Try the installation before you leave home! Instructions included but mainly a series of confusing pictues that seem to include multiple models- worthless. Go to YouTube to see a installation but don't expect to do it as quick in practice. My biggest problem was untangling the chains. Once untangled, installation is not that hard. After a short distance the chains knocked against the wheel well and I had to stop and tighten them. No problem, but it seemed like 30-35 mph is about all the speed you'll want to do with them installed. During removal take care to not drive over the red latches as you drive out or they'll break or bend. Also, you'll need to stop with the cable in top dead center as you installed it, or it'll be hard to reach to unhook. Once on though, they'll do the job like nobody's business.

Compared with other brands, I'm convinced that the Thule CB-12 tire chain system is an economical and efficient traction system. I have used them on my 2013 Volkswagon Jetta Sportswagon this winter have am very impressed with their ease of use and outstanding traction. If you are looking for a chain that fits and works, Thule is the way to go!

I was very uncertain that this product was not as good as it appeared....But it was....We have yet to have snow so I've been practicing putting them on and off..Piece of cake!..Will probably need them soon.
