Konig's innovative design makes the CG9 snow chains quick and easy to attach and remove. Once the chain is looped around the tire and the three color-coded connections are made, the patented self-centering, automatic tensioning system takes over, creating a perfect fit as you drive away. You need to get out of the car only once. To remove the chains, simply unhook the connections and unwrap the chains from around the tire.


Konig snow chains are handmade in Italy of hardened manganese nickel alloy steel for ultimate durability. Features include dual-sided, 9-mm-diameter, D-shape links that provide superior traction for excellent grip on snow and ice. Anti-scratch nylon bumpers protect your vehicle's wheel rims.


Included with each pair of chains are mounting instructions, a kneeling mat and a pair of gloves, all packaged in a sturdy container. Konig's CG9 tire snow chains are backed by a 5-year warranty.


CG9 Installation

How to Install the CG9 Snow Chain

  1. Spread the chain around the back of the tire.
  2. Connect the plastic-covered, yellow and blue cable on the back side of the tire.
  3. Pull the chain over the top and around the tire. Connect the red hook to the red loop.
  4. Make the last connection by running the red loop through the buckle and then to the red hook attached to the tensioning cable.
  5. Simply drive forward to activate the patented self-centering, auto-tensioning system to ensure a perfect fit.

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, as shown below.

Tire size on sidewall

185/60-15

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

Bought these as a preventative measure as my Girlfriend and I like going to the snow. Haven’t had to use them yet as she has an AWD Vehicle but of course I’ve practiced putting them on and it’s a snap (pun very much intended). Additionally they’re pretty light when compared to conventional tire chains, so it’s nice not having to mainline a serving of preworkout before picking them up. Would recommend to any snow going individual!

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.

I just got my Konig Self-Tensioning, Low-Profile Snow Tire Chains in the mail from etrailer.com. I could not be more stoked on the order. First, the product is amazing. Second, I ordered free shipping and it got across the US in under 5 days over Christmas. That's a feat in and of itself. I go out of town 12/31 and will most likely have to use them, so having them here now is great peace of mind. Also, the auto-tracking on the website is HUGE! i went back to get my order number and noticed that it was one click to see exactly where the product was at that moment. 10-stars for every step in the order process from etrailer. Thank you all and Happy New Year!

Nice package, dry fits easily, expect no issue on the road but these are for the time where 4WD is not sufficient so planned use is limited but you have to have them to pass the roadblock. Should work fine on my BMW 328IXGT.

Review from a similar CG9 in Tire Chains


First, I don't think I've ever had better service from an online retailer. Just outstanding. The chains got here incredibly fast. The chains themselves, I've used these before when they were made by Thule. Overall they do not seem as heavy-duty but I could be wrong & will update after I've used them. This time I got the kind without the quick-release feature, as I've gotten that feature twice in the past & both times it was the first thing to go. I was still able to use the chains without it but it was a waste. So I got the other one, where one end slips inside the other & there isn't a quick release, but I expect it will be fine. Just not having to drive back & forth makes it easy for one person to put on the chains & that's really the best feature. I use these on an old honda civic & they've always worked really well. I got bungee-type tensioners as well, since the last ones were always a bit loose even with the "auto tensioner" on 13-inch rims. I will update after I use them but we haven't had any snow yet.

Review from a similar CG9 in Tire Chains


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.

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.

Review from a similar CG9 in Tire Chains


These tire chains have done what I need them to do! I especially appreciate the self-tension system and highly recommend investing in that added feature. I drive a 2WD sedan in a mountain town, and I have a long driveway that can be especially challenging to navigate in the snow, but these chains get me up and down without difficulty.

Review from a similar CG9 in Tire Chains


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.

Customer service was outstanding! They were able to help ensure that I was ordering the correct size tire chains and confirm that the item was in stock and that it would arrive when I needed it (which it did). I also like that Kaylyn was familiar with the product and has used it herself (i.e., she wasn't just reading from a manual, she was speaking from personal experience).

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 etrailer.com for being there.

Very easy to install on my 2011 Prius. This is the first (and only) chain set I've owned. Use for weekend trips in the Sierra during snow season and it's been much easier to put on/take off than expected based on stories I'd head about snow chains.

Comments
Be sure that the last connection, by running the red loop through the buckle and then to the red hook, is attached to the tensioning cable. If you drive forward just a little bit, you will activate the self-centering, auto-tensioning system to ensure a snug fit.

Review from a similar CG9 in Tire Chains


I bought these chains for my 2013 Mazda 3 for a trip into the mountains. I didn't think I would actually need them that early in the year, but eventually I was required to use them. When I unboxed the chains I was a little puzzled since I ordered 'Thule' chains but received a box labeled 'König'. I was a little afraid having received the wrong product, but apart from the branding the product looked identical to what I ordered and some online research confirmed that Thule and König are associated. Would have been nice to have a notice about that though. I practiced putting on the chains once in best conditions at home. It wasn't really that complicated and the instructions are easy to follow. I'd recommend doing such a practice run though, since you don't want to face this for the first time at the roadside in the snow. A few weeks later I was returning from a trip into the mountains and one pass required chains (or other traction equipment, but for me that meant chains). I got the chains out and went over the instructions again and then started putting the chains on. I was glad I had done the practice run at home and got the chains on fairly quickly without bigger trouble (and I saw plenty of people at the roadside struggling with theirs or paying for that service). With that I made it across the pass. On the other side of the pass I found taking the chains off more troublesome than putting them on. The chains itself worked great and it wasn't a problem to loosen and detach them but it's a little inconvenient since the chains need to be in the right position to come off the wheel (it's all in documented in the instructions though). I guess with a 2nd person directing the driver when to stop it would be very simple, on my own I had to move the car back and forth tiny bits to get the positioning right (i.e. i was jumping in and out of the car moving it a bit and checking tire/chain position).

Koenig recently purchased the tire chain subsidiary from Thule, the chains are exactly the same. The only difference is the brand name.

Review from a similar CG9 in Tire Chains


The Konig self-adjusting tire chains were used on 4 trips to the Sierra Nevada last year in R2 and R3 conditions from Jan-Apr. They installed very quickly and worked flawlessly each time. They have been used twice this season with the same results. They have saved time and worked well.


Comments
Chains have seen 2 more trips to the Sierras this year and still working great in snow and ice. Gets my ‘93 Eurovan up into the high country very nicely. Hoping for more snow and expect them to continue to perform. I do wonder how many seasons I’ll get out of them. It may be time to get another set.
