Review of the Thule CS10 Snow Tire Chains on a 2013 Hyundai Sonata


Today on our 2013 Hyundai Sonata we'll be test fitting a Thule Self-Tensioning Snow Tire Chains for Passenger Vehicles, part number TH00204100. We'll be test fitting these tire chains on tire size 225/45-18. Now this vehicle is front-wheel drive, so we'll be installing the tire chains on the front set of tires. To begin our test fit, we'll first lay the chains flat out on the ground to undo any kinks or tangles. This will ensure that the tire chain will fit correctly around the tire. Now, starting with the yellow end of the cable, we'll slide it back behind the tire, and bring up the two ends at the 12 o'clock position and hook them together.

We'll then drape the tire chains over the tire. We'll then connect the red hook and link at the 12l position, and proceed to drape the tire chain over the tire, making sure that the hooks are facing outward so that we don't damage the outer wall of the tire. We'll insert the gray cable into the chain tensioning device, then bring down the red hook and hook them together. Now you may want to drive a little bit to make sure that the tire chains stay centered onto the tire, and that the self-tensioning device is working properly. One great feature of these tire chains is its ability to be removed quickly from the tire.

To do this, we'll simply pull down on the small red block to disengage the two hooks at the backside of the tire, and the chain will simply fall off. And that completes today's test fit of the Thule Self-Tensioning Snow Tire Chains for Passenger Vehicles, part number TH00204100, on our 2013 Hyundai Sonata.
