  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • Fitment of Thule K-Summit XXL Chains on Tire Size 285/40 R22
  • I can help you find the correct tire chains for your aftermarket tires on your Range Rover Sport, however the K-Summit chains you referenced will not be a fit. The K-Summit Chains will fit only tires up to 21 inches in diameter and your 285/40R22 tire aftermarket tire actually has a diameter of 31 inches. I have included a Help Article on determining tire size for you to look at. I would instead recommend the Pewag # PWE2228SC with the # TCMA2 rubber adjusters. With this style of...

  • We do have a large selection of tire chains that are designed to fit the 335/80R20 tires on your 2006 EarthRoamer XV-LT. I recommend looking at the Pewag All Square Snow Tire Chains with Cam Tighteners # PWE2255SC.

  • Are There Different Speed Ratings For Snow Tire Chains?
  • All tire chains for all size tires have that 30 mph speed rating. People obviously can choose to follow those ratings or not, but the ratings are there to protect your vehicle. Your owners manual will give restrictions on what you can use and how fast you can use it. For your 35X12.5X20 tires, I recommend the Pewag All Square Snow Tire Chains with Cam Tighteners for Wide-Base Tires - 1 Pair, # PWE3229SC, for the best traction.

It's the only tire chain we offer for your size that does not require you to drive a few feet and then make more connections.

I have created an itemized list of these similarities and differences for you below, similar to a comparison chart.

  • 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 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...

  • Recommended Snow Tire Chains For 2017 Volvo V60 With 235/40R19 Tires
  • The Thule chains you have are great and unfortunately are no longer being made. If you are concerned about the chains, then I recommend the Pewag Servo RS Self-Tensioning Tire Chains # PWRS77 are great for your application. They only require 15mm of internal clearance to operate and that is Class S compatible for minimal clearances. I wouldn't hesitate to use your current chains if they are in good condition. The Pewag option is a replacement recommendation if your chains are not in...

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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...

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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 Snow Tire Chains for a 2016 Ford Explorer with 245/60R18 Tires
  • According to your 2016 Ford Explorer owners manual, "You should only install chains or cables that have been rated as 10 mm or less in dimension as measured on the sidewall of your tire" and " The chains should be mounted in pairs on the front tires only". You will also want to review your manual for any other precautionary measures required for using tire chains. One thing people do not realize before purchasing a set of tires chains for their vehicle is installation difficulty. Although...

  • 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...

  • 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 Skid Steer Tire Chains for 10 x 16.5 Tires
  • I recommend you get tire chains for your skid steer that are size 10 x 16.5 because these are going to be the most effective traction devices. A skid steer will require you to use special heavy-duty chains and the best option is the Pewag Skid Steer Double Duty Snow Tire Chains # PWSSE12165-2 because the links are thick squares that have a ladder pattern to give you the most ability to stop and start.

  • 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...

  • Tire Chains for Infrequent Use on a 2012 Chevy Suburban with 275/55-20 Tires
  • For infrequent use I usually recommend cable style chains like # TC2028 with tensioners # TCMA3 to keep the cables tight and centered. Cables also require little clearance and cost less than traditional chains. You would only need to have them on the rear wheels of your 2012 Chevy Suburban and 275/55-20 tires. If you wanted to go with regular chains then I recommend # TC2327 because they offer good coverage and require little clearance (Class S chains). I have linked some videos of...

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.
