OK, we've had our first real snowfall this week and I got to try out the chains. Our driveway is dirt, 80-100 feet and about a 30 degree slope, so this is where I really need traction help. With these chains on the Cruiser I went from a dead stop at the bottom of the driveway straight up with no problem at all. These things really work! I don't drive a lot, and won't need to drive in the snow very much at all, so durability probably won't be a problem, but I'll update again if there's an issue.
At the start of my second winter using these the first real problem has come up. Got some wheel spin going up the aforementioned driveway and the car started to slide sideways, causing one of the chains to to slip toward the inside of the wheel and get caught on the suspension. Did a good job of destroying the chain but no damage to the car.Read more ›

I wish I had seen that before. Mine fell off on first travel to Big Bear.
Yes they were easy to install, but I never had a chance to try the removal. They also had a ton of grip, much more than metal chains. Though I would say that's a negative as it makes the car feel too imbalanced in corner entry, as the rear tires have way less grip and it makes the rear end loose. You will spin entering corners if your car don't have a good traction control to catch the massive oversteer you're going to get with the Easy Grip. The oversteer is less pronounced with metal chains.
In fact, I don't know why anyone would want to bring those for "emergency use", as they cost more and the box is bigger. The extra 5 min it takes to install real reliable chains is well worth it. Don't be lazy and get real chains.
- Easy to install
- More grip than metal chains
- Look cool I guess
- Not for travelling
- Not approved for California
- Fall off too easily
- Too much grip, imbalances the car handling too much
- Cost more than real reliable metal chains
- They take about twice more storage space than metal chains
I will try to return the part as soon as I can.

This product was terrible. They were not the right size and didn't fit on my tires at all. It was a waste of my money and time trying to get them onePublished 18 days ago by Amazon Customer
did nothing in the winter. Gaps between cables got full of snow almost immediately just got rid of them after 2 uses.
Hard to attach, even harder to keep on if not centered. Read more
I found installation to be much easier when the car's drive wheels where jacked up slightly off the ground, so as to slide the entire unit over the wheel at the same time. Read morePublished 9 months ago by Steven P.

they work great, easy on easy off and you have sense of security and traction while everyone else is unpreparred and should be off the road with their bald ass tiresPublished 10 months ago by John D Bails
