Thule's innovative design makes the CS10 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. You only need to get out of the car once. To remove the chains, simply pull the external quick-release lever and unwrap the chains from around each tire.


Thule snow chains are handmade in Italy of hardened manganese nickel alloy steel for ultimate durability. The dual-sided, 10-mm-diameter, D-shaped links provide superior traction for excellent grip on snow and ice. For even more traction, specially designed steel bars are integrated into the chains help to break up any ice beneath your tires. And anti-scratch nylon bumpers protect your vehicle's wheel rims.


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


Quick and easy installation of Thule CS-10 Chains

How to Install the CS10 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 first running the red loop through the buckle then to the red hook attached to the tensioning cable.
    • Simply drive forward to activate the patented self-centering and auto-tensioning system to ensure a perfect fit.
  5. Pull the red handle to remove.

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 CS10 Snow Tire Chains Review - 2005 Dodge Grand Caravan

Today on our 2005 Dodge Grand Caravan, well be test fitting the Thule Self-Tensioning Snow Tire Chains, part number TH00204102 on 215/65-16 tires. This vehicle is front wheel drive, so well go ahead and put the tire chains on the front tires. To begin our test fit, we will first lay the chains out on the ground to get out any tangles or kinks. Well now take the tire chains with the yellow cord facing the right and wrap it around the backside of the tire, bring it up around the tire and hook the yellow end to the blue end. Once you get the tire chains around the tire, making sure that the hooks are facing outward so they dont puncture the tire, you can take the red clip and the red hook and hook them together. Now that the red hook and the red clips are secured, you can take the silver cord, wrap it through the ratcheting hook and secure it with the self-tensioning cord.

Now that the tire chains are all together, youre going to want to drive a little bit as these tire chains are self-tightening; the more that you drive the tighter they will be on the tire. And that concludes todays test fit for the Thule Self-Tensioning Snow Tire Chains, part number TH00204102 on 215/65-16 tires on our 2005 Dodge Grand Caravan.

I have not used the chains in snow yet, but I put them onto my car. It is easy, and the dismount is easier. You should get thoroughly acquainted with them prior to need, but the learning curve should be fairly quick. I feel confident that their use will be effective because of the agressive design. I have seen other sets of chains that are more impressive, but at 2 to 3 times the cost of these. 59479

Great chains. Very easy to put on and they work great. I have a very steep driveway in Wisconsin with a 2 wheel drive vehicle. Not a good combination in the winter time. These chains are going to make that a whole lot easier! They are loud, but that is to be expected, so no complaints there. 120027

You get what you pay for. The CS-10 is an incredible product. It takes less than a minute to install on a tire on my Toyota Sienna. In about 21/2 minutes I installed the chains on both tires. After about 20ft of driving the chains centered themselves. Highly recommendable!! 27836

Review from a similar Thule CS10 Self-Tensioning Snow Tire Chains


Thule CS10 Tire Chains Meet the Challenge The "Self-tensioning Snow Tire Chains for Passenger Vehicles by Thule - CS10" (diamond pattern chains that feature ice breaker reinforcements) have turned our fair-weather car into an arctic animal. We give these chains the highest recommendation due to their beautifully snug fit; extreme ease of installation and removal; and, most notably, for their performance, providing excellent traction in the most challenging of road conditions. We live in a mountainous area northwest of Asheville, North Carolina. The final half mile to our home includes a drive through a creek and a single lane dirt/gravel road riddled with underground springs that constantly seep water, resulting in hazardous areas of ice when the temperatures are low. Our road, which includes a stretch of steep hill, is never plowed or treated; and when snow falls or ice builds up, it sticks around until it naturally melts. During winter months we have often been compelled to park our car a half mile from our house because of the impassability of that treacherous bit of road. We decided to go with one set of chains for the front tires only, since that's what our 2007 Toyota Yaris owner's manual instructs for our front-wheel drive vehicle. Definitely check your owner's manual for the requirements for your particular vehicle. Also, check for any restrictions your state may have regarding tire chains. The chains are really quite easy to put on; it's just a matter of figuring out how to arrange them into the correct configuration before putting them on for the first time. After that, you know what you're doing and it's a cinch. Our car manufacturer recommends removing the wheel covers, to prevent any damage to them. Taking the chains off is a snap, with the simple tug of the cable and a quick pull-forward of the vehicle. We are careful to make sure the plastic clips are out of the way of the tires when pulling the vehicle forward, to avoid crushing any plastic. These certainly aren't your daddy's old clanky ladder-style chains. No one buys chains for looks; but we have to say, these chains actually look good. The Thule brand is all over Asheville, with many vehicles toting the brand's cargo carriers or bike racks. So, the Thule CS10 tire chains fit right in with the outdoor sports vibe going on here. The one very minor area of complaint is that, while appreciably sturdy, the carrying case is rather difficult to open -- especially if you're out in the cold with gloves on. But we didn't buy our set for the case. It's the chains that matter and they pass the test with flying colors. Our Toyota, outfitted in Thule CS10s, now travels up and down treacherous roads safely and with ease. Simply put, these tire chains have changed our entire outlook on winter life here. No more dreading a forecast of snow and ice . . . bring it on! 4743

Review from a similar Thule CS10 Self-Tensioning Snow Tire Chains


I have test installed these chains on my 2014 Kia Optima. Tight fit but as the chain requirements state in my owners manual and on the case of these chains, they are "SAE Class S" which meets the requirements; so I don't expect any issues. The CS-10 chains go on quick, snug up as you drive, and release quick which I like because where I'm at one of my bigger concerns is icy roads. I drive about 5 miles of road during the winter on my way to work that is in a valley and the sun doesn't hit much of it if at all during that time, so you're nearly guaranteed to need some chains there, but after that often the ice and snow is clear so the ability to pull off to the side of the road and QUICKLY remove the chains since I'm already on my way to work is appealing. I have high hopes for these chains when needed. I will try to come back to this review and update after use. etrailer got the order processed, shipped and to my door in days with the free shipping option; I am very impressed with the shipping, packaging and order handling! Thank you etrailer. I feel as ready for winter as I can! 153583

Review from a similar Thule CS10 Self-Tensioning Snow Tire Chains


Thule Tires Chains I had never owned a set of snow chains before. Found these and asked a etrailer associate if they would work on my 2010 VW Jetta TDI. After being assured they would fit I took a chance and purchased a set. The service I received from etrailer was great. They arrived much sooner than promised which proved to be very timely. The following week we received our first snow fall of the winter and they were needed. They worked beyond expectations. They were very easy to put on and considering I have not installed a snow chain in 20 years that's saying something. They worked better than advertised and if it were not for them I could not have gotten home that night. They even got a thumbs up approval from the Chevrolet Equinox driver that was crossways in the road trying to get up the same hill that my Jetta climbed with no problem. If you need the peace of mind that having a set of quality snow chains in your trunk would give you, I have a piece of advice for you. Buy them and buy them from etrailer. 4349

Review from a similar Thule CS10 Self-Tensioning Snow Tire Chains


Product installation is a breeze. After reading the poorly written instructions it only took about 5 minutes to do a test fit. Very easy to figure out. I live in Montana and use traditional chains on my trucks. I showed my wife how to install them and she was able to do it in the same amount of time. I would test fit these prior to using in cold snowy weather. As far as quality not sure how they will hold up. Thule used a bunch of plastic parts and a bungy cord for the tensioner. I would not want to drive very far on them. Good for emergency use. That's what I bought them for. 59882

  • Choosing Tire Chains for 2003 Crown Victoria with P225/60-16 Tires
  • The CS10, part # TH00204102 is self-centering and self tensioning, which would make installation much easier. The chains are looped around the tire, and as you drive away they center and tighten themselves to the tires. However, the chains cannot tension or center themselves if the vehicle cannot move because it is stuck in the snow. The CB12 tire chains, part # TH01221102 will preform great for you, but the installation is more involved. They are also half the price of the CS10 model....
