Tire Clearance

TIRE CHAIN

MINIMUM DIMENSIONS MINIMUM DIMENSIONS
IDENTIFICATION A C
SAE CLASS "S" 37mm (1.46”) 15mm (0.59”)
SAE CLASS "U" 50mm (1.97”) 23mm (0.91”)
SAE CLASS "W" 63.5mm (2.5”) 38.1mm (1.5”)

NOTE : For design purposes, “D” is the maximum crown tire section width as established by the Tire and Rim Association (TRA). The minimum clearances specified  must be maintained around spring clips, spring bolts, fenders, braces, splash pans, fuel  lines, brake lines, brake controls, and wherever necessary.

Tire size must be known in  order to select a tire chain of correct fit. For passenger cars, vans, and small pick-up  trucks, it is important to check the owner’s manual. The restricted wheel clearances in  most of today’s downsized and front drive vehicles may require the use of SAE Class “S”  tire chains, as noted. Check your owners manual for information regarding your vehicle.
