  • Thanks Tim I couldn't find that.

    This information is from Tire Chains.Com

    11.2 x 28 = 21" x 115"
    12.4 x 28 = 21" x 123"
    13.6 x 28 = 24" x 123"

    This is how you identify a set of chains that you find laying around.

  • Didn't read this till now.
    Thanks Dan and Tim.
    I have 3 or 4 sets of chains but only use one for 12.4s. Would keep a set for 13.6s too. Have thought about selling the extra sets but never knew what tire size to advertise them for. This will help.

  • The WIDTH of the chains is almost more important than the LENGTH.. The wider the crosslinks, the shorter the side chains can... and must... be, to fit a given tire.

    The shorter the cross links, the Longer the side chains would need to be.

    SO if you wanted to cover half the tire, that requires a fixed length cross link... and that would then determine the "length" of a 'laid out' chain assembly. I suppose it could be calculated but for most of us, maybe trial and error is easier. :-)

  • The closest match I see to our normal tire sizes is Tire 11.2x28 = 21x118" Chain.

  • Thanks. The 25x136 is for the 12.4x28 then.

  • 25 x 138" appears to be about 15" too long to fit even a 13.2 x 28.
