Part number TC1553, and that's on tire size 225 55 R17. These Titan chains are going to be a great addition to your Malibu for when driving in the wintry conditions.

Titan Chain Alloy Snow Tire Chains Installation - 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Speaker 1: Today on our 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee, we'll be having a look at, and showing you how to install, the Titan chain alloy snow tire chains with a diamond pattern. Part number TC2326, and this is with tire size 265/50-20.Here's what our chains look like installed. The reason we're going to need a set of tire chains like this on our Grand Cherokee, even though it is four-wheel drive, the many places our customers go, especially on ski trips or to go camping, they are required by law in order for you to get to your destination when there's snow on the ground. Also, they are a great way of providing an extra sense of safety and security so you arrive at your destination safely.One great thing about these chains is that they are SAE Class S rated, and what that's going to allow us to do is provide ourselves ample clearance in our wheel wells, so we don't have to worry about damaging our vehicle, or getting them snagged on any of our break lines, or our AVS wires.What sets these chains apart from other options in the market is that these have a unique diamond pattern that's going to give us superior traction in snow and ice. The reason that is, is that the diamond pattern gives us more surface area of chain contacting the road, as opposed for traditional ladder style design, which just goes straight across the tire. By having more chain this gives us the ability to have more area to grab into the snow, and the ice to get us going, and to get us stopped safely.The one thing many of our customers like about these tire chains compared to others out there, is that the small link design gives us a smooth ride, and the reason for that is, it's not sticking up too far above the tire, so as the tire rotates, and you run over the individual links of the chain, it's not like you're driving over railroad tracks, which some of the taller chains kind of feels like you're doing as the tire rotates as you go down the road.One thing I really like about these chains is that they come in a nice case, so you have something to put them in when we're not using them, and we can easily store them in our vehicle for when we need them.


Glacier V-Bar Snow Tire Chains Review - 2017 Toyota 4Runner

Speaker 1: Today on our 2017 Toyota Forerunner, we're going to be test fitting the Glacier V-Bar Snow Tire Chains with Cam Tighteners, part number PWH2828SC.

But it also has these V-Bar studs here which will give you superior grip in icy situations as well.These are very easy to install. They simply connect on either side of the tire, and because of the cam tighteners here it keeps it nice and tight against the tire here. You're not going to have to worry about buying any aftermarket rubber tensioners.This comes in a quantity of two chains. Comes with the cam tool to loosen and tighten them.


Konig Self-Tensioning Snow Tire Chains Installation - 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Speaker 1: Today on this 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee, we'll be having a look at, and showing you how to install the Konig XG12Pro Self-Tensioning Snow Tire Chains with the diamond pattern, part number TH01594267. This will fit tire size 265/50-20. Here's what our chains look like installed. The reason you're going to want a set of tire chains like these are because a lot of places you go, especially out in Colorado, if you're trying to go up a mountain pass, they are required by law, in order for you to continue, so not only would you need them legally, in some instances, but they also do provide you the extra sense of security and safety you're looking for in inclement weather conditions.Now what many of our customers have said they like about these chains is how easy they are to install compared to other options. You don't have to worry about driving over the chains in order to hook them up. If you're already stuck, you don't have the option of driving over the chains.

Speaker 1: Today on our 2018 GMC Acadia, we're going to be test fitting the Titan Chain snow tire chains with cams, part number TC2829CAM. These low carbon steel chains are very durable. And the ladder pattern is going to assist with effective starts and stops while you drive with the v-bar links giving you superior traction on the ice. With the cam tighteners around the chain here, it doesn't make it necessary to buy any rubber tensioners, although you still can. And you can find those on etrailer.com.These come in a quantity of two. And once you're finished using them, come with a convenient canvas bag, so you can place them in there, and they're ready for next time.

They're an entry-level option, but they're still going to give you adequate traction. They feature steel rollers on the cross cables. Now though they're not going to provide you with as good as traction as a link-style or studded-style chain, they're still going to provide you with better traction than you already had, while giving you a smoother ride.Like most chains, they do have a ladder-pattern design. They're going to provide you with good traction during accelerating and braking. They have a maximum speed rating of 30 miles per hour and they come in a quantity of two.

Tire Chains Questions and Answers

  • Correct Placement of Snow Tire Chains on All Wheel Drive 2012 Ford Escape
  • In general, snow tire chains are generally placed on drive wheels, but they can sometimes also be used on non-powered wheels. If a vehicle is front-wheel-drive only, then generally the front tires are the priority but it is permissible to place them on the rear tires as well unless the manufacturer states otherwise. Likewise, if a vehicle is rear-wheel-drive only, then the rear wheels are the priority but you are free to put chains on the front also unless prohibited by the manufacturer. For...

  • What Does Class S Mean For Snow Tire Chains
  • Some newer cars, vans and small trucks, especially those with large, aftermarket tires, may require the use of Class S chains. Class S tire chains are designed for use on vehicles with restricted wheel well clearance. I have attached a photo that shows the areas where clearance for Class S tire chains is needed. For the A dimension a minimum of 1.46inches (37 mm) between the top of the tire tread and the wheel well is needed. For the B dimension, at least 0.59 inches (15 mm) between the...

  • Can Tire Chains Be Used On a 2015/2016 Subaru Forester or 2017 Subaru Outback?
  • The Thule Self-Tensioning, Low-Profile Snow Tire Chains, # TH2004205104, will give you enough clearance because they will adjust tension and not just have slack in the chain. If you are concerned about the seeming contradicting information, you could go with a cable chain like Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains, # PW1042. With these style chains, spring rollers are wrapped around sturdy wire cross cables. With this product, Rubber Adjusters like # PW100 are recommended. In the Owner's...

  • Do Tire Chains or Cables Offer Better Traction and Which is Better
  • Actual tire chains are better than cables. Chains offer better traction and longer life. They also seem to be more corrosion resistant. Some chains are easier to put on that others. The same goes with cables but the cables are lighter. Cables are good for occasional use but if you need chains frequently then going with actual chains is preferred. Some vehicles require chains or cables that do not stick out from the tire very far because of limited clearance between the tire and vehicle....

  • Should Snow Chains be Installed on the Front or Rear of a 4 Wheel Drive Toyota FJ Cruiser
  • When adding snow chains on your 4 wheel drive Toyota FJ Cruiser, you can add one set of tire chains to either set of drive wheels. Some people like to add chains to the front because the vehicle engine puts more weight over the front axle and allows the chains to dig into the snow and ice better. This might be a good option, but if your vehicle is equipped with a limited slip rear end and the front end is not limited slip, most likely not, you would be better off with the chains on the...

  • Tire Chain Recommendations for a 2017 Subaru Outback with 225/60-18 Tires
  • Subaru tends to say that you cannot use tire chains in the vehicle owner's manuals and the 2017 Outback is no different. But if you are somewhere where chains are required by law you don't really have a choice. The law is the law. So what I recommend is going with something that requires the least amount of clearance. For your 225/60-18 tires the best option are the K-Summit chains # TH02230K66. They are expensive but they are built to last and no part of them will be between the inner...

These chains have great clearances, great traction, and are pretty easy to install. I attached an install video that shows...

  • Tire Chain Recommendation For 2015 Subaru Outback

If you are unable to find that information in the manual, the dealership should be able to answer that question for you. The concern when considering tire chains is due to the clearance needed. Traditional chains might not be recommended for your vehicle. Minimum clearances must be maintained around spring clips, fenders, braces, splash pans, fuel...

  • How to Put Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains Back in the Storage Bag
  • I went out to the warehouse and pulled Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains # PW2028C to figure out the best way to put them back in the bag after use. First, make sure that you lie one chain on top of the other. Then, at the end that has the large cam attachment pieces, fold those in towards the center of the chains. Then start rolling them up. Going slowly will help to maintain a tight roll. Once you have rolled them up you will have some straight pieces at the ends sticking out that you...

  • Are Snow Chains Required for Both Wheels On a Dual Rear Wheel Moving Van
  • You can use one tire chain on each side of your dual rear wheel van, however, I would recommend using chains on all 4 rear wheels, especially if you will be driving in areas with extreme weather. Using chains on all 4 wheels will provide more traction on snow and ice over using chains on 2 wheels, but using chains on only 2 wheels is acceptable. The Glacier Chains Cable Chains, # PW1046, that you referenced are designed to fit the 225/75 R16 tire, however, these chains were designed...

  • Recommended Snow Tire Chains for 35x12.50-15 Tires
  • For on-road use, I would recommend the Glacier cable snow chains # PW2037C, which have a nice low profile. Rubber adjusters, part # PW100, will ensure the best fit. If you are interested in chains for off-road as well as on-road use, you could use the Glacier Mud Service snow tire chains # PWH2441S. These chains feature twist-link cross chains for better traction. I am including a link with some helpful information on choosing a set of tire chains, for reference.

On page 8-12 it indicates that tire chains are not recommended due to limited clearance within the wheel wells. It further states that if traction devices are used they must be the S-Class type which are low-profile in design and more compatible with passenger vehicles that have limited wheel well clearance.

  • Both of the snow chains and snow cables will work great in snow conditions.
