Get excellent traction in extreme conditions. Grooved links and ladder pattern provide traction for your dually truck in snow, ice, and mud. Reversible design allows for wear on either side for longer-lasting chains. Cams allow easy tensioning.


Features:

  • Provides excellent traction for your dual-tire truck
    • Square links are grooved to dig into deep snow, mud, and ice better than traditional square links
    • Ladder pattern gives you traction as you drive forward
    • Allows all rear tires to dig in, giving you more traction than you'd have by just putting chains on the outside tires
  • Lasts longer than typical chains - reversible design allows for wear on either side
  • Installs with effortless tensioning - just twist cams to pull the chain taut around the tire
    • Rubber adjusters (sold separately) are recommended for a tight fit
  • Resists corrosion thanks to nickel manganese alloy steel construction
    • Case hardened for strength and durability
  • Made in the USA


Specs:

  • Application: dual tires
  • Fits: 15" - 19-1/2" tires (for exact sizes, see below)
  • Link thickness: 5.6 mm (0.22")
  • Quantity: 2 chains (passenger's side and driver's side)
  • 90-Day warranty


Note: To determine whether you can use snow chains on your vehicle, or if they might affect your ABS/EPS functionality, consult your owner's manual.


These pewag ladder-patterned chains are great winter weather chains for your dually truck. Not only do the grooved square links dig into deep snow and ice better than rounded or standard square links, but the reversible design of these chains also allows them to wear under standard use much longer than other chains. And if you're partial to American-made products, you'll be happy to know that these are made in Colorado.


Confirming Your Fit

If you know your tire size, you may think you won't need to test fit your new chains. But there are a lot of variables that can affect whether chains will fit your specific tires, including your tire type, the amount of air pressure in the tire, the amount of tread wear, and the tire manufacturer.


We recommend that you order chains as early in the season as possible to give yourself plenty of time to test fit the chains and reorder if needed. This way, you won't be stuck out in the cold later with snow chains that don't fit.


You can test fit these chains in your garage or driveway, but you'll want to wait until there's snow on the ground to actually drive with them. Likewise, if you're out in the snow and come across bare pavement, you'll want to pull over and remove the chains. These chains can cause damage to the bare pavement, your garage floor, or your vehicle if they break from the wear of riding on a harsh surface.


Installing Snow Chains

Installing these chains is simple.


Lay chains on the ground to get all the tangles out

1. Lay out the chains on the ground to make sure there are no twists or kinks.


Drape chains over tire.

2. Drape the chain over your dual tires, making sure that the prongs attaching the cross chains to the side chains face away from your sidewalls. Drive forward about half a tire rotation.


Connect the chain behind the tire

3. On the back of the tire, pull the chain tight and hook the ends together. Repeat this on the center chain and the side chain on the front of the tire, then clamp the lever to fasten extra chain links and keep them from flapping as you drive.


Twist cams

4. Insert the included tool into the cam and twist to tighten the sidewall chain. Twist as many cams as it takes to get a tight fit.


Attach optional tensioners

5. Drive forward 2-3 vehicle lengths and recheck the chain tension. Tighten any loose cams. If needed, rubber adjusters (sold separately) can help you get a tight fit. Make sure the hooks on the adjusters face away from your tire so your wheels don't get scratched.


Quick Tips:

  • Lengthen the life of snow chains by drying them after each use before you store them.
  • Check out our installation kit with safety lights and a kneeling pad (PO34FRK) to make things a little easier when you're installing chains out in the snow.

How to Choose Snow Chains for Your Vehicle

To choose the right snow chain, you must match your tire size. Those measurements can be found on the side of your tire.


Tire size on sidewall

185/60-15

  1. (185) - indicates tire width in millimeters
  2. (60) - gives you the aspect ratio (sidewall height as percentage of width)
  3. (15) - denotes the diameter of the wheel rim in inches

Chains worked as designed. We use them in our trips to our farms in Montana and Wyoming when roads are open of course. Truck and trailer do not slip or fish tail.

Review from a similar All Square with Cam in Tire Chains


The chains fit our Wrangler Rubicon well, and are really substantially built. I like the cam tensioners. I might add a rubber tension too just to keep everything tight when driving. Really appreciate the quick delivery!

Review from a similar All Square with Cam in Tire Chains


2nd set of the Pewag tire chains I purchased here in the last four years. Loved the first set, still use them here in Wisconsin and Montana. Needed to purchase another set to fit some larger oversized tires. Amy helped me out deciding which chains would best fit my needs and I still can't believe how fast she turned the order around and had them at my house the day before I was leaving for Montana. Can't get better service than that.

Review from a similar All Square with Cam in Tire Chains


Shipping was extremely fast , received my order in 2 days . Chains are high quality and should last a long time. Bought these for all 4 tires of my ‘01 Ford F-350 , tires are BFG All Terrains Lt285-75-R16. They fit perfectly, will probably be cutting 2 links off of the backside where the two ends hook together. The chains came.2 per sack with a cam tightening tool in each sack. I modified the tool to make it easier to use when your hands are frozen.

Customer service was beyond expectations. I received the incorrect chains and once I notified etrailer of the issue they immediately corrected it and I was on the road within a few days with new chains. Pewag quality remains and now my work truck and personal rig are outfitted the right way. Thanks!

Review from a similar All Square with Cam in Tire Chains


Pewag PWE2228SC chains are nothing fancy. Good old traditional design. Came in a canvas bag with no closure. Successfully mounted them on P165/70R17 tires. Have not tested them in real-life snowy conditions. After chains are on, should drive vehicle 1/4 to 1/2 tire revolution, then tighten chain hooks further. Adding additional tension cords almost a must. Picture shows chain loosening at 6 o'clock and 7 o'clock positions after driving only a few feet. Consider adding threaded chain link to tie down extra free links to prevent them from flopping around when driving. Flopping chains are know to cut brake and ABS lines and cause other damage to the vehicle, especially if chains are installed on front tires. Thule XG12 Pro may be a better choice for front tires, because nothing flops around on the medial side of chains.

Review from a similar All Square with Cam in Tire Chains


So far, these chains look like they will deliver. I wanted something better than a cable chain that only lasts one storm. In my local, we typically get freezing rain with temperatures in the 30's. These should be good on ice. Installation was fairly easy and the cam tensioners pulled the chains tight. I also ordered the chain tensioning bungie.




by:

Review from a similar All Square with Cam in Tire Chains


I bought the chains, the Titan chain adjuster #TCMA3 and the cam tightening tool and all work great. The chains fit my 245 60/R20 tires just as expected. I used the drape over method to test out the chains, but I would probably try to roll onto them in practice because the tire is so big, there's some space between cross chains when I brought the ends together. I could probably just drive a bit and then retighten them.

Review from a similar All Square with Cam in Tire Chains


Quality made chains are priceless! We run Pewag chains on our trucks and equipment and get great life and performance from the all square chains.

Review from a similar All Square with Cam in Tire Chains


Hi Carol,

The chain packaging was
op0ened and looked pre-used with holes in the sack as well.

There were no cable ends included to pull the chains over the tires so I am unsure these are correct for 235/55 R20 tires as listed. For now will use another vehicle, I may need to exchange thes, ideally that will not be a problem for you guys.

thank you!

Review from a similar All Square with Cam in Tire Chains


Pewag always has been the standard for chains that are designed to do the work when you have to get work done. The fit was as expected you just have to tie back the tails on the inside where they don’t hit the strut tower. A couple of zip ties works
Thanks Tim for the help

Review from a similar All Square with Cam in Tire Chains


These Pewag chains are VERY heavy duty and seem to be well made and strong. The cam tighteners will make adjusting chains easier.
Service from etrailer was very helpful in getting the correct size for tires and vehicle, and the chains were shipped quickly.


Comments
These chains on my Jeep Rubicon are fantastic. I am a volunteer firefighter and EMT in the mountains of Colorado. I need to get to emergency incidents in the worst of weather. These chains make that possible.

  • Tire Chain Recommendation for 255/80-17 Tires on 2015 Ram 3500 Dually
    Konig doesn't offer chains that would fit the 255/80-17 tire size, but we do have other choices. Ram does state in the owner's manual that it's acceptable to use chains on both the front and rear wheels of the 3500 dually models, but they go on to say that you should use the same type/style chains on the front and rear axle to prevent handling problems. I'd recommend the Pewag # PWE4228SC for the duals on the rear axle, and if you wish to use chains on the front axle, use # PWE2228S....
