Yes, the Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains - 1 Pair # PW2028C are "low-profile" (Class S) chains. The manual states that "If the vehicle has LT265/70R17, LT275/65R18, 275/60R20, or 275/50R22 size tires, do not use tire chains. They can damage the vehicle because there is not enough clearance. Tire chains used on a vehicle without the proper amount of clearance can cause damage to the brakes, suspension, or other vehicle parts. The area damaged by the tire chains could cause you to lose control of the vehicle and you or others may be injured in a crash."

The manufacturer just doesn't want the liability but typically Class S chains are going to leave you with more than enough clearance.

Expert Reply:

For your 265/65R18 tire size I recommend the Konig Self-Tensioning Snow Tire Chains - Diamond Pattern - D Link - XG12 Pro - Size 267 # TH01594267. These chains automatically tighten and align as you drive for quick, simple installation and only require 12 mm of clearance. They are made of a sturdy steel alloy that resists corrosion with D-Shape links to provide excellent traction.

Konig's innovative design makes the XG12 Pro snow chains quick and easy to attach and remove. Once the chain is looped around the tire and the three color-coded connections are made, the patented self-centering, automatic-tensioning system takes over, creating a perfect fit as you drive away.
