Expert Answers about Pewag

  • Roof-Mounted Cargo Basket for 2014 Chevrolet Suburban with Factory Roof Rack Crossbars
  • Thank you for your kind remarks. If you're new to etrailer you're finding out that service and support are what etrailer is all about. I am lucky to have been trained by many great associates here and I am delighted to help out. Rooftop cargo solutions come in several categories, fabric bags, enclosed plastic cargo boxes and, of course, open metal baskets like the Yakima LoadWarrior # Y07070-74, Surco Safari # SPS5084-1101 and the Rola # 59504. I realize I don't know the exact weight...

  • What Works Better Snow Chains Or Snow Cables On A 2007 Nissan Frontier 4X4
  • Both of the snow chains and snow cables will work great in snow conditions. The difference is the snow chains will give you better grip in more ice conditions because the chain links will bite into the ice where as the snow cables tend to slide over the ice. The snow chains will make a little more noise on dry pavement as compared to the snow cables. The Pewag Tire Chains, # PWXMR81V, you have referenced is a good choice for snow chains on your 2007 Nissan Frontier 4x4. Another good...

  • Snow Tire Chain Recommendation for a P275/60R20 Tire
  • Check out the link I attached to the right that has all of the different snow chains we carry that are confirmed to fit the tire size you have of P275/60R20. After having installed all of the different styles of snow chains we carry I would recommend the Titan Chain Diamond HD Alloy Snow Tire Chains # TC2533. These are pretty easy to install and are priced great. I attached an FAQ article on snow chains for you to check out as well. Lastly you will want to check your owners manual...

There is also a link below to an FAQ page on snow chains that you might find informative.

  • Snow Chain Recommendation for 285/65R20 Tire Size
  • For your tire size I would go with the Pewag All Square Snow Tire Chains # PWE3231SC. These offer superior traction, are made of nickel manganese alloy steel for a long life and are confirmed to fit your tire size. Check out the install video I attached that shows these chains installed on a vehicle like your. You will want to consult the owners manual of your vehicle to determine if there are any restrictions on snow chain usage.

  • Square Link Tire Chain Recommendation for a Fire Engine with 314-80R-22.5 Tires
  • I spoke with my contact at Pewag and based on the tire sizes you listed she recommended the Pewag All Square Snow Tire Chains with Cam Tighteners for Heavy Trucks - Reversible - 1 Pair, part # PWE2255SC, for single wheel axles and the Pewag All Square Snow Tire Chain for Dual Truck Tires - Reversible - 1 Chain, part # PWE4255S, for dually axles. You should note that when you are placing your order, the # PWE2255SC is sold in pairs, and the # PWE4255S is sold individually.

  • Recommended Class U Tire Chains for 2011 Mercedes Sprinter Dually
  • Using the part # PWE2219SC that you referenced would provide 1 pair of chains to cover two single tires. If you wanted chains on all four rear tires, part # PWE4219SC would be a better choice for dual wheels. You would need one set for each side. Should you follow the advice of Mercedes and chain all four rear tires, or just two of them? That will have to be up to your discretion. Having all four rear tires chained up will provide superior traction versus having chains on two tires....

  • Tire Chain Recommendation for a 2014 BMW X3 with 245/50-18 Tires
  • The only tire chain that we currently have listed as a fit for the 245/50-18 tires on your 2014 BMW X3 are the Pewag Snox Pro Self-Tensioning Snow Tire Chains, # PWSXV580. These chains are Class S rated, which means they also qualify for the Class U rating. Class U is actually less restrictive than Class S, so these will work great for you. I have attached a demonstration video of these chains for you to check out. I have also attached a few help articles on tire chains.

  • Self Tensioning Snow Chain Recommendation for a 225/60R18 Tire Size
  • For a set of self tensioning chains that are confirmed to fit your 225/60R18 tire size that are very similar to the # PWRS73 that you referenced I would recommend the Thule Self-Tensioning, Low-Profile Snow Tire Chains # TH2004125105. These will self-tension as well as self-center and will work great on your vehicle as long as the owners manual of your vehicle state that tire chains are approved for use. These chains are Class S which means they only require a very minimal amount of...

  • Tire Chain Recommendation for Toolcat with Snowblower on Paved Surfaces
  • For the best performance, I would recommend going with the Pewag All Square Tire Chains, # PWE3210SC, that you referenced. The square link chains have an edge that will help grip on ice and in heavy snow conditions. As far as damage is concerned, you will likely see chain marks on your driveway if it is a blacktop driveway with any type of tire chain. The blacktop surface is softer than concrete and is not very durable against metal. You could take a look at the Glacier Chains Twist-Link...

  • Chains vs Cables for 2014 Dodge Ram 3500 4-Wheel Drive Pick Up Truck with LT275/70-R18 Tires
  • I recommend chains because they will have superior traction in snow and grip on ice. Cables and/or rollers have good traction in light snow and a relatively smooth ride. The Pewag # PWXMR81V you referenced will only work with 185/60-R15 size tires. The one I recommend is the diamond pattern Titan chain # TC2533. The diamond pattern will offer more tire coverage. The square link type will have squared edges providing more "bite". The ride is a little rougher versus others. I would...

  • Basic Snow Tire Chains for a 265/70R16 on a 2001 Chevy Tahoe
  • We have numerous tire chains available for the 265/70R16 tires on your 2001 Chevy Tahoe. I have included a link to them below. For basic chains, I recommend the Glacier Twist-Link Snow Tire Chains with Cam Tighteners, # PWH2228SC. These would be your basic tire chains but they also offer a twist-link design for extra grip and traction and side cams for easy tightening.

  • Tire Chain Recommendations for Duall 11-22.5 Tires and Super Single 445/65-22.5 Tires
  • The Pewag ASV Dually Tire Chains, # PWASV294, that you referenced will fit over both wheels of a dual rear wheel vehicle. Unfortunately we have not had the chance to install these chains on a dual rear wheel vehicle yet, so the photo you see is the generic photo of the ASV tire chains from the manufacturer. These chains will fit dual 11-22.5 wheels and includes a complete chain set for 1 axle. For the 445/65-22.5 super singles, I recommend the Pewag All Square Snow Tire Chains, # PWE3261SC....

  • Snow Tire Chain Recommendations for a 2002 Dodge Ram Quad Cab 1500 with 275/55-R20 Tires
  • We have several recommendations for the 275/55-20 tire and wheel combination, see link. For the easiest installation and best traction in the most extreme conditions, it would recommend the Pewag All Square Snow Tire Chains with Cam Tighteners, item # PWE3229SC. The S model Pewag All Square Snow Tire Chains, item # PWE3229S, that you mentioned do not have the cam tighteners for ease of installation that the SC model features. If you will only be using the chains occasionally and are...

  • Class U Tire Chains for an LT215/85R16 Tire on a 2008 Winnebago View Motorhome
  • The Class U chains required by your 2008 Winnebago, are for regular and all square chains on vehicles with at least 1.97 inches of wheel well clearance. The Pewag All Square Snow Tire Chains with Cam Tighteners, # PWE2219SC, will fit your tire and wheel well. The chain links themselves are only 5.6 millimeters think so there should still be enough clearance between the two tires.

  • What Tire Snow Chains Will Fit a 275/70-16 Size Passenger Vehicle Tire
  • Many tire chains will fit a range of tire sizes. There is usually a list after the description on the product page for each tire chain we carry. You can also search by vehicle year make and model, or by tire size. In the case of the Pewag All Square Snow Tire Chains with Cam Tighteners, # PWE2228SC, it will not fit a 275/70-16 size tire. A comparable chain for your 275/70-16 tires are the Glacier Square-Link Snow Tire Chains with Cam Tighteners, # PWH2328SLC. The only main difference...

  • Tire Chain Recommendations for 2015 Toyota Camry
  • We do indeed offer tire chains that are compatible with the 205/65-16 tire on a 2015 Toyota Camry. Many vehicle manufacturers will have specific recommendations for tire chains, so I suggest you consult your owner's manual and abide by any advice or prohibitions found there. Typically, vehicle manufacturers of smaller, front wheel drive vehicles will specify a Class S tire chain, which extends above and to the inside of the tire no more than 15mm. This prevents drivetrain, steering and...

  • Tire Chains to fit Two Ram 2500 Trucks with 285-75-16 and 265/75-16 Tires
  • The Pewag # PWE2439S chain is indeed designed for both on and off road use, and will fit the 265/75-16 tires but NOT the 285/75-16 tires. I was able to find a V-Bar Snow Chain, part # PWH2828SC that will fit both tire sizes you mentioned and can be used on or off-road. Using the optional rubber tensioners, part # PW99 is also recommended.

  • Recommended Tire Chains For 35x12.5r18 Tires On Ford Truck
  • For your 35x12.5r18 tires, I recommend the Pewag All Square Mud Service Snow Tire Chains - 1 Pair, # PWE2441S. These are designed for on or off road use in mud or snow. These chains are made from a durable and rust resistant nickel manganese alloy steel. The links are 8.2mm thick and a square link that will give you superior strength and grip. You will also want some rubber adjusters like # PW99 to keep the chains tight. For a slightly more economical option, I recommend the Pewag...

  • Will Pewag Snox Pro Tire Chains Fit 2016 Audi Q3 with 235/50-18 or 255/40-19 Sized Tires
  • The Pewag Snox Pro Self-Tensioning Snow Tire Chains # PWSXV580 are confirmed to fit your 2016 Audi Q3 as long as you have 235/50-18 or 255/40-19 sized tires. The Snox Pro chains automatically tighten as you drive after installation, have a quick-release latch to make it easier to remove them, and are Class S for vehicles with little wheel clearance.

Before using tire chains, I strongly recommend reviewing your owners manual for any restrictions or procedures that the vehicle manufacturer has on the use of tire chains. I have attached a tire chain help article for you to review as well.

  • 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 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...

  • The Pewag Tire Chains # PWSXV580 that you referenced are confirmed to fit the 245/50R18 tires you have on your 2014 BMW X3. However, you will need to consult the owners manual of your vehicle to determine if there are any snow chain restrictions before you purchase anything. These chains are 3.2 mm thick so they would clear in most tight areas. I attached a review video for these chains for you to check out as well to the right.

  • Will 3/8 Inch Grab Hooks Work With 5/16 Inch Chain?
  • I reached out to my contact at Pewag, and the Pewag Grab Hook for Glacier Transport Chain, # G7CG-38-YC, will work with the 5/16 inch chain. I've included a picture of the 3/8 inch hooks on a 5/16 inch chain. Unfortunately, we do not have the 5/16 grab hooks separate. We carry the Pewag Tow-To-Go Chain w/ Grab Hooks - 5/16" D x 10' L - 4.5K, # PT8810. This is a chain with the grab hooks.

  • Where To Install Snow Tire Chains On A 2010 Nissan Frontier SE 4x4
  • The basic rule for snow tire chains on a four wheel drive is that you can use them on all 4 wheels, unless noted in the owners manual that it is not allowed. If using snow tire chains on only 2 wheels, on a four wheel drive vehicle, you will install them on the rear wheels. The reason they might not recommend snow chains on the front is because of clearance issues. I cannot recommend snow tire chains on all 4 wheels if the owners manual says to only use on rear wheels. You might check...

  • For your tire size of 285/60-20 on your 2016 Ram 3500 we have the Pewag Tire Chains part # PWE3231SC which are a confirmed fit. While these are considered on-road style chains the links are large enough that they would work too in an off-road environment where there is snow. Be sure to check the owners manual of your truck to determine if there are any tire chain restrictions.

  • Best Tire Chain for Snow and Ice for the 2015 Ram 3500 4X4 275/70-18
  • For your 2015 Ram with 275/70-18 sized tires I would recommend the Pewag All Square Tire Chains part # PWE3229SC. These reversible chains are made from corrosion-resistant nickel manganese alloy which will last much longer than cheaper chains. I attached a review video for these chains for you to check out as well. If ice is a concern the V-Bar Chains part # PWH3829SC may be a better choice. The V-bars links of this chain do an excellent job crushing ice to provide great traction. Either...
