Thule's innovative design makes the XG12 Pro snow chains quick and easy to attach and remove. Once the chain is looped around the tire and the three color-coded connections are made, the patented self-centering, automatic-tensioning system takes over, creating a perfect fit as you drive away.


Thule snow chains are handmade in Italy of hardened manganese-nickel alloy steel for durability. The dual-sided, 12-mm-diameter, D-shape links provide superior traction for excellent grip on snow and ice. And anti-scratch nylon bumpers protect your vehicle's wheel rims.


Included with each pair of chains are mounting instructions, a kneeling mat and pair of gloves, all packaged in a sturdy, reusable container.


Quick and easy installation of Thule XG-12 Pro Chains

How to Install the XG12 Pro Snow Chain

  1. Spread the chain around the back of the tire.
  2. Connect the plastic-covered, yellow and blue cable on the back side of the tire.
  3. Pull the chain over the top and around the tire. Connect the red hook to the red loop.
  4. Make the last connection by running the red loop through the buckle and then to the red hook attached to the tensioning cable.
  5. Simply drive forward to activate the patented self-centering, auto-tensioning system to ensure a perfect fit.

How to Choose Snow Chains for Your Vehicle

To choose the right snow chains, you must match your tire size. Those measurements can be found on the side of your tire, as shown below.

Video Transcript for Thule XG12 Pro Self-Tensioning Snow Tire Chains Review

Today we're going to be taking a look at the Thule XG-12 Pro self-tensioning snow tire chains. These have the diamond pattern and offer the D-ring. Available in a wide range of sizes, for many different applications. Thule uses a self-tensioning device, here, as you can see. As we go down the road, the patented technology is going to help center our snow chain onto our tire and keep it nice and tarp, so we know how to deal with any kind of adjusters. As you can see, they give us color coded connections. So it's really easy to figure out where we need to connect our chains.

We got one here and the front side. We've got our blue cable that come together here in the rear and we also have a red and gray down here, as you can see. Red and gray, red and gray, and then red and gray. All color coded so you know how they go together. They designed the chains with a double-sided D-shaped ring, which gives us great traction.

That, paired up with double steel plates at each of our diamond, is going to help give us the traction we really need to get going and also get stopped. We've created these using our high quality manganese alloy. It's going to give us years of good use and very good corrosion resistance. The tensioning device itself, has a plastic coating on it. It's going to prevent it from sticking to our fingers like the standard steel likes to do. These chains are nice and the fact that they're compatible with all of your ABS and ESC controls on your vehicle.

Another nice feature that they've added, these nice nylon stops. Depending your rim size, the chain may actually, or your hooks here may actually want to rest up against your rim. You just take one of these, place it in the slots all the way around, and it's just a pressure fit cap that goes on. That's going to hold it in place and protect our rim as we drive down the road. The chains come with a nice carrying case. When we open it up we're going to find we've got our package of protectors in there, of course we're going to have a second chain that will be two in a pack; theyre sold as a pair, we're also going to have our instruction manual, we've got a repair packet here in case we we're to damage any of our links, we've got a nice inaudible 00:02:27 and a set of gloves there to protect our knees while if we're using a snow chain, it's in the snow, isn't it So, it helps to keep us dry. We'll come around here to the passenger's side to show you how to get the chain installed.

We feed the yellow end around to the rear to the tire. As you can see, itll join up here. We, then, connect the two blue ends of the cable just by sliding it in and pulling it back. We'll do this right up behind our tire. Get those in and now we'll kind of lither our cable go back around to the rear side where we connect our red link with our red clip here on the front. We now gather up our chains around the rear side here. We'll bring in the tension. It'll go right into the gap here and we'll just bring the tension out of it and we'll bring our auto-tensioner down and connect then right there. Now we're ready to head down the road. That will complete today's look at the Thule XG-12 Pro soft tensioning snow tire chains. .

Review from a similar Thule XG12 Pro in Tire Chains


I am really pleased with this purchase. I recently put them on in the midst of a nice snow shower and it took less than 5 minutes. The fact that they self correct as you drive means you don't have to have them perfectly centered to start with. The links are a lot smaller that I expected, so they are easy to handle. I have learned that as the roads get better to leave them off because you definitely don't want to use them on pavement, as the vehicle will shake like crazy. You also don't want to go more than about 20 mph with them on. 116104

Review from a similar Thule XG12 Pro in Tire Chains


It is going to dump 10 inches of snow with some ice on us tomorrow and I am looking forward to chaining up. These chains install so easily. I was very impressed. I put on a set and watched my wife install the other set. No problem. As soon as you drive off, they center and tighten themselves perfectly. I was amazed. Given the quality of workmanship apparent in this product, I am confident they will perform above my expectations. Do not waste your time with cheap import chains. Buy these and be very satisfied. 6426

Review from a similar Thule XG12 Pro in Tire Chains


I have never before found tire chains for my BMW X5 (315/35R20) tires, without having them custom made. So I was somewhat doubtful about the Thule claims, regarding both size and ease of installation. However, the tire chains were exactly as advertised; easily installed and removed, and a perfect fit. Better yet was the help I received from Vince C., who eased my mind regarding any issues I might have. I must commend Vince, who's knowledge of the product, and attitude, was a pleasure to encounter. 170239

Review from a similar Thule XG12 Pro in Tire Chains


After receiving these, I put them on one tire in good weather. My 2012 Ram with 265/70 17 was setting in a gravel driveway. I had the chain on in about two minutes. I have no idea when these will be needed but when the time comes I certainly won't hesitate putting them on. When I drove truck, I hated getting out and chaining up. Nice to be retired. Even nicer not worrying about having to chain up. And if I may, it's nice NOT to see....made in China. Way to go Italy! 59288
