Expert Answers about Pewag

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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,...

  • Tire Chain Recommendation for 2016 Ram 3500 with 285-60-20 Tire Size
  • 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.

  • Is Cam Version of Pewag Chains # PWE4219SC Better than Non-Cam Version
  • The cams of the part # PWE4219SC do make installing the chains a bit easier since you can tension them to the tire a bit easier after fitting the chains. For the small price increase it's worth it to have them. Each set of 2 chains weighs 49 lbs. For tensioners the part # TCMA2 would be a great option as well.

  • Off Road Snow Chain Recommendation for Tire Size 275/60-17
  • What you would want is the Peweag All Square Mud Service Chains part # PWE2439S. These are a fit for your tire size of 275/60-17 and will give you the best traction for a mud/snow application. I attached a test video for these chains for you to check out as well.

  • Recommended Snow Chains for 235/60-17 Tires
  • Yes, the Pewag Snox Pro Tire Chains, # PWSXV580, is confirmed to fit 235/60-17 tires. 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.

  • Pewag Snox Tire Chain # PWSXP550 Recommendation for a 2012 VW Jetta Sportwagen
  • The Pewag Snox Pro Self-Tensioning Snow Tire Chains # PWSXP550 that you referenced are a great choice for a snow chain that will install easily, give you great traction, and will last a long time. The self tensioning aspect of this chain is due to the large elastic red cable that goes around the inside of the tire when the chain is installed. It pulls the chain around from the outside of the tire where it's held in place to provide the exact amount of tension needed to keep the chain...

  • Snow Chain Recommendation for a 2014 BMW X3 with 245/50/18 Wheels and Tires
  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • Recommended Tire Chains For On And Off Road Use For 2015 GMC Sierra 1500 With 275/55R20 Tires
  • Almost everything we have for your tire size is designed for on road use, which doesn't mean they can't be used off road in mud, etc. They are designed primarily for snow, but the bigger links are usually what are used off road. My recommendation based on what you mentioned is the Pewag All Square Snow Tire Chains for Wide-Base Tires - 1 Pair # PWE3229S. I reached out to my contact at Pewag and confirmed these chains are compatible with off road use. A more economical version that...

  • 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....

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • Tire Chains for Trip to the Mountains in 2008 4WD Honda Pilot
  • In your owner's manual in the 'tire' section, Honda states that only Class S cable-style tire chains should be used on your Pilot. A class S chain will not extend more than 15mm above or to the inside of the tire, preventing the chain from coming into contact with any braking, suspension or steering components. Assuming you have 235/70-16 tires on your Pilot, I'd recommend the Glacier V-Trac Cable Chains, part # PW2119V. When compared to ladder-type chains, the V design would provide...

  • 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....

  • 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.

  • Snow Chain Recommendation for a 2011 Ford Mustang GT500
  • First thing you need to do is check the owners manual of your 2011 Ford Mustang for any restrictions on running snow chains. I would hate to see you damage anything by attempting to run chains on a muscle car as nice as yours. For a set of chains that will provide you with the best possible clearance and are confirmed to fit your tire size you would want the Thule K-Summit chains part # TH02230K45. These chains do not install on the inside of the tire so they wouldn't require any clearance...

  • Recommendation of Tire Snow Chains for a 2015 Subaru Forester 2.0 XT with 225/55R18 Tires
  • The snow chains I recommend for your 2015 Subaru Forester are the Pewag Snox # PWSXP570 because the diamond-pattern, square-link chains provide excellent traction in snow and ice. It's recommended to put the first set of chains on the primary drive wheels. Always check your vehicle owners manual to ensure there are no restrictions on use of tire chains. I have included a few FAQ's about install tips and snow chains as well as a couple installation videos for you.

  • Can Tire Chains be Used on a 2016 BMW X3 3.5 and Do they Go On the Front or Rear Tires
  • I checked the 2016 BMW X3 owner's manual and have the following information on the use of tire chains. Use tire chains on the rear wheels on the following tire sizes only: 205/65-17 225/60-17 245/50-18 245/45-19 Do NOT use tire chains on tire size 245/55-17 (or a different size) and chains on the front are not recommended for any size. If you can tell me which size tires you have I can make some recommendations. I have included a link to the tire chain main page for your vehicle.

  • Recommended Snow Tire Chains For 2014 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk
  • The owners manual for your 2014 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk states that you should use class S chains so I do recommend using chains even with the All Terrain tires. I really like the Pewag Snox Pro Self-Tensioning Snow Tire Chains - Diamond Pattern - Square Link - 1 Pair, # PWSXV590. These are nickel manganese alloy chains with built in tensioners. The square links provide better traction and the diamond pattern a smoother ride. You will need to look at the tire sizes for your Jeep to...

  • 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.

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...
