Form meets function in Thule'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.

Thule 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. ('s custom fitguide will indicate whether your Toyota Prius 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


  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

Review from a similar Thule K-Summit in Tire Chains did an excellent job in shipping the two sets of chains that I ordered. Super detailed tracking information was awesome. It always makes me nervous when buying over the internet that a retailer may ship the wrong item especially considering how many different sizes these chains are available. I will point out that the chains were advertised as Thule. However, I received one set of Thule and the other set was Konig who bought out this chain line from Thule in 12/2015. In comparing the two brands side-by-side, the components and build are absolutely indistinguishable from each other with the exception of the brand stickers. I have no reason to believe one brand to be superior to the other. The K56's fit my Honda Accord 225/65/17 tires like a glove. They are a combination of simplicity and sophistication, if that's possible. I can't wait to try them out on the ice and snow. Thank you and I would definitely order from you again. 275371

  • Thule K Summit Tire Chains Compatibility with a 2012 Subaru Impreza Sport
  • Unfortunately we have not had the chance to test the Thule K Summit Tire Chains, TH02230K23, on a 2012 Subaru Impreza Sport. I spoke with my contact at Thule and the K Summit tire chains require a 0 millimeter clearance. As long as the chains are installed properly they should work. I went out to the warehouse and measured the thickness of the plastic traction plate which is 9.9 millimeters. I have attached a photo showing the measurement and that should give you some idea of how far the...

  • Recommend Snow Tire Chains for 2008 Acura TL Facotry Wheel and Tire Size P235/45R17

You will also want to use Glacier Rubber Adjusters for Class S Snow Chains, part # PW100 as tensioners for part # PW1038. You will want to mount the snow chains on the powered drive wheels of your vehicle, on your TL you will mount the snow chains on the 2 front wheels.

  • Your Mazda 3, if equipped with the factory wheels and tires, you can use either the Thule CS10 Size 090 chains, part # TH00204090 or the Thule K-Summit Chains part # TH02230K23. The K-Summit Chains are the easiest and quickest chains to install. The CS10 chains are self-tensioning so unlike basic sets, these chains will tighten themselves. They take more time to install, but they are less expensive when compared to the K-Summit chains. I have added a link to a review and install...

  • Thule K-Summit Snow Chains # TH02230K23 Recommendation for 265/35R18 Size Wheels
  • If the owners manual of your Mercedes E350 says you cannot use snow chains than I cannot safely recommend you use them on your vehicle. If it is an issue with just the rim then these Premium Self-adjusting Snow Tire Chains, part # TH02230K23, would work well for you since they sit on the tire treads and leave the rims untouched. I attached a review video of the K-Summit chains for you to check out also. I checked with Thule and these # TH02230K23 are the correct size for the 265/35R18...

  • Installing Thule K-Summit Snow Chains on a Toyota Prius
  • Installing the Thule K-Summit snow chains could not be easier. The vehicle does not need to be jacked or lifted in any way, and no lug nuts need to be removed. Installation involves simply draping the chains around the tire, attaching the sleeve and bolt over one of the lug nuts and ratcheting the chains into place. The chains will center themselves as you drive. We have an excellent video that outlines all of these steps, you can view it by clicking the link I have provided.

  • Is The Thule K-Summit Self-adjusting Snow Tire Chains, # TH02230K23, A Set Of 2 Chains Or 4 Chains
  • The Thule K-Summit - Size K23 Self-adjusting Snow Tire Chains, # TH02230K23, is two tire chains. When using tire chains you will want to use on all four tires to get the maximum traction with your vehicle. If you only use two chains you will want to install them on the drive wheels of your vehicle. On a 4-wheel drive vehicle they would go on the back and for vehicles with all wheel drive (AWD) they normally would go on the front. I am sending a link to the FAQ page on Thule Tire...

  • Which Tire Chains will Fit a 2005 Volkswagen Beetle
  • The Thule Self-Tensioning Snow Chains for Passenger Vehicles, part # TH00204090, are specific to the size of your tire. They are not necessarily matched to your vehicle. Those chains wrap completely around the wheel, which may cause some problems with your clearance. Thule recommended you look into the K-Summit chains, part # TH02230K23, as they are mainly on the treads of the tire and are less likely to interfere with your wheel well.

A very common recommendation is to go with Class S compatible chains which means they would require less than 15 mm of clearance. The part # TH00023090 only requires 9 mm of clearance so it would be a great option.
