How Long Do Cable Style Tire Chains Last


How many miles will cables last before they should be replaced?


Expert Reply:

Cable style tire chains such as # PW2029C are for infrequent use. With infrequent use and care they can last several years. They are not the best option for more frequent use or areas that get a lot of snow and ice.

A lot of factors will affect the life of any chains including road conditions and vehicle weight so an exact life span is not calculable. If at all possible make sure the cables are rinsed off with fresh water and dry before storing them.

If you can tell me the tire size you have I can make some chain recommendations. I have included a link to our informational article on tire chains for you.
