Radial Chain is the “original” cable chain
traction product for passenger cars


Originally designed to save sidewall wear on radial tires, Radial Chain was the first real brand name in cable chain winter traction products.

Radial Chain’s “consumer friendly” features caused rapid growth in popularity and today it is still recognized as a market leader in:

  • Low operating space requirements (around drive tires). Meets S.A.E. Class “S”.
  • Simple mounting and removal, due to its low weight.
  • Improved starting, stopping and cornering performance.
  • All steel construction for long service life, featuring Peerless Industrial Group’s traction coils instead of traditional steel rollers which flatten easily.
  • Smooth ride.

With a history of performance testing from Alaska to Switzerland and a tire application chart that contains every original equipment tire sold in North America, Radial Chain is an excellent, yet affordable choice in winter traction.

Radial Chain’s plastic package is durable, waterproof and recyclable. This package works well for retail display as well as long-term consumer use.

Chain tighteners SHOULD NOT be used. Replacement cross members are available through some retailers and require a special tool for installation.
