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 XXL 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 XXL 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

Video Transcript for Konig Premium Self-Tensioning Snow Tire Chains Review

Speaker 1: Today we're going to be taking a look at the Konig Premium K-Summit Self-Tensioning snow tire chains. These have the diamond pattern and D-Links. They do a great job of giving you the traction that you need, they offer the diamond links up here, they've got ice breakers all the way throughout and really nice studded traction pads. So, overall these are gonna give you excellent traction, they're gonna fold up nice and conveniently, they're gonna be very easy to put on, so you're gonna spend a lot less time laying down in the snow or rolling around trying to get these on in the emergency situation when it comes up.Now when you first see these tire chains, they can look a little bit intimidating but don't let that fool you. You're really .. once you get your initial set up done and get 'em sized properly, all it's gonna take is for you to tighten up one nut right here, which holds our anchor point and then ratchet 'em down to the tire.

At that point, you drive forward, they're gonna self center on the tire and they'll hold themselves in position until you're ready to take 'em off. You can see we have spring loaded self tensioners here as well, that's gonna maintain tension even if your tires are wore down a little bit, if you happen to have a little bit under pressure situation or something like that, these are gonna spread out slightly, keep that proper tension on to keep these chains working as they should.Now the D-Links that they speak about are here. You can see they offer a good edge on each side which are gonna help to bite and grip in that snow. These give us excellent forward and backwards traction but also side to side, the way these diamond patterns are formed, it's gonna give us unilateral traction. And for the icy conditions, these are the ice breakers we spoke about just a few minutes ago, these are gonna really cut in deep to that ice, break it up and help to ensure that we don't have any issues with slipping.You'll also notice the rivets or I think they're more like a stud that's in our traction pads here, at each point you're gonna have several of these on here also helping to grab ahold and get great traction.

I think you're gonna see this tire chain used in applications where you use them often and you don't wanna be rolling around in the snow to get 'em attached, but also on our Grand Cherokee here, these are very nice rims, we don't wanna run the risk of anything making contact with those that might do damage. You can see the way they arch out here, we have zero room contact whatsoever, our anchor point is gonna be right there on that lug nut so it's gonna be ideal on aftermarket rims or any type of rim that you're concerned about.Now these chains are made to be extremely durable, you should get a lot of good service out of these. The links themselves in our ice breakers, these are gonna be a manganese nickel alloy, very, very durable but extremely corrosion resistant and on our traction pads here, not only do those rivets help give us good traction but they prevent wearing of that pad.There's something I like about these chains that you don't see with a lot of other tire chains, that we don't have anything on the back side of our tires here. So our brake lines, ABS sensor lines or wires and things like that, really aren't gonna be an issue at all. Now when choosing the axle to put your tire chains on, of course they're gonna come in a quantity of two so you'll get one for each side of the vehicle but you always wanna put 'em on your drive wheels first.

If you're gonna get two sets, put 'em on all four of course but if not, put 'em on your drive wheels. So on a rear wheel drive vehicle, they're gonna go on the rear. A front wheel drive vehicle, they're gonna go in the front and an all wheel drive situation, typically your front axle is your drive axle but check your owner's manual to make sureNow just to keep your chains performing well for a long time to come, there's a couple things you wanna do. The first is not exceed 50 kilometers per hour which is gonna be about 31 miles per hour, of course in those conditions we probably shouldn't be doing that anyway. And the second is when you take these off, hose 'em off.

Get any of that road salt and that grime off of 'em so it's not constantly sitting on our chains, let 'em dry in the sun and then repackage 'em.As you can see, the K-Summit Chains, they're gonna come in a nice carrying bag so you can keep 'em stored in your vehicle for when you need 'em and a lot of other chains that you're gonna find, you don't see quality like this. Generally you're gonna have a very low quality . just a little zipper bag and it doesn't really hold up all that long. There's gonna be a pocket inside, this is gonna allow you to store your instructions, your different lug nut adapters, your tools, but also it's gonna come with a set of gloves . help protect your hands and kneeling mat. Now, to be honest with you these aren't the highest quality gloves or kneeling mat there, might be a good idea to keep just a towel with you and a pair of work gloves just to get these installed if you don't wanna touch 'em.Something else I like, is this little emergency hardware kit, basically anything in here you can do with a pair of pliers and if in the event for some reason one of your links we're to break or something, we'll be able to make a repair with that, won't leave us stranded. Now there are several different sizes of the K-Summit Chains so it's important for you to check your tire size and put that in the fit guide so we can get the right one to you. If you don't know your tire size, your best bet's just to look right around your rim, usually it's gonna start with either a P or it's gonna start with an LT. It's gonna give you three digits, two digits and then two more digits. In our case we're looking at a P-265-55-R20.Now when you get set up to do your installation, the first time which is always recommended to do it on a nice day when it's sunny out. You need to get the tire chain set up for your particular tire. These are made to fit several different tire sizes so if you'll use your instructions, you wanna find your part number in this case we're using the XXLs, these come in just the standard K-Summit, XL and XXL depending on tire size. We're using the K-77s so we'll find that right here, 265-50-R20 and it says that we need to remove two of our size adjusters. Those are gonna be the spring loaded bolts that have the yellow, you can see the bright yellow insert there between 'em. So it says we need to remove two of those, depending on your tire size you may not have to remove any, or as many as five.The tools are provided to do that. So we've got our wrench here, that's gonna go over the nut, then we've got our Allen key, that's gonna go on the bolt head side, then we'll just get this loosened up. And now once you get this off, put it in your kit that way if you ever change your tire size, if you need to add these back on you can. You can see that little nylon lock nut is what we removed there. Alright, so we've got 'em sized properly now. The next thing we need to do is find the proper cup and anchor that fits over our lug nut. Now on the end of 'em, this one says 21, 22, got one for 19, you're gonna have one for 17. That's in reference to millimeter, you just wanna find the one that will easily slide over your lug nut but that you can't turn. You don't want it to be too big and you don't want it to be too small. See that one sits on there really well for us, so that's the one we're gonna use.You can see here, we're using the red anodized spacer, our lug nuts stick off a pretty good distance for our wheel so I think this is gonna be all we'll need to do but we'll show you when we put this on, how you might have to add a single or double insert depending on how your wheel's set up. Now you'll wanna grab two of the arms, we're gonna place that right up and over our wheel and kind of guide the other ones around the wheel as best you can, of course it's not gonna go all the way around. That'll take care of itself in just a few minutes. You'll notice once we have that in place, it's just gonna kinda hang on there so we won't have to worry about holding it.The next step's getting our anchor point set. And you'll notice as I slide that on, I've got a good distance between the back of this anchor and my rim, that's what we're looking for. So, if your lug nuts are inset, or let's say your rim, maybe the face of your rim's here and your lug nuts are down in there further, then you might have to switch the red spacer to the silver spacer. You can see that's gonna give you additional room, now keep in mind when you do that you're gonna need to go up to the medium sized bolt which we have here. We've got the short bolt in here, got a medium sized bolt if we're using the silver spacer and if that still doesn't give you enough room you can use both the red and the silver spacer, but then you have to use the longest bolt. Just something to keep in mind there.Now with our setup the way we want it, we're gonna place that over our lug nut. We want the red arrow, you can see it right here on the end of this black piece, we want that to face towards the middle of the wheel and we'll hold that in place while we tighten down our nut. Now the tools gonna be provided, it comes in the kit and it's something you'll keep in there all the time. You can see we're just gonna tighten that down, as we do it grabs ahold of that lug nut. Alright. So that's on there nice and secure. At this point, just need to start ratcheting our strap here. You'll notice those arms are gonna flex. Just put that down in the stored position.At that point, your tire chains are installed. You just need to drive and as you do these are gonna work their way on and under the wheel. Now, not only is getting the chain on really easy, getting it off is just as easy. We're gonna pull the red lever right here and we want to fully open this buckle while holding it. You see how it kinda tipped out, now we'll just pull out slightly, that's gonna relax our strap here in the back and we'll use the provided tool to loosen up our bolt. Once that's loosened up you'll see that move just slightly, we can pull that off of our lug nut and just kind of work our chain off. Now we'll wanna allow that to rest to the side, get our other side done, we pull forward, we'll be ready to package it back up.And that's gonna complete our look at the Konig K-Summit Premium Self-Tensioning Snow 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. 597360

Tested it out on a new vehicle at home and it was a pretty straight forward fit. Just make sure you have the right lug nut attachment and spacers set up and the rest is easy. More importantly, Adam at eTrailer was awesome. Helped me make sure what I needed (very last minute) for our vehicle and tires and was super friendly doing so. Would definitely buy from Adam again! 453758

Just put the chains on for a practice round. Very straightforward, and I think it will be routine even in difficult conditions. I have large tires, and this was the only product which fit. These are heavy duty chains, and I am very satisfied. etrailer has a user friendly website, and when it looked like the chains wouldn't reach me in time for my next trip, etrailer pulled out all the stops to get them to me before I departed. I will be visiting the website for more products shortly. 455781

The instructions for chain fittings and installation were detailed and understandable. The only problem was removing regulation elements for adjusting chain dimension. The nut with "lock tight" required a vise grip because the hex tool would strip the element. The chains are ready for snow and ice to come. 454801

Review from a similar Konig K-Summit in Tire Chains


I have a 2019 Subaru Forester. I purchased these based on the recommendations and information provided by this site. The Call Center rep was extremely helpful in finalizing more order by making sure it should be compatible with my vehicle and discussing shipping options. As for the tire chains, they fit well once I figured out how to install them. They are very easy to install once you get them adjusted for your tire and find the right fit combination between the lug nut size and the spacers. The only main issue I have is with the tire size and the recommended sizing of the tires. The instruction manual recommended removing one of the pins to allow for more chain radius. However, I had to remove six to get the chains on properly. However, once that was complete, the chains are incredibly easy to put on. The winch works well pulling the chains snug to the tires and is easy to adjust. Releasing is a little harder, but still easy. 609457

Review from a similar Konig 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. 585054

Review from a similar Konig K-Summit in Tire Chains


Etrailer.com 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 etrailer.com and I would definitely order from you again. 275371

Bought chains for a 2015 3 Series BMW with M Sport Package. You just can't buy chains for these at your local auto parts store. Got exactly what I want, the Thule chains that have nothing on the back side of the tire, the Thule K-Summit series and the price was substantially less than buying directly from Thule. Service was quick, got updated status from eTrailer periodically, and overall an excellent experience. Having a video from eTrailer showing how to install was a great idea. 223741

I did need to adjust the "chains" for my tire size. It was easy to do with the supplied tools. They are indeed easy to put on and take off. The tension mechanism works great for keeping them on. The first time you put them on, you might wonder if you've done it correctly? Of course, you should practice once before you leave home. They are not "chains"; they don't rattle! 460101

I found the preinstallation check list and install procedure easy to use. These are the easiest chains I have ever installed or removed. I can install both chains in 5 minutes and you don't get wet or dirty doing it. They worked great on my Volvo AWD. Making those areas I had problems with before a piece of cake. One note of caution, make sure you tightened the attachment to the lug nut secure. If you don't the chains could come off while driving. And you might not know it! My Volvo lugs have very shallow nut to attach to, I think I'll look into lugs with more depth. All in all very satisfied with my purchase . 333803

Review from a similar Konig K-Summit in Tire Chains


I appreciate the follow up to ask about my experience and to be honest I'm a little disappointed. I only needed the chains for a short drive (about 2 miles at most) last year and they worked as advertised. That's great. However- this year I needed them for a similarly short period - only a few miles - and one fell off whilst I was on the highway. I didn't notice at first but a passing motorist flagged me down. I had to walk over a mile on a dangerous stretch of highway, in the snow and ice to retrieve it. I had read reviews of others who had lost their chains whilst driving, chalking it up to user error, but now I know different!! 351678

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. 348371

Review from a similar Konig 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! 326170

Bought the chains for a stay in Truckee. We never got hit with snow that required chains but I put them on as a test before the trip and they went on easily. Don't know how they work over an extended period but they seem good and etrailer.com was great in helping me get the chains adjusted properly as the directions could use a few more words to go with the pictures. 337457

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 454929

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. 409107


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.

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. 8216

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. 610832

Hands down best chains on the market. No better feeling than pulling up next to people doing the chain shuffle and being done by time your hands even get cold! These chains payed for themselves the day they showed up. K-summit chains allowed me to plow through 16 inches of snow in my VW passat to get my child to the hospital in an emergency situation. Only issue I've had is I drive crazy in the snow and threw off my chains twice. Easy on and easy off. Perfect for people that live in the mountains. I put on and take off 3-6 times per day with no issues. Absolutely love them. 6 out of 5 stars! 608029

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 590778

  • I checked the owner's manual, and found that for your P245/70R-17 tires, Jeep recommends using low profile chains like the Konig Tire Chains, part # TH02230K77. A low profile chain is called for because of the limited clearance between the inside of the tire and the suspension and braking components. Jeep makes no mention of warranty stipulations. Jeep recommends that you use chains on the rear wheels only, and recommends you limit your speed to a maximum of 30 mph. I'll link you to...
