Form meets function in Konig's K-Summit tire chains. Unlike typical snow chains, the K-Summit chains require no attachments behind the wheel. Simply place two of the traction plates on top of the tire and fasten the K-Summit to the wheel's lug nut or bolt with the easy-to-use fixing key. Activate the chain's ratcheting mechanism and you'll be ready to roll. As you drive away, the traction plates clamp onto the tire surface, and the chain adjusts to conform to the tire perfectly, providing a precise fit even on worn tires. After use, fold up the tire chains and store them in the compact, reusable carrying case.


The K-Summit delivers an extremely user-friendly design. Each chain sits on top of your tire's treads instead of wrapping around the entire wheel. This design not only eliminates the threat of scratches to your wheels, but it also ensures that there is no interference with any suspension or braking components on the inside of the wheel well.


Konig snow chains are handmade in Italy of hardened manganese-nickel alloy steel for durability. The reduced-clearance, D-shape links provide superior traction for excellent grip on snow and ice. The durable plastic traction plates have metal studs to give you superior grip while also providing a high level of driving comfort.


K-Summit Installation

How to Install the K-Summit Snow Chain:

  1. Lay 2 of the chains traction plates on top of the tire.
  2. Attach chain to 1 wheel nut.
  3. Activate the ratchet, which tightens as you drive away.

K-Summit Lug Nut Adapter

Lug Nut Adapter

Attach the lug nut adapter that matches your wheel bolt size to the fixing key. The most commonly used adapters are included with your K-Summit snow chains. (etrailer.com's custom fitguide will indicate whether your vehicle requires an adapter that is sold separately.) The fixing key then mounts to the wheel bolt on the end where the adapter has been affixed. The other end attaches to the K-Summit base, which includes the ratcheting mechanism that tensions the chains as you drive.



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

185/60-15

  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

Fits tight as a drum! The K44 is nice and snug on my 19’s. Kinda nervous about the stress on the tensioning strap and lug nut clinchers, but these things will be sweet if the Engineers did their job right! Only plan to use these for a few miles at a time, so if all goes well they’ll last me a good long while

Great product and fast shipping from etrailer. I purchased the Konig K-Summit chains for my 2011 BMW 535i. They are easy to install and take off. Make sure you install the chains at home before you need them. The lug nut attachments that came in the box would not fit the lug nuts on my cars wheel, so I had to obtain an attachment that did fit. Do not exceed 30MPH when the chains are installed. The chains will come apart and damage your car if you exceed the speed restriction. Unfortunately, this happened to me when using my first pair of Thule K-Summit chains - new tire and body damage $2,000. But if you stay below 30MPH , the chains are great.

After having a hard time figuring out how to assembly it due to lack of written instructions along with the illustration, I was able to mount them with technical help from the manufacurer engineering dept. I am very unsure if I made a good choice in purchasing this product. I was led by the marketing of easiness of installation. Now I realize that if one link on the chain breaks, the whole chain safety is compromise whereas in a standard cheaper model (+- $40) you can just remove one link across the tire and replace it easily. According to Tech. dept. from Thule if on single linkin this chain breaks you can use an emmergency link tighted with plier, but the chain needs to be mailed back to Thurle for repair or replacement. This is a hassle for such a high priced, premium, "ahead of time design". Sure the idea is good, but needs improvement. The same design that makes it easy of use, renders it useless in case of a broken link. I have not driven with them on snow, but I already see its flaw and I am unsure if I made a wise investment. It came with one year warranty, but you get the hassle of having to return them for replacement while you go to Pep Boys and buy a cheaper reliable cable chain while the white elephant is in the shop. What if it breaks after the one year warranty? Waht happened to your U$ 405 plus shipping investment that should bring you peace of mind? These are a few thought I want to share with you. Have a great day.

I only used it one time during the year,but it sure came in handy. It is particularly useful for me because of the very limited space in the wheel well of the Genesis coup. Fitting to the lug bolt was a little tricky but did work. I try to travel into the Rockies at least once a winter so that’s why I bought the chains

So far so good. I’m waiting for snow before I give 5 stars. It’s recommended you fit the chains before you actually need them to get familiar with the innovative design. I had to remove all 5 yellow bolts since my wheels are larger. Keep the extra hardware but you won’t need them unless you change cars. Once fitted you’re good to go. Wear gloves to mount them in about 5 minutes. I

Review from a similar K-Summit in Tire Chains


Purchased these awesome chains because my 2019 traverse has custom wheels (wider) so traditional chains/cables that wrap around the wheels would cause damage to my brake components. The instructions in the manual can be a little confusing but read and watch the tutorial video and you'll be good to go. I had to remove the exact amount of bolts from the chains it recommended in the manual for my wheels, 5 if I remember correctly. After a couple dry runs installing/removing at home I was ready for big bear. The family and I spent Thanksgiving up on big bear and yes, it snowed A LOT!! The chains worked great and along with a lot of looks from other drivers, I even got compliments from the locals there that obviously are used to driving with chains. When it came time to take them off halfway down the mountain, it was super fast and easy I was done in no time. NOTE: the bolt that goes over the lug nut leaves an indentation on your lug nuts, especially if your vehicle has the chrome finished ones like mine does. Have to buy a new set of front wheel lug nuts and use the old ones for when we drive up to the snow again and use these cool chains!

It fits! I have a Tesla Model S with 21" staggered wheels, I don't need chains but I must carry to comply and it gives me peace of mind. etrailer can't recommend it, but Konig's website did Say the XL K55 model fits 265/35-21. It came with 3 size of nut grabbers and nut spacers. There was no manual in the box but I found it online. The manual is needed because the chain can be made wider removing some springs and the manual says how many according to the tire size.

Fantastic product! The chains were easy to set up and install on my Audi Q7. They worked perfectly. You will never find better customer service than what I received from etrailer.com and Konig (Pewag). I wish all companies were that good!

Review from a similar K-Summit in Tire Chains


Customer service was very good. Chains went on as noted in the youtube video etrailer had online. I did have some difficulties getting the bolt to seat properly in the part that attaches to the lug nut. After that was figured out all went well. Only other thing of note was shipping times. Was supposed to get them within 4 days which would have been perfect as it was a few days before my trip to Mt Hood. Chains arrived 5 days after our trip. Luckily didn't need chains. Probably not the fault of etrailer as delivery with everyone is slow due to covid. I only mention this so others can use expedited shipping if they need their products right away.

Review from a similar K-Summit in Tire Chains


This isnt directed towards etrailer, they have been nothing but amazing. overall these chains are really expensive for snow chains that will only be used a couple of times a year. The instruction manual is horrible, directions are very broad and not specific at all which was beyond frustrating. Thankfully I fitted and tested the chains at home before I went up to the snow, one chain fell off during the first test but then I put it back on and it stayed on. I haven't been to the snow with them yet, so wish me luck!

Review from a similar K-Summit in Tire Chains


The Konig self-tensioning snow chains I purchased were easy to install and worked great. However, I only used them once as a test to check them out. It had snowed just before I received them so the timing was great. I live in an area (East Tennessee) that has steep grades so I tested the chains on the grades-forward and backward while moving, stopped on the steepest grade and able to drive away without slipping, and effective when stopping. The chains were also easy to remove. I've done a lot of driving in the snow all over the US and also in Canada using a variety of chains including ice chains with v bars. The Konig chains were by far the easiest chains I've ever had to install. Incidentally, I have a Trail Rated 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited vehicle which I believe worked nicely to enhance the capabilities of both the Jeep and the chains.


Comments
Hi Patrick, Maybe its global warming but I havent had any snow required for my Konig chains. However, after my previous excellent experience that I wrote about, Im pretty sure they will work fine if needed. Many thanks for keeping in touch. Best wishes, Gary

Review from a similar K-Summit in Tire Chains


I am very impressed with the quality, unique design and ease of installation. I have test fit these chains to our vehicle and the fit is great for our application where the chains cannot extend to the inside of the tire as there is no clearance. Having said this, to date we have not used the chains in the snow. We live in the Sierra Mountains of California in a location where we are required to carry chains. However, in our area it is rare that the road crews have not cleared the snow to the point where four-wheel-drive will suffice. I'm assuming I would rate these chains with five stars after actual road use.

Review from a similar K-Summit in Tire Chains


Had these K-Summit "chains" for a Toyota Corolla for 5+ years, and they worked so well that I immediately bought a new pair to fit my 2013 Honda Accord (different tire size), and they also work great. Used them the other day in 6" of unplowed snow, on the hill I live on. As long as you go slow (I usually drive < 25 MPH) they just keep moving you forward. Two quick notes: 1) I noticed going uphill that my wheels started skidding, then stopping, and repeated that annoying cycle, which made it harder than usual to continue moving forward. I quickly figured out that this was the way the anti-spin system worked on the car (which doesn't want you to spin your wheels). I disabled that and that odd behavior stopped. 2) The fitting guide, which tells you how many "links" or "regulation elements" (as the instructions calls them) to remove to fit the chain to the tire, is assuming you're placing them on all-season tires. When you use snow tires, as I do, you have to remove more links to get the chain to fit correctly. This is not a problem, but it's useful to know. The representative from Thule, the company from whom I bought my original set, admitted that they should mention this in the instruction guide.


Comments
Still great! Didn’t need them that often last season, but always nice to know they’re in the trunk if I do. Never been unable to complete trip with these “chains” attached.

It works! Not so easy to learn how to use/installation (lack of online and general installation guide) but once figure out, it works. It's costly (10 times more expensive than normal snow chains) but I guess that's the price to pay for Porsche chain; yaiks! I wish they address those 2 issues in the future; price and installation instruction.

Review from a similar K-Summit in Tire Chains


This review relates to the product, not etrailer, as they have been a good retailer. The Konig self tensioning tire chains are a horrible product. They are poorly engineered. The instructions are average, but not detailed to the level of complication associated with the product. Installation is a two person job, and make sure you have that extra person around for a few days because they are very likely to fly off during driving. After coming off the fifth time, having been professionally installed, I pulled over and took the other off and left them for the next person to try. This is the worst winter traction device ever designed and built. I bought these due to wheel size given low profile tires and wide rims - I think I will just get some winter rims and tires and run those for four months with some simple and far less expensive (and more reliable) cable chains. I would avoid this product - etrailer has many better options for you.

Worked fine going up a mountain a couple of miles to our cabin. Over an icy trail. Unfortunately the next day going down, after we got to the bottom, discovered they both had come off! And were lost somewhere back up the mountain. Of course we could not go back to find them because we had no chains!

Review from a similar K-Summit in Tire Chains


These things are awesome. Tahoe snow is wet and it freezes. Chains in general are a pita but these are super easy to put on and take off. No tension or torque wrench needed. They self adjust and are quick to put on. Practice first so you can pull out any of the interior links and get the fit right but after that you’re rocking and rolling. I’ve got them on my 2018 Audi Q7 with 20” All Weather run flats. I had to remove one or two of the width adjusting screws.

Very unique design. Do set them up and put them on before you really need them. The screws that adjust the size do take some time to remove. Unlike others, I had few to no issues getting them off. They fit snuggly on my tires. They were a little hard to get off after releasing the tension, but I guess that is good too. I will have to wait until I need them to put them to the ultimate test.

Bought these chains for a Tesla Model S with standard 19" wheels. Came with the 21mm lug nut adapter, and fits when following the instructions. (Instructions are not great, and it was hard to believe the chains would pull themselves onto the tires with how tight they were - but they did)

Review from a similar K-Summit in Tire Chains


These are adapters to allow the associated chain set fit some uncommon tire lugs. The adapters work flawlessly. Ordered them for the chain set as the rims on my vehicle require them. Fit perfectly as did the chains after adjustment. However, I don't know how well they actually work on snow and ice. Based on experience with a number of other chain sets I see no reason to doubt their reliability and efficiency. Backstory: Ordered a set for a trip to Colorado over Christmas & New Year's as we were expecting snow and ice as we were planning to travel to Estes Park, Denver, Colorado Springs, Salida, Buena Vista, Leadville, etc. Received our order quickly and correctly. Tried chains on tires and made fitting adjustments per instructions for exact tire size. Played with the chains a few times to make sure I knew how to get them deployed quickly. They are extremely easy to put on once they are adjusted. Watch the video - it really is that easy. Fast forward a few weeks, we went on our trip. Got not much more than a dusting the whole trip and never had to put the chains on. Meanwhile, back home, there were something like 129,000 poor bxxxxxxs waiting for the roads to be cleared and power to be restored from the huge ice and snow storms. At the end of our trip we drove home over clear roads surrounded by big piles of plowed snow. Arrived home to find our neighbors huge tree uprooted and blown over. We didn't receive any damage. Next day got the hound out of doggie jail pretty much as if nothing had happened. I like these chains!

Review from a similar K-Summit in Tire Chains


We have a BMW X3 in the foothills of the Sierras and need to have chains on hand. Normal chains are not an option for the BMW X3. On the surface theses seem like a very slick product. In reality maybe for some. There are limited Choices for the X3, The K-Summit Size: K45 seem OK but I have issues and concerns. Once received you have to fit the chains to your tires. DO HIS IN THE GARAGE BEFORE YOU GO ANYWHERE. Doing this on the road in the snow would be a pain. If you like IKEA you’ll love the instructions. (Well maybe not that bad). Go on-line and look at some videos. I needed to remove 4 “regulation elements” on each chain to fit our tires. Tools are provided but I used a metric socket and a cordless drill to help with this and it took maybe 5 minutes. With hand tools the 8 total “elements’ would have taken 20 or more. Now basically shove the chain more or less in place with plastic “pads at 10:00, 2:00, 4:00 and 8:00 O’Clock positions on the tire. Next make sure you have the correct size lug nut adapter and the proper spacing from the rim. Supposedly just put the adaptor on a lug, with the indicating tip toward the rim center and tighten the bolt with the supplied wrench. I found issues with the 17mm lug adapter and the 17mm BMW lug. The BMW lug is not very tall and the adapter never felt very securely seated to me. (Yes I made sure the adapter is seated correctly in the “cup”; instructions mention this). This may be better on other vehicles. Lastly, pull the crank until you see the red line on the nylon strap. Dive forward 50 feet or so so the chains will move onto the tire. We got out of the car to check and it still required a couple of short toe kicks to fully get them securely on. In summary they seem to “work OK”. I didn’t find any better options available for the X3. Once set up they are fairly easy to install with the exception of the lug nut connection which I found insecure and fussy on the X3. The plastic components give me concern for durability. Will they become brittle and break in cold temperatures or over extended use? Time will tell. Very costly if there is a failure on the road warrantee not withstanding.

Review from a similar K-Summit in Tire Chains


This is an update to the review for the 2017 MINI Cooper with 205/45-17 tires. By taking off both spacers (red and silver), I was able to get the chains to center on the tire - I might even be able to put one of the chain tightening screws back on, maybe more as the tread wears down. So I think they're going to work well this winter. I'll bump the review up to five stars when I can figure out how to get them to easily fit into the carrying case.


Comments
These worked great. The first time I used them, I didnt tighten the screw enough and one of the chains came off while driving. But after learning to tighten them enough, I had no problems. It was a mild winter, but at least I know that driving 20 miles in 5 of unplowed snow up the mountain highway isnt a problem. And I finally figured out how to get them back into the case.

  • Snow Chain Use on 2014 Subaru XV Crosstrek with P225/55R17 Tires
    When it comes to using tire chains, the auto maker gets to have the final word. On page 8-11 of the online owner's manual Subaru indicates that standard tire chains cannot be used due to limited clearance between the tires and the vehicle body, but that special low-profile S-Class traction devices CAN be used but only on the FRONT tires. Thule's K-Summit Premium Self-Tensioning Snow Tire Chains # TH02230K44 are S-Class rated and will fit your P225/55R17 size tires. These advanced self-tensioning...

  • Will Thule K-Summit Tire Chains Fit a 2016 BMW X1 with 225/50-18 Tires
    The K-Summit tire chains # TH02230K44 will fit tire size 225/50R18. I have linked the instructions for you. Because these chains do not have any part that fits on the inboard sidewall of the tire there will not be any interference with components near the tires. Be sure to consult the vehicle owner's manual for additional information on the use of tire chains.

    The Konig Premium Self-Tensioning Snow Tire Chains - Diamond Pattern - D Link - K-Summit - Size K44 # TH02230K44 cannot have chains added to fit the new tire size. You would need the Size K66 # TH02230K66 for the correct fit on your 225/65R17 tires. If you want other options confirmed to fit, I've attached a link to the confirmed fits. Although the K-Summit is the best option because it has no addition to the internal clearance so there will be plenty of room between the inner sidewall...

    The Premium Self-adjusting Snow Tire Chains by Thule - K-Summit, # TH02230K44, has an adapter that fits over a lug nut on the wheel and gets tightened down to secure the center portion of the chains to the wheel. I have included a link to a video showing how the chains work.

    The Thule # TH02230K44 Premium Self-Tensioning Snow Tire Chains are a confirmed fit for 225/50-R18 tires and are designed for vehicles with limited wheel well clearance. As long as you have a couple inches clearance at the wheel tread you should be fine. Since the X1 is a primarily front wheel drive vehicle you will use a pair of chains on the front only. Keep in mind to keep your speed under 30 mph and to only use on compacted snow or ice. Since you are getting your safety gear ready...

  • Do the Thule K-Summit Tires Meet the Colorado Snow Chain Regulations
    I spoke with my contact at Thule and he informed me that the regulations for snow chain design stem from the states wanting to prevent damage to the roads.

  • Tire Chain Recommendation for 2013 Lincoln MKZ with 245/45-18
    For a set of tire chains that are a fit for you tire size 245/45-18 that would give you the best possible tire clearance as it does not go over the inside of the shoulder of the tire you would want the # TH02230K44. The CG Tire Chain # TH2004205104 will require 9 mm of clearance. If you have that much clearance already then these would well too.

    For your 2015 Chevy SS with tire size 275/35-19 there's only one tire chain set we offer I would recommend due to the limited clearances your vehicle is going to have and the fact you'll most likely want to keep our wheels as nice as possible. For that you'd want the Konig K-Summit Chains part # TH02230K44 which due to how they install basically do not require any clearance since they do not drape over the inner sidewall. These also won't contact your wheels either so there wouldn't be...

    The best option we have for the tire size 245/35R20 tires you have on your 2015 Chevy Malibu are going to be the Konig K-Summit Chains part # TH02230K44 as these chains are designed to fit your tire size and since they do not drape of the inner shoulder of the tire they basically don't require any clearance at all unlike other chains.

  • Tire Chains for a 2008 Volvo S-80 AWD
    When a vehicle owner's manual or manufacturer says something like Use only Volvo approved chains that means they want you to buy them from Volvo or a Volvo dealer when in reality they should just tell you what makes chains approved or not. Basically you will need Class S compatible chains or cables because there is limited clearance between the tires and vehicle components. Also, on your vehicle the chains should only be used on the front wheels. If you are able to turn off any type...

These are Class S rated chains which means they meet minimum clearance standard and you will need chains with that Class S rating for your vehicle.

  • Tire Chain Recommendation for a 2012 BMW 535i with 275/3519 Tires
    First, if you cannot find any additional chain information in the owners manual, I recommend contacting a BMW dealer and speaking with a technician. Most vehicles like yours with the larger rims do require Class S chains if chains can be used at all. Tire chains should be placed on the main drive wheels. Vehicles with 2-wheel drive, 4-wheel drive, or all wheel drive can all use 1 set of chains. Going with the chains that offer the most clearance will be the way to go. The Thule K-Summit...

    I have a solution for you but the # PW1038 is not going to provide you with the needed clearance. It requires 15 mm clearance and your 2016 Chevy Malibu only has 12 mm of clearance to work with. The best solution I can recommend is the K-Summit Chains part # TH02230K44 as they do not go over the inner shoulder of the tire so no clearance is required.
