Snow tire chains look great.
But storage
hard case was damaged with broken chips of plastic. Maybe better shipping packaging is required.

Toyota Prius

After a couple installs, I'm able to get these chains on/off my Prius in just a few minutes. I live at the top a steep gravel road in the mountains and on snowy/icy days, my car does better than any other 4x4 in the neighborhood.


Got here quickly whereas [online] was gonna take another week or two.. thanks etrailer!

Kia Soul

Made my KIA Soul goes places it should not have . Stayed tight and in place. Put about 200 miles on then in heavy , light and ice. Good steering control.


Durable, easy to put on and put away. Much better than anything offered at the auto parts store in the neighborhood. Very satisfied.

2015 Toyota Corolla

I bought these same brand chains two years ago for my Corolla. These chains have worked extremely good for me on the steep icy highway during a really heavy snow storm. Other cars with the typical cable chains were sliding all over the place, but our car made it through without sliding. I was more worried about the other cars sliding into me, than about my car making it through. The highway was eventually closed down about 5-10 minutes after us getting through. For light snow or almost bare pavement with patches of snow these chains are sort of over kill. I have used them maybe 10 to 15 times but on my last trip one of the chains broke. I believe the ball broke off from the inside hook of the chain. I would prefer if the inner attachment was more like a hook (like they typically use on ladder chains) which I think would be more robust. I have had a number of balls breaking off on my ladder type chains, so to me it seems like that is the weak link in this chain design. Installation is pretty easy but that rubber hook at the end is also hard to install in the cold. Also getting the chains off after that terrible snow storm was difficult. The inner ball/hook was completely frozen together. So be sure to have something in the car to chip the ice away if needed. On warmer, less severe days it isn't a problem. Overall they are a great chain to carry with me for those ski trips.

2010 Hyundai Elantra

I had never heard of ETrailer before I began searching for the Konig snow chains that I wanted. Lower price on a site worries me and usually means you won’t get your order in time or possibly ever. The morning after I order I got an email updating me that the MFG had delayed their order. No big deal because I’m not in a hurry but I replied to the email for the heck of it. I was pleasantly surprised that a person replied to my reply who apologized again that there would be a delay. I continued to get updates from real people daily and throughout the packing and shipping of my chains. I’m by nature suspicious and don't trust a lot of online stores. For instance, the same night that I ordered from ETrailer I ordered Xmas gift from Wilson sports. I could never checked the status of my shipment on their site and when I asked for the status of my shipment I got an automated reply. I received my snow chains and am still waiting for my football and receiver gloves. I have no idea when they’ll show up. ETrailer is run the way a company should be run. I will always search ETrailer to see if they have anything that I need and have already told all of my friends about this company. Thank you ETrailer employees George J., Justin W. and all of employees that handled my order and got my order to me within 10 calendar days. Awesome service!

Toyota Prius

I am very pleased with my purchased. I have put them on my prius tires 195x55rx16. They look great. I'm ready to try them out.

2007 Toyota Prius

Ordered these chains from for my 2007 Prius. First order from this company. Got a heads up call from Preston at etrailer saying there might be delay in shipping ( there wasn’t). Then followed up with call saying they had shipped. Company is obviously ‘customer satisfaction’ focused. Based on my experience with this one order from etrailer I would highly recommend it. Haven’t had to use the chains yet but I know they are quality (Thule) and will work.

Haven’t had to use them yet but carry them all the time. Good for piece of mind. Flying to Salt Lake City this weekend to pick up new Prius. Taking them with me. Thanks.

2003 Volkswagen Jetta

I ordered the Thule CB12 snow chains and received in 3 days! They look great and simple to install. No need to spend extra green on not needed gimmicks. I got stranded last year at Jay Peak...can't wait to try these on my VW jetta snow sled!

Hi.......Just a follow up question on your purchase....Have you used them and did you buy just a pair for the front end...Thanks....Ray
-- comment by: Ray - 01/02/2016


Very easy to install. High quality prod uct


These chains really worked on slicked down snow and ice! Would definitely recommend if you're not going to get winter tires.

2018 Toyota Prius

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.

2015 Honda Civic

Quick shipping and good product!


No snow yet, but product appears to be GREAT as are all products I've purchased from e trailer. Especially is the customer service received from Chris W.

Traded them in on Thule for my new VW Golf Sport Wagon. Have not used the new ones yet either. Great insurance though!

2010 Toyota Prius

I bought these chains for emergency purposes to prepare for a trip from North Dakota to Washington in late November. I haven't had to use them yet so can only comment on the product purchase, service, and price. The service was good, they were delivered quickly and on the date they estimated. I did a lot of research before purchasing these for my low wheel well clearance 2010 Prius. They were a nice compromise between the inexpensive and expensive ones. In addition to the S rating for low wheel well clearance, the link shape are supposed to have a smoother ride, there is some assistance with installation, and reviews were selling points. Note that the kneeling pad and gloves are both thinner plastic. Not exactly what I expected but better than nothing. They came in a nice easy carrying case.


I havent tried the product yet. Its a xmas gift. However the ordering process was easy mostly because etrailer was very attentive to my needs. They answered my calls and shipped rapidly with great follow up.

2011 Hyundai Elantra

I don't think i'm going to have to worry about getting stuck in the snow anymore. These chains are nothing like the old timey ones my dad and father in-law had to play around with. Thanks for the fast service.

2011 Toyota Prius

I haven't had the chance to use it yet--thank God!--but I have taken it out of the container and did "dry runs" and it does become easier with use. I have not taken pictures.

2012 Toyota Prius

Good price and these fit my Toyota Prius which has very little room in the wheel well.

2000 Honda Accord

It shipped way ahead of schedule, and I was very satisfied with that. The instructions could have been better on how to assemble the chains. It took me a while to get them on.

2008 Scion xD

Just got my pair of chains. The fit and finish is excellent. please note, you must really pay attention to the diagram when it comes to installing them. Practice installing them before leaving. Over all, product is solid. I bought these for me 08 scion xd.

2002 Mazda Miata

Easy to use,and work great. My Miata easily went past 4WD SUVs in our snowstorms last year.

2010 Toyota Corolla

Have not tried to put the chains on yet or drive with them on. But the shipping speed was EXCELLENT !!! Was less than 48 hours.

2015 Chevrolet Sonic

Easy to install
For travel to Oregon

Will not need to rent or purchase an all wheel drive

    A Class S tire chain requires 15 mm or less clearance around the tire. The Thule chains that you have referenced, # TH01221080, require only 12 mm of clearance and are a Class S chain. I have included a link to a video review of these chains and links to FAQ articles on tire chains for you. Always consult your vehicle owners manual for any additional specific information on the use of tire chains.

  • Tire Chains for 2003 Jeep Liberty 4WD
    With 17 inch wheels, your Liberty most likely has P235/65R-17 tires on it. If that is indeed the case, the Thule Snow Chain you referenced will be too small to fit your tires. I would recommend the Thule Standard Snow Chain, part # TH01571247. On a 4WD vehicle, you can use chains on all four wheels unless the owners manual prohibits it. If you were only planning on buying one set of chains, use them on the rear wheels. Before purchasing tire chains, consult your owners manual for any...

    Tire chains should be placed on the primary drive wheels. In the case of your F-150 that would be the rear tires, and on your mini van that would be the front tires. For 4X4 or AWD vehicles you can optionally use chains of the other tires for increased traction, braking, and steering if you feel it is neccessary. For your F-150 with 265/70-17 tires, I recommend the Titan Chain # TC2828CAM chains with cam tighteners for all four tires. If your owners manual recommends Class-S chains,...
