Snow Chain Recommendation for 215/65R16 Tires on a 2014 Volkswagen Transporter T5


Hey, I need some snow chains for a Volkswagen T5.2 california camper, 2014 model. The deck dimensions are 215/65R16. Currently I have had very little luck finding anything that fits well, and not many stores have been able to help me either. The car weighs a little bit under 3 tons. Do you have any suggestions? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

For the 215/65R16 size tires on your 2014 Volkswagen Transporter T5 I recommend going with the Konig Self-Tensioning, Low-Pro Snow Tire Chains # TH04115102 as they are very easy to install and are Class S compatible as they only require 9 mm of internal clearance.

If the problem is that the chains come in contact with components on the back side of the tire then I recommend using the K-Summit K44 Chains # TH02230K44 instead. These are self-tensioning as well and the unique design allows them to install and fit on a wide variety of applications as the internal clearance required is 0 mm.

Please be sure to reference your owner's manual and any local traffic laws when it comes to the use of tire chains on your vehicle.
