Easy to Install
A split outside cable with two fastening positions allows for easy installation without moving the vehicle, so there's no need to stop and retighten. The traction coils are manufactured from alloy steel to increase the lifespan of the product. The Super Z6 is also designed to prevent scratching of alloy or high performance tire rims.
The Super Z6 is available to fit passenger car, pickups, and SUV tire sizes. It offers a unique combination of performance and convenience features for every user, including a "designed-in" rubber tightener, better all-around traction performance than conventional tire chains or cables, and greater durability.

The unique design also offers a low potential for damage to vehicle body and mechanical components, even when abused.
The Super Z6 SZ115 is designed for smaller tire sizes. Check the manufacturer's website for the exact product to fit your tire size. Also check your owner's manual for clearance specifications before installing winter traction products.

Top Customer Reviews
There are two broad types of traction control devices: Tire chains and traction control cables. Tire chains are actual chain links. Traction control cables are long pieces of metal cables, covered in a plastic coating, and designed to form a Z-pattern over your tires. The plastic coating is then surrounded by hundreds of tiny, round, metal springs. Cables are generally regarded as better because they are easier to install, last longer, are less damaging to roads, and work better with vehicles equipped with ABS. Also, according to SCC, you can safely drive with cable devices up to 30 mph, even on roads with no snow, without damaging them.
You should normally install traction control cables on your drive wheels, i.e. the wheels that actually push or pull your car forward. If the snow is really bad, though, you may have to install cables on all four wheels. Read your vehicle's owner's manual for more details on where to install your cables.
In any case, it's a really, really good idea to have TWO sets of cables in your car at all times. That way, if something breaks (murphy's law), you won't be stuck.
Within the traction control cable category, there are two general types of cables: Self-tensioning cables tighten themselves using a tensioner (which looks, feels, and operates like a rubber band) that you install when you put the cables on.Read more ›
That said, we've got a minivan now and are heading up to the mountains. In the great state of California, you are required to carry chains if you are going anywhere it might snow.
Our Toyota Sienna XLE has 17" wheels and 60 series tires (on a minivan? OK, now it's cool because it has 17" alloys... Oh please!) Anyway I was very concerned about the 60 series tires not having enough rubber for the chains to fit without scratching up the wheels. In addition there is only about a thumbs-width between the tire and the strut (using calipers, I determined that my thumb is 0.723" thick). These are brand new tires so this is probably worst-case. Also, this van has traction control, stability control and ABS which can all be confused by tire chains that slip and grab.
I test fit these and they exceeded my expectations. They are easy to install (I used the instructions, but I'm just that way). They don't come anywhere near scratching the wheels and they clear suspension with no problems. I don't look forward to installing them in the snow and cold, but if it comes to that I feel these will do a good job. The diagonal pattern should do a good job of maintaining relatively consistent traction so the electronics (ABS etc.) don't get confused. Construction looked robust and consistent. On top of all that, the bag was smaller than I expected and I was able to get everything back in after my test-fit.
Hopefully these and the spare tire will never be used, but they'll both be there if needed.
First-tire set-up took about 15 minutes, but each subsequent tire/installation was less than 1 minute. (Practice at home before you have to do it in the cold wet snow.)
Note: you'll be doing lots of tire-hugging to install these -- be sure to get a pair of thin, warm, waterproof gloves, which will help make installation in the cold just that much easier. Also can't hurt to have a mat to kneel on. And keep a flashlight handy for spotting the connecting-point in those otherwise dark, tight wheel wells.
