I had a chance to use them. Installation was quick and easy, and they got me up the 10% grade to my house in very wet slush on a packed base. I expect they will help during the next lake effect snow emergency. 62758

Tire chains delivered earlier than expected and are even easier to put on than I thought. The plastic covered rear cable makes putting on the chains so easy and I don't have to hug a dirty wet tire. Will definitely recommend this site and use them again. 171865

Great! Just use them last week in 24 inches of snow. Never got stuck, got me home nice and safe. No one could believe I made it.

Review from a similar CB12 in Tire Chains


This is my third purchase from Etrailer. As always they delivered, again ahead of schedule. I can't give a complete review of the product because we are experiencing some unusually mild weather but I can say that the product arrived ahead of schedule, looks bomber, and came in a convenient carrying case. Previous purchases include a trailer hidden hitch and timbren suspension support for my 2007 Toyota Sienna. Both were supported by video/written instructions, available on etrailers website, and installed without a "hitch". Etrailer will continue to be one of the first websites I check for all my automotive needs! 30510

I don't usually submit online reviews but in this case wow what a great company! I ordered some chains for my Lexus ct200h on a Saturday and got a real live phone call on Sunday from Erika stating the product I ordered was out of stock. She recommended these chains instead and not only were they less expensive but they arrived on Thursday just in time for a California ice storm on Friday. I had to put the chains on for the first time on my way home to my house at 5000 foot elevation. I watched the video before leaving work and as promised they went on in a breeze even with the low wheel well clearance. Great company, great product- I couldn't be happier! 233652

Due to our new residence location (Big Bear Lake CA) I've been researching tire chain specs and options. My past experience was only seasonal, but now that we live here permanently I wanted the most effective design and durable materials....not only for my Jeep, but my wife's Honda. Just received both via UPS last week. Nice product and packaging. Now just waiting for the snow! 584092

Review from a similar CB12 in Tire Chains


Ice... I laugh at ice... So... We got stuck at the in-laws this Christmas because the hill up to civilization was covered in ice and we drive a Corrola. Determined not to have this happen again I read some reviews and bought these chains. I put one side on as soon as we got them to make sure they were the right size and they fit my 185/65/15s perfectly. The chains are not round either, but angled. I think they will be what we need to make sure we can get out next time it ices... The video on etrailer was much more helpful than the graphic instructions provided for installation though. Thanks etrailer! 5057

I use the chain yesterday to bring my Nurse wife who works night shift to her work in the hospital. I live here in Long Island New York and she works in Jamaica Hospital in Queens. The chain makes it easy for me to navigate the snow. Would highly recommend to everyone who needs to be in a road in a severe weather like snow storm. 6215

I like the Chains very easy to install driving in the snow or ice very good grip I did using twice once I drove 16 miles the second time I drove 20 miles one link broke the whole chain looks worn out and the end I will say good chain poor quality 177004


Comments
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. Under operating conditions for which these were designed, proper installation, and respect for all the guidelines provided, these chains will last season after season of use. Links breaking and premature wear are indicative of driving on pavement, we do provide a repair link if that does happen, and always advise chains be removed once you get to payment or lightly covered roads where the tires are able to make positive contact. Thanks again!

Review from a similar CB12 in Tire Chains


I have to say I'm extremely satisfied with these tire chains!! They're so aggressive and work well with my corolla. My at is front wheel drive and the weight of the motors sits perfectly in line with the tire/chain combination. They bite and dig right in the snow and ice. My drive way is very long as you can see and quite dangerous in snowy conditions. I've had numerous times where I've had to slip the chains on and it was a breeze. They're so easy to put on and off. I feel extremely confident throughout the winter season with the Thule tire chains in the back of my trunk. Thank you so much! You guys have great products going! 110489

Hi, Austin. Thanks for the review. I just purchased these same chains and am wondering if you have ever had any problem with the chains scratching or damaging the rims? Thanks

Review from a similar CB12 in Tire Chains


Purchased the Thule chains after returning chains bought from Wal-Mart one year ago. The Wal-Mart chains were difficult to install and one broke immediately. When I spoke to Ricky one year ago to purchase the chains, he was helpful as we discussed the different chain options. The Thule chains fit the car well and are easy to install. Recently used them over the Thanksgiving 2016 weekend in Yosemite National Park. We drove 1- 1.5 hours at 25 - 30 mph with the chains from Yosemite Valley to the outside of the park. The roads had been plowed one time and the drive out of Yosemite was up and down as well as winding roads. We did not slip one time. Chains were required and a life saver. Also used the chains in Sequoia National park. The chains did their job as we climbed the mountains into the park. Highly recommend the Thule chains. 321162

The chains continue to work great and are easy to use. No problems with them so far.

NOTE: Ended up not needing chains, so I cannot attest to how well they would have performed. However, I did a test run and put them on the tires at home (wearing leather gloves) and was pleased with how simple it was. 109648

Review from a similar CB12 in Tire Chains


I live on a mountain top in Western North Carolina where one of our recent snow falls left 10 inches of snow the first night. I refer to my driveway as The Roller Coaster because it is so steep and curvy and at 6:30 the morning I first used the chains, it was so covered that I had to guess where it was. I have an '03 Subaru Forester and with my Thule chains, I was able to go where the snow plows hadn't gone with no traction problems whatsoever. It was a week before I was able to safely take them off the car, but they're in the back for the next time I need them. etrailer is fantastic! I ordered the chains on Saturday, Dec 25, got confirmation of my order that same day and had the chains the following Wednesday. I recommend both etrailer and these chains without any reservations on either! 6119

It's only October in New York. It's a little early to review the effectiveness of the snow chains. They look good, come in a useful compact hard plastic case, and I expect them to keep my car safe this winter, and many other winters. Thank you. 578805

Review from a similar CB12 in Tire Chains


I am a 63-year-old woman with a small frame and arthritis in both hands. I just did a practice run putting on the chains. 1) could not open case, needed to find a clippers to clip the little arrowhead catch at the top. 2) chains were EXTREMELY tangled together and took a long time to untangle -- why don't they package them in internal plastic bags? 3) first attempt to put chains on was a failure because they were still a bit knotted. I found that holding up the circle and letting the chains hang down like a basketball net, then carefully unhooking the circle and keeping all the chains pointing to the interior of the arc, on only one side of the blue "hoop", worked best. After that it was a snap. In spite of weak hands I could get enough tension on the chains (looked just like the picture in the video) and after driving the car forward slightly I adjusted it one notch tighter without problem. Had a couple of snags getting it off, and would appreciate instructions on the video. Haven't yet test the chains in snow so can't give a full rating of the product. Both the Review video and the Installation video show instructions but the installation video is a bit easier to follow. 174739

Great chains. I use a set of four on a subaru outback. Living at elevation, snow and ice. Not uncommon wintertime scene. Pretty easy on (have a pair of leather gloves and headlamp), five minutes ideally to get all four on in the dark. Practice with them before the storm. Very easy off. Will vibrate your teeth out if travelling on plowed roads, but that's not what they're intended for anyway. Take them off and throw them in the trunk. 334656

I used these chains for the first time to get me home after work when winter storm Jonas hit the east coast. The snow was so deep that I only had trouble when the snow started to pick my car off the ground. I made it all the way home with these chains but did notice a few links broke during the 30 minute drive home. I wasn't going any faster than 20-25 mph on the way home. I couldn't go any faster given how bad the roads were. These chains were easy to install and I did drive a few miles before stopping and retightening them as per the instructions. The chains can be used again even with the broken link but I will have to repair them in the spring or buy new ones next year. 236646

Product exactly as described. Easy to install. Bruno and I looked at the chain and said, "now what." After looking at the instructional video we put them on in no time. Hope I don't need them on my trip but ready if needed. 315582

    If you have 185/60-14 tires on your 1985 Volkswagen Vanagon then yes, the Thule Standard Snow Tire Chains part # TH01221050 will work for you. It looks like you provided both the section width "185" and wheel diameter "14" but not the aspect ratio. I would need this to recommend a fit if the above is not correct. It should be listed on the sidewall of the tire after the section width and before the wheel diameter. If it is not then you would need to take a tape measure and measure from...
