Speed Rating On Thule Tire Chains TH00023090


i am driving an 09 civic what is the speed rating for these chains ?


Expert Reply:

I can help you figure out the speed rating for these tire chains.

With the Thule Tire chains like the Thule Self-Tensioning Tire Chains # TH00023090 installed the recommended maximum speed rating is 30 miles per hour.

I went ahead and checked your owners manual and Honda recommended a tire chain for you that wouldn't come into contact with the back of the tire, because of how close vital lines are to the wheel. Aternatively to the Thule # TH00023090 tire chains you were looking at, you may be interested in the Thule K-Summit Tire Chains # TH02230K22 for the tire size 215/45-17. This chain sits on only the tire treads, leaving alloy wheels and the inside of the tire wall untouched. The K-Summit Chains would be the best option to reduce the potential for damage on the vehicle. The recommended top speed on the Thule K-Summit Tire Chains is 30 mph.

I have attached a video of them on a similar vehicle so that you can get an idea of how they are installed for your convenience.
