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.

Tire size on sidewall


  1. (185) - indicates tire width in millimeters
  2. (60) - gives you the aspect ratio (sidewall height as percentage of width)
  3. (15) - denotes the diameter of the wheel rim in inches

2015 Jeep Cherokee

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.

2011 Volvo XC70

Great service! The chains arrived the very next day. We haven't used them yet, but we read a review online that these are excellent chains for our Volvo. Thank you so much etrailer!

2016 Ford Escape

I received the snow chains at the promised delivery date. I have test fit them on my 2016 Ford Escape and driven around the block, on dry pavement. I can't really comment on how well the work in the snow, but the installation was straight forward and simple, just as shown in the video. My hands were a tight squeeze to fit between the tire and the fender, but doable in gloves.

I didn't look at the directions, so I missed the trick for removal. You need to roll the car forward or backwards until the trigger clip is at the bottom, the same location as when the chains are installed. That puts the cable connection at the top of the tire, where it was when installed. Doing that makes removal as easy as the installation.


I am very happy with and their customer service, delivery were all very easy! Product arrived on time and in great shape! I will definitely recommend them to my friends and family!


Haven't used them yet but I have done a fit check and everything fits perfect. Was extremely happy with the fast shipping and the customer service provided by Etrailer. Will def. buy from again!

2017 Ford Escape

I have used these twice in the snow and they worked great on my 2017 ford escape.


Only used them one time they were fairly easy to install except for the cold.



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.

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.

Review from a similar XB16 in Tire Chains

Fantastic customer service, constant follow up from 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!

Unstoppable with these chains on

Review from a similar XB16 in Tire Chains

I highly recommend these chains! I have a 99 Dodge 2500 diesel that I use for plowing in Northern NH. The ease with which these chains install and the self tensioning system make them well worth the purchase.


Review from a similar XB16 in Tire Chains

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

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.


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.


Review from a similar XB16 in Tire Chains

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

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

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.


Review from a similar XB16 in Tire Chains

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

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.


Review from a similar XB16 in Tire Chains

They were exactly what I was looking for thank you for, a great product, fantastic service, and super fast delivery. Two thumbs up.


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.


Review from a similar XB16 in Tire Chains

Great tire chains- easy to put on. Fit nicely and are adjustable.


Review from a similar XB16 in Tire Chains

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...


Review from a similar XB16 in Tire Chains

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!

Great! The chains are on standby in case I need them!

  • Should 1 Pair or 2 Pairs of Snow Chains Be Used on 2005 Chevrolet Trailblazer 4x4
    Using 1 set or 2 sets of chains for your vehicle is more a matter of preference. Installing 2 sets of tire chains will provide the most traction for your vehicle. If you choose to only use 1 pair of chains, you will want to install them on the primary drive wheels. I found that the owner's manual for your 2005 Chevrolet Trailblazer says that tire chains should not be used on the vehicle due to limited clearance. Rather than chains, a different style traction device can be used. I recommend...

  • Tire Chain Recommendation for a 2004 Chevy Blazer
    To pick out tire chains for your 2004 Chevy Blazer we would first need to know the tire size you have. We have the size 235/70-15 as a size for your vehicle. For that size the Thule part # TH01571240 would be a great middle of the road chain that would last a while (5 year warranty), and is pretty easy to install.

  • What Tire Chains do You Recommend for My 225/60-17 Tires on My 2019 Hyundai Tucson?
    I definitely have tire chains that will fit your tires on your 2019 Hyundai Tucson. From your information you provided, the tire size only includes the first three numbers: 225/60-17. The last sequence (99H) does not correspond to the tire size. It is the load index and speed rating. I did some research on your vehicle, and the owner's manual states that they recommend snow tires over tire chains for your 2019 Hyundai Tucson. However, most manufactures typically say this in order to wash...

  • Tire Chains with 10mm or Less Clearance for a 2014 Ford Escape with 235/55R17 Tires
    If your 2014 Ford Escape has the 235/55-17 tires then I recommend the Pewag Snox # PWSXV580. The chain links are smaller than 10mm and the chains overall require less clearance than what the Ford owner's manual is specifying making them an excellent option.

    The Thule Chains part # TH01571240 will fit the tire size you have on your 2013 Ford Escape SEL. However, you will need to check with Ford to see if they will allow you to use the chains on your vehicle. In some areas you have to have chains to be able to get around so we realize the need for them even when the owners manual says not to use them. If the reason they do not recommend the chains is due to inner wheel clearance issues you should still then be able to use the part # TH02230K45...
