Chevrolet Silverado: Wheels and Tires / Tire Chains

Chevrolet Silverado 2019-2024 Owners Manual / Vehicle Care / Wheels and Tires / Tire Chains

Warning

If the vehicle has LT275/65R18, 275/60R20, LT275/65R20, or 275/50R22 size tires, do not use tire chains. If the vehicle is a 1500 Series with LT265/70R17 size tires, do not use tire chains. They can damage the vehicle because there is not enough clearance. Tire chains used on a vehicle without the proper amount of clearance can cause damage to the brakes, suspension, or other vehicle parts. The area damaged by the tire chains could cause you to lose control of the vehicle, and you or others may be injured in a crash.

Use another type of traction device only if its manufacturer recommends it for use on the vehicle's tire size combination and road conditions. Follow that manufacturer's instructions. To help avoid damage to the vehicle, drive slowly, readjust, or remove the device if it is contacting the vehicle, and do not spin the vehicle's wheels.

If you do find traction devices that will fit, install them on the rear tires.

Caution

Use tire chains only where legal and only when necessary. Use chains that are the proper size for the tires. If the vehicle has 265/70R17 or 265/65R18 size tires, they may be installed on the tires of the rear axle only. If the vehicle is a dual rear wheel model and has LT235/80R17 tires, chains may be installed on the tires of the rear axle only. If the vehicle has 255/70R17, LT245/75R17, or LT275/70R18 size tires, they may be installed on the tires of the front and rear axle. If the vehicle is a 2500 Series with LT265/70R17 size tires, chains may be installed on the tires of both the front and rear axle. Tighten them as tightly as possible with the ends securely fastened. Drive slowly and follow the chain manufacturer's instructions. If you can hear the chains contacting the vehicle, stop and retighten them. If the contact continues, slow down until it stops. Driving too fast or spinning the wheels with chains on will damage the vehicle.
