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!

Ask the Experts about this Konig Tire Chains



  • 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...

These chains also come with nylon bumpers that protect your rims from scuffs and scratches. Another great feature is the self-tensioners that take away the headache...

  • What Tire Chains do You Recommend for My 275/50-22 Tires on My 2014 Infiniti QX80?
    I have a great tire traction solution for you. Unfortunately, we do not have any cables that are approved to use on your non-standard 275/50-22 tires on your 2014 Infiniti QX80. However, with that being said, we do have a great tire chain option that will ultimately provide you with superior traction and better overall quality than tire cables. For that route, I recommend the Konig Snow Tire Chains - Diamond Pattern - D Link - XD16 Pro - Size 279 # KON44FR. These chains are Class S compatible...

  • Tire Chain Options for 275/50R22 Tires on a 2021 Ford F-150
    It looks like there are very few options for the 275/50R22 tire size that you have on your 2021 Ford F-150; the Konig XD16 Pro # KON44FR and the Konig Premium K-Summit XXL # KON24FR. While both of these are Class S Compatible (meaning they are for low-clearance situations) the K-Summits are the only ones that offer rim protection so that's what you'll want to go with. Please note that you'll also want to check out your version of the owner's manual for any specifications regarding snow...

    We definitely have a couple options available for your 2021 Chevy Silverado 1500 High Country with 275/50R22 tires, but always check your owner's manual for use with tire chains. There are some vehicles that do not permit their use, so I do recommend double checking. I will also say that this is a fairly uncommon tire size so our options are limited to two, but the two we have are ever so nice. With that said, the first set we have is the Konig Premium Self-Tensioning Snow Tire Chains...

    I have two solutions for you. For your GMC Denali with 275/50r22 tires we have the Konig Snow Tire Chains - Diamond Pattern - D Link - XD16 Pro - Size 279 # KON44FR. It is an on road chain with an integrated rubber tensioner and works in deep snow and ice. This is my first choice. I love the diamond pattern, it has much more surface area and promotes a multidirectional grip, not just front and back. My second choice is the Konig Premium Self-Tensioning Snow Tire Chains - Diamond Pattern...

    I have a great tire chain solution for you. Unfortunately, the Titan Chain Snow Tire Chains w/ Cams for Wide Base Tires - Ladder Pattern - V-Bar Link # TC3829CAM do not fit 295/55-20 tires. With that being said, a great pair of chains that do fit are the Konig Snow Tire Chains - Diamond Pattern - D Link - XD16 Pro - Size 279 # KON44FR. There are a lot of great benefits to these chains. First off, they are Class S compatible which is a rating for vehicles that have limited wheel-well...

  • Can 2018 Ford F-250 with Tire Size 275/70-18 Use Snow Chains
    I checked the online owners manual of your 2018 Ford F-250 and found that the only wheel size you can NOT use chains with is 20 inch so your 18 inch size 275/70-18 can use them on the front and back as long as they are Class S compatible chains. For a set of Class S tire cables we have the Titan # TC3029 cable style snow chains. For something with more grip and features, use the Konig # KON44FR chains with the superior diamond pattern which corners and brakes better. They also protect...

For Titan Chain Cables that fit your 2022 GMC Sierra 1500 Limited with 275/60-20 tires, those are the Titan Chain Cable Snow Tire Chains - Ladder Pattern - Steel Rollers - 1 Pair # TC3029. In order to safely use these cables on your 1500, I recommend measuring your wheel well clearance for the required length.

    As with all tire chains, it is always good to go with the recommendations outlined in the owner's manual when it comes to your size 275/60-20 tires on your 2021 Ford F-150. With that being said, the # TC3029 and # PW3029C will provide a little bit of traction to your BF Goodrich tires. If your owner's manual recommends against self-tensioners like the ones on the # KON24FR, it is better to find an alterative with no self-tensioner.

  • Tire Chain Recommendation for a 2008 Ford F-250 Super Duty with 275/60-20 Tires
    First, you will need to consult the vehicle owners manual on recommendations for tire chains. It may indicate there why you cannot use chains with 20 inch rims. Usually when chains cannot be used it is a clearance issue around or on the back of the tire. The chains may interfere with a component on the vehicle. If you determine that you can use chains, I have included a link to the chains that will fit the 275/60-20 size. Most of the chains require 28mm of clearance, like # TC2828CAM,...
