Easy to Install Tire Chains for a 2014 Nissan Altima with 215/60R16 Tires


Hi sir, I drive a Nissan Altima 2014, Model 2.5 the basic entry level Altima. My winter tires are P215-60R-16 I need chains for a section of the road going up a slope for about 1 km, before reaching home. Normally this stretch of the road is plowed when snow comes, and sanded afterwards, but there are times when the road has a 1-5 inches of show before the next plowing, and when you need to go up the road to reach home. These times are the time I need chains... I hesitate to take the Glacier Square-Link Snow Tire chains Apart from the relatively important price difference between the 2 models of chains, I am not convinced to take the Pewag... What seems to be interesting about the Pewag is the ease of placement. Of course, when it is -20 or -40 outside, the faster you can place the chains, the better off you are. Please let me know of your thoughts about my problem.

The chains that are the easiest to install and that fit your 2014 Nissan Altima with 215/60-16 tires are the Konig "Easy Fit" # TH04115100 tire chains. They are Class-S compatible. I really think that once you put chains on and off several times that most of them are not too difficult. I would also check on the Titan Chain # TC335DC cable chains.

All of the chains listed will provide excellent grip. The main differences are the quality of material and how the chains install. There is not much clearance between the tires and the vehicle on your Altima so going with the chains that require the least amount of clearance and are easiest to install (without having to reach around the tire) would be the best option. In this case its the Thule chains.
