Using Konig Snow Tire Chains on VW Jetta Studded Snow Tires


Will these chains fit over my studded Snow Tires, on a 2006 VOLKSWAGON Jetta TDI THE TIRES ARE STUDDED, GENERAL TIRES, SIZES. 255/55/R16.

I do have a solution for you, however the Konig Premium Self-Tensioning Snow Tire Chains # TH02230K66 are not designed to fit the 255/55R16 size tires on your VW Jetta. For this tire size, I instead recommend the Konig Premium # TH02230K44. These are top of the line, self-centering and self-tensioning tire chains that feature exclusive steel tensioning springs for a perfect fit.

These will fit just fine over your studded snow tires, but you will want to take some precaution, as its possible that the studs might damage the chains if you were to encounter any spots that don't have snow on the ground. I also highly recommend checking your copy of the vehicle owner's manual for any specific guidelines or restrictions when it comes to using tire chains.

I have attached the written installation details on these chains that you can also take a look at.
