*Clearance Required-Check your vehicles owner's manual under "snow chains" or "tire chains" for your specific vehicle tire chain clearance requirements. Some vehicles may have limited clearance between the suspension, body and tire.
If there is a clearance issue, the owner's manual may state one or more of the following: do not use chains, use type S chains, a specific style of tire chain, and where to put the tire chains on front or rear axle.


**The above recommendations are general tire chain use guidelines.
Specific vehicle and use recommendations are the vehicle owner's responsibility.
*** Due to the limited clearance of modern vehicles and ABS and Traction control systems, Twist Link and Type PL Car Chains are no longer offered by TireChain.com.
****Tire Socks and Polyurethane/Plastic types may not be considered a legal traction aid in some states when "Tire Chains are Required"
and are therefore not sold by TireChain.com.
