How to Install Semi Truck Tire Chains

How to Install Semi Truck Tire Chains



Don’t fuss with chains in the freezing cold. Let our guide, Mike, walk you through the steps to installing tire chains on your semi.

Impatient? Skim the quick breakdown while the video plays.

– Lay chain flat, making sure there are no twists or kinks
– Hooks should always point out and cams should be on outermost side of tire
– Grab center and lay chain over the tire, adjusting so that the edge falls in the center of the sidewall
– Examine for kinks as you apply the chain
– Tuck excess chain as close to front of tire as possible. Roll vehicle forward to move chain up higher
– Side with side chain hook and link as tight as possible, ensuring the cross chains are parallel
– Lock excess links back and use cams to tighten
– Double check that the chain is still squared up
– Use cam tightener to cinch chains tight to tire. You may only need to tighten one cam, or you may have to use them all to get the chain snug. There should be no slack by the time you’re done tightening each cam
– Roll vehicle forward one last time and re-check fit. Adjust as needed

DO NOT EXCEED speeds of 30-35 mph. Chains will wear faster, and links are much more susceptible to breakage, which can damage your vehicle.
