Expert Answers about Konig

  • Should Snow Chains be Installed on the Front or Rear of a 4 Wheel Drive Toyota FJ Cruiser
  • When adding snow chains on your 4 wheel drive Toyota FJ Cruiser, you can add one set of tire chains to either set of drive wheels. Some people like to add chains to the front because the vehicle engine puts more weight over the front axle and allows the chains to dig into the snow and ice better. This might be a good option, but if your vehicle is equipped with a limited slip rear end and the front end is not limited slip, most likely not, you would be better off with the chains on the...

  • Can Tire Chains Be Used On a 2015/2016 Subaru Forester or 2017 Subaru Outback?
  • The Thule Self-Tensioning, Low-Profile Snow Tire Chains, # TH2004205104, will give you enough clearance because they will adjust tension and not just have slack in the chain. If you are concerned about the seeming contradicting information, you could go with a cable chain like Glacier Cable Snow Tire Chains, # PW1042. With these style chains, spring rollers are wrapped around sturdy wire cross cables. With this product, Rubber Adjusters like # PW100 are recommended. In the Owner's...

  • Tire Chain Recommendations for a 2017 Subaru Outback with 225/60-18 Tires
  • 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. For your 225/60-18 tires the best option are the K-Summit chains # TH02230K66. They are expensive but they are built to last and no part of them will be between the inner...

  • Tire Chains Recommended for 2017 Subaru Outback Wagon with 2256R17 Tires
  • I was able to find an online edition of the owner's manual for the 2017 Subaru Outback Wagon. On page 8-12 it indicates that tire chains are not recommended due to limited clearance within the wheel wells. It further states that if traction devices are used they must be the S-Class type which are low-profile in design and more compatible with passenger vehicles that have limited wheel well clearance. Subaru says chains can be used on the front tires only. In reality, some municipalities...

  • Tire Chain Recommendations for a 285/75R17 Tire
  • You will need a different set of chains for your 285/75R17 than the set you used for your 265/70R17 tires. I attached a page that has all of the confirmed chains that will fit your tire size, but I like theTitan Chain Snow Tire Chains with Cam Tighteners # TC3829CAM as long as clearance is not an issue. These chains have built in cam tensioners to make installation easier. If clearance is an issue and your owners manual says to only use Class S chains I would recommend the Titan Chain...

  • Recommended Snowchains for 2015 BMW X5 with Tire Size 315/35-R20
  • We have a quite a few Thule tire chains for you to choose from for the 315/35-R20 tires on your 2015 BMW X5. I recommend the Thule XG12 Pro Tire Chains, # TH2004705265. These chains come with an attractive price tag and come with such features as the self-centering and self-tensioning system, quick release, and rim protection. These chains are made of a manganese nickel alloy steel which is strong, durable and corrosion resistant and come with a 5 year warranty. I have attached a link...

  • Can Tire Chains Be Used on All 4 Wheels
  • The linked article on tire chains does address the question of on which tires to place snow chains. This really has to do with whether the vehicle is front-wheel-drive, rear-wheel-drive or 4-wheel drive. Drive wheels are always the priority but chains on all fours tires means more consistent steering and braking, as well as acceleration. In general, all 4 wheels can be chained to provide extra stability as long as the vehicle's owner manual does not specifically prohibit this due to...

  • Are Thule passenger Vehicle Tire Chains the Same as or Made By Konig

  • Can Snow Chains Be Used On 2017 Ford Explorer with 225/50R20 Size Tires
  • I took a look at the online owner's manual for your 2017 Ford Explorer and was able to see the same information you mentioned in your question. It does state that the chains or cables need to have been rated as 10 mm or less in dimension, however it also states that cables or chains are only suitable for use on the factory P245/60R18 sized tires. Ford does not recommend that they be used on your larger 225/50R20 tires. I do recommend verifying this information in your copy of the owner's...

  • Yes, we do carry tire chains for 265/65R17 Tires for your 2007 Toyota Tacoma. We have many different options, but I'll give you a few recommendations based on style. For the square link syle chains I recommend the Titan Chain Alloy Snow Tire Chains - Diamond Pattern - Square Link - 1 Pair, # TC2526. The design is a diamond-pattern to offer more tire coverace and increased traction as well as stopping power. They are made from manganese nickel alloy for a strong, durable, and rust...

  • Tire Chain Recommendations for a 2014 Subaru Outback with 225/60R17 Tires
  • According to the owner's manual for the 2014 Subaru Outback you can use certain types of traction devices and only on the front wheels. The manual states you can't use chains but you can use what they call spring chains which are cable style tire chains. For your tire size, 225/60-17, you can use cables # PW1038. I also recommend rubber adjusters # PW105 to keep the cables tight and centered.

  • I was unable to find the information on your Q7 regarding the use of tire chains but we do have chains that are designed to fit the size tires you said you have. I recommend the Thule Premium Self-Tensioning Snow Tire Chains, part # TH02230K77. These are Class S compatible chains that require no internal clearance and are the easiest chains to use that Thule makes. Just put the chains on top of the tire, attach to the the wheel nut or blt and drive away. The chains tighten and center...

  • What Tire Chains Are Recommended For A 2011 Subaru Outback Limited 2.5 AWD 225/60R17 Tires
  • First, you should check the owners manual of your 2011 Subaru Outback Limited to be sure that tire chains are recommended for your vehicle and tire size and that there is not a Class size recommendation the you should be aware of. Many newer vehicles require Class S chains which can be no larger than 15mm for side wall clearance. The Thule CB12 Snow Tire Chains, part # TH01221104, will work on the 225/60R17 tire size and they have an internal clearance of 12mm, which will make them...

It is important to note that you will want to check your 2015 BMW X5's owner's manual for any limitations or special instructions regarding tire chains on your vehicle.

  • Availability of Snow Chains for a Tesla Model S with 245/35-21 Wheels/Tires
  • For the tire size you listed the Thule K-Summit Chains part # TH02230K45 are confirmed to fit and would be the best shot at a set of chains that would fit without issue on your vehicle. Most of the time the reason tire chains aren't recommended for certain vehicles is due to inner wheel clearance between the tire and the vehicle body or frame. What is great about these chains is that they do not drape of the inner sidewall of the tire at all so there would be no clearance issue there....

  • Best Snow Tire Chain Recommendation for 2018 Honda CR-V
  • In recent years we are starting to see more manufacturers recommend a specific tire chain for a vehicle instead of just saying one with low clearance requirements like what used to be the standard. So the TC2212MM that you referenced is essentially a standard snow cable chain setup that has a Class S compatibility. This means it works in low clearance applications but I would not describe any cable set as durable or easy to install. So I have a bettery choice for your 2018 Honda CR-V....

  • Where Should Tire Chains be Installed on a 2013 Audi Q5 All Wheel Drive
  • According to the vehicle owner's manual for your 2013 Audi Q5 all wheel drive tire chains can be used on the rear wheels only and are only to be used only on certain tire sizes. But the manual does not specify which tire sizes and only says to consult an Audi dealer for those specific sizes. The manual goes on to say that the chains "must have low-profile links and must not be thicker than 0.53 inch (13 .5 mm), including the lock." This means that you will want to lock at Class S rated...

  • Tire Snow Chain Fit on Toyota Prius with 195/65R15 Radial Tires
  • Tire size is one aspect of compatibility for considering use of a tire chain; the other is the year/make/model and version of the vehicle. A Thule chain that does fit this tire size is their # TH2004205080. These are the S-Class type that require less clearance in the wheel wells. The Thule chains # TH01221090 that you referenced do not fit your tire size. Auto makers get the final word on whether their vehicles are suitable for use with tire chains. Some cars can use only special...

There are two different size wheels that come with your 2016 Mazda CX-5, so there are two different size chains I will recommend. They can be used on regular, standard tires. The Konig Standard Snow Tire Chains - Diamond Pattern - D Link - XB16 - Size 245, # TH01571245, you referenced will work on your vehicle if you are using 225/65-17 tires. These are exellent chains that are made of manganese nickel...

  • Tire Chains for a Mercedes Sprinter RV with LT215/85-16 Tires
  • The first thing you are going to want to do is consult the Sprinter owners manual for specific information on the use of tire chains. If you need Class S chains which require the least amount of clearance around the tire I recommend Glacier square-link chains # PWPLC1146. The square-links offer the best traction and they are constructed of low-carbon steel so they should last you a long time especially if they will not be used very often. You would also want rubber adjusters, # PW99...

  • Thule Tires Chains for 315/35R20 on 2017 BMW X5
  • The Thule Premium Self-Tensioning K-Summit XXL Snow Tire Chains # TH02230K66 are going to be the best tire chains for your 2017 BMW X5. The most likely reason BMW doesn't recommend using chains at all is becuase of the lack of clearance between the tires and any parts of the vehicle. The biggest advantage of the K-Summits is that they ride on the vehicle's tread and don't require any internal clearance. Another feature of the K-Summit chains is how easy they are to install.

  • If the owners manual of a vehicle says that snow chains cannot be used then there is no safe way we can recommend them. Typically the reason for this is clearance issues. The Thule Chains part # TH2004705265 are confirmed to fit the P255/50R20 tire size you have on your 2015 Ford Explorer and as far as clearance is concerned these are great in that regard as they will only require 12 mm of internal wheel well clearance.

I recommend checking your owners manual for compatibility. For chains only requiring 12mm clearance internally, I recommend the Thule Self-Tensioning Snow Tire Chains - Diamond Pattern - D Link - XG12 Pro - Size 230 # TH2004705230 or the similar # TH01221102.

  • Snow Chains Compatible With 245/45R19 Tires On 2017 Kia Sportage With Alloy Wheels
  • The wire style snow chains are known as Class S compatible. They are often called cable or spring chains, but the Class S part is what matters because it is limited clearance in the inside between the tire and other components. There are some chain styles that have this minimal clearance as well and are Class S compatible to work with your 2017 Kia Sportage.

The main difference between the CG9 and CB12 chains is that the CB12 tire chains are manual tensioning chains and the CG9 chains are have automatic tensioning. The CB12 chains are also rated for off-road and on-road use. The CG9 chains are for on-road use only. I would go with the CG9 chains. The automatic...
