Recommended Cable Chains for 2017 Ford Explorer


2017 explorer FWD. 255 x50 R20 tires. Can you rec appropriate cable chains for tight clearance?


Helpful Expert Reply:

For the 255/50-20 size tires on your 2017 Ford Explorer, I recommend the Titan Chain Cable Snow Tire Chains # TC3010. These are confirmed to fit this tire size and are Class S compatible, which means they are designed to work on vehicles with limited clearance like yours. I recommend adding a set of adjusters like the Titan Chain Multi-Arm # TCMA2, as these will tighten and maintain tension on the cable chains for an even better fit.

I have attached an installation video on your 2017 Ford Explorer that you can use for reference.

I took a look at the online owner's manual for your 2017 Ford Explorer and it stated that snow chains should only be used on the front two tires. It also did specify that chains or snow cables have been approved by Ford as safe for use only on the factory tire size 245/60R18. I recommend checking your copy of the owner's manual as the information might differ for your particular model.
