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 XB-16 Pro 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 and easy to mount. 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 have built-in tensioners that you can just pull taut to adjust the fit. These tensioners allow the chains to fit your tires, no matter the profile or wear pattern. And because the tensioners are built-in, you never have to worry about losing them like you might with other chains on the market.


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 the chains.


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 and tug it until it's tight.


Stretch the hook across the tire

5. Feed the tensioning chain through as many red clips along the side chain as you can, leaving room to still be able to stretch the hook across the tire. Attach the hook to the side chain directly across from the last clip you ran the tensioner through. The hook should face away from your tire.


6. Drive forward around 325' (about the length of a football field) and stop. Check the chains and tighten them as needed.


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.

Video Transcript for Konig Commercial Truck Tire Chains Review

Adam: Hi guys, it's Adam with etrailer.com. Today we're going to be looking at the Konig XB-16 series snow tire chains. These tire chains are going to come in handy to keep in the back of your pickup or in your SUV, RV, to get you out of those snowier, icier situations.What makes these XB series tire chains really, really easy, it has a built-in self-tensioner to basically keep your chains wrapped around your tire while you're going down the road.With most tire chains, basically what you've got to do is you've got to purchase a separate little piece to tension your chains to your tire, but in the XB series 16, basically it is all built-in, so it's just one piece and you just got to put it on real quick and get down the road.These tire chains are going to have a nice, even tire pattern all the way around your tire and it's going to distribute that chain surface to the ground evenly to get you stopped, started, and turning properly.These XB-16 series tire chains are going to be a D-link style made of hardened steel. These D-link style tire chains are going to be in the middle of your aggressive side V-bar style links being at your top most aggressive and your rounded link style at the very, very low end of that.These tire chains do come in a very, very nice, sturdy handling case. It's going to be easy to take them off and store them away without them getting tangled. Some of these snow tire chains have come in a little cloth bag, which rips over time.

This is a very sturdy case and they come in a pair of two and I'm going to show you how easy it is to install these on your vehicle.The first thing you're going to want to do before installing your tire chains is lay them all out flat, make sure there's no kinks in your links or any hang-ups anywhere.One thing you do want to note, you want to have this smooth side facing in towards your tire when you install.First thing you want to do is start fishing this cable to the front of your vehicle, behind your tire, trying to get it evenly distributed behind that tire.Then what you're going to want to do is, behind your tire, grab these cables and lock them into place. And while you're back here, grab your chains and start draping them over your tire, making sure that this little cross point right here is in the center of your tread.Once you have your tire chains in place, next thing you want to do, take this red hook and hook it onto the red link. Just like so.And the next thing we need to do is use the manual tensioning mechanism that's built in to the XB series, and basically all you do, you take the plastic part of your chain, pull back this hammer, fish it in there, and pull it as tight as you think is fit.Once that's done, Konig went ahead and gave us some red color coordinated clips and basically you just snap those into place and then find the right link to get the right amount of pressure. And as you can see, these are very tight on the tire, but we do recommend that you put it in drive, roll it over a couple times, and then come back out and just make sure that everything is just as tight as it was before.Well, that's going to do it for our Konig XB-16 series snow tire chains.

Average Customer Rating:  4.8 out of 5 stars   (187 Customer Reviews)

Get consistent traction and a smooth ride when driving in snow and on light ice with these commercial truck snow chains. Lightweight chains are quick and easy to install. Built-in tensioner lets you easily tighten chain without tools.

by:

Appear well made, instructions for use clear. Installation not difficult.



by:

These chains were way too light duty for me. They were too small to even get through the snow down to the ice. In addition, the connectors are very small and very difficult to hook together with gloves on. Once they fill with snow and ice and they freeze, good luck getting them off as well. Ended up buying a set of regular old chains for half the price



by:

ordering and delivery both easy and timely,Konig included everything per website.Test fit in garage proves correct sizing,thank you



by:

Very pleased with this purchase, I've done a few practice runs putting them on my Ram Promaster van but have not had to use them in a real snow situation in this 1st year (very happy with the ease of use factor and snug fit)



by:

Fantastic customer service, constant follow up from etrailer.com. I need the product urgently and it arrived in a couple of days all the way to Canada! The product is very high quality and was easy to install. I have a cottage with a steep hill and when it’s full of ice it’s very tough to get up even with my 4x4 now I don’t have to put sand and salt down for 500 plus feet! Konig chains are a life saver.

Thank you!



by:

I’ve been running this type of chain on all of my vehicles, including a motorhome for over 25 years they are the best



by:

We received the package one week after we put in the order. Communicated with Customer Service one time and they were very prompt to respond. All told, a solid experience. Now we just have to figure out how to install....



by:

After having these for a full winter season, I can say that they were well worth the purchase. 4.5 stars. Traction was supreme, and ease of install and removal is everything they say - awesome! Removed a star only because the plastic clips that route the little tensioning chain were quickly broken, and the rubber end is marginal. However when installed on my 2wd truck, I pulled a small box trailer up and down a very icy and steep slope (dirt road at scout camp) - without a hint of wheelspin. Same area immediately before chain install had cars and 4wd trucks stuck on a gentle grade. These are not smooth at all on pavement, but a lifesaver when needed.



by:

Great set of chains. I was able to put on in the dark. It was a little trickier taking them off because you need to position the car so the link behind the wheel is accessible, but still easy to do.



by:

Very great product, works very well. However, the instructions are absolutely terrible and it takes a minute to figure out how to put them on. The case is flimsy as well.



by:

Shipping was fast and accurate. When I called customer service at 6 p.m., an employee answered quickly and answered my questions efficiently.

The installation videos helped greatly, and these chains seem to be holding up well. After driving through snow and slush, I tried removing the chains. The tension clip was difficult to open because of the frozen slush. I proceeded to chip out the ice laying in the dark to remove the chains. Overall, great chains and I am glad they went on easily. I make sure to bring them inside after use in order to melt the ice.



by:

I live in LA and purchased this tire chain because I was going on a road trip to some national parks and mountains up in Vancouver. It's pretty easy to out on and remove. Worked perfectly for me. In snow, you can't drive more than 25 miles anyway.

I also like the case that comes with it. I've only used it once and that's my experience.



by:

Theses were exactly what I was looking for, easy and quick to install while not breaking the bank. Been using them for two days now and no problems or concerns as of yet.



by:

These chains are the best I've ever owned. Quick install and take off and a smoother ride than traditional chains!



by:

Bought these two years ago for use with my 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 for driving on the lake pulling an ice house. First time out after buying them, I got the ice house hung up on a snowbank. Threw a set of these on the rear tires and got out with ease. Super easy to instal on the go even while stuck. Only reason for a 4 star over a 5 star is the plastic clips for running the tension chain through seem weaker than I’d like.



by:

More. Companies should be more like ETrailer. Great customer servixe



by:

I've only had one opportunity to try the tire chains so far(not much snow this past year).
The chains were not difficult install and seemed like they would do the job.



by:

The product looks well made and of high quality hope not to need to use them but need it a set for upcoming trip. Fitted for a 2019 RAV4.



by:

Love these chains - so easy to put on and take off that I use them almost daily in the winter (at 10,000 ft in the Rocky Mountains on roads that are often unplowed). 2021 Tacoma TRD Off Road with Falken Wildpeak A/T3s.



by:

Pricier than everything else, but attached well as advertised and functioned well.



by:

Perfect fit, using the sizing guide, for my Promaster 2500 van. Heavier links and more secure tightening system than my previous chains. Love the easy fitting of these chains and no need to pull forward to get them on.



by:

Just received my Thule 247 XB16 Tire Chains. What a great product!! Got them for my 93 Ford Ranger which has 30x9.5x15 tires and they fit great! I plan on using these during snow and ice storms as I work for an electric utility and have to report to work. After viewing the etrailer instructional video I was able to put both chains on in less than 5 minutes. Delivery was quick too and I love how George J from Etrailer sent me an email quickly letting me know that my order was processed and included tracking information too! I feel confident I can count on Etrailer for future orders. Very professional and they have staff experienced with the product standing by if you have problems or questions! Thanks Etrailer!



by:

Product arrived quickly, and in great shape. Product did not include gloves, nor mat, but that's not a big deal. The plastic instructions are truly plastic, which is pretty nifty when considering installation in snow.

Fit on my 2018 Grand Touring CX-5 seems fine - I have yet to use the chains in snow, but I fit them on my car in the garage per the video recommendations. Video installations may tell you that the yellow tab needs to face towards the front of the vehicle - I found this to be false/true depending on if you were on the passenger or driver side of the vehicle. I believe that correct installation has the chain approach the tire from left to right, independent of vehicle direction. That is, if on the driver side (USA vehicle), the chain will be wrapped around the tire with the yellow tab coming from the front of the vehicle. If installing on the passenger side, the chain wraps coming from the rear of the vehicle. This was to ensure that the non-hooked sides (smooth side) of the chains were facing the rims on both driver and passenger installations per the installation videos.

One of the red plastic tabs required re-seating on the chain as it was inverted and would sit upside down when the chains were installed.



by:

Installation was fairly simple. Delivery was quick. I can’t figure out what the gray plastic clip is for in the photo. Any ideas?



by:

I haven’t used the tire chains yet, but they are in my truck ready to put on if needed. Might need a video of how to put them on as a refresher. Thanks- Paul

  • Tire Chain Recommendation for Tire Sizes 215/60R16 and 235/45R17
    Tire chain fits are very specific. Rarely do we see a customer be able to do what you are wanting to do and use one set of chains on both vehicles. The part # TH01221100 will fit the 235/45R17 but not the other size. For that you would need the # TH01571225 which are a fit for your tire size 215/60R16 and are very similar to the other set.

  • Tire Chains for a 2004 Honda Element with 225/70-16 Tires
    According to the owner's manual for your 2004 Honda Element, tire chains can be used as long as they are class S compliant, used on the front two wheels, and on standard size tires that came equipped on the vehicle from the manufacturer. I do have a set of tire chains that will fit your 225/70-16 tires but the Konig Standard Snow Tire Chains (Size 225) part # TH01571225 are not confirmed to fit this size tire. For a similar set of tire chains that will fit this tire size the Konig Standard...
