What You Need to Know Before you Buy Tire 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.
