Chevrolet Colorado

Order, tracking and delivery was excellent. These guys know how to e-commerce. The product looks great. Excited to have these chains with me in the Colorado mountains.

2021 Subaru Forester

Snow chains fit my application as advertised. Minor issue: one set of chains (I ordered two) label is obliterated. One container was placed on top the other without any padding or cushioning material. The top container destroyed the label of the bottom container. Not a huge problem as I know they are both the same size. If I needed to exchange them…like new and resell able may have been questionable. Otherwise, great service and communication, as always. Thank to all at etrailer.

Volvo Cross Country

My rating is based on installation ease and fit. The chains fit well once I figured out how to install them. If you put them on regularly you would memorize how to do it. Since they will only be used in emergencies, I printed a photo of the chains installed and put it in with the chains. That way I can refer to it the next time I need them.
I bought the chains for a cross country trip in January from Pennsylvania to Idaho but never needed them!

Along with the picture, I recommend installing the chains in a dry test run so that you will be more familiar with them when it comes time to use them.

Subaru Outback Wagon

Great chains. I use a set of four on a subaru outback. Living at elevation, snow and ice. Not uncommon wintertime scene.

Pretty easy on (have a pair of leather gloves and headlamp), five minutes ideally to get all four on in the dark.

Practice with them before the storm.

Very easy off.

Will vibrate your teeth out if travelling on plowed roads, but that's not what they're intended for anyway. Take them off and throw them in the trunk.


Product exactly as described. Easy to install.
and I looked at the chain and said, "now what." After looking at the instructional video we put them on in no time.

Hope I don't need them on my trip but ready if needed.


This thing was useless. A piece of garbage. These things came off my tired middle of the city snow storm. Do not buy

Is it possible that you were driving on concrete that was not snow packed? If the chain make positive contact with the ground it can cause broken links and premature failure. I cannot recommend to drive on city streets that are lightly covered.
-- Etrailer Expert Heather A - 02/23/2022

2015 Jaguar XF Series

Just got them and they fit as expected to my tires and appear durable enough to be used repeatedly. Looking forward to use them when a snowstorm hits our region.

2018 Subaru Crosstrek

Super easy and fast delivery.


Worked great and easy to install. Caught on unforeseen overnight snow while camping. Installation was a breeze and gave me peace of mind on the way down from the mountain. Highly recommended.


I appreciate that there are [install] videos that show how to put these on. All you are practically doing is hugging your tires on your vehicle. The chains worked great and easy to put back into the box for safe keeping next use.


very helpful, knowledgeable customer service advisor Erica

2017 Subaru Forester

Easy to install. No snow yet so haven't tried them out.


Have not had a chance to use the chains.
arrived in a timely manner..


The chains were really easy to install and they did the job.

2013 Lexus RX 450h

This is my go to snow chains for easy to put on and take off quickly. You do need a round rubber ring to keep the chain really nice and tight. I find the self tightening system is okay but with a rubber ring to tighten the chains down, it is a lot better

2012 Ford Mustang

Thank you so much for an easy purchase. The website was super easy, and the snowchains arrived about a week earlier than expected.
Thank you for the follow up call after I ordered, I wasn't able to get to the phone, however, the message left was excellent. I WILL BE A REPEAT CUSTOMER!!


Ford Five Hundred

This is a life saver. Having a rear wheel drive car (Genesis) the snow and ice of the past month made it impossible to drive. Got these and haven't had a problem since. Was considering buying snow tires for my car but for 500 dollars for just two tires for my car got these instead, and glad i did.


Great product at the best price anywhere. I called to place my order rather than making it online because I had a question about shipping time just before Christmas. The lady who took my call was extremely helpful. Regular shipping was free, and she found and followed through with express shipping for just $7. She was super nice too.


Fantastic service from knowledgeable service representatives - that has been my experience, I am happy to say!
Great job - keep it up!


Chains arrived earlier than estimated on the website. High quality, good price. Got them for emergencies, have not had to use them yet.

2014 Subaru Outback Wagon

The chains came in and fit perfectly and they also store under the back storage area. Cannot wait to be able to use them. Will post pics after the first snow.

2014 Subaru Forester

I needed it to go to Yosemite. I have not tried it yet. The service and delivery of etrailer is great!

  • What Axle Do Snow Chains Install on a 2006 Ford Crown Victoria
    If only one set of tire chains is going to be used on a vehicle you want to put the chains on the drive axle. Since your 2006 Ford Crown Victoria is rear wheel drive you would want to install the chains on the rear wheels. You will want to consult your owners manual for any restrictions or regulations on running tire chains on your vehicle. I attached an FAQ article on tire chains for you to check out also.

  • What is the Speed Rating for Thule Self-Tensioning, Low-Profile Snow Tire Chains
    Thule tire chains have speed rating of 30 miles per hour or 50 kilometers an hour. But you will want to check your owners manual to see if the vehicle itself has any special requirements or restrictions using chains regarding speed. Typically chains are rated for 30 to 40 miles per hour but if chains are required I do not recommend going 40 miles per hour. If you have some specific chains in mind that we carry let me know and I can determine if they have an exact speed rating. I have included...

  • What Tire Chains do You Recommend for My 2022 Subaru Forester for Driving in Heavy Snow?
    If you are planning on driving in heavy snowfall with your 2021 Subaru Forester with your standard 225/55-18 tires, I strongly recommend tire chains over socks and cables. The reason why is because socks and cables are only recommended for light/shallow snowfall and will not provide you with as much traction in heavy snow. With that being said, I recommend the Konig Standard Snow Tire Chains - Diamond Pattern - D Link # TH01221104. The great thing about the Konig standard chains is that...

If you are looking at the Konig Standard Snow Tire Chains - Diamond Pattern - D Link - CB12 - Size 104 # TH01221104, those will fit 235/55-17 tires.

    Yes, the Konig Standard Snow Tire Chains - Diamond Pattern - D Link - CB12 - Size 104, part # TH01221104, will fit your 2018 Mazda 6. They are Class S snow tire chains, so they are designed to fit on wheels with tight tolerances. Your Mazda 6 is front wheel drive, that is why your snow tire chains go on the front wheels. You should also adhere to your owner's manual recommendation for maximum speed. I have included a video review of these snow tire chains below.

  • Thule Tire Chain Comparison for a 2013 Subaru Outback

The main difference between the CG9 and CB12 chains is that the CB12 tire chains are manual tensioning chains and the CG9 chains are have automatic tensioning. The CB12 chains are also rated for off-road and on-road use. The CG9 chains are for on-road use only. I would go with the CG9 chains. The automatic tensioning...

That is it in a nutshell. The Thule CS-10 chains are associated with passenger cars so I would look at them for your 2014 Subaru Outback Wagon. For the 225/60-17 tires you would use # TH2004125104 that you referenced. The CB12 chains # TH01221104 will fit but offer no rim protection or quick release features and do...

  • Can Tire Chains be Used on a 2011 Dodge Caliber SXT
    We can't recommend snow chains for a vehicle if the owners manual states that they cannot be used for liability and safety reasons. But we are aware that in some instances dealers in areas near snowy parts of the country will make exceptions to the rules outlined in the owners manual. In your situation that's what you need to do. Find a local Dodge dealer and ask them what they recommend you do to travel through an area that requires snow chains. If the Thule Chains part # TH01221104 are...

    Both the Thule snow chains # TH2004205104 and # TH01221104 are Class S compatible so they will work in that regard. The S rating means they have a very low amount of clearance required to clear you steering and suspension components on your vehicle. I am not sure why one is listed as off-and on-road while the other is only on-road. Both chains use the same D link style of chain that would work well for you in either situation.

It isn't your Outback that would be the issue, it is the fact these are snow cables, which are just not very effective whatsoever.
