Considering this, are tire chains supposed to be tight?
Re-tighten Chains. The chains should be tight on the tire. And, be sure to stop if you hear them making any contact with your vehicle. If your chains are still loose, unhook the bungee and adjust the red hook straight across from the chain guide.
Similarly, how do you keep tractor tire chains tight? Others will vary. I'd put the chains on the first time as snug as possible, and then cut the inside side chain to fit i.e. remove any excess chain links on the inside. Run the chains to loosen them up, and then retighten them.
Similarly one may ask, how do you know if snow chains fit?

- Locate the two numbers directly after the R.
