Expert Answers about Konig

  • 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...

  • 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...

The item you selected, Thule Standard Snow Tire Chains, part # TH01571245, will fit the 225/75-16 tires on your Dodge MB Sprinter.

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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...

  • 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....

  • Class S Rated Tire Chains for a 2014 Ram 1500 Outdoorsman with 265/70-17 Tires
  • For your 2014 Dodge Ram with 265/70-17 tires we have 3 options for Class S rated chains. Since you will not be going far in the chains you might want to look at cables, # PW3027C. with rubber adjusters # PW99. These will not be difficult to put on and the adjusters will keep them tight. I have linked a video showing a typical installation for you. Cables may be simple to install but they do not necessarily offer the best grip. The other options are from Thule. There are the self-tensioning...

  • Tire Chains for a Toyota RAV4 with 225/65-17 Tires
  • It sounds like you are talking about the emergency style chains # PW6081 or # PW6087. They strap around the tire on vehicles that have wheels with existing holes or slots to attach to. Or if you mean cable style chains we certainly have some that will fit a 225/65-17 tire size. I recommend the Glacier cables, # PW1042, with rubber adjusters # PW99. The rubber adjusters make installation a little easier and help maintain the proper tension on the cables. Be sure to consult your vehicle...

  • Recommended Tire Chains For 2017 Audi Q7 With 285/45R20 Tires
  • 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...

  • Thule Tire Chain Comparison for a 2013 Subaru Outback
  • The Thule CG9 Tire Chains, # TH2004205104, and the CB12 Chains, # TH01221104, are both Class S compatible tire chains and will fit the P225/60R17 tires on your 2013 Subaru Outback. 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...

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...

  • Snow Chain Recommendation for a 2007 Mercedes GL450 with 275/55R19 Size Tires/Wheels
  • The first thing I would recommend you do is check the owners manual of your 2007 Mercedes GL450 to see if there are any restrictions on snow chain use. In an all-wheel drive vehicle you will want to at least put one set of chains on the front wheels. Like you said, that way you have traction on the wheels that do the steering and the majority of the braking. Hills are also managed better with chains on the front wheels instead of the back. We had a snow chain rep tell us that when...

If the tires are not the factory size then you will also want to contact an Audi dealer to determine if chains can be used. If they can then the only chains we have for a 295/35-21 tire are the K-Summit chains you have referenced, # TH02230K66. These chains require zero millimeters of clearance on the back side of the tires. I have included some tire...

  • Tire Chains for a 2014 Roadtrek RS Adventurous RV with 215/85-16 Tires
  • For Thule tire chains, the XB-16 chains are what they recommend for Vans and RVs. Some of the tires sizes for these different vehicles overlap so that is why you see both when you enter a tire size or go through the fit guide. I would go with the XB-16 chains, # TH01571245, since they are designed for for RVs. Class S chains require the least amount of clearance around the tire and are typically required on minimal clearance vehicles. The XB-16 chains are not Class S compatible meaning...

For a similar set that has been confirmed to fit your tire size you would want the Titan Chain Alloy Snow Tire Chains # TC2533. These are the same style as the chains you referenced so they will install the same and will work great. Lastly, you will want to check the owners manual of your vehicle to be sure there are...
