Thule CB12 Tire Chains Review

Video Transcript for Thule CB12 Tire Chains Review

Today we are going to show you part number TH01221102 from Thule. This is their CB12 tire chains. As you can see here, the chains come in a handy carrying case. I have one of the chains in the center also you have a package with some gloves that you can wear over your mittens and whatnot to keep them dry while you are putting the chains on. Also there is an extra pair of links so in the unlikely event that you break a chain you can fix it rather easily. Also there is a kneeling mat so you do not get your knees wet while you go ahead and install the chains. A few quick notes about these. It does feature color-coded connection points to ease installation. A plastic-covered cable runs from behind the tire to allow you to move the chain without moving the car. The links themselves are a dual-sided D-shape that provides greater traction. And also this will not mess up anything with anti-lock brake systems or electronic stability control systems. It is really designed for passenger-type vehicles. We will go ahead and show you how it fits and how it installs on a typical tire.

To install the chain, run it behind the tire and then bring the blue cable behind the tire and hook them up at the top. Then pull your chains from the back side up to the front, and your red loop here on the end will connect to this red hook here. Then kind of push the blue cable back behind the tire. And then this chain here at the bottom will go through this tensioner here. Hook it through this other loop here. And then this part you want to hook this end up as close to this red hook as possible, somewhere on this part of the chain. Okay, and you have them installed.

All right, to remove the chains, reverse the same procedure. Disconnect it, undo this, and then on top here with the hook, pull the blue part back in and just let it fall to the ground. And part of the chain might be trapped underneath the tire, so just let it sit wherever and just drive backward or forward, whichever is easier, to retrieve your chains. And there you have it for part number TH01221102 from Thule, their CB12 tire chains.

I live on a mountain top in Western North Carolina where one of our recent snow falls left 10 inches of snow the first night. I refer to my driveway as The Roller Coaster because it is so steep and curvy and at 6:30 the morning I first used the chains, it was so covered that I had to guess where it was. I have an '03 Subaru Forester and with my Thule chains, I was able to go where the snow plows hadn't gone with no traction problems whatsoever. It was a week before I was able to safely take them off the car, but they're in the back for the next time I need them. etrailer is fantastic! I ordered the chains on Saturday, Dec 25, got confirmation of my order that same day and had the chains the following Wednesday. I recommend both etrailer and these chains without any reservations on either! 6119

I order these to put on my 2011chevy cruze and the fit great. Very important to make sure the chains are twist and kink free before sliding them under the car. It's fully possible to install the chains with out moving the car which it great! I do suggest retightening after driving 100 or so feet to make sure they are still secure. I bought these to help with traction with snow as this winter has been bad so far and I want to be prepared. Easy to install even though it was my first time it only too a couple mins. To install. Very pleased with these and love the storage case to keep the at the ready. 111260

The Thule snow chains look like they will do the job. I test fitted them to day and they seemed to go on quite easy. I go caught in a ice storm once and it was terrible on the highways. It is always good to keep a set of chains in the trunk just in case. 160328

Review from a similar Thule CB12 Standard Snow Tire Chains


I have to say I'm extremely satisfied with these tire chains!! They're so aggressive and work well with my corolla. My at is front wheel drive and the weight of the motors sits perfectly in line with the tire/chain combination. They bite and dig right in the snow and ice. My drive way is very long as you can see and quite dangerous in snowy conditions. I've had numerous times where I've had to slip the chains on and it was a breeze. They're so easy to put on and off. I feel extremely confident throughout the winter season with the Thule tire chains in the back of my trunk. Thank you so much! You guys have great products going! 110489

Hi, Austin. Thanks for the review. I just purchased these same chains and am wondering if you have ever had any problem with the chains scratching or damaging the rims? Thanks

Hey John, no problem. No the chains never scratched my rims and Ive used them multiple times. I recently purchased a new set of rims and I have no fear that they will harm them either. And that was one thing that I was worried about, but they never scratched them!

Review from a similar Thule CB12 Standard Snow Tire Chains


This is my third purchase from Etrailer. As always they delivered, again ahead of schedule. I can't give a complete review of the product because we are experiencing some unusually mild weather but I can say that the product arrived ahead of schedule, looks bomber, and came in a convenient carrying case. Previous purchases include a trailer hidden hitch and timbren suspension support for my 2007 Toyota Sienna. Both were supported by video/written instructions, available on etrailers website, and installed without a "hitch". Etrailer will continue to be one of the first websites I check for all my automotive needs! 30510

Review from a similar Thule CB12 Standard Snow Tire Chains


Ice... I laugh at ice... So... We got stuck at the in-laws this Christmas because the hill up to civilization was covered in ice and we drive a Corrola. Determined not to have this happen again I read some reviews and bought these chains. I put one side on as soon as we got them to make sure they were the right size and they fit my 185/65/15s perfectly. The chains are not round either, but angled. I think they will be what we need to make sure we can get out next time it ices... The video on etrailer was much more helpful than the graphic instructions provided for installation though. Thanks etrailer! 5057

so far so good. i spent an afternoon practicing putting them on and taking them off. got it down to about 7 minutes for both. just waiting for a nice ice storm to really try them out! also wanted to mention the customer service from etrailer was great. they mistakenly told me my order shipped the same day when in fact the item was not in stock. the next day i got an email and a phone call apologizing and asking if i wanted a different item, a refund or just wait till the chains came in. 2 days later they arrived. they were totally on top of it. thanks... 110210

These chains fit my Mazda 626 very well, and I was able to get to work when the roads were all but impassable for the ice that covered everything because of thee rain all day that turned to freezing rain. I was raised in Montana so am used to fighting snow, but this Arkansas freezing rain takes getting used to but with these chains I am not afraid to venture out no matter what the weather. Also, the people at etrailer.com arethe best to deal with, my questions were answered with great professionalism and courtesy. On a scale of 1-10 they rate a 12. 109839

Review from a similar Thule CB12 Standard Snow Tire Chains


Easy to install and great traction! I just used these chains in Tahoe and they worked great! I was a little worried about installing them in the snow, but the design made it really easy because it's almost split into two sections that wrap around the tire instead of having to drive on top of them first. I would highly recommend doing a practice run before you actually need them, as the chains are a little intimidating at first, but after installing the first one, the second one was on in no time. Great product! 162770

Etrailer has made a few videos to review the installation of these chains onto vehicles to show all the steps to supplement the basic included instructions. It is always recommended to do a few trial runs to familiarize yourself with the process, prior to being caught in the storm
