Safety for a snowy day

Have not had to use them yet, but they are easy on, easy off in a garage setting, that's for sure. It's looks to me as if they will do the trick nicely on an AWD vehicle.

Thule Konig CB-12 Tire Chains

Easy to put on once untangled--that's the hardest part! Since we have had them only a short time, not sure about overall quality or performance in snow.

They don't fit!

The chains appear to be of a nice quality and are very easy to put on with their color coordinated indicators but the draw chain is no where near long enough to correctly tension the chains. I'm sure they can be used with additional bungee cords but that is not the point of buying a specific item for a given application.

cb - 12 size 90 Hyundai Veloster

Easy install,taking off more difficult but only installed once taken off once. I will say it will become a breeze with more experience.Makes me feel safe in deep snow gets around well.Cannot run over 25 mph without being annoyed on cleared pavement but chains are not meant to be run on clean pavement anyway.I drove about 40 miles on clean pavement meaning no snow or ice chains held up no breaks. Thule cb12 will work for me since I might only need to chain up 2x a year.

Great, but practice attaching them before you're on ice!

Great product, great price for what you get. But if you've not installed chains of this style before, you will definitely want to practice once before you're in the cold with numb fingers and a crosswind blowing your directions around ;) It's not rocket science, but it will make your user experience much better.

Thule is great!!

Chains are very easy to install (5-7 min.) and appear to be good quality. Used Youtube for installation video which helps a lot. Will not be able to evaluate the durability until they are used a little (which in Alabama could take awhile) but I think they will be fine for my use. I think for the money (used price protection with Amazon) they are a good value.

Just ok

Glad I had them, and didn't need them. I put them on once to familiarize myself with the installation. My biggest concern is the tightened connectors are plastic instead of steel, seems like they will break off quickly.

These Snow Chains save me!

Just got back from Tahoe (Dec 26, 2014) and these chains saved my car from getting stuck in the snowstorm! Be patient with installation. After few times, now I put them on with my eyes closed! I highly recommend these tire Chains! Happy New Year!

Practice, practice, practice

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.

Quick and Easy Chainge

They're a decent install, solid material. Definitely added that next level of traction, additionally some comfort here in the back country of Colorado's bittersweet winter weather shakedown.

Thule Tire Chains -- Excellent fit and finish -- easy to mount!

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!

Girl meets winter

I love my chains-They seem to be very user friendly- especially if I'm the one having to put them on in a snow event! i normally have studded tires but since I'm without a job studded tires are cost prohibited- Hopefully,i won't have to use them tons but I'm sure repetition will help my spped of application- Thx Plus they were $10.00 less than Les Swab's and I love there no brainer chains- Thx T.

Tire chains

Haven't used them yet, but if they are as easy as the ad, I am sure there will be no problem. Very impressed with chain design and appears to be very sturdy. In all seriousness, I hope I never have to use them. Next set will be for my pick up truck.
