inch wider than you stated the manual said is needed. For 4-wheel drive vehicles you can use 1 or 2 sets of chains. With only 1 set of chains, they...

  • Can # PWSXP530 Pewag Snox Pro be Used in Light Snowfall
  • Yes, you can use the Pewag Snox in light snow, but keep in mind, you should not use any tire chains on bare pavement. Driving on bare pavement will damage the pavement and the chains and tire chains do not offer good traction on bare pavement. If you would like for me to find the correct Snox set for your vehicle, just send me your tire size and I will be happy to give you some options.
