Toyota Corolla

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!

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

2012 Honda Civic

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!

Toyota Corolla

Of course since I bought these tire chains, we have not received enough snow in my area of the country (mid-Atlantic) to actually test them under road conditions. However ...
I do recommend that you practice installing these chains BEFORE you need to use them. It is not intuitively obvious how they get installed on your tires, and the pictograph directions are not the best. The mounting system is more complex (but probably more robust and secure) than the simpler systems of 20+ years ago. You should also be aware that after first mounting the chains, the car must be driven for a short distance to take the slack out of the chains and allow them to be fully tightened. A minor annoyance, but manufacturer-recommended, so do not avoid this step.
I trial-mounted my Konigs on the front drive wheels of my Toyota Corolla. They are definitely low-profile and would allow for steering angles. Definitely a lot of Swedish steel in this product; I am sure it will get you through a Scandinavian winter. My chains always ride in my Toyota during the winter months.


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!

2006 Mazda 5

so far so good. i spent an afternoon practicing putting them on and taking them off. got it down to about 7 minutes for both. just waiting for a nice ice storm to really try them out!

also wanted to mention the customer service from etrailer was great. they mistakenly told me my order shipped the same day when in fact the item was not in stock. the next day i got an email and a phone call apologizing and asking if i wanted a different item, a refund or just wait till the chains came in. 2 days later they arrived. they were totally on top of it. thanks...

2010 Toyota Corolla

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.

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.

2013 Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen

These Thule chains look a little light for long lasting, but time will tell. My only comment pre-use is that the directions for installation would have been just as helpful if written in Chinese.

Etrailer has made a few videos to review the installation of these chains onto vehicles to show all the steps to supplement the basic included instructions. It is always recommended to do a few trial runs to familiarize yourself with the process, prior to being caught in the storm

2016 Subaru Impreza

Super easy to install, and the case is nice to store them in my car. Plan on using this winter to get to and from my cabin.

1999 Volvo V70

Price was competitive / product looks good / yet to encounter weather to use the chains ....thanks again!!

I did set up training area with tire off car to teach college kid to install chains.

2009 Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen

I haven't tried the product so this review for the product is relatively useless. ETrailer dot com however had absurdly ridiculously quick service. I would shop them again with confidence.

2013 Volkswagen Jetta

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.

2017 Toyota Corolla

These chains are easy to install. It takes only a few minutes to install them and be on the road again. You don't have to lay in the snow and/or get under the car to install them. Of course the second part is the traction they provide. The car was not safe to drive on such slippery snow pack to no problem at all.


The chains came in earlier then expected. Easy installation and instruction are thorough.

2003 Subaru Impreza

Fast shipping. Nice quality product. Haven't had the chance to use them yet---but the instructions look nice and clear.

2005 Dodge Sprinter

Fantastic! Fast service!


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.

2003 Honda Accord

Great service.. Fast delivery.. Product as advertised.. Haven't used the chains yet .. bought them because of other user's reviews from different websites


2000 BMW 3 Series

A little more difficult to put on then advertised.... Especially if it's cold outside and rubber is stiff..


So far, so good. Got my chains in three days after I receiving a free upgrade in shipping rate. Chains have yet to be tested.

  • Will the Thule CB12 Tire Chains Fit on a 2012 Mazda 3 Hatchback Tire Size 205/50-17
    Yes, the Thule CB12 Snow Tire Chains, # TH01221090, will fit on your 2012 Mazda 3. These chains are Class S compatible meaning they were designed for vehicles with limited clearance in the wheel wells. Since the Mazda 3 is a 2 wheel drive vehicle, I recommend putting the chains on the drive wheels for best control. I have attached an installation video for you to check out. You will notice that the vehicle in the video is different from your Mazda 3, but the installation process will...

    Its hard to say exactly how much force would need to be exerted to get the rubber tensioner on the Thule Snow Chains # TH01221090.

  • Subaru Legacy 2004 Snow Chain Recommendation
    The best way to determine what axles of your vehicle should have snow chains installed on them is to check the owners manual of your 2004 Subaru Legacy to see what they recommend and if there are any restrictions. Having chains on all wheels is ideal though as that will give you the best traction for stopping, turning, and accelerating. You don't want to run chains on dry pavement ever. That will wear them out very quickly and will damage the road. Chains typically have a speed rating...

    Having metal chains in direct contact with your tires can scuff or otherwise cause some minor cosmetic damage, but this can be minimized by installing and using the chains according to their instructions.

    Clearance refers to the overall width or diameter of a tire chain. This measurement is important because certain vehicles have restrictions regarding the amount of available space between each wheel well and tire.
