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.

  1. (185) - indicates the width
  2. (60) - gives you the aspect ratio (sidewall height as percentage of width)

Quick shipping and great comms from etrailer. Practicing installing at home payed off in the wild. I was literally in and out of “pit lane” in 5 minutes! The chains were pretty quiet and performed well in 25 degree, snowy, icy conditions. Great engineering and solidly made.




by:

Finally got to use these chains after owning them for 12 months. They were fairly easy to use and made a huge difference when driving down a snow-covered dirt road. Without out them we would have been stranded. Being self-tensioning made fitting really easy. Worth the money.

Fantastic, would buy again. Pulled out a couple jeeps with big tires. Sometimes the only thing that'll get you moving are snow chains

Yes we like our chains. Although our Van was rear ended and so we have been renting a van for a few months! Had to use the chains on our rental.

Review from a similar XG12 Pro in Tire Chains


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.

Review from a similar XG12 Pro in Tire Chains


I was looking to have snow tire chains for my upcoming trip to northern Wisconsin. I found these to be very easy to install as the instructions were very clear. I like that they come with a case to make them easy to store in my Ford Escape.

Review from a similar XG12 Pro in Tire Chains


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.)

Review from a similar XG12 Pro in Tire Chains


Outstanding service! With an upcoming trip and recent snow storm etrailer helped me get my snow chains just in time for our vacation. Without the chains I would have been screwed. Communication with this company is impressive. The original chains I ordered would not have arrived in time and the sales team called me right away to find alternative solutions. Chains for 315/35/20 size tires are not easy to find. Really happy with my purchase. Thank you.

I have not used them yet. I have great Hakka snow tires and Go-Treads traction boards. No need for chains yet. Maybe next year, but hopefully beyond that.

Review from a similar XG12 Pro in Tire Chains


Thank you, the chains were delivered and we both used the website to learn how to install them on the car. Yes, we have done 2 dry runs on the tires in the garage. They may have cost a little more but having the self-tension chains is wonderful and soooooo much easier to install than the conventional ones. We are an older couple and getting up and down especially in the snow, can be challenging so the less fussing that has to be done, the better. We also added heavy gloves to the container and always carry a big sheet of plastic with us. We feel prepared to head through the Sierra's into Salt Lake in the coming months.

Review from a similar XG12 Pro in Tire Chains


Just received the chains a couple of days ago. Practiced on one tire-very easy to install, or so it seems. Can't say anything yet about how they hold up, or performance. Seem to be well made. This 5 star rating is mostly for the customer service I received from etrailer. It was fantastic. Would highly recommend them.

No change since last review. Actually have not needed to use them yet. Practiced again, seems simple to install.

Review from a similar XG12 Pro in Tire Chains


I love these chains, and etrailer is the best! As a 69 yr old retired grandma, I work part-time at a ski resort. A few weeks ago, we were expecting 8-10 inches of snow/ice and I was scheduled to work. So, I put these idiot-proof, color-coded, self-adjusting chains on my Highlander front low profile tires and waited for weather. See photo. I worked my full shift, came out to ice/snow in dark, and drove safely home. Oh, and the carrying case comes with a folded plastic sheet, but with my old knees I added a foam pad!

Review from a similar XG12 Pro in Tire Chains


Purchased for use of a 2019 JL Wrangler. Seem very high quality, will be trying them out in Montana January 2020. Definitely easy on, easy off install. I would suggest trying them on the vehicle prior to initial use in the intended climate. Right out of the box they were stored appropriately and not tangled. Easy to place back in storage container. Will be purchasing a set for the wife's and in-law's vehicles providing they excel in winter climate, but have no doubts they will.

Review from a similar XG12 Pro in Tire Chains


I might give a 5 rating once I see how they work in real snow/ice. We bought these - just in case we needed them. We haven’t yet used them in actual snow conditions as the little snow we get around sea level near Seattle is easily handled by the all-wheel drive car. The tire chains arrived on time. We tried them on in the garage and they were easy to install and appear to be well made - sturdy. They are very easy to install. It took just minutes and if you put down some cardboard, you likely won’t get wet & dirty. I’ve put on a lot of standard chains on many vehicles large and small and know it’s usually a cold, wet, dirty job. We refreshed our installation practice again late this Fall-2021 before a trip over the mountains to get our kid from college before Thanksgiving. Once again super easy to install. We go over the mountains with great confidence we can chain up quickly if needed.

Review from a similar XG12 Pro in Tire Chains


Product is quality made with good instructions and nice and right sized rigid storage case. Suggest one “dry run install” in garage or driveway a couple of times so the first time your putting them on IS NOT on the side of the road in a snow storm. Overall pleased with the Snow Tire Chains and delighted, as usual, with etrailer’s Customer Service. I would buy these Tire Chains again.

Review from a similar XG12 Pro in Tire Chains


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.

I'm an etrailer fan. Buttt...I took me over an our to get this item installed. Turned out the chains were twisted in a way that took myself and my wife half an hour to fix. The pictoral instructions were not good enough. A thorough description in English would really have been helpful.

etrailer is a great option for your trailer/vehicle needs. I needed tire chains in a short timeframe. etrailer customer service provided great service - both on product advice and facilitating timely shipment that enabled our trip. The videos they have on their website are extremely informative in helping you choose the right product for your need.

Review from a similar XG12 Pro in Tire Chains


The snow chains were delivered very quickly, arrived in perfect sealed condition.
The chains literally installed on each tire of my 2019 pickup truck within 2 minutes. So easy, very solid construction, fit like a glove, and the kit came with replacement links, etc.
Also, the chains were very to store back into the storage container.

Review from a similar XG12 Pro in Tire Chains


Very high tech- make sure you practice putting them on and off at least once or twice before getting into the snow and inclement weather!!
One tip for taking them off- make sure the main cable connection is at the top-same as when you put them on.
I did not do this the first time, and chains got caught on the brake caliper-very hard to remove then. Keeping the configuration the same as installation keeps everything in place.

I love these chains. I used it a few times and it was so easy and quick to install. These are some good quality chains. I could never go back using old school chains.

  • How Many Chains are Needed for an All-Wheel Drive Vehicle
    For an all-wheel drive vehicle like your 2017 BMW X-1, you will need four chains to traverse the snow/ice safely. The Konig Self-Tensioning Snow Tire Chains, part # TH2004705235, that you referenced comes in a set of two (a pair), so you will need to order two to cover all four tires. I've linked to a video review of these chains for you to look at. These chains fit tires with a size of 225/45-19, which is a common size for your vehicle. If this is not your tire size, let me know and...

  • Tire Chains For A 2017 Jeep Renegade

These chains are super easy to install, just simply loop the chains around the tire and drive off, the chains will tighten as you go down the road.

    I double-checked the owner's manual for your 2011 Toyota RAV4, and you are correct in saying that the manual does not mention Class S requirements for tire chains/cables. However, Class S chains are generally a great idea because they are made for vehicles with limited wheel well clearance. Chains also gives you more overall traction than cables. For example, for a great option for class S chains, I recommend the Konig Self-Tensioning Snow Tire Chains - Diamond Pattern - D Link - XG12 Pro...

    According to your owner's manual, it's acceptable to use snow chains on your tire size on your Jeep Grand Cherokee, but the manual states to use them on the rear tires only. For an easy to use and install chain that's very effective in deep snow, I'd recommend the Pewag Snox, part # PWSXV590. These chains install by draping them over the tire and they'll automatically center and tighten as you drive off. The chains use a diamond pattern which keeps the chain in constant contact with the...

They install a little easier, provide better traction, and are made from harder metals so they will last a lot longer. This is definitely the way to go.

The chain set includes cam tighteners for a good fit, but separately available tensioners like part # TCOA2 would be a good addition to ensure a tight fit. I've linked to a demonstration video...

  • Tire Chains Suitable for Use on 2013 Ford Flex and 2014 Mazda 6

Before purchasing any tire chain check your two vehicles' manuals carefully and if in doubt speak to your local dealerships. Tire chains come in a variety of types and with varying features.
