Video: How to Choose the Right Tire Chains | Call 877-844-2010 How to Buy Tire Chains? Hi this is Steve from Ken Jones Tires. Today I want to talk about how to buy tire chains. No matter what equipment you operate, here are some general guidelines for buying chains. Clearance First you need to know if you have enough clearance for chains. Clearance requirements vary on different types of equipment, from 2 inches on a snowblower to 4 inches on a loader. If you're not sure if you have enough clearance, just give us a call. Tire Size The next thing you need to know is your tire size. But be aware that one size tire chain may fit multiple tire sizes- it can be very confusing! This is where a tire chain expert can help. Work Environment Next, you need to consider your work environment. Is it hilly, icy, are you operating in the woods or rough terrain? Are you using them every time it snows, or in emergency applications only? Tire Tread What type of tread design are your tires? Tread designs determine the style chain that will work best for you. Price And last but not least of course is price. A good tire chain supplier will give you options. So clearance, Tire Size, Work Environment, Tire Tread and Price are all important factors to consider... Tire chain buying can be confusing and it is always good to have an expert a phone call away.
