Michelin Easy Grip Snow Tire Chains Review - 2007 Toyota Prius

Today on our 2007 Toyota Prius, we'll be test fitting the Michelin Easy Grip composite snow tire chains for passenger vehicles, part number 9800400. Now we'll be installing these on T185/65/R15 tires. Now these are easy grip composite snow chains that will improve your driving safety on treacherous roads. They're lightweight and low profile, and provide grip with their poly mesh construction and steel cleats. To begin, we'll simply remove the composite snow tire chains from the packaging, and slip them around the tire, making sure that the steel cleats stay centered on the tire tread. We'll work our way around the tire as far as we can, where we can then pull the vehicle forward and finish working the composite chain around our tire.



Thule CG9 Snow Tire Chains Review - 2007 Toyota Prius

Today, on our 2007 Toyota Prius, we'll be test fitting the Thule self-tensioning, low-profile, snow tire chains for passenger vehicles, part number TH00023070. Now, we'll be installing this on tire size P185/65-R15s. To begin, we'll lay our tire chains out on the floor, make sure that we get any cranks or tangles out of the chains themselves. We can then take the blue cable, and slide it behind the tire working our way from the back towards the front of the vehicle. We'll then grab both ends of the blue cable, bring it up to the 12 o'clock position on our tire and hook them together. We'll then allow the blue cable to fall back behind the tire, where it will center our cross chains with the tire trail.



Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains Review - 2007 Toyota Prius

Today, on our 2007 Toyota Prius, we'll be test fitting the Glacier cable snow tire chains, part number PW1026. These are perfect for occassional use. They feature a rugged steel wire covered with case hardened steel rollers for traction. They're easy to install and comply with all DOT specifications. They'll fit either the front or the rear of the vehicle. This kit is one set of tire chains fitting two tires.

  • Will Thule CS10 Self-Tensioning Snow Tire Chains # TH00204090 Fit on 2013 Prius Five
  • You are correct that the fit of a particular tire chain on a particular vehicle depends on more than the tire size. Many passenger vehicles, including your 2013 Toyota Prius Five, pose a challenge to fitting tire chains due to the limited space within the wheel wells. Such vehicles require use of S-Class tire chains whose low-profile construction is compatible with their limited wheel well clearance. The particular Thule CS10 tire chains you referenced, part # TH00204090, are S-Class...

  • What is the Maximum Speed Limit Driving on Snow Tire Chains in a 2013 Toyota Prius
  • Typi9cally the maximum speed you can drive with tire chains or cables such as # PW1030 is 30 to 40 miles per hour. But you will need to check your vehicle owners manual because if there is a speed limit for chains that is lower than that, go by the lower limit. Cables # PW1030 will fit your 2013 Toyota Prius with tire size 195/65-15. I also recommend adding the rubber adjusters # PW100. These adjusters will help keep the proper tension on the cables so they stay in position better. I...

The first thing you are going to want to do is consult the vehicle owners manual to determine if there are any special requirements for using chains on your 2010 Toyota Prius.

For infrequent use or just to have some in the vehicle where legally required I recommend a set of cable type chains such as # PW1030 with rubber adjusters # PW100. I have included...

  • Snow Tire Chains and Trunk Mount Bike Rack Recommendations for a 2011 Toyota Prius
  • First, you always need to go with the owners manual recommendation which seems to be to use Class S chains provided they are not cables or v-bar links. I am not sure why using chains would interfere with the electric/gas hybrid system unless during a braking event the chains cause some tire slippage thus not allowing the battery to charge. For Class S chains that are not cables or v-bars you can use some basic square link chains like # PWPLC1130 with tensioner # PW99. This is a no-frills...

  • Composite Snow Tire Chains for Tire Size 215/45-17
  • Michelin does not offer Easy Grip composite chains for tire size 215/45-17 but we do have a similar product that will fit. Take a look at the Snow Sock, # HE9102, and the Ultra Snow Sock, # HE9108. These fit on the tires, basically like a sock, and are Class S compatible meaning they require the least amount of clearance all around the tires. I have included some video reviews of the Snow Socks for you. Be sure to consult the vehicle owners manual for more information on the use of chains.

  • Recommendation for Thule Snow Tire Chains For 2005 Toyota Prius
  • Tire chains are usually categorized by what tire size they will fit, not by vehicle. Even though tire chains may fit your specific tire size, you should always check your vehicle owners manual to see if it is acceptable to use snow chains on your vehicle. The tire size that your Prius comes equipped from the factory is 185/65/15. I would recommend the Thule CG9 Self-Adjusting Tire Chains, part # TH00023070, that you referred to. These chains are simple to install on your vehicle. Thule...
