PLEASE NOTE:

In order to size a tire that we do not have listed, we need 3 dimensions. 
 The tread width, the tire width, and the height of the sidewall shown below.  
Email (Measurements will not be taken over the phone) us with the word "MEASUREMENT" in the email subject 
with these 3 dimensions and we will calculate your tire chain options. 
 Be sure to include your phone number if additional information is necessary.

2.
TIRE DIAMETER.  Measure the outside width of the tire. This measurement is done horizontally across the middle of the tire.  
 In the example above the tread width is 13 3/4 inches.


3.
SIDEWALL HEIGHT.  Measure sidewall height of the tire. This is the distance from the edge of the wheel to the top of the tread.
 In the example above the tread width is 3.5 inches.

Know Your Tire Size

The tire size is located on the tire sidewall.  In the examples above, we have circled the size in red. The size of the tire on the left is P215/65R-15. The size of the tire on the right is LT235/85R-16.  For additional information on what these numbers mean - click here.

 

ADJUSTMENT:Tire chains are designed to fit a range of tire sizes and tread designs. The overall length of the chains may be longer  than necessary.  As long as the cross chain width is correct, the overall length can  be shortened by removing 1 (or more) cross chains by prying the cross chain hook open and removing the entire cross chain.  The hooks holding the cross chain to the side chain are not hardened and can be opened with a chisel or vise.


Do Not remove cross chain from the fastener side.


Remove cross chain from the tail end as shown above.


Common household tools Required - cold chisel, pliers, hammer, goggles. 
 We do offer chain repair tools, please click on http://tirechain.com/tirechain-pliars.htm
.


Turn cross chain hook to be removed on its side as shown above.


Carefully drive chisel into fastener, spreading it open.


If necessary to reinstall cross chain, close fastener with pliers as shown above.

The extra length of side chain can be removed by cutting it off.  But it is our recommendation, to wire tie the extra length to the side chain.  This way if the additional length is needed in the future, it will be there.
