Pewag Snox Pro tire chains install so easily, you'll be on the road in minutes. Just pull the chains onto your tires and the unique self-centering, self-tensioning system tightens automatically as long as your wheels are rolling. The tensioners release when the vehicle stops, making it easy to pull the chains off quickly when you reach dry pavement.


Installation of Pewag Snox Pro Self-Tensioning Snow Tire Chains

Grasp both ends of the red cord and pull outward to activate the self-tensioning system

1. Grasp both ends of the red cords on each side of the self-tensioning device and pull outward to activate.


Place the red self-tensioning system at the back of the tire and drape the chain along the face of the wheel to position the red bungee at the bottom of the tire

2. Position the red cord over the tire. Pull the cord to the back of the tire and tug the cord down, fitting it around the bottom of the tire.


3. Drive forward 1/4 of a tire revolution, keeping the wheels straight.


Once the bungee has been placed completely around the tire, pull on your assembly to make sure the chains are snug

4. Pull the rest of the chain around the tire so that the cross chains are positioned on top of the tire tread.


5. Repeat this process on the other tire.


6. Once the chains are properly positioned, drive forward. The Snox Pro chains will automatically tighten and center themselves as you drive. No manual adjustment is necessary.


7. The tensioners automatically disengage when the car comes to a stop. To remove the chains, you can simply pull them off or you can press the quick-release latch, which provides more slack in the chains to allow even faster removal.


Class S Designation

SAE Class S tire chains are designed for use on vehicles with restricted wheel well clearance. Certain newer cars, vans and small trucks, especially those with large, aftermarket tires, may require the use of Class S chains.

SAE Class S Clearance Diagram

These chains will fit your tires provided there is both:

  • A - a minimum of 1.46" (37 mm) between the top of the tire tread and the wheel well
  • B - at least 0.59" (15 mm) between the tire's sidewall and the vehicle itself

How to Choose Snow Chains for Your Vehicle

To choose the right snow chains, you must match your tire size. Those measurements can be found on the side of your tire, as shown below.


Tire size on sidewall

185/60-15

  1. (185) - indicates the width
  2. (60) - gives you the aspect ratio (sidewall height as percentage of width)
  3. (15) - denotes the diameter of the wheel rim in inches

We are very pleased with the high quality of the tire chains. We haven't needed to use them yet but are confident they will work well. 575922

I have just purchased these chains for my 2015 forester. In trying them out in my warm driveway, I have some observations. 1. First of all, it is great to not have to close some link in the back of the tire when installing chains...YAY!. 2. The carrying case is nice but was missing one zipper tab 3. In putting them on, the bungee cord is not that easy to stretch so the installer will need some arm strength to get it into place. 4. Once on, they were easy to get off. Overall, I like them 574963

Purchased these chains for a trip to the snow and for future use after buying a new vehicle. The chains were received promptly in a well designed carrying case, with a mat, gloves, and instructions for mounting the chains. I haven't had to use them = a Subaru Forester is a great AWD vehicle and handled some pretty dicey conditions with no issue - but carry them and feel confident I can mount and dismount them quickly. Instructions are clear and simple to follow. 352746

Haven't had to use them. Bought them because I had crappy stock tires on my AWD Subaru, got these specifically so that if I did have to use them they would not scratch my premium wheels. I now have better tires, probably won't ever need them but have them just in case chain control is absurd. 303722

This company, etrailer, definitely understands customer service. Answered my calls on Sunday, also did two follow up calls one before item was shipped and one after the item was shipped as well as a follow up email. Help with expediting my order. Will order from etrailer again. It's all about service when you can buy an item from other suppliers. This company defines service. That's rare today. 338247

My first attempt at putting on the snow chains was easy, but I could NOT remove them. I looked at the customer reviews and everyone said removal was easy. Needless to say, all the reviews came from men. Becky from customer service suggested that the quick release latch be at the top of the tire during removal. This did the trick! I now have a set of good quality snow chains that I can put on and take off by myself when I take my grandkids to the snow. Etrailer has super fast delivery & great customer service! 739853

Review from a similar Snox Pro in Tire Chains


I mounted my Pewag Snow Chains (PWSXP560) today on a dry run. I was very impressed with the method of installation, as well as the ease of taking them off. I purchased them because of a very bad experience I had with chains previously. I was very uncomfortable driving in conditions that would require chains. With these chains I have confidence in using them should conditions require them. 469946

Three stars only because I need snow to evaluate their performance. The chains apear to be of very high quality materials again how they hold up to use will be determined this winter. The purchase experience with etrailer was very good five stars for the whole experience. 294612

The good news: I have not needed to use them so far this year! They are in the trunk just in case. I am happy I just have a set of quality chains, IF and when I need them. BTW, these guys are heavy! They could be boat anchors. Thanks, Rick 467721

Review from a similar Snox Pro in Tire Chains


I drive a 1996 Corvette and have for the past 20 years - year round. And that makes driving near impossible in Connecticut winters and hilly terrains. Until I got my Pewag chains. When the snow accumulates, on go my Pewags and away I go. Snow covered roads, no problem, up and down hills, no problem. I can put my Pewags on both tires in less than ten minutes and I am good to go. Great product! I highly recommend Pewag chains. 460614

Review from a similar Snox Pro in Tire Chains


I can't give a complete review because we haven't tried them yet. Need to see how they work in the snow first but my first impression is a little less than satisfied. I have used may snow chains in my life but the material of the chains don't seem to be very strong and I don't know if they will hold up to the road test. I'm not feeling very confident that they will last one use. I bought these chains for my daughter's car and I love the ease of installation. I hope they get her home during her winter break from college. 698914

Review from a similar Snox Pro in Tire Chains


I was concerned about using chains not prescribed by Volvo when I read forums about what chains to use. I purchased these with the hope that I would not have to find out if they were the right chains. It snowed heavily in Tahoe and I had to use them on my AWD XC70. They were perfect. The chains did not cause a problem with the lack of clearance in the front wheel well. Putting them on took some strength to stretch the bungee around the tire. Taking them off was completely easy. I would recommend these. The price is high, but worth it for the peace of mind that I won't damage my car's front steering or suspension. 620019

Review from a similar Snox Pro in Tire Chains


Fit snugly. Will be a little difficult in the snow but with a pair of gloves on it is doable. The red plastic rim protectors would protect rim from metal on metal contact. However, with my M-sport rims and Pirelli Cinturato P7 tires, the red plastic doesn't even come into contact with the rim due to the extended lip of the tire...but this does mean that the chain touches the outside surface of the tire--see pics. A little off putting scarring the sticky looking surface of the tire...but it is inevitable. On the inside of the wheel/tire, my concern was contact with the knuckle, strut, end link, stabilizer, etc. It does get close to the stabilizer end link, but doesn't touch...my pictures are shown before self centering while driving...so the spacing to end link would only get greater as I installed in worst case scenario to compare. 476858

Review from a similar Snox Pro in Tire Chains


Product boasts being perfectly easy to pop on and roll away but the bungie is rather stiff and somewhat difficult to pull to the back of your tires. Once you DO get the red cable to the back, you need to perfectly align the chains to the top surface (treads) of your tire; otherwise, the bungie will pull and tear, ultimately breaking the chains inside of them. That said, I do still recommend this product - when properly installed, they are very sturdy and get me out of my steep driveway like a champ. I also highly recommend etrailer (their customer service is awesome and they are very understanding when it comes to product flaws or user errors). 629515

Colorado, average snow about 6 inches, fist and only time used, Soft snow and road edge harder due to plow, they chains moved and broke immediately, both chains. I explained exactly what happened, after 2 months with etrailer support, Pewag stated not our fault, did not offer to replace or refund. TERRIBLE Experience and customer service when needed in mid winter. Don't buy, there are many other self tensioning ones to buy at a better price. 907936

The description of these tire chains indicates they are easy to install but if these are easy to install I would not want to install difficult chains. Thus the four stars. They are made of good quality materials and do seem to self center and seem to do the job. 901032

  • Recommended Snow Chains for a 1998 Chevy Astro Van
    If you have the 215/75-15 size tires on your 1998 Chevrolet Astro then I recommend using the Pewag Snox Pro Self-Tensioning Snow Tire Chains # PWSXP570 because they are easy to install and feature square links in a diamond pattern for great traction. For a more cost-effective option I recommend the Titan Chain Snow Tire Chains # TC1138 which uses twist links in a ladder pattern. These aren't quite as easy to install but they will get the job done. Attached is a review video of the...

  • 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.

  • Snow Chains for 2014 Ford F-450 Super Duty
    I took a look at the owners manual for the 2014 Ford F-450 and though it did not specify where you should put the chains, it did say they were okay to use as long as the were Class S Compatible. And chains are by far a better option than cables; the ones you want are going to depend on your tire size. I've added a link that will take you to the page where you can input your tire size to lead you to the correct snow chains.

    Yes, the Pewag Snox Pro Tire Chains, # PWSXP570, will fit the 225/70-15 tires on your 2004 Nissan Frontier. According to a copy of your owners manual I found on line, Nissan recommends using Class S tire chains. The Snox Pro tire chains are Class S, so they will work for you. I strongly recommend reviewing your owners manual before installing or using any tire chains.

    We do have a similar great set of tire chains that fit your tire size of 225/60R18 but the ones you referenced are not a fit.

  • Tire Chain Recommendations for a 2014 Infiniti Q60
    There were at least 4 possible stock tire size options for the 2014 Infiniti Q60. I show that it could have 225/45-19, 225/50-18, 245/40-19, or 245/45-18 tires. Check the tire sidewall on your Q60 to determine the size. This will ensure you get the right size chains for that tire size. If you have 225/45-19 tires I recommend Glacier square-link chains # PWPLC1138. The square links provide excellent traction and they are Class S rated for vehicles with limited clearance around the tires....
