Should Tire Chains Go On All Four Wheels of a Vehicle or Just Two  


tires size 265/70 R17


Expert Reply:

For the best traction in winter weather you'd use tire chains on all 4 wheels. But you can get by with just two chains if you put them on the main drive axle. You can also check the owners manual of the vehicle for more info on how to use tire chains.

If you get me the tire size of your vehicle I can help you pick out the best option. I also attached a link to this page that has our tire chain fitguide where you can select your size as well.

In that tire size we have the Konig Easy Fit chains part # TH04115267 for the easiest solution that installs in seconds, provides great traction, and will last a long time. For more of a standard ladder style chain the Pewag part # PWE2228SC would work great for deep snow due to the square links. These are reversible which helps extend life as well. For a best value option the Titan chains # TC2526 install pretty easily and provide great traction as well.
