Note: To determine whether you can use snow chains on your vehicle, or if chains might affect your ABS/EPS functionality, consult your owner's manual.

The Konig XD-16 Pro tire chains are great all-purpose, winter weather chains. If you live in an area where you're likely to get periodic snow and ice, these Konig chains are perfect because they're durable and easy to mount. If you're more likely to see seriously icy conditions, you may want a chain with V-bar links that can really bite into the ice to give you maximum traction.

These chains are among the easiest and fastest to install because they have built-in tensioners that you can just pull taut to adjust the fit. These tensioners allow the chains to fit your tires, no matter the profile or wear pattern. And because the tensioners are built-in, you never have to worry about losing them like you might with other chains on the market.

Confirming Your Fit

If you know your tire size, you may think you won't need to test fit your new chains. But there are a lot of variables that can affect whether chains will fit your specific tires, including your tire type, the amount of air pressure in the tire, the amount of tread wear, and the tire manufacturer. You'll also need to know how much clearance is in your wheel well, which you can determine by measuring from your tire tread to the sidewall of the wheel well.

We recommend that you order chains as early in the season as possible to give yourself plenty of time to test fit the chains and reorder if needed. This way, you won't be stuck out in the cold later with snow chains that don't fit.

You can test fit these chains in your garage or driveway, but you'll want to wait until there's snow on the ground to actually drive with them. Likewise, if you're out in the snow and come across bare pavement, you'll want to pull over and remove the chains. Even these low-profile chains can cause damage to the bare pavement, your garage floor, or your vehicle if they break from the wear of riding on a harsh surface.

Installing Tire Chains

Installing these chains is incredibly simple.

Lay chains on the ground to get all the tangles out

1. Lay out the chains on the ground to make sure there are no twists or kinks in them.

Connect the ends of the blue cable

2. Slide the chain behind the tire and connect the ends of the blue cable, which will sit behind the tire.

Connect the hook and link in front of the tire

3. Around front, connect the red hook to the red link.

Feed tensioning chain through clip

4. At the bottom of the tire, feed the tensioning chain through the large clip and tug it until it's tight.

Stretch the hook across the tire

5. Feed the tensioning chain through as many red clips along the side chain as you can, leaving room to still be able to stretch the hook across the tire. Attach the hook to the side chain directly across from the last clip you ran the tensioner through. The hook should face away from your tire.

6. Drive forward around 325' (about the length of a football field) and stop. Check the chains and tighten them as needed.

Quick Tips:

  • Lengthen the life of snow chains by drying them after each use before you store them.
  • Check out our installation kit with safety lights and a kneeling pad (PO34FRK) to make things a little easier when you're installing chains out in the snow.

How to Choose Snow Chains for Your Vehicle

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

Tire size on sidewall


  1. (185) - indicates tire width in millimeters
  2. (60) - gives you the aspect ratio (sidewall height as percentage of width)
  3. (15) - denotes the diameter of the wheel rim in inches

Konig Tire Chains - Diamond Pattern - Square Link - Assisted Tensioning - 1 Pair - KON44FR

Average Customer Rating:  4.7 out of 5 stars   (35 Customer Reviews)

Get consistent traction and a smooth ride when driving in snow and on light ice. Lightweight chains are quick and easy to install. Built-in tensioner lets you easily tighten chain without tools.


The on line and telephone experience was perfect. The product is great. Easier to install than I thought and a giant leap above tire chains for which you have to crawl under the truck to install them. Workmanship on the chains looks very solid, time will tell. The only reason for my 4 star rating rather than 5 star to total uselessness of the included directions. Watching the video was much more informative and understandable than the included directions. These were intended to be understandable for multiple language speakers, and that's a good intent. However the pictures and symbols are barely sufficient let alone complete and clear instructions. I would recommend these chains to anyone shopping but I would also recommend watching the video on the etrailer website and forget the included directions.

Yeah, this is one of the biggest reasons, we post up review and test fit videos. We don't like to keep anyone confused or in the dark. We would love to see some pictures if ever you have the time to share with us!

2019 Ram 2500

I've had these before for a previous company vehicle and they are awesome! Pulling a 4 ton trailer down a snowy road, they held on tight. Smooth ride.
Excellent place to order from. Fast shipping and great customer service. Thank you!


I had not received my order as of this email. I called my neighbors and located that it was delivered to 2160 Springer Rd . I am told by 2160 the box is in terrible condition, I will confirm and send pictures when I get home on the 20th


Fantastic experience! I could not find the correct size for my car., AutoZone, and others did not carry the correct size for my 2022 vehicle. Thankfully had what we were looking for and they were able to get the chains to me in a couple of days at a minimal cost. Thanks guys


I used these on my wife's 22 Mercedes GLS450, on a recent trip to Mammoth. The tire size 325/35/23 for her car was very difficult to find so I was very impressed with the fit and function of these. We drove for about 50 miles with them over the weekend and were very easy to install and remove.


Amazing product! Excellent look and execution of design. Better than expected fit on tire size too. Recommend measuring inboard clearance between sidewall and upper control arm (any suspension components) to ensure full inch of room. Mine (cityboy Ram 1500 4X4 Sport) was insufficient (half inch) to clear chain on front tires. Still LOVE these chains and no regrets on purchase. Order early as mine took months to arrive (they told me that upfront though so not a dig on company at all). Highly recommend!


Great product but fantastic service! Friendly and super fast overnight!
Best ever! Thank you so much!

These chains are awesome. Easy to put on even if you're already stuck. Great service and fast shipping. Thanks!

2021 Ram 2500



I needed these chains urgently for a family ski trip and William got me my chains in time with 2 day shipping! They were extremely helpful in the order process and I couldn’t be more pleased.


These chains are solid and well built. Did a test fit and were easy to install and fit well on 265/60 R20 tires. I chose Konig brand chains based on other web site forum reviews, but not only carried them in the size I needed but had a ton of information and help videos the helped me be confident in my choice. not only delivered them fast, the communication before and after was great.


Very good chains. Not too hard to put on. Worked very well.


fast and very easy install / removal - bought a set for my son to use also...


Arrived fast. Fit right. Made snow it’s b***h.


Easiest to install chains I’ve ever had!


I do not know. Its too early to tell.


Great Service, quick shipping, and the Konig Tire Chains were exactly what I needed!


I just practiced installing these chains. It went very smoothly while following the easy to use instructions. Pretty quick, less than 5 minutes per tire.


Perfect fit. Great service from etraile r.

  • Recommended Snow Tire Chains for a 2023 Cadillac Escalade with 275/55R22 Tires
    The Konig Tire Chains part # KON44FR are what I recommend for 275/55R22 tires on a 2023 Cadillac Escalade. These chains have a class s rating which means they are very low profile, adjusters for automatic tensioning, and nylon bumpers to protect the vehicle's wheels. They are also very easy to install as you can see in the attached review video.

  • What Snow Tire Chains do You Recommend for My 2021 GMC Yukon Denali?
    Yes, you are correct that your owner's manual for your 2021 GMC Yukon Denali says that you shouldn't use tire chains on your 275/50-22 tires. The reason why manufacturers have this listed is to wash their hands of any liability just in case something interferes with the struts or other components in your wheel wells. This is very common. What we would do in this case is fit on tire chains in order to obey the traffic laws in your state. However, we need to also fit tire chains on your...

    Thanks for reaching out! There is a little to unpack here so bear with me; while my fellow Expert had good intentions and a good idea, ultimately his recommendation is incorrect and we will be updating that answer page accordingly. While the Konig K-Summit Tire Chains # KON24FR will fit 275/50-22 size tires, it's designed for smaller vehicles as the chains are smaller.
