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.




by:

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.




by:

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




by:

Very good product and a great experience ordering from e-trailer. Highly recommend!!

Good quality, reasonable price, easy to install and a handy case. A must have for peace of mind and travel over the mountain passes.

Installed for preparation. Went well. Had one cable connect point turn “in” instead of “out”. Caused chain to not quite fit on tire. Corrected and finished. 15 minutes without the issue. 31’ class C Ford E450.

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.

Service was great, chains came very quickly. Have not used them yet but they seem like great quality




by:
2017 Mazda CX-5

I was impressed by the great customer service! I have tried the chains on my 2017 Mazda CX5 and the chains appear to fit. My trip to snowy areas is in one week so I haven't tried the chains in the snow as yet, the only reason for my 4 stars instead of 5. I feel confident that they will work if needed. Thank you.




by:

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.

Just received them so I haven't got to try them yet... but I must say your shipping was incredibly fast. Thank you.

2011 Honda CR-V

My wife & I bought these for a wintertime trip to the Maritimes. We found them easy to apply to our front tires. Even though we didn’t get much use due to missing the first snow in Canada on the way back to the US, it is one of the questions you may be asked at the border crossing. Having these chains gave us peace of mind. I highly recommend them.




by:

Awesome product. I visited etrailer.com with no knowledge on snow chains for a class A rv. After perusing the website, I was able to find exactly what I needed. I was 100% confident with my purchase. I received it promptly in a compact carrying case.




by:

Good: Very easy installation. No tools required. The chain case have enough room for gloves & knee pads (I highly recommend) and screw drive & pliers (good to have, just in-case).
Bad: The included instruction lacks information of tire sizes that can be used with this item.




by:

Works as advertised and etrailer was super helpful guiding me to choose the right option




by:

Good product overall, only downside is the install, they are a little difficult to put on.
Used on my trailer while towing on snowy roads.




by:

Great service
Items arrived as described

Prompt professional service

Quick delivery, product in line with the description, fits perfectly my vehicle's wheels.
Now I just have to wait for the snow :)

After a year Im still very happy. I havent had to use them a lot but when I need them its usually because things are pretty gnarly and I love how easy they are to get on. Even in mountainous Colorado terrain with a heavy 2WD van, they work great.

  • Recommend Snow Chains for 225/75-R16 Tires on Dodge MB Sprinter 2500
    Before purchasing snow tire chains for your Dodge Sprinter, you will want to check your vehicle owners manual to make sure there are not any restrictions for using snow chains. The item you selected, Thule Standard Snow Tire Chains, part # TH01571245, will fit the 225/75-16 tires on your Dodge MB Sprinter. These Thule Chains have D-shaped links for improved traction in snow or ice. The Thule # TH01571245 includes 2 chains, instructions, a kneeling mat, gloves, and a sturdy carrying container. I...

  • Use of Snow Tire Chains on my 2006 LEXUS RX330 AWD
    You would want to have snow tire chains on all the powered drive wheels of your 2006 Lexus RX330, but you also want to follow the guidelines of the vehicle manufacturer. Having the chains on the front will be beneficial since the front axle is a powered drive axle. Also with chains on the front wheels, there is an increase in steering stability and braking. Your Lexus should have 225/65-17 size tires. For tire chains for your Lexus, I would recommend the Thule XB16 Tire Chains, part #...

    You could use 2 sets of tire chains on your intelligent 4-wheel drive system on your 2012 Ford Escape but only 1 set would be required on the main drive wheels. The Thule Snow Tire Chains # TH01571245 are an excellent choice. I recent had the chance to install many of the different chains that we carry and these are amongst the easiest to install. You will also want to consult the vehicle owners manual for specific information on the use of tire chains. I have included a link to the...

  • Snow Chain Recommendation for a 2014 Nissan Rogue with 225/65-17 Tires
    If the tire size you have on your 2014 Nissan Rogue is 225/65-17 yes, the part # TH01571245 would be the correct size Thule tire chain for you. For optimum traction for braking, turning, and accelerating you would want to use tire chains on all sets of wheels. However, just running one set of 2 chains on the drive wheels of a vehicle is acceptable as well. If you plan on doing a lot of snow driving for an extended period of time I would go with 2 sets. If it's mainly just for short trips...

  • Snow Chain Recommendation for a 2008 Infiniti G37S and a 2007 Volkswagen Rabbit 2.5L
    Before installing tire chains on either vehicle you will want to consult the owners manual of both vehicles to determine if there are any tire chain restrictions. First let's start with the 2008 Infiniti G37S with the 245/45R19, for that I would recommend the Thule Self-Tensioning Chains part # TH01571245. These are great chains that will last you a long time and are easy to install.

  • Will the Thule Self-Tensioning, Low-Pro Snow Tire Chains # TH04115267 fit Tires with Studs
    Yes, regardless of whether or not a tire has studs all that matters when picking out a set of tire chains is the tire size. If the Thule Self-Tensioning, Low-Pro Snow Tire Chains # TH01571245 that you referenced is confirmed to fit your tire size it will work well for you. You still need to check the owners manual of your vehicle to determine if there are any restrictions on snow chain usage.

  • Tire Chains for a 2014 Roadtrek RS Adventurous RV with 215/85-16 Tires
    For Thule tire chains, the XB-16 chains are what they recommend for Vans and RVs. Some of the tires sizes for these different vehicles overlap so that is why you see both when you enter a tire size or go through the fit guide. I would go with the XB-16 chains, # TH01571245, since they are designed for for RVs. Class S chains require the least amount of clearance around the tire and are typically required on minimal clearance vehicles. The XB-16 chains are not Class S compatible meaning...

  • Local Regulations Regarding Tire Chain Usage
    Laws regarding the use of tire chains vary greatly from state to state, and even from area to area within a particular state. If road conditions warrant it, many states will use highway signage stating that any vehicle that passes that particular point must be equipped with tire chains. I would recommend contacting the state DOT or State Police in the area in question for more specific information. The Thule XB16 Snow Chains you were looking at, part # TH01571245, would be a great choice...

  • Can Tire Cables be Used to Get Vehicle Out of Being Stuck in Snow
    Yes, tire cables can be used to get out of snow. They don't work quite as well as tire chains like the Thule set part # TH01571245 that you referenced but they make a huge difference over nothing at all. If you let me know what tire size you have I can pick you out a set of chains!

    Installing tire chains to the rear tires of your 1996 Chevy Express Van 1500 will definitely provide benefit in the form of better traction during snow and ice, even with a lighter rear body. If you live in or travel throughout areas where this type of weather is a concern I do recommend obtaining a pair for when they are needed or required by local law. If your Chevy Express is equipped with 225/75-16 or 235/75-15 sized tires (the 2 most common sizes on this vehicle) then I highly recommend...

  • Difference Between Tire Chains and Cables for Snow Traction
    Actual tire chains are better than cables. Chains offer better traction and longer life. They also seem to be more corrosion resistant. Some chains are easier to put on that others. The same goes with cables but the cables are lighter. Cables are good for occasional use but if you need chains frequently then going with actual chains is preferred. Some vehicles require chains or cables that do not stick out from the tire very far because of limited clearance between the tire and vehicle....

There are tire chains designed for passenger vehicles and ones that are designed for the truck/suv applications. The tire chains designed for passenger vehicles will fit the truck/suv tire sized the same but not all truck/suv tire chains will fit the passenger vehicle sized tires. This is due to clearance...

We do have a great option for chains, assuming you have the standard 245/50-18 tires (I do recommend checking just to be sure), and those are the Konig Standard Snow Tire Chains - Diamond Pattern # TH01571245.

  • Do the Konig Standard Snow Tire Chains Come in Sets of 2 or 4
    Tire chains are typically solid in pairs, so you've got the required chains for an axle. The Konig Standard Snow Tire Chains - Diamond Pattern - D Link - XB16 - Size 245 Item # TH01571245 are sold in pairs, so if you wanted to have them for all 4 tires you'd need to order 2 sets of these. These are a great choice though because the diamond D-link pattern help provide much better traction than traditional ladder style chains.
