  • Livestock haulers
  • Large RVs

Wheel Clearance

TruckClaws Require 2.5 Inches or 6.4 Centimeters of wheel Clearance to operate. Additionally if there is a brake caliper behind the wheel there must be clearance to thread the strap. Almost all vehicles meet this requirement but there are exceptions. You can either measure your wheel clearance prior to purchase, or buy a set and test them out. We offer a 30 Day return policy in the event TruckClaws do not fit your vehicle. If you are unsure if you have enough clearance we advise measuring your clearance and going slow when you test them out. Remember to follow the installation directions included with your kit. Remember that depending on your load at the time clearances can change. Vehivle loads impact wheel clearance so always test your vehicle for proper clearance at the time of use since and go slowly.

Strap Clearance

TruckClaws require an opening in your rim to insert the strap. If you only have small holes in your rims the strap can be curled to thread it through the wheel.  Do not install the TruckClaws Strap over or next to the tire’s air valve stem. In some rare cases there is only one hole in the rim which happens to be where the air valve stem is also. In this scenario please contact us first to try and fabricate a custom solution for your vehicle as pictured here.

TruckClaws Commercial Recommended Single Kit Install

All Wheel Drive and Rear Wheel Drive Vehicles

A single TruckClaws Commercial kit comes with everything you need to install on both your left and right drive wheels. We recommend installing on the rear drive wheels so you are able to turn your steering wheel during recovery, without having to worry about the reduction in clearance caused by this action. Commercial vehicles can vary greatly so always test first and go slow.

TruckClaws Commercial Recommended Two Kit Install

All Wheel Drive and Rear Wheel Drive Vehicles

If you purchase two TruckClaws Commercial kits you will have 4 traction aid devices. When installing on both all wheel drive and rear wheel drive vehicles we recommend installing both kits on the rear wheel drive tires in roughly the 9 O’clock and 2 O’clock position as pictured below.  Having two claws installed on each of the rear wheels will increase traction as you will grab twice as often per rotation.  We recommend installing on the rear wheels so you are able to turn your steering wheel during vehicle recovery, without having to worry about the reduction in clearance caused by this action.
