Low Clearance Tire Chain Recomendation for 2016 Chevy Malibu with 225/55R17 Tires


Am focused on PW1038 SZ 339 cable snow cable for 2016 Malibu tires 225/55r/17. Owners manual says use low profile that will add no more than 12mm to the tire tread and inner sidewall. Is this your recommendation?


Helpful Expert Reply:

I have a solution for you but the # PW1038 is not going to provide you with the needed clearance. It requires 15 mm clearance and your 2016 Chevy Malibu only has 12 mm of clearance to work with.

The best solution I can recommend is the K-Summit Chains part # TH02230K44 as they do not go over the inner shoulder of the tire so no clearance is required.
