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.
