Konig's innovative design makes the CG9 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. You need to get out of the car only once. To remove the chains, simply unhook the connections and unwrap the chains from around the tire.

Konig snow chains are handmade in Italy of hardened manganese nickel alloy steel for ultimate durability. Features include dual-sided, 9-mm-diameter, D-shape links that provide superior traction for excellent grip on snow and ice. Anti-scratch nylon bumpers protect your vehicle's wheel rims.

Included with each pair of chains are mounting instructions, a kneeling mat and a pair of gloves, all packaged in a sturdy container. Konig's CG9 tire snow chains are backed by a 5-year warranty.

CG9 Installation

How to Install the CG9 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 chain, 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 rim in inches

Great for passenger cars with limited wheel-well clearance, these wraparound tire chains are only 9 mm thick. D-shape links provide excellent traction. Chains automatically tighten and align as you drive for quick, simple installation.


I purchased a pair of these chains for a 2019 Subaru Outback. We travel steep gravel roads in to our vacation cabin in North Carolina which can get both snow and ice. While the Outback might well be able to get up some of the steeper sections even with ice, getting down through the iced up switchbacks safely would be a huge gamble. These chains fit the tires perfectly and with a little practice in fair weather conditions, fitting them in even the worst conditions has been a breeze. Having owned traditional ladder-style chains for another vehicle, the color-coded markings on these make finding the connection points and adjusting tension much easier. Removal is also very quick if you need to transition back to cleared pavement as we often do. We have fared well with using just a pair on the front tires. If you need low-profile chains for your vehicle, these are a great match.


Customer service was outstanding! They were able to help ensure that I was ordering the correct size tire chains and confirm that the item was in stock and that it would arrive when I needed it (which it did). I also like that Kaylyn was familiar with the product and has used it herself (i.e., she wasn't just reading from a manual, she was speaking from personal experience).

2019 Dodge Grand Caravan

Good quality the fit was a little loose for my 2019 Dodge Grand caravan.

Be sure that the last connection, by running the red loop through the buckle and then to the red hook, is attached to the tensioning cable. If you drive forward just a little bit, you will activate the self-centering, auto-tensioning system to ensure a snug fit.

2015 Subaru Outback Wagon

I received the Thule chains and installed them to make sure they fit my car. They fit great and were easy to install and remove. Even seems like these chains might not be too difficult to install ~after~ getting stuck in the snow (bring a shovel). I know myself ... I probably won't be proactive and put them on before I get stuck in the snow. Ease of installation ~after~ getting stuck is an important feature.

My first impression is that these don't look like "heavy duty" tire chains by any stretch of the imagination. I'm hoping if I do ever need these it will only be for a few miles or less. I'm thinking about ordering a spare pair because if something breaks (particularly if the self adjusting ratchet mechanism fails) I won't attempt a repair on the side of the road in a snow storm. But if I have spare chains with me I'll be able to swap 'em out with new and keep going with a full complement of chains.

The chains did come with some replacement links in case a chain link fails. I think I'll keep a pair of pliers, a screwdriver, and some gloves in the case with the chains.

The main reason behind my purchase is that if I'm prepared to install tire chains then it's unlikely I'll ever have a need to install them. But without them I might be stuck in the first snowdrift of the season. :-)

Subaru Outback Wagon

We bought these to keep in our Subaru Outback. We already have snow tires but having these handy in case of an emergency or getting through chain checks is really helpful. This is our second set of Konig chains (we also have a set for our other car) and they've been durable and reliable. The shipping is also fast!


Excellent Chains. Light weight, easy to install.
Best of all was the fantastic customer service by Jennifer. She helped me
select the right chains, made sure that they shipped on time so we could have
them before Thanksgiving. She even emailed me once they shipped. Awesome
Awesome!!! Will buy from etrailer again for sure!

Fast shipping. Thanks!


Chains are great, easy on easy off can't get much simpler with these chains. Fast shipping! Great pair of chains. I think these Thule CG9 self tensioning, low profile snow tire chains will work great for what I need them for. Thanks for the fast shipping!


Need chains for a unexpected snow storm, etrailer and USPS came through with a fast delivery.


A breeze to put on and take off.

Finally got a chance to use them. They go on easily and they didn’t disappoint in terms of grip. Very happy with these.

Small, thin links makes this a low-profile chain, recommended by etrailer for the 2020 Subaru Outback. Haven't been in snow yet--mid-October--but we have trips planned into snow country soon.

Incredibly fast shipping to US to Canada. Very pleased with service. Product is exactly as described. Have used these chains before and they do the job.

2012 BMW X3

Nobody wants to have to put on chains, but you need them. These are "safe" for my 2012 BMW X3 and are pretty easy to install. Nice, compact packaging. Have not used in snow but am confident that they'll do the job.

Review from a similar CG9 in Tire Chains

First, I don't think I've ever had better service from an online retailer. Just outstanding. The chains got here incredibly fast.
The chains themselves, I've used these before when they were made by Thule. Overall they do not seem as heavy-duty but I could be wrong & will update after I've used them. This time I got the kind without the quick-release feature, as I've gotten that feature twice in the past & both times it was the first thing to go. I was still able to use the chains without it but it was a waste. So I got the other one, where one end slips inside the other & there isn't a quick release, but I expect it will be fine. Just not having to drive back & forth makes it easy for one person to put on the chains & that's really the best feature. I use these on an old honda civic & they've always worked really well. I got bungee-type tensioners as well, since the last ones were always a bit loose even with the "auto tensioner" on 13-inch rims. I will update after I use them but we haven't had any snow yet.


Review from a similar CG9 in Tire Chains

Well, I would say a little harder to put on correctly than advertised, but I called customer support and they helped me. Also watching all of the videos helped because each one was worded a little differently. Definitely would suggest one or two dry runs before you are in the elements. Important to realize to slide the plastic coated cable to the backside of the tire and center the chains after connecting the plastic coated cable and the small red hook. Once I figured this out I was able to almost perfectly center the chains (at least on one tire). On the other tire I couldn't get it perfectly centered (see photos). After about an 1/8 of a mile of very low speed driving it still didn't center but maybe with more driving at higher speeds it would. Also important to remember to have the yellow end of the chain on your right hand side beofore sliding behind the tire and making the first connection. One question I still have is how tight to pull the tension cable after you put it through the stop device. Every video seems a little bit different as to how tight you pull the cable by hand before connecting it to the tensioning device. As far as taking them off I tried four times to line up my car perfectly so I wouldn't have to drive over the chains after disconnecting them but this was not possible for me. So, with the plastic coated cable on top I just disconnected the connections in reverse and then put all the hooks and components off to the side and drove off/over the chains, which seemed to work fine. Will see how they work in the snow and ice but I'm hopeful they will do well.


Review from a similar CG9 in Tire Chains

Chains broke after ~4 uses - one of the links down the center of the tire. I've used chains for years, they were installed correctly and I always drive less than 30mph. Luckily I still had my old chains in the car to get home.

Customer Service will reach out about the 5 year warranty on these chains.

Review from a similar CG9 in Tire Chains

These tire chains have done what I need them to do! I especially appreciate the self-tension system and highly recommend investing in that added feature. I drive a 2WD sedan in a mountain town, and I have a long driveway that can be especially challenging to navigate in the snow, but these chains get me up and down without difficulty.


Review from a similar CG9 in Tire Chains

Bought these as a preventative measure as my Girlfriend and I like going to the snow. Haven’t had to use them yet as she has an AWD Vehicle but of course I’ve practiced putting them on and it’s a snap (pun very much intended). Additionally they’re pretty light when compared to conventional tire chains, so it’s nice not having to mainline a serving of preworkout before picking them up. Would recommend to any snow going individual!


Review from a similar CG9 in Tire Chains

Easy on after untangling. Safely up the mountain with no problem. Easy off. Found that individually bagging each chainset reduced tangling and eased storage in the provided carrying case. Hope this helps. Thanks for being there.


Review from a similar CG9 in Tire Chains

I bought these chains for my daughter who is moving to Chicago from California. The owners manual of her Jeep Compass warns about the limited clearance and these chains were perfect because of their low profile. I also bought these particular chains (I now own 3 sets) for their ease of use. Snow is not something that any of my girls are used to being from California's Central Valley and putting chains on was not something that any of them had the faintest clue about. These chains are so easy to install that my wife and daughter were actually racing each other the other day to see who could install faster.

My youngest daughter and wife are driving across county as I type this review carrying with them these Thule chains and I am confident that they and their Thules will handle any snow they encounter.


Review from a similar CG9 in Tire Chains

Very easy to install on my 2011 Prius. This is the first (and only) chain set I've owned. Use for weekend trips in the Sierra during snow season and it's been much easier to put on/take off than expected based on stories I'd head about snow chains.

    That's a really good question, and your assumption about chains being better than cables is right on for your 2019 Subaru Outback with 225/60-18 tires. Cables are really just for emergency use, and realistically only able to be used once or twice, so if you aren't sure you will really be using them, or don't mind buying another set yearly, then it is fine to go with the Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains # PW1046.

    Subaru tends to say that you cannot use tire chains in the vehicle owner's manuals and the 2017 Outback is no different. But if you are somewhere where chains are required by law you don't really have a choice. The law is the law. So what I recommend is going with something that requires the least amount of clearance.

It also states you need to use a Class S traction device to ensure clearance and that you can't use normal steel chains, but you can use self-tensioning chains (these will be tight around your tire which means they will give you the clearance needed not to hit your Outback's wheel well).
