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 Tire Chains Review

Today we are going to review Thule tire chains part number TH2004705265. This is one of Thules top of the line chains. This is their XG12. With this part number you get two chains and you have also a repair link. And you get plastic pieces that go on the chain itself to protect the rim, of course instructions, a mat to kneel on and some plastic gloves. A few features of these chains are a patented self-centering and self-tensioning system that makes it for easy, really quick installation and a very good fit. These chains also have a feature of D-shaped links to increase traction and also have double steel plates as well to dig in for superior grip into the ice. 0:39

Alright, next we will go ahead and show you how they are installed. It is very easy. First off, take the one end of the chain. In this case, we are taking the one end with just the little red link. We are just going to run it behind the tire. Grab the one yellow end and kind of pull it up behind the tire a little bit and then make your connection. Next you want to go ahead and take the chains and pull them out to the front of the tire. Then we will take our red link and hook it to this res hook here that is next to the Thule adjuster. Then take the chain and shift it towards the center of the vehicle. And then you want your little bars right here in the center of the tire. Go on and pull the rest of the chain around. And when you are doing this in the snow, it is easier if you can to dig out around the tire so it makes it easier to grip around as close to the bottom as possible. Take the cable, put it through this buckle and then just pull it on through hand tight. Then you just take the cord from the adjuster and pull it down tight. 1:38

OK, once you have your chains installed, it is always a good idea to do a test fit by the way, before you actually need them. And if a part of the chain hits the wheel, what you can do is use the included protection pieces here. They fit in like so. And put the cap on them. And they just press into place and that is it. Within 30 seconds we got our chain on and we are ready to drive. With our chains on, let us go ahead and take them out for a test drive in the snow and see how they perform. With that, that will finish our review of XG12 Pro tire chains, part number TH2004705265.

2012 Dodge Ram

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

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


The directions were confusing at first, but by combining the directions on the case with the ones in the manual it finally made sense. Make sure to wrap the colored end *under* the axle and not over as it appears to be in the directions. Once you figure it out you can have it mounted in a minute or two. Much easier than chains that must be levered closed with air pressure reduced (then re-inflated) for a tight fit. I haven't had the chance to drive with them yet. 238278

Review from a similar Thule XG12 Pro in Tire Chains


Bought these for our X5. Was driving the high road into Yosemite on the (only) day that there was a blizzard. When the car started to slip, pulled over and put these on. They are amazing. Had both on in less than 5 minutes, no moving the car, and you're on your way. Dry fit them at home before you leave. They are really easy, but not intuitive when you're stressed and in the cold. Highly recommended. 239171

Do you have a question about this Tire Chain?


  • Choosing Pewag PWSXV580 Snox Pro or Thule XG12 Pro TH01594245 Snow Chains for 2016 Ford Transit Van
  • Performance wise, the Thule XG-12 Self-Tensioning Tire Chains, part # TH01594245 and the Pewag # PWSXV580 Snox Pro chains are pretty similar. Both use square chain links for superior bite into slick surfaces. As far as ease of installation, I'd give the Pewag Chains a slight edge. I also like the way the Pewag chains have the permanently installed bumpers that prevent the chains from damaging the vehicle's wheels, rather than the more temporary ones on the Thule chains.

  • Tire Chains for a 2007 Hyundai Santa Fe with All-Wheel Drive
  • Class S tire chains are chains that require less than 15mm of clearance between the chains and any part of the vehicle once the chains are installed. I checked the 2007 Hyundai Santa Fe owner's manual and found that Class S chains are required. Also, on all-wheel drive models like yours the manual states to use chains on all 4 wheels. It looks like there were at least 3 stock tire sizes that could be on your Santa Fe. If it has 225/70-16 tires then for Class S Thule chains you can use...

Something that you won't have to put on, drive a little, and then get out again to adjust. If you go with the XG12 Pro chains for your 2014 Mazda CX-5, # TH01594245, you will have chains that are easier to handle and you won't have to manually adjust them. For me, that is well worth...

If you're just wanting something bare-bones without all the bells and whistles, the Titan Chain V Bar Link tire chains # TC2819CAM would work well for you. The V bar chain links will bite into snow and ice, providing great traction. If you went that route, I'd also recommend tensioners like part # TCMA2.

  • Thule Tire Chain Recommedation for 2007 Honda CR-V 225/65R17 Tire
  • For a similar set of chains confirmed to fit the tire size you have you would want the part # TH01594245. However, there isn't an Easy Fit CU9 style chain available for your tire size at this time. The # TH01594245 is a very easy to install set of chains that will give you excellent traction though. You will need to check the owners manual of your vehicle to determine if there are any restrictions on tire chain usage.

The # PW1042 cables are a listed fit for your tire size, and are S Class compatible which means that they work well with low tire clearance.
