Konig's innovative design makes the XG12 Pro snow chains quick and easy to attach and remove. Once the chain is looped around the tire and the three color-coded connections are made, the patented self-centering, automatic-tensioning system takes over, creating a perfect fit as you drive away.

Konig snow chains are handmade in Italy of hardened manganese-nickel alloy steel for durability. The dual-sided, 12-mm-diameter, D-shape links provide superior traction for excellent grip on snow and ice. And anti-scratch nylon bumpers protect your vehicle's wheel rims.

Included with each pair of chains are mounting instructions, a kneeling mat and pair of gloves, all packaged in a sturdy, reusable container.

Quick and easy installation of Konig XG-12 Pro Chains

How to Install the XG12 Pro Snow Chain

  1. Spread the chain around the back of the tire.
  2. Connect the plastic-covered, yellow and blue cable on the back side of the tire.
  3. Pull the chain over the top and around the tire. Connect the red hook to the red loop.
  4. Make the last connection by running the red loop through the buckle and then to the red hook attached to the tensioning cable.
  5. Simply drive forward to activate the patented self-centering, auto-tensioning system to ensure a perfect fit.

How to Choose Snow Chains for Your Vehicle

To choose the right snow chains, you must match your tire size. Those measurements can be found on the side of your tire, as shown below.

Tire size on sidewall


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

2004 Chevrolet Express Van

Two minutes. Yes, that is how long it took to put these chains on the tire. I didn't believe the other reviewers' reviews, but found out for myself that it's true. Everything is done from the outside of the tire. Brilliant design! Obviously, it's too early to tell how they will fare in the snow & ice this winter, but things are looking really good!
I bought two sets: one for our Lexus RX350 and one for our Chevrolet 2500 Express van. Both sets fit perfectly. They even supply gloves & a mat to kneel on when putting them on so as not to get wet.
Also, the chains arrived in two days...ahead of schedule.

(The pic shows the Lexus installation, but the Express van installation looked the same.)


They go on, SO EASY!! BUT. :( I've used the about 10-15 times so far and quite a few of the cross-link bars have snapped and separated (the links that hold the opposite sides together). I reached out to Konig for the "5 year warranty" but haven't heard anything back (1+ week) since submiting my claim. Super dissapointed. $XXX chains should last more than a few uses. Warranties should be honored.

The manufacturer will reach out to you.
-- Etrailer Expert Jenny N - 03/29/2022


Installation was as easy as is shown with the videos. However, the trick is removing them. Somewhat more difficult. Still, very pleased with their performance. I'm glad I spent the money for the higher quality chains.

2017 Nissan Rogue

Went on quick and easily. I watched the installion video provided by etrailer. Exactly what you see, my only advice is be very careful to make sure the chains are spread out and completely untangled. If any links are crossed or tangled it won't go on correctly. Also l would recommend practicing putting them on once or twice. Once you have done that you can literally put them on in 5 minutes. The chains look very durable and quality materials. I got these for a predicted bad winter this year l will update after l get a chance to use them.


I have only installed them in the driveway but was very pleased with the speed and ease of installation. I feel this is a very reasonably priced product an should provide years of service. I can highly recommend Konig as a quality purchase.

2017 Toyota RAV4

Definitely on the pricey side for chains. Worth every penny!! Install was a pretty simple. I used the chains during a blizzard:-) we had 14 inches of snow plus some icy spots. These chains made me completely unstoppable. Definitely two thumbs up:-)


Chains fit like a glove and just took a few minutes to install. I’ve never installed chains before and was worried that they might shift on the tire. Not so with these.

Ram ProMaster 2500

Easy to compare different options for my ProMaster. Fast delivery with tracking all the way!

2005 Lexus RX 330

These chains are worth every penny. Female here, had never used chains before. I was able to get these on my SUV on a mountain pass in 5 minutes. Just watched the instructional videos and practiced installing them before I actually needed them. The road was pretty icy/snowy and I had good traction the whole way and kept my speed at 30 - 35mph. I'd buy these again.

Also shout out to etrailer customer service. UPS misdelivered my package and the folks in the customer service department were very quick to respond and open a claim for me. They were even willing to ship a replacement out (fortunately mine were found though). All around good purchase from a good company.

One year later and still happy with the purchase. Would still definitely recommend these!

Works great on my Ford Transit.


did not receive gloves that [online} said were included.

I will have our customer service team reach out to you.

2021 Mazda CX-5

I have only put these chains on in my garage, so this is not really a full review. The chains were delivered promptly and were easy to install in ideal conditions. How they work in real life, I don't know. One minor complaint - the "gloves" that are advertised as being included are actually thin plastic bags with fingers. Not sure how useful they would be in cold snowy conditions.

Ford Transit Connect

Ordered for my Ford Transit 250. Arrived in two days. Brand new packaging as expected and all parts present. Will be using them this winter. They communicated order acceptance, shipping and arrival. Pleased with the whole thing.


Love these chains.
Expensive but well
worth it.
They are so easy to install.
10/10 recommend.

2020 Toyota RAV4

Great quick service with a great produc t.


Fast delivery! I practiced putting chains on in our home garage and it was a great fit and easy installation. Very important, since putting on in snow will add more difficulty. Quality of chains looks excellent compared to chains I have purchased for other vehicles in past.


Easy checkout, fast ship, quality produ ct!


Product arrived more quickly than expected. Original box was pretty bashed up, but someone (UPS?) put the bashed box into another box so the product inside was not damaged.


Easiest chains I've ever used. Really glad I upgraded!

2016 BMW X3

I just finished practicing putting on my new snow tire chains. It was really easy, even for a 75 year old grandmother. The video was helpful. I am looking forward to spending some time in the snow.

Thank you for your friendly customer service.

Ram 2500

Kit well organized..instructions, both video and written are clear..easy to install and in minnesota and ice fishing through the floor boards of a 2500 savanna van having chains will allow me to travel on our lake..thanks for producing a great product

2015 Toyota RAV4

These are the best chains I have ever purchased. Zero complaints! They are the easiest on/off chains I have ever used. Highly recommended!


Great customer service! Great price! And everything arrived sooner than anticipated despite snowy and icy weather! Thanks Crystal for the excellent service!




Very easy to install. I love the way these chais are self tensioning. Can’t wait to see how they perform in snow.
