Expert Reply:

The Glacier Twist Link Snow Tire Chains # PWH2219SC that you referenced do not fit either of the two stock tire sizes offered on your 2006 Ford E-350 van, however we do offer a range of tire chains for both of those stock sizes, which are 235/70-16 and 245/75-16.

The link at right will take you to our main page for tire chains where at the top you can select your tire size to see compatible chains. I also linked for you two articles with lots of good information about the types of chains available.

If you have 235/70-16 tires we offer a set of chains from Glacier that are similar to the ones you reviewed, part # PWH2229SC. If you have 245/75-16 tires we offer # PWH2221SC from Glacier.

Some vehicles may have restrictions on the use of tire chains, so it is always wise to first check your owner's manual for any guidance. Certain vehicles (and many passenger cars) require low-clearance S-Class chains that need less space within the wheel wells. Your manual will indicate the type of chains suitable for use on your van.

Generally the first priority is to place chains on the drive wheels, but there is no reason you cannot use chains on all four wheels (as long as your manual so indicates). Chains on all four wheels will provide not only better traction but also better braking and steering performance.

I will offer you a word of caution: tire chains vary considerably in how easy they are to put on (while snow is blowing down your neck!) and the chains that are too tough to put on do you no good. If you expect to actually use them then I suggest you go for a better grade of chain that offers automatic tensioning.
