How to Install the Titan Alloy Snow Tire Chains on a 2019 Kia Sorento


Collin: Hey guys, it's Collin here at etrailer and today we have a 2019 Kia Sorento. So we're going to go ahead and do a test set of these Titan Chain Alloy Snow Tire Chains, see how they work in conjunction with our Sorento. Now the tire size on this Sorento is going to be 235/65r17. Now these alloy snow tire chains are going to be a really nice option to be able to give you better traction through any inclement weather situation. They're self-tensioning, so meaning we don't have to purchase a separate rubber adjuster like you would with a standard ladder-pattern set of chains to pull down on every side and make sure it stays tensioned. Right here is the built-in self-tensioner.

You can see that these chains are very snug on our tire. We're not going to have to worry about them clanking around at all or doing stuff like that while we're driving.Now these chains are going to have a diamond pattern on them. That's going to provide you with more coverage around the tire when compared to a ladder pattern set of chains. So it's going to be a smoother ride also because you're almost constantly going to have part of your chain in contact with the ground. It won't be like a ladder pattern set where it kind of feels like you're going over a ton of little speed bumps.

Now with the cross links, we have these square links that are going to really dig into that snow and ice give you the bite that you need to be able to stay on the road safely during any inclement weather situation. These are also SAE Class "S" certified and that means that they're good for vehicles with limited wheel well clearance like our Sorento. You can see there's not a lot of space up here, not a lot of space back behind our tire, but these chains will not interfere with anything, any of the mechanics on our steering or anything like that.These chains do come in a quantity of two and they do have this nice carrying case. It makes for very easy storage. Now you can see we have them installed on the front of our Sorento and that's because these are front wheel drive vehicles.

However, like this Sorento, if yours has all wheel drive and you want to have a set for the back tires as well, just give you some more traction, just use the same part number. When I'll be going over some of those features, I'll show you guys how to get these installed. I always recommend doing this before you go out in inclement weather situation so that you know exactly what you're going to be doing when you're out there. Now the first thing you want to do is lay out your chains flat on the ground and you just want to make sure there's no kinks or twists in the length and also no broken links. Once you've gone through all that, what we're going to do is slide the chains behind our tire.You can kind of see how there's a split right here.

That's kind of be where it splits on each side of the tire. So this side, this red channel is going to go right here. The side with the gray chain, goes right under there. Do you see how I'm kind of lining it up right there I'm going to do the same for the other side. Now what we'll do is grab both sides of this cable and bring it up behind our tire. Again, like we talked about, there is pretty limited space up here. And we'll just connect it right there. Then you can kind of let cable sit behind your tire. Keep ahold of the chain and then we'll kind of pull it and drape it over the top and sides of our tire. While we're holding onto it, we'll make our first connection up here. We can go to the second yellow link connected on that green hook.If you find that this is too tight or too loose, you can adjust which of the three links that you put on that green hook, but we'll keep it at the second one for now. Now we'll take this great chain. We're going to feed it into that channel. We're going to pull up on it till we get a hook linked in. We'll get a link right there and we'll feed the excess through these red loops. And then for the self-tensioning system to kick in, what we're going to do is follow the yellow links as far as we can go with this hook and put it on. I'm going to come from the backside just like that. You can see we've got a nice snug fit. And then you want to repeat this process for the other side. Now once you have both chains installed, what you want to do is drive forward a little bit and then stop and get out and just make sure you don't need to make any adjustments. You can see we've got a snug fit on our chain, so we're going to be good to hit the road.Well, thank you all for watching and I hope this information helped you out, but that's going to do it for our test fit of the Titan Chain Alloy Snow Tire Chains on our 2019 Kia Sorento.
