Easy to Install Snow Chain Options for 2012 Mini Cooper with 195/55R-16 Tires


Mini does not make chains for my size tires: 195 55R 16. What are my choices? I have a bad back and am female, so I need easy on and easy off. HELP!


Expert Reply:

The Thule K-Summit tire Chain, part # TH02230K22 is without a doubt the easiest chain set to install. Drape the chain over the tire, attach to the wheel lug nut or bolt and drive away. The chains will self center and self tighten. The K-Summit is not inexpensive, but is extremely easy to install and offers great performance and a 5 year warranty.

Be sure to read your owners manual for any of recommendations or prohibitions regarding tire chain usage.
