Tire Cables

Tire cables also known as snow cables are a traction device that features steel coils wrapped around cross cables in a ladder pattern. Cables are a popular choice for occasional use in mild conditions. Cables offer more clearance, compared to link chains, and should be used when a link chain does not have the clearances needed for some vehicles.

Cables Pros and Cons

Benefits of Cable Chains

Tire cables are lighter and easier to install compared to link chains. Cables provide more clearance and are a nice economical option for occasional or emergency usage.


Downsides of Cable Chains

Cables may be lighter and easier to install but they do not provide the same level of traction as link chains. Cables may not provide the traction needed in more extreme weather conditions. Cables are not as durable and have a reduced life expectancy when used every day or on a more frequent basis.
