Affordable Snow Tire Chains for Tire Size 205/50-16


Will the Thule cb12 fit a tire that is size 205 50 16? If not can you recommend an affordable alternative?


Expert Reply:

For your tires sized 205/50-16 the most affordable (currently) set of cable/chains are the Titan Chain # TC1134 chains. They are in the classic ladder design and have twisted links for improved traction. These are also Class-S qualifed if your manual calls for the S-Class low profile design. At the mid price point you can get the Titan Chain # TC1830 which features V-Bar links that really take hold on ice. These are built heavier and will last longer.

I also recommend tensioners to keep the chains taught and make installation easier. For trucks and SUVs use # PW99 and for cars use # PW100.

Be sure to consult the vehicle owners manual for information on the use of chains. I have included some links to FAQs on tire chains for you.
