Video Transcript for Konig Standard Snow 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.

Review from a similar XB16 in Tire Chains


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.


Comments
1 year follow-up: I used the chains on a recent road trip to a mountain snow elevation. They worked as a nice option for traveling through the mountains to get to the snow shoeing area in uncertain weather, but be sure to add extra time for the 30mph speed limit when using chains. The tension chain did seem a bit longloose on one of the tires, so I double backed to keep things tight. Not sure if thats necessary.

Purchased your Konig Standard Snow Tire Chains based on the terrific video by Alan. He gave great advice on installing the chains. We reviewed it again yesterday before we tested our installation skills on our 2021 Tahoe. Encountered ZERO issues. Appreciate also the weather protected instructions. Great product!

Review from a similar XB16 in Tire Chains


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.

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!

Review from a similar XB16 in Tire Chains


Bought these for some trips to the NC mountains and finally got to use them in January. I was very impressed with how well these worked. Pulling out of the driveway was nearly impossible until I put them on and had instant traction. Once I figured them out, they installed in just a few minutes. Taking them off after driving was a messy experience due to the wet, dirty snow but very easy.

Highly recommend these.

Review from a similar XB16 in Tire Chains


I got 2 sets of these snow chains and we survived the great California Winter Storm without too much trouble. We were able to go up to 35mph with these chains in the midst of a blizzard. Installation & Removal were fairly easy. Great Product.

etrailer is one of the best online retail experiences I have had in a long time. they are communicative and know their stuff. they shipped it out and it arrived before expected. thank you so much. top notch experience. The tire chains are so good and so easy to use. highly recommended.

Review from a similar XB16 in Tire Chains


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.

Theses chains provide great traction on snow and ice. We use them periodically on a Toyota RAV4 for our 20% grade gravel driveway in the Colorado mountains.

Review from a similar XB16 in Tire Chains


I cannot give a fair evaluation of the product's performance or durability, but I did to a trial fit and they fit as described. The videos provided by etrailer were an excellent guide. I hope to never have to use these things, but glad I have them just in case.

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.

Review from a similar XB16 in Tire Chains


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.

Konig Chains are my only choice for chains. This is a new set of chains for new vehicle; the first set I got was in the early 1990's, for a 1972 Dodge. And I have been using them ever since...

Jesse was extremely helpful with our order for tire chains. The chains arrived in perfect condition and we are now prepared for any winter condition!

Review from a similar XB16 in Tire Chains


The Konig tire chains were very easy to install. I was concerned the fit might be dificult as my 21" wheels on my Cayenne were at the upper limit of the size offered but the fit is tight with no play. Excellent product.


Comments
After a season where Ive been forced California to mount the Konig tire chains twice on almost a dry road I am very happy with the speed of mounting and the relatively quiet operation. They also show no signs of damage due to the dry roads.

These chains were recommended by my car manufacturer. Found them online thru etrailer. The order was shipped quickly and verified the delivery. I tried them on in the garage. They went on easily. I have no concerns traveling this winter. So far a great product with great service.

Review from a similar XB16 in Tire Chains


I am less than helpful as far as a product review, as I’ve not yet used these.
However, as a company, E-Trailer cannot be beat! I’ve ordered a few things from them, and now consider them my go-to place for car-related and trailer hitch- related things. This time I spoke with Geoff, who was very knowledgeable about tire chains in general and this one in particular. Im confident the product will work well.

Review from a similar XB16 in Tire Chains


I got caught in a wild snow storm on I 80 over the Rockies last December. Everyone had to chain up. These chains were easy to put on and performed flawlessly. I had
2 1/2 hours of 30 MPH travel pulling my Scamp trailer. No Fun. Chains of any type are hard on your vehicle, but with that said, they saved the day. I hope I never need them again, but I have them if I need them. One caveat; practice putting them on in good weather.

it arrived in a protective package. The overall quality was same or better than I was expecting. The proof will be how well they last on the road.

  • 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.
