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

Review from a similar XD16 Pro in Tire Chains

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.


Review from a similar XD16 Pro in Tire Chains

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!


Review from a similar XD16 Pro in Tire Chains

I have not used these yet. But I have purchased before and they are a well made product. Easy installation once you do it once, read the directions.

  • Tire Chain Recommendations for 285/65-20 Tires on a 2015 GMC Sierra 2500
    For tire size 285/65-20 there are no V-Bar/cam tire chain options. I recommend square link chains such as # KON74FR which offer the best traction in snow and ice. Be sure to consult the vehicle owner's manual for additional information on the use of chains. I have included a link to our help article on tire chains for you.

  • Tire Chain Recommendation for 285/75R18 Tires on a 2015 Ram 3500
    For your application I recommend going with the Konig Snow Tire Chains XD16 Pro # KON74FR because they are the only tire chains that use links instead of cables and are Class S rated for the 285/75R18 tires on your 2015 Ram 3500. This means that the chains are for low clearance situations so that the chains are less likely to tear stuff up behind your tires. Be sure to reference your owner's manual for any specifics about using chains on your vehicle. Pricing for this chain set can be...

  • Tire Chains For A 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 With 295/70R-18 Tires
    For your 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, I recommend the Konig Snow Tire Chains # KON74FR. These chains are class S compatible, and will fit your 295/70-18 tire size you mention. Class S tires compatible may be required since you have fairly large tires and may have restricted wheel well clearance.

  • Recommended Tire Chains for 2022 Ram 1500 TRX
    Based on my research the 2022 Ram 1500 TRX comes with LT325/65R18D tires. Since you will need Class S rated chains I recommend the Konig Tire Chains # KON74FR. These use a diamond pattern with square links. However, you will need to check to make sure these are compatible with your truck. The 2022 owner's manual does not list the TRX or TRX tires under tire chains, so I recommend reaching out to a local dealer to make sure this tire size is chainable on your vehicle.

  • What Tire Chains do You Recommend for My 285/65-20 Tires on My 2019 Ford F-350?
    I have a great tire chain solution for your 285/65-20 tires on your 2018 Ford F-350. Unfortunately, the Titan Chain # TC2536 will not fit your wider tires. With that being said, we do carry similar chains that do fit. For that route, I recommend the Konig Snow Tire Chains - Diamond Pattern - D Link - XD16 Pro # KON74FR. Not only do these come with integrated tensioners like the # TC2536, the Konig chains are Class-S rated which means they are specially designed for vehicles with limited...

  • Are There Konig Snow Tire Chains XD16 Pro for 35/12.50-20 Tires
    I do have an option for you but the Konig Snow Tire Chains XD16 Pro are not offered for 35/12.50-20 tires. Instead, I recommend the Pewag Starwave Tire Chain part # PW94FR which is the only option without the traditional ladder style pattern. They have a unique link shape which offers better traction as the sharp edges have more bite in snow and ice. I have attached our full list of tire chain options for this size below.

  • Recommended Tire Chains For a 2019 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon With 35" X 12" Tires
    I recommend the Titan Chain Snow Tire Chains # TC3231 for your 2019 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon. These ladder pattern twist link chains will provide great traction in deep snow and mud. You will need the Titan Chain Multi-Arm Rubber Tire Chain Adjuster # TCMA2 to keep the chains tight on the tires. We do have the Konig Snow Tire Chains # KON74FR which is a division of Thule. While these are very good chains and easy to install they are not rated for off road use.

  • Tire Chain Fit for 325/60-20 Tires on 2020 Ford F-150
    Titan Chain confirms that their # TC2539 Diamond HD Alloy Square Link tire chains are indeed a fit for the 325/60-20 tire size, but they aren't Class S rated which is what your owner's manual specifies. Class S chains will provide greater clearance to the wheel well and the braking/suspension components located inboard of the wheels. We offer two options that are Class S rated and are compatible with your 325/60-20 tires. The Titan # TC2039 are cable chains which are intended to provide...
