Snow chains


  1. Tire chains should be installed on the drive wheels of the vehicle following the chain manufacturer's instructions, To retain as much of the normal handling characteristics of 4WD/AWD vehicles as possible, tire chains should be installed on all four tires, requiring the purchase of two pairs of tire chains.
  2. Buy chains that are the correct size for the tires. A proper fit is key to receiving the desired performance and durability. Do not deflate tires to install tire chains. A correctly sized tire chain will fit over a properly inflated tire. Additionally, because there is typically no source of compressed air to refill a deflated tire, driving with low tire pressure may cause permanent damage to the tire. Snow chains may not be available for all tire sizes.
  3. Use only SAE Class "S" chains. The restricted wheel well clearance in most of today's down-sized and front drive vehicles require tire chains to operate in an envelope that is no greater than 1.46-inches vertically and .59-inches laterally around the tire. These minimum clearances must be maintained between the tires and the vehicle's fenders, suspension, struts, brake lines and braces.
  4. It is important to pre-fit chains prior to actual use. Being faced with the choice of either damaging their vehicle or not completing a journey if the tire chains didn't fit is not a choice many drivers would want to have to make. Pre-fitting the chains will also allow the driver to become familiar with their installation. Since tire chains will only be required when the weather is at its worst, who would want to learn how to install them during a blizzard?

    You may want to buy a tire chain installation helper. These small ramps are designed to prevent slipping and allow you to lay a cross chain in a pre-formed indentation. Once you drive onto the ramp, the chains are positioned under your tire for easier installation following the manufacturer's directions.
  5. Tire chains should always be carried in the trunk during the appropriate times of the year and only mounted on the vehicle when warranted by driving conditions or required by law.

What is the correct tire size for 92 geo prizm


It depends if your gsi or lsi
gsi says, p185/60R14
lsi is a 13 inch tire, one said, P155/80R13
Maybe you need to check your suspension?
There might be a placard on driver door post that has tire size?
I just looked at tirerack, it said 175/70-13

Big tire places, Costco, BJs, Sears etc do not stock tires in the original equipment size of P185/60 r15. They stock P185/65, and P195/60 which seem very close. But Costco (at least) refuses to mount any...


The vehicles electronics is set up for what came
with it

You won't have ABS Braking System or Speed
etc ,work correctly.

There is a list of things,but that is a couple

It is no different now than 40 years ago

The fact people that have always done what they
wanted with their vehicles, doesn't mean it
was correct or they had any knowledge whatso ever

I wanted to know the correct tire pressure of a camry 1989?


Factory recommended tire pressure varies with the size/type wheels and tires that the vehicle was originally equipped with. There should be a tag or label on the driver's door or door post that specifies the original tires and pressures.

17" tires fitting my rims


If you change from the manufactures original tire size, not only will you have steering and handling problems but you will have problems with the performance of the van. The pcm makes thousands of calculations every second to keep the engine running at it's peak performance. These are based on everything remaining original (Tire Size). If you change the tire size it will alter everything the computer does. Including making your speedometer and odometer give you false readings. Your best bet is to stay with the original tires.

Specs on 2002 jeep grand cherokee alloy wheels R16


the tires & rims that come with your vehicle are designed to meet all the specs of your vehicle. When you change sizes and styles, you then need to get the computer re programmed with the tire changes you have made. It affects your speedometer, your transfer case, your fuel (mpg) and the performance of the engine to the wheals. Also you can damage your transmission and rear end. So my advise is to buy a high end tire that meets origional specs. Look at the Toyo's they are great tires, great performance and no alterations are needed. Pluss they look cool as hell so try that

check this site out and call them, they have better deals on the phone and have fricking great prices on tires.
