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

The Konig CG-9 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, easy to mount, and give you constant traction - and they're lightweight and compact, so they store in your vehicle nicely too. 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 self-tension and self-center as you drive, ensuring a perfect fit, no matter the profile or wear pattern of your tire. Plus, you only have to get out of your vehicle one time - once they're installed, there's no need to drive forward, stop, and recheck their tension.

Class S Designation

SAE Class S tire chains are designed for use on passenger vehicles with restricted wheel-well clearance. Most newer cars, vans, and small trucks - especially those with large aftermarket tires - will require Class S chains. If you're unsure about the class of your vehicle, consult your vehicle's owner's manual.

SAE Class S Clearance Diagram

These chains will fit your tires provided there is both:

  • A - a minimum of 1.46" (37 mm) between the top of the tire tread and the wheel well
  • B - at least 0.59" (15 mm) between the tire's sidewall and the vehicle

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. Pull it and secure to the red hook attached to the tensioning cable.

Stretch the hook across the tire

Drive forward so that the chains can self-tension and self-center, giving you a perfect fit.

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 cables 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

2017 Subaru WRX

Quick Service! My son headed to NH next weekend just wanted to be prepared. I've used chains for years...always a pain. Your innovations are appreciated.


Got me through the Snoqualmie pass near Seattle. Easy to put on. Easy to take off. Great!

Toyota Sienna

I bought this snow chain for my Toyota Sienna for this ski trip in Utah. I tested putting it on in my drive way. It takes about 2 minutes to install.


Product is pretty nice and easier to put on than regular diamond chains. I like the self-tightening feature and the case it comes in. These are much more expensive than conventional diamond chains.


My son was very pleased with my purchase





This chains saved me last winter. I was driving through a winter storm. I like that it is easy put on. I did it without practicing beforehand. The ride with the chains were smooth and not very bumpy. The chains hold up really well even after a year. The price is reasonable.
One thing that I dont like is that the box that came with the snow chains arrived with broken clips. I did not bother asking for a new box, so i am using duct tape to keep it closed. I recommend this product if you are looking for a snow chain


Well, I would say a little harder to put on correctly than advertised, but I called customer support and they helped me. Also watching all of the videos helped because each one was worded a little differently. Definitely would suggest one or two dry runs before you are in the elements. Important to realize to slide the plastic coated cable to the backside of the tire and center the chains after connecting the plastic coated cable and the small red hook. Once I figured this out I was able to almost perfectly center the chains (at least on one tire). On the other tire I couldn't get it perfectly centered (see photos). After about an 1/8 of a mile of very low speed driving it still didn't center but maybe with more driving at higher speeds it would. Also important to remember to have the yellow end of the chain on your right hand side beofore sliding behind the tire and making the first connection. One question I still have is how tight to pull the tension cable after you put it through the stop device. Every video seems a little bit different as to how tight you pull the cable by hand before connecting it to the tensioning device. As far as taking them off I tried four times to line up my car perfectly so I wouldn't have to drive over the chains after disconnecting them but this was not possible for me. So, with the plastic coated cable on top I just disconnected the connections in reverse and then put all the hooks and components off to the side and drove off/over the chains, which seemed to work fine. Will see how they work in the snow and ice but I'm hopeful they will do well.


I bought these chains for my daughter who is moving to Chicago from California. The owners manual of her Jeep Compass warns about the limited clearance and these chains were perfect because of their low profile. I also bought these particular chains (I now own 3 sets) for their ease of use. Snow is not something that any of my girls are used to being from California's Central Valley and putting chains on was not something that any of them had the faintest clue about. These chains are so easy to install that my wife and daughter were actually racing each other the other day to see who could install faster.

My youngest daughter and wife are driving across county as I type this review carrying with them these Thule chains and I am confident that they and their Thules will handle any snow they encounter.


Easy on after untangling. Safely up the mountain with no problem. Easy off. Found that individually bagging each chainset reduced tangling and eased storage in the provided carrying case. Hope this helps. Thanks for being there.


I bought two tire chains for the front wheels of my 2016 Toyota Prius C one year ago and they work wonderfully— I drove to the mountain so many times to ski and it was pretty easy to put the chains on and off as needed, with a little practice (definitely practice at home first!). But they make driving in the snow/ice WAY safer. Highly recommend


Great customer service, easy size guide. Great selection.


These Konig chains are incredible. I used them recently in Vermont during a 25" snow storm. I parked under an overhead at a Home Depot and put them on the SUV. It took about 10-15 minutes just because I'm super-slow when doing these things. However, once on, I easily got up the hill. I had so much confidence, I stopping several times to help push other people and their cars which were stuck. I took them off the next day since they were no longer necessary. As with most all, not advisable to go over 30 MPH. I wish someone can make chains that can adapt to higher-speeds since highway driving during a blizzard is always possible. But I understand why it's difficult to do so.


Pleased with the quality of the chains that come in a convenient plastic case for tidy storage in the trunk. I have not used them yet but assume they will be easy to put on the car. They are as advertized and ETrailer did everything required in processing my order and shipping. There were no complications. I would use them again when I need different chains for a different car.


These fit fine on stock-size tires, and ran pretty smoothly on snow covered roads. Other than the untangling issue other reviews mention, these chains are pretty easy to put on. My initial install was in the snow. Initial side took several minutes to put on, but once figured out, other side went on much quicker.


Makes all the difference. Pain to put on for the first few times.

Easily gets me up my nightmare driveway. Nice carrying case.


Ist time putting them on, it took me 15 minutes for both wheels. Two families me installed them and said they are going to buy them.


only got to use them twice. But in their few hours of service they performed wonderfully. Attached well onto my wheels and made me feel comfortable while driving. Bit of a pain to install being actually metal chains as opposed to tire socks, but they weren't too bad once you got the hang of where to connect them all.


I bought these as a gift for my son. He LOVES them!! He had never used chains before and these Konig tire chains are easy to put on and off. Plus they work GREAT!! Thank you etrailer for yet ANOTHER GREAT PRODUCT!


Chains broke after ~4 uses - one of the links down the center of the tire. I've used chains for years, they were installed correctly and I always drive less than 30mph. Luckily I still had my old chains in the car to get home.


I purchased a pair of these chains for a 2019 Subaru Outback. We travel steep gravel roads in to our vacation cabin in North Carolina which can get both snow and ice. While the Outback might well be able to get up some of the steeper sections even with ice, getting down through the iced up switchbacks safely would be a huge gamble. These chains fit the tires perfectly and with a little practice in fair weather conditions, fitting them in even the worst conditions has been a breeze. Having owned traditional ladder-style chains for another vehicle, the color-coded markings on these make finding the connection points and adjusting tension much easier. Removal is also very quick if you need to transition back to cleared pavement as we often do. We have fared well with using just a pair on the front tires. If you need low-profile chains for your vehicle, these are a great match.


I swore off tire chains over 10y ago due to the hassle of installation, usually in blizzard conditions at night on the side of the road. Alas, the State of California sees fit to require them on mountain passes. So I find these and etrailer helps me out with fitment and other questions.

The chains are, as advertised, are fairly easy to install (way easier than the cheapies at the local auto parts store). The self-tensioning system seemed to work but I may give a tug on them just to make sure they are taut as possible as I did get a fair bit of scuffing on my aluminum rims (from the parts that are plastic covered/coated to prevent scratching vibrating slightly against the rim). I think if the chain self-tensioned a bit tighter this may not have happened.

Overall, a good product, seemed to work in a couple inches of snow, but not in 2 feet (duh) of white stuff! Vibration wasn't too bad on the dry patches of asphalt and the chains generally seemed to hold up well from the limited use I've given them. I would recommend them, just make sure they are taut enough to not tap against your rim.


I wasn't sure what to purchase. The agent on the phone was absolutely wonderful. Helping me find tire size and locating the correct size chains for my tires.

  • Correct Konig CG-9 Tire Size for 2022 Tesla Model 3 235/40-19
    While Tesla would have a good idea on what tire chains would fit their vehicles Konig would have the most accurate fit info as all they do is fit tire chains to tire sizes. Unless Tesla came out and had a special reason for the 103 # TH00023103 (which is not something we've ever seen a manufacturer do) I would stick with what Konig recommends with the 102 size which I just confirmed as a fit for your tire size of 235/40-19 with the part # TH00023102.

    The Konig Tire Chains # TH01221102 (CB-12 102) and Konig Tire Chains # TH00023102 (CG-9 102) are virtually the same except that the # TH01221102 has assisted tensioning and the # TH00023102 is self tensioning. With the assisted tensioning you would have to kind of play around with the tensioning to get it perfect for your tires, whereas the self tensioning you can just pull on the chain and it will tighten and lock into place and the excess can just easily be clipped up.

  • What Snow Tire Chains do You Recommend for My 2019 Ford Fusion with 235/40-19 Tires?
    Thanks so much for your kind words! The reason why manufacturers typically say that you should not use tire chains is to "wash their hands" of any liability just in case damage occurs to components inside the wheel well of your vehicle. This is extremely common. However, if you measure to make sure that you have enough wheel well clearance with your 235/40-19 tires on your 2019 Ford Fusion, this dramatically reduces the potential for damage to wheel well components. For a set of tire chains...

  • How Many Snow Tire Chains Do I Need on 2018 Subaru WRX?
    If ever you aren't sure about what tires you need to chains on, you can find out by reading your owner's manual. I looked through Subaru's 2018 WRX and WRX STI/RA Owner's Manual and you can double-check yours as well. Since you have a small wheel clearance, Subaru asks you to be extra careful with installing traction devices and that you only use Class S devices like the Konig Self-Tensioning, Low-Profile Snow Tire Chains # TH00023102. The manual says to only install them on your front...

    The Konig tire chains part # TH01221102 that you referenced are a confirmed fit for your 2018 Toyota Camry tire size of 235/45-18 but they do not have "rim protection" so there is a chance they could scratch the rims.
