I cannot attest to the product quality as I have yet to use them. However, the customer service was excellent and I received the order in less than a week. One thing that happened though was that I ordered Thule chains and received Konig. Some online research informed me that Konig now owns Thule. However, the product description still shows rhem as Thule.

It arrived fast. Someone from etrailer emailed my after I ordered it from their own email. He told me to talk to him with any questions or issues. Other online retailers offer the same stuff as etrailer; it just is more expensive, and without etrailer's manuals and guidance. If you want an expert opinion, ask an expert.

Purchased this model as it has video instruction for all of their model. This konig is merged to Thule recently. But, they still have same model name and product details online. Their shipping was pretty fast and accurate on ETA.

After our first use in a snowstorm, they seemed to perform well once we could get them on. One side appears to have an enlarged thread that is hard to fit in place and remove though. The directions were too cartoonish, but these weren’t that difficult to install once we could understand the vague directions.

Review from a similar XB16 in Tire Chains


Fantastic customer service, constant follow up from etrailer.com. 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!

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


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.

Review from a similar XB16 in Tire Chains


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.

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.

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!

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.

  • Snow Chains for 2016 BMW X5 with Tire Size 315/35R20 and 275/40R20
    The two different tire sizes you have are different enough to require different size tire chains. For the 275/40-20 tire size the XB16 chains you'd need are part # TH01571255 and for the 315/35-20 you'd want the # TH01571265 and you'd be set with a great set of chains that will provide excellent traction, last a long time, and install easily.

You will simply want to consult your owner's manual regarding which tires for your '21 Highlander are able to use snow tire chains, though I can confirm that these are a fit for size 235/65-18 tires.

    You will want to check your owners manual or with the Toyota dealer if you can install snow tire chains on your 2005 Toyota Highlander, or if there are any limitations. On some of the larger tire sizes you might run into clearance problems with snow tire chains. The Thule Snow Tire Chains XB16, part # TH01571255, are compatible with the 255/55R18 tire size.

  • Do the Self-Tensioning Thule Chains Require Initial Adjustments on the Tensioners
    The Thule Self-Tensioning Snow Tire Chains # TH01571255 are self tightening and self centering. These chains are one of the nicest sets on the market and as long as you do not exceed 30-40 mph and you install them correctly you should not have a problem. The reason you do not see any adjustments made to the adjuster in the video is because the chain adjusts itself once installed. So basically get the chain as centered on the tire as you can and then hook it up like the video shows and...

    I do not believe Mercedes-Benz does selectable 4-Wheel Drive like a pick-up truck or off-road vehicle does, but I am not sure. 4-Wheel drive systems allow you to turn off the drive power to the front wheels when not needed. This is done by a switch or knob on the dash, or a shifter on the floor along the transmission tunnel. If it does have a selectable 4-Wheel Drive, then no, you would not have to have chains on the front. Most luxury imports, Mercedes, BMW and Lexus for example, use...

    The Thule Standard XB16 Snow Tire Chains, # TH01571255, will work on your RV, but they are a little too big for your Mercedes. A snug fit for tire chains is important. If they are a little big and fit loose they will not perform properly and can come off the tire. The snow chains that I recommend for your 1999 Mercedes E-Class Wagon are part # TH01221095. We do not have a set of tire chains that will fit both vehicles.
