Tractor Tire Chains provide extra traction when operating your equipment on hard packed snow, icy or even muddy conditions. The many different styles available offer varying levels of traction, durability, self cleaning and repairability. Because one size chain can fit many different tire sizes, it can be confusing to know what chain styles are available for your tire size and application.

General Guide to Buying Tractor Chains
First you need to make sure your tractor has enough clearance for the chain. Clearance requirement will vary for different types of equipment, but we generally recommend 3 inches of clearance. *Pro tip: Usually the clearance issue is on the inner tire sidewall- not usually the fender on top.
Find your Tire Size
Your tire size can be located on the sidewall of the tire. *Keep in mind that one size tire chain will fit multiple different tire sizes.
Environment and Application
Hilly, icy, woods and rough terrain may all warrant a different tire chain style. You also need to consider usage requirements. Will the chains be used every time it snows or just for an emergency situation?
Because varying chain styles will sit on the top of the lugs/treads in different ways, knowing what type of tread you are using may determine the style you choose. You can always take a photo of your tire tread and send to it us, if you are not sure.
