Is It Required To Use Bungee Cords, Chain Tensioners And Or Rubber Adjusters When Using Snow Chains


Do you need bungee cords on tire chains if they are the correct size for the tire?


Expert Reply:

Using bungee cords, chain tensioners or rubber adjusters isn't a requirement but certainly recommended. Rubber adjusters such as # PW99, # PW100 will make it easier to fit and tighten snow chains like the Glacier snow chains # PW2028C you referenced.

The reason manufacturers recommend the rubber adjuster # PW99 or # PW100 (depending on tire size) is because the Glacier tires chains # PW2028C doesn't have an automatic tensioner.

Always check your vehicle owner's manual first to ensure that chains can be used with your vehicle.

I also included a FAQ and a couple installation videos for you as well. See Silverado video at the 2:44 mark and the Wrangler video at the 2:10 mark.
