How to Install the Konig Self-Tensioning Snow Tire Chains on a 2017 Chevrolet Tahoe


Speaker 1: Today on our 2017 Chevrolet Tahoe, we're going to be doing a test fit on the Konig Self-Tensioning Snow Tire Chains with a Diamond Pattern and D-links, part number: TH01594267, and that's going to be on tire size: 265/65R18.These Konig tire chains are going to provide you with excellent traction in your Tahoe when driving through the mud, snow, or ice. Most chains feature a ladder pattern, these feature a diamond pattern. This is going to offer you more tire coverage and give you more traction. The small D-links are going to give you the bite you need, they're also going to wear down a lot more evenly than most chains. They're going to last a long time.Most chains need a rubber adjuster to help keep them tight and snug around the tire. These chains have a tensioner built in so there's no need to pick up any additional parts, and you won't ever lose it.They have a maximum speed rating of 30 miles per hour, and they come in a quantity of two.

One last great feature is they have color-coded connection points, which makes them extremely easy to install. We'll go ahead and show you that now.To start off, we're going to be putting tire chains on the rear tires of our Tahoe because it's mostly driven by the rear axle. It's a good idea to lay your chain out to make sure there's no kinks, twists or any tangles in it. We'll also want to be sure that the yellow portion of the cable goes behind our tire first and that the hooks, the open side is facing down.Now let's get them installed. We'll start by guiding that cable around the back side of our tire on the ground, and we're going to stop when we get to the center.

We're going to bring it up around the back side of the tire and connect them together. Then at the same time, we'll grab our chain and drape it over our tire. We want that diamond pattern to be in the center tread. Here in the front, we'll take the red link and the red hook and connect those together.Here at the bottom, we'll take our cable and our red channel, we're going to come up from underneath, so you want to be sure and pull back the hammer. Once it's through, give it a good tug.

This is going to help tighten it up around our tire. Once we've got that set, we'll then grab the hook up top here, bring it down and connect it together.Then we can repeat the same process with the tire on the opposite side. Once both sides are done, it's a good idea to drive a short distance, stop, get out, check to see if you need to make any adjustments.That's going to complete our test fit on the Konig Self-Tensioning Snow Tire Chains with a Diamond Pattern and D-links, part number: TH01594267, on our 2017 Chevrolet Tahoe.
